  • Mobile Banking Apps Development: Where To Start?

    mobile banking

    A dominant thought for bankers is, “Mobiles are venerable, It could steal our Money!”. However, this attitude is being forced to change by the current scenario of popularity of mobile devices. Sources has reported a probable figure of more than a billion of people that would used mobile banking by the end of 2017. Banks are rapidly turning to mobile applications to make their service more accessible to customers. This is also proven to be an important factor that helps a bank to stand ahead of its competitors. What the banks need to focus on is customer engagement and satisfaction rather than ROI in terms of Application development. Apps needs to be viewed as a doorway to customers rather than some technical junk.

    Why It is Necessary?

    Active engagement of customers is possible through mobile banking. No one would like to walk in to a bank and stand in the queue even for a minute skipping rigid office timings. Rather, it is more productive to give them opportunity to use the bank while traveling on a bus.

    Mobile banking provides useful insight to business analytic. It is possible to track customer behavior through Mobile Apps. The frequency of usage, transaction details, coverage area, etc could be known precisely through Apps. This could prove quite useful for banks to take the next business decision.

    Apps enable seamless communication between a customer and the bank. Customers can be also updated with New policies, products and other news quickly using this. To sum up, it is like developing a personal relationship to a customer.

    What is Important?

    A common approach is to design the apps as replica of the website. This is rather a futile idea. Apps should be different than the websites, it should put forward its features directly and made user friendly.

    The most important is to develop a custom application for the process. Although many third party apps are available in the market, banks should develop their own customized App. This would secure the apps from any vulnerability. The best idea is to hire an experienced App Development company that could develop banking apps at par government guidelines.

This dynamic application framework can satisfy almost every facets needed for an effective management of enterprises of any level. May it be a start-up, a medium sized company or a large organization, Microsoft SharePoint can cogently handle its operations.

    sharepoint outsourcing firm

    As the demand of SharePoint is rising, one will find many firms that are quite aggressive in taking the project in there hands. However, while on the process of actual development, discovery of what they lack might prove to be dreadful causing loss of both time and resources. Here we have pointed out a few important aspects that an enterprise should focus on to select the right SharePoint Developing firm.

    Don’t Mistake Trainers for Consultants

    Internet is the first place where enterprises would look for any firm to work for them. There are numerous blogs and websites that provide tons of information about SharePoint development and other materials such as “How to solve” tips. They appear to have perfect knowledge of the subject, which they might actually have. But, you don’t need a trainer to develop the application for you. They can teach, however, they might be not able to develop what you need. Therefore, look for actual consultants and firms that actually develop the applications.

    Certifications

    This would help to make out the actual SharePoint Consultants and Development firms out of the rest. Since Microsoft SharePoint go for Microsoft certified firms only. Microsoft gives certification to IT firms as product developers that can be regarded as a license to develop its product. Certified organizations are evaluated by Microsoft itself making it easy for other enterprises to judge them.

    Last but not the least, firms developing SharePoint must have a completely transparent development process. Be sure that the firm delivers an excellent communication in all the stages of development and could answer your queries satisfactorily.

  • What Is New In Mobile Application Development

    Up gradation of Mobile devices has made a huge change in the ways enterprise processes are carried out. Earlier, operating a process away from the office space was unthinkable. A big CRT box would occupy the desk with files and a guy with large spectacles would peek constantly at the screen with strained eyes. Now, one could just hold an I-Pad on one hand with occasional touch on the screen with the other, standing inside a metro train. He is not watching a movie, he is in fact processing a large file with sensitive information or working on his enterprise! This is what mobile devices has provided our generation. This has substantially reduced the need of large power hungry hardware and a boring static workplace. Just carry an I Pad, connect it to Wifi internet and work from anywhere in the world.

    mobile_apps

    The latest trend in Mobile Application is undoubtedly its impregnation to the Cloud. Cloud seems to have born that day and today, it is already an adult. Hosting enterprise applications in the cloud provide immense advantages. The first is its mobile applicability, which is also a reason for its wide usage. Since Mobile devices has considerably less Disk Space or RAM, applications in the cloud sphere are the most suitable ones for them. As they are installed in the server, only internet connection is required to access and operate them. Just an interface is required to work with them, which is provided by Mobile Devices. Application frameworks such as SharePoint are made handy for mobile devices. It would be not entirely wrong to claim that Mobile Devices and Cloud are going hand on hand helping each other to be more powerful and popular.

