Development: The Best Tech For The Job

Updated: Jun 23, 2020

One of the most challenging tasks when entering the IT/software industry is choosing your ideal selection of technologies to work with. There is so much out there and it can become positively overwhelming. As a client, it is difficult to know what tech makes the best products and what might work best for you. This decision becomes even more difficult if you are not in the development industry.

The IT and software spaces have absolutely boomed in the last 10 years and it is crucial to stay up-to-date. There is a huge push, to have technologies that can be integrated. The reason for this is simple; you want the best product, so you utilise the best aspects of many different software types. This ensures the most efficient and targeted development. Many tech companies have altered and manipulated their products in order to allow for this. There is no use in having a beast of a product if it doesn't play nicely with others.

At Innovative Thinking, we use different technologies that we trust to assist us in developing the very best products. From years of experience, we came to the conclusion that Ionic is the best app development framework for us, or at least for now.

So what exactly does that mean? Ionic is an open source platform for building mobile and desktop applications using web technologies such as HTML, CSS and JavaScript...lots of very technical words. To put it into more basic terms, Ionic is a tool that is made up of many different components, each with a specific function. These components can be as simple as a page header or as complicated as an electronic signature. This makes bespoke software development much easier, with a more targeted outcome. Ionic is our main technology of choice as it allows us to develop robust applications that still have a user-friendly and bespoke feel to them.

This platform integrates the development of web and mobile applications, negating the need for two separate software stacks. This makes development quicker and more streamlined. But what does this mean in terms of your application? We can develop bespoke, user orientated apps that are easy to maintain and won't cost you an arm and a leg.

Of course, Ionic cannot be used alone and many other technologies make development possible. One of the biggest contributors is the choice of database. Most applications require a database in order to store information. This could be user info or app specific content.

Firebase is a Google owned NoSQL database, that is our DB of choice. It is a real-time database which makes storage and retrieval far more efficient. It is easily applied in Ionic applications and is very reliable. This database stores data in Google's cloud which ensures that all info is secure and has severe security measures in place. This ensures that your confidential information cannot be accessed or hacked.

It is with this combination of technologies and many more that we develop such high quality, easily accessible products. For more information on our app pricing packages, visit the App Development page on our website.
