Develop a Competitive Edge
Depending on the type of business you own, web application development can be one of the most powerful components of your software ecosystem. Web apps are used for a number of different businesses from construction lenders to social networking applications, and can help enhance business productivity, increase customer engagement, or allow businesses to deploy innovative ideas into entirely new markets.
Web applications are run completely within a web browser like Chrome, Firefox and Safari with a backend service running on a web server. Modern advancements in browser technologies, along with consistent improvements in computing devices, internet bandwidth and security standards have allowed web apps to evolve to replace clunky and dated desktop applications.
The advantage of web applications is that they are ubiquitous, accessible across many devices with the only requirement being a web browser. This allows companies to provide the maximum outreach and the least amount of friction for customers to interact with their brand, product and services. And with the advent and increasing adoption of Progressive Web Apps (PWAs), companies are now provided with even more capabilities to meet the needs of their users and business operations.
A good web application development company will be able to advise and know how to best execute a web application so that it can run efficiently across multiple browser environments, both on and offline.
How Are Web Applications Developed?
Web applications are developed by companies that specialize in web app development services. Initially, a web app development company will consult with its client to understand the product requirements and develop a specifications document such as a product requirements document, scoping document or wireframe. Significantly important to this process is the careful consideration around the user interface, as all web apps require an intuitive interface layer to enable simplified interaction with the user.
From there both the web developer and the client can mutually agree on the functionality of the product where it is then architected by a web app development team into its discrete components such as front end, APIs, and data model. Related to this process would be choosing an appropriate cloud services platform provider such as Amazon Web Services, and designing the infrastructure to host the application.
The web app is then built by these teams under the direction of a project manager and a technical lead. The client will have the opportunity to provide feedback, input and direction throughout this entire process.
Typically, a web application will be available for internal and client testing before being deployed to "production" or the live environment for public visibility. After this, the web app can continue to be enhanced, iterated upon, or otherwise maintained and supported as it sees use with a client's customer base.
How Long Does It Take to Develop A Web Application?
Web application development can vary in timeframe from a few weeks to over a year, depending on the complexity of an application. Enterprise systems with complex functionality spread across multiple disciplines, departments and product features may evolve over the course of years.
The reality is that most web apps are developed in a timeframe somewhere in between these two with most minimum viable web applications taking only a few months to build.