    mobile Applications

It is sure that enterprises will use better applications that could be easily confused to be software from the view point of their capacity and usability. Moreover, Mobile apps are rather the interfaces to massive applications in the cloud domain. They can be now considered as working platforms on devices such as Ipads and Smart Phones while massive processing is done on the cloud sphere via them.

  • How Cloud Service Works To Maximize Profit

     

    Cloud is becoming popular among enterprises due to its various advantages. The greatest of which is the reduction of cost. On the other hand, this factor is inversely proportional to profit. More the cost is reduced, the more profit grows. Let us look a bit closer to several aspects of how cloud services work to maximize profit by reducing costs.

    cloud services

    A management framework consist of multilevel infrastructure. Along with such layout, a huge work force is needed to manage applications individually. For example, the email server will need a number of employees to maintain its operations. This, in turn requires expense of maintenance of technology as well as human resources. Moving this management infrastructure to the cloud reduce such expenses. Costs of maintenance could be minimized substantially by paying only for a cloud service alone. Any required application could be deployed in the cloud domain while its maintenance is comprehensively handled by the service provider. Powerful Management Application platforms such as SharePoint are deployed in the Cloud.

    Cost of Cloud Services are nominal. Most of the cloud services are pay per use. This is quite advantageous in reducing cost because a client has to pay only for specific services. Suppose, the enterprise only needs Email marketing application in the CRM service. Unlike other services, payment is needed only for the specified Email Campaigning Application instead of paying for the whole CRM Application.

    how cloud works

    To make Cloud Services more performing and dependable, High Availability and Redundancy is provided to customers. This is included within the cost of the service without being charged extra. This services require maintenance of high power servers clusters as well as visualization. Maintaining this without cloud service will be much expensive and to some extend unaffordable. Cloud service makes this service available at a very nominal rate.

    As the overall cost of infrastructure and maintenance are reduced by adopting cloud service, agility and investment is procured by an enterprise. This make operations rapid resulting efficient production and more ROI.

Thus, using security-neutral code it is possible to build an exceptionally secure application.

    Codes implementation should be done along with wrappers. Create managed wrappers using platform invoke or COM Interop for native codes that are to be used to manage codes. The wrapper codes should be given the rights to unmanaged codes so that the callers of the wrapper could perform efficiently.

    .NET Security

    Library can be used to protect resources, as the library acts as an interface to codes that needs access to resources. The program should be coded in such a way that  codes that require access to resource undergoes a security check. Thus, the codes will require a permit before they access a resource in the library. Along with this, rights must be asserted to particular library functions to perform the operation.

    In addition to these coding practice method level encryption tools can be used. Various encryption tools can be used from third party vendors such as VMware, V I Labs, Xenecode among many others.

PHP has its own ways to make itself safe and secure, the only step that need to be forwarded is their application.

    Reverse engineering has been always a free path way for hacking. Hackers target “loopholes” in the program structure and implementation. To start with, developers must know the venerable aspects of their programming structure that might be proven lackadaisical.

    PHP securitySQL Injection

    In PHP, the most common attack is the SQL Injection. If the hacker knows the table names, a value in the url could be used to enter a SQL fragment. This is devastating as files could be deleted, copied and upload once it is accessed. The best thing one could do to resist this is to migrate from MySQL extension to PDO. This will enable to create PDO statements to separate data from instructions.

    XSS Attack

    This is a very easy attack but a serious one. It is as easy as posting JavaScript code in a forum or a blog. It is injection of code into the output of PHP script, it saves malicious data on the server platform and has the abiWeb securitylity to crush down the website. However, protection from this is also easy. Validate the input using filter functions. It ensures that every input data is of correct type and does not allow it to pass if it is not validated.


    This two forms of attack are among the most common ones. Therefore, never trust even an insider who can guess the table names of your database and never trust data from users or any third-party until they are proven harmless.

