What is custom software and application development?
Developing a custom application or software refers to the construction of a computer system, deployed on desktop computers, cloud servers or portable devices, and that provides functionalities tailored to the specific needs of its users.
Benefits of custom software development
Among the main benefits of a personalized technological solution, we can highlight:
- Is designed and built according to the needs of the company, in terms of processes, graphical interfaces, infrastructure and IT resources, etc.
- Reduces the resistance and learning curve of the users who must use it.
- Allows flexibility and scalability in the face of changes in business or market processes.
- Facilitates integration with other systems by having the possibility of building custom interconnection bridges -API-.
- Is less expensive in the long term, since it transforms into investment what would be a perpetual monthly expense when using an external SaaS -software as a service-.
Types of Applications
They are those that run on the internet through a browser. These applications are deployed and their data is stored in infrastructure mounted in the cloud, so they can be accessed from any location, without the need for local installations. You only need an internet connection, a web browser and your access credentials to start using it.
They are those that are installed on tablets and mobile phones. One of its advantages over a web application is that it allows the use of the internal resources of the device that contains it, such as: Camera, GPS, Bluetooth, Storage, among other resources available on all smart mobile phones.
This type of application can be local (offline) as well as connect to the internet to access data in the cloud, just like a web application. Another advantage lies in the easy and fast access that users have to use it.
Agile development and its benefits
At Rokket Labs, we work with an agile development methodology based on the well-known SCRUM framework, a framework that allows to deliver value quickly and be highly flexible to changes throughout the development process. One of the main benefits of using agile methodologies is making it possible for highly complex projects to be solved in a simple way, since it facilitates the handling of high levels of uncertainty during the project.
To achieve the above, iterations of between 1 to 4 weeks of development are used and that deliver a 100% functional increase of the software as a result of each iteration. This facilitates feedback with users quickly and continuously over time, quickly controlling any deviation or anomaly that occurs during the construction of the application.
