Modern Application Development

Overview

The success ratio of Application Development (AD) projects has typically been unflattering. We understand the definition of “success” is subjective and varies depending on whether you ask business or IT. Keeping that aside, a post-mortem of the application landscape and the projects will reveal one or more causes.

  • Inefficient ways of tracking and monitoring health of the program
  • Business doesn’t see the application till very late in the lifecycle. When they see it, it’s typically very late
  • Automation as an afterthought
  • Success of AD programs is typically dependent upon a few star developers in the program
  • Most of the scaffolding around an application (viz. DevOps, logging, data access layers, application monitoring, test cases, etc.) need to be designed and implemented in every AD project leading to duplicity in effort and increase in the program cost

The above problems are only going to increase with applications that leverage modern technologies. When we refer to modern applications, we mean applications leveraging one or more of the following concepts:

  • API's
  • Micro-services
  • Analytics infused applications
  • Responsive user experience
  • True agile using SAFe and/or Spotify models
  • DevOps baked into the application development lifecycle
  • Cloud First and Mobile First architecture
  • Ops ready applications

While building applications leveraging the above concepts is not difficult, the challenge lies in bringing this ecosystem together in a modern application development platform. We offer such a platform, as a part of our application development services, to design, build, deploy, and manage the modern applications.

Offerings

Cloud Native Development

Enterprises are moving away from ‘cloud ready’ applications to ‘cloud native’ applications. Our platform based approach to development brings together application frameworks, platform runtimes and infrastructure automation.

APIs

We offer services in API landscaping and discovery, API adoption, API conception & design, API development & testing, and DevOps for APIs. Key technologies used are - APIGEE, MuleSoft, WSO2, Pivotal and CA APIM

Microservices

Microservices provide functional independence, easy cloud adoption, scalable, loose coupling & improved performance. We offer microservices maturity assessments (consulting), microservice conceptualization, development & testing, cloud configurations & cloud deployments.

DevOps

Services include non-PowerPoint based assessments, making processes leaner and efficient, adopting principles of immutable infrastructure, CI/CD and innovating at scale in the context of the enterprise.

Low Code Platforms

Low-code development platforms enable accelerated delivery of business applications, provide a range of pre-built middleware services, eliminating the need for developers to rebuild the wheel for new initiatives. We also offer platform selection & low code application platform as a service

Mobility

We enable enterprises to build unified digital channels using mobile, NextGen web and messaging apps. We advocate an "omni-channel digital strategy" and provide "advise to execute" services with a mobile first approach