  • Best Practises In Maintaining User Privacy In I-Phone Apps

    User Data security

    User Privacy is a priority while developing a mobile phone App. This is, in fact an important parameter that determines the popularity of an App and thereby its market and eventually the success of its development. An app that respect privacy of its users while maintaining sensitive data and documents is sure to find a place among the favorites. On the other hand, an app, however massive or useful it might be will soon be deleted if it does maintain desirable user privacy. The following excerpts are from Apple’s Guidelines for maintaining user privacy in i-os application.

    Protection of User Data

    User data must be secured and protected. User data must be encrypted using on disk encryption to store them locally. Data should be always stored in encrypted format. While sending user data over the network, using HTTPs is a good practice. Many developers hold on to designing apps that request unnecessary or more data than required to accomplish a given task. This practice is unproductive as data can be vulnerable. This also creates an unnecessary dissension for the user. Minimum amount of data should be requested from users. Also, options should be provided to users to control and access data. Adequate setting should be provided to disable access to sensitive information. If the app supports audio and recording facilities, recording should be put into user control. System alert must be provided while recording and user must be given complete authority to control it.

    Maintaining Transparency

    While seeking data from the user, it it essential to provide information why the data is needed. This transparent behavior of an App makes it convenient for users. If the user does not grant access to particular information, proper reason of failure of execution should be provided.

    Following Government Guidelines

    As user data can be accessed only with his or her consent, legal implications are imposed by Governments in many countries in using user information. Therefore, while developing an app, information security guidelines from government and industry sources must be followed.

  • Why Use PHP For Web Graphics

    Personal Home Page, PHP Hypertext Preprocessor or PHP is the most powerful and dynamic programming language used in web development as well as other general purposes. It is a server side scripting language and hence it can achieve multifarious objectives of a website that cannot be accomplished using scripting language like HTML. Its power to connect to the MySQL database makes this the most useful and cogent scripting language. Websites can be used dynamically by maintaining forms, records, automating web contents among others. It is fast as does not need massive coding as that of HTML. PHP web development

    Web pages can be made responsive using PHP. Graphics are one of the most compelling aspects of PHP. Equipped with a powerful GD graphics library it can dynamically manipulate images. It can create GIFs, JPEGs, PNG, and WBMPs.

    Use of GD graphics library provides PHP programming with another major advantage. Graphs, Charts, Bar diagrams, line diagrams can be easily created with dynamic properties using this. Creating graphical data charts is easy using this language.

    PHP GraphicsPHP enables creation of image objects like circle, rectangle, oval among others that can be manipulated to draw complex designs and patterns. It supports grouping of large, complex objects and render dynamic properties to image objects.

    The graphics library allows manipulation of Z-index. It is the ability to place objects above or behind other objects. In web development this aspect is a crucial one to add dynamic visual properties. It is creation of multiple layers in a website where objects can be placed.PHP web graphics

    Image scaling is an important aspect that is required in websites. As internet users browse from devices like iPad, Cell phones that has a smaller screen size, website display is expected to be responsive. That is, websites should fit to any browser size without losing any of its property distortion of content. This can be achieved easily using PHP script. It can specify coordinates to the plane of image and scale them automatically to any browser.

  • Spring as a solution to J2EE

    Out of many reasons of J2EE for not being an exhaustive success, one is its complexity. While using this platform, it requires tedious effort to develop which seem a bit bothersome when it comes to evaluation of its performance. The Spring framework makes development of J2EE easier. This open source framework, although applicable with many other platforms, is especially useful in developing J2EE application.Spring Java application Framework

    The use of distributed object model makes J2EE code complex and repetitive. Codes like JNDI lookup, Transfer Objects and so on appears to be quite “not appropriate” to be maintained and written for any active use in the application. These practice of code duplication and excessive complexity could be addressed by bringing J2EE from the realms of a tool enabled code generator to a framework model of application development. Frameworks are flexible as single pieces of codes can be modified without any change to many classes. Spring Framework minimizes the complexities of J2EE coding by simplifying the overall process of development.

