Traditional vs. Tech-driven Mobile App Development

February 15, 2017

Resources and timeline play a crucial role in staying ahead of the curve in today’s highly competitive business scenario. Be it a project execution or an enterprise mobile app development; companies need to think about spending time, money, and resources while meeting deadlines without compromising on quality.

Today, when enterprises want to mark their presence across both iOS and Android platforms through a seamlessly performing, attractive application, it is necessary to compare both traditional and technology-driven cross-platform mobile app development.

Traditional way of cross-platform mobile app development

You need an app designer, a backend developer, and two separate developers for iOS and Android platform respectively for developing a tailored mobile app. That’s not all. Depending on the complexity of your customized app, you may require a team of developers for backend development as well as for both Android and iOS versions.

Here are the roles and responsibilities of each member of your app development team:

App designer

An app designer takes care of UI design part as per the UI guidelines. It is the responsibility of an app designer to come up with an interactive and attractive interface for your app.

Backend developer

A backend developer covers services related to server setup, DB design, and CMS. API development and app maintenance are included in the backend developer’s responsibilities.

IOS app developer

Your app’s iOS coding compatible with SDK is done by an iOS app developer. An iOS app developer is also responsible for testing and maintenance of an iOS application.

Android app developer

Do proper coding, compatible with the Android dev kit, is an Android app developer’s responsibility along with testing and maintenance of an Android application.

The result

You have to deal with multiple teams having a different skill set that deal with multiple technologies. It makes your entire application development process very fragile and lengthy due to high interdependency. You may be stuck in the complex workflow and may end the process with all messed up.

How can technology help you?

Let’s think an entirely different scenario. How about taking help from thriving app development technology? You just need a designer and a developer who can operate and access an online tool to bring a customized business application with all desired features. When the UI designer develops an interface design as per your business requirements, an app developer will just use automated app development tool to develop a customized application.

A cross-platform app development tool takes care of Backend, DB design, testing, maintenance, and API development along with all other necessary development aspects while sticking to SDKs given for both Android and iOS platforms.

The result

All you get is a standardized app development process with a transparent workflow. You can save big bucks on resources and get the quality mobile app with the help of lower interdependency. You can just focus on creativity, and the platform will convert your creative idea into a stunning application. In a way, you can avail higher productivity that can reflect in higher RoI.

What’s more, with a fundamental coding knowledge, you can develop a customized app by yourself using such an automated app development platform that requires writing minimal codes with built-in coding.

Wrapping up

In brief, a tool-based app development process is handy when rapid app development (RAD) is your requirement. You can get a cross-platform app at affordable rates with an extendable source code that offers you full control over an app. Also, you can get a futuristic app ready for handling the future challenges.