    The basis of Spring Framework is Inversion of Control (IoC) that configures application components and manage Java objects. It passes required objects to the program beforehand instead of a need to write lengthy codes to create specific functions. Framework codes calls application codes making the process a lot easier than that of application codes calling framework codes, for which lines of class defined codes are required.Spring Framework

    Spring follows aspect oriented programming. Therefore, this could be used as a versatile method to affect a large area of classes and object hierarchy. Unlike object oriented, aspect oriented programs can address particular concerns of the system. Transaction management, failure monitoring and logging are some of the typical aspects of a system. Spring unifies several transaction management API’s and coordinates transaction for Java Objects.

    Therefore Spring is a right choice for working with J2EE. It simply solves the issues that made J2EE unpopular.

  • Why Automated Software Testing better than Manual Testing

    Failures and problems in a software brings nothing but lost reputation to the developer. Therefore, while developing any software, small or massive, simple or complicated, a through and rigorous testing cannot be escaped. The process of software testing needs massive resources. Manual testing requires people, infrastructure, time and tools, on the other hand, automated testing might appear expensive for smaller enterprises. However, automated testing is beneficial with some of its striking aspects. Test Automation

    Testing is required in all stages of software development. It needs to tested for hardware compatibility, operating systems and also with compatibility with other interfaces. It is repeated on every modification of programing codes. Therefore, it becomes quite time consuming to repeatedly perform this manually. The best way is to apply manual test at early stages of development and find out the appropriate test strategy. Automated testing can be employed in latter stages speeding up the process.

    Automated or Manual, both requires considerable assets, but there is no other alternative than this two to develop a sound and powerful software. What makes automated testing better is its time saving attribute. This testing can be performed repeatedly and rapidly on the test cases are created. What take weeks for manual testing can be accomplished within hours saving time and consequently saving money.

    AutomatAutomated Software testinged testing is accurate and devoid of human error that might that might occur in manual testing. It is fast and reliable since it can execute complex cases with full accessibility to every facets inside the software. It can check databases, files, memory and internal contents of an application efficiently.

     

    To develop a robust and efficient software, automated testing is a necessity. It increases effectiveness and efficiency of testing while shortening the time required for development. It reduces the production time and hence increases the software’s availability in the market. Automated software testing definitely provides a greater Return of Investment.

  • Is Default Responsive Web Designing a Good Practice?

    Web designing has undergone much progress in recent times. It has evolved from a stubborn page that looked more like a scanned page of paper to really dynamic and responsive websites that dispenses a 3D feel. This new era of web development has achieved the gratuity of technology and coding developments like Java Scripts, J query, PHP, which are latest on the show.

    Dynamic websites

    Responsive website designing has become so popular today, that web developers are observed to use this tempting method by default. However, this is not a very popular practice that proved to be useful while managing a client. In fact, many clients are in reality annoyed by the complex visualization of contents in their websites. Here it is necessary to note down that the very websites of high end technology like J query or PHP do not use much visual stand ups. Also, the websites of IT giants like Microsoft are quite simple to look at.

     

    One of the many reasons which makes a responsive web design less popular is the complexity. Responsive and dynamic websites does look like general websites that interacts with user displaying contents in a straight forward manner. In Dynamic websites, the user interaction is quite superb with sensitive clicks and buttons that surprises them. However, if the contents of the website are not displayed in a proper and in an easily accessible manner, there is a possibility that users might not find what they were looking for.Problems in responsive design

     

     

    Also, another problem with dynamic pages is there scaling in small screen devices like mobile phones and I-pads. Responsive layouts are especially designed to be fluid designs so that they adjust themselves to browser size. This is one of the reasons Google recommended responsive layout. However, while using dynamic responsive layouts, if the design is not planned out in a right direction, it could be a mess when displayed on smaller screens. The content layout may overflow or take entirely different shapes or contents may even not be displayed. Therefore, while developing such a website the responsive scaling must be looked into carefully.

     

    One of the important reasons many clients do not choose a responsive website is because of limited browser compatibility. The term “limited browser compatibility” is not entirely correct for dynamic websites, but it is true to some extend. The only way to tackle this problem is to modify the codes in such a way that it is compatible with most of the browsers.

    client satisfaction in website design

     

    Therefore, the best practice is to ask clients about their requirement rather than a default inclusion of responsive design. It is better, when they are asked directly if they want responsive layout and dynamic design for their layout or not. They should be made known of its positive and negative aspects clearly before they take a decision.

  • Give Your Business An Edge With IT Outsourcing

    IT Outsourcing isnot a bad option but there are many things which are to be considered very seriously. Especially if you are thinking to hire people like coders, web designers and other people for technical team, you need to follow a strategy which might include outsourcing as one of the options. If you are a tech startup, initially you have to divide the workload among partners only and then slowly expand the team. Here two things can be done- to hire people directly or outsource these people. Those working from a non technical background would find it better to outsource the manpower. You do not need to convince the whole idea for those whom you are outsourcing and you are the one in-charge. Of course the cost factor which reduces the actual cost of project to half in some cases is worth appreciating. This visible benefit allows you to allocate funds for different resources. The quality of project is nowhere reduced or compromised with. Low cost does not means low cost anyhow. The outsourced company on their hand tries to provide the best work, within the range of client’s expectation which saves about 60% of your project costs. This wide gap is due to the fact that there is a difference between wage range in India as compared to western world. Software Outsourcing also has some elements to it which are easy to understand-

    Communication-

    Communication is the essence of any project. The way you present yourself to others gives a solid picture of your present and future expectations. Because you are not physically present with your outsourced team, it is advisable to look for a software outsourcing company which has a brilliant track record and customer service skills. In constant touch with emails and video chats can be done in order to keep a check on every progress and problems could be handled very well when it is discussed in a room full of experienced people. Make each other comfortably and think like there is no geographical division between you. This will give both sides of people a chance to handle work in a smart and efficient manner. The proper communication channel should flow between team members.

  • How asp.net Can Be Advantageous To Your Business?

     

    It actually stands for active server pages.NET which is developed by Microsoft. It is used to create web pages and web technologies and integral part of Microsoft .NET framework vision. As the member of the .NET framework, ASP.NET is a very valuable tool for any programmer and for developers because it allows them to build a dynamic and content rich website. It uses compiled code of languages like VB and C#.


    The main advantage of
    asp.net development is your website is the speed. The time frame is drastically reduced and thus saving your resources also. It comes with so many controls and feature rich servers which can be used instantly and right away. Developers are more comfortable with asp.net than any other framework because of its resourcefulness and its ability to adapt any changes quickly with numerous servers.


    asp.net development is not limited to any scripts languages instead it makes you to use .NET languages like C#, J#, VB etcetera. It also allows web developers to build very compelling applications by making use of visual studio which is again provided by Microsoft only. ASP.NET development which is a purely server side technology is built on a common language runtime which can be used on any Windows server to host powerful ASP.NET websites and technologies. In the early day of internet, the content of websites was static and these web pages needed to be manually modified. Therefore, we needed to create web sites which were dynamic and automatically uploaded.
    ASP was brought to meet this very basic need. ASP executed on the server side with its output sent to the user’s web browser which allows server to generate dynamic web pages based on the actions of the user.
    These server side technologies are an important contribution to the development of Amazon.com, ebay.com and many other popular .NET websites.
    Important advantages of ASP.NET are-

    • It drastically reduces the amount of code required to build large applications.

    • Your applications are safe with built in windows authentication and per application configuration.

    • Better performance by early binding, timely compilation, native optimization and caching services.

    • It is also complemented by feature rich toolbox and designer in visual studio integrated development environment. Editing, drag and drop controls and automatic deployment are some of the features of ASP.NET

    • ASP.NET provides simplicity as it makes it easy to perform common tasks starting from simple form submission and client authentication to deploy site configuration.

    • The source and HTML are together, therefore ASP.NET pages are easy to maintain and write. The source is executed on the server and provides a lot of power and flexibility to web pages.

    • All the processes are very closely monitored and maintained by ASP runtime. If a process is dead, it can be recreated which helps your application available to handle requests.

    • Purely a server side technology so it executes on the server before it is sent to browsers.

    • It is language independent and allows you to choose your language which applies the best to your application.

    • ASP.NET makes easy deployment. There is no need to register components because information is built in.

    • Web server continuously monitors the pages, components and application running on it. Any memory leak, infinite loop are destroyed automatically.

    • Easily works with ADO.NET using data binding and page formatting information. It runs faster and counters larger volumes of users without having performance problems.

      It is the next generation version of Microsoft’s ASP. Whether you are building a business website or large corporate websites, web application is distributed across multiple networks that too free of cost!

  • Increasing User Base of Smartphones To Fuel Mobile Application Development

    As per the analyst reports, the exponential growth in the smartphone users will boost the mobile apps market in India. The figures state that there will be over 400 million smartphone users by the end of 2016 in India itself. This is an impressive number, which will lead in building robust mobile applications.

    In the beginning, India was never the largest mobile user base; however, within the short span of time, it has surpassed the first world countries, after the handset prices dropped. One can witness the growth in the Custom Mobile Application Development in India as there is a driving acceleration of smartphones, including the availability of local content, bandwidth, and the relevance of the global apps into the ecosystem.

    India is positioned as the second largest mobile phone user base in the world. However, feature phone sale saw a dip for the first time in July-September, as smartphones captured the interest of the consumer. With the growth of the 3G in India, industry projections states that the adoption of 3G technology will bring 250 million users by 2016.

    The experts comment that with the initial popularity of the utility and entertainment apps, like WhatsApp and Angry Bird, users will move to local content. The initial investment will be primarily on entertainment and media segment to a large extent and will slowly move towards smaller segments. Therefore, the real challenge in this aspect will be to create apps that will persuade the users to use it.

  • Android Tops The Smartphone Market With 81% Share

    Google’s Android has nabbed 81 percent share in the global smartphone market. According to the IDC report, this has happened for the first time in the third quarter of 2013 and is now positioned as the top five best vendors worldwide. Though the iPhone is one of the most sought after product in the developed countries but now Android is dominating the smartphone market like never before.

    With the releases of Google’s new OS called as Android 4.4 or KitKat, it is said that the hike in the increasing Android numbers can be witnessed further too.

    The iOS platform of Apple is placed second with a slight decrease in the volumes due to the massive increase of Android shipment. The third ranked OS is Windows based smartphones as they has double the year-over-year change with 156%.

    However, with these increasing shipments, it has resulted in the massive failure of BlackBerry with the deficit of 41.6% year-over-year shipment volume.

    Both Windows and Android continues to strive more in the third quarter. Though, they have a different market share but the one factor that is governing their success ratio is ‘affordability’”, as told by the research manager for Mobile at IDC, Ramon Llamas, Hence, it can be said that it is the mass market that is propulsive the overall market, as both the platforms have the affordability factor to target the mass pool.

  • Large Number Of Developers To Builds Windows Applications – Says Poll

    According to the recent survey conducted by Strategy Analytics, the number of application development for Windows platform will double in the coming year. The poll was performed on more than 1,600 Mobile Apps Developers and it was discovered that at least 32 percent of developers plan to create applications for the Microsoft platform.

    Windows phone in comparison to iOS and Android lies far behind with 64 and 84 percent developers dedicated to these platforms, respectively. Mostly, the developers mentioned that the reason behind higher percentage of iOS and Android apps is primarily due to the huge user base. But with this substantial jump (as the survey shows) Windows will soon be able to bridge this gap.

    Some of the other platforms on the rise, includes HTML5 from 33 to 43 percent and Firefox from 3 to 10 percent in 2014.

    This has been really a busy year for Microsoft with its landmark deal to take over Nokia’s devices, including the merger of mobile and desktop developer accounts. Thus, it seems that Windows is all set to become the third ecosystem soon.

  • Google’s Mirror API Help Build App For Glass , Even If You Don’t Have Glass

    Google is rumored to consumer launch its Glass by the first quarter of the next year. And, if you are a developer, who wish to build apps for the Glass then you can access the API platform without even owning a pair.

    Google is now approaching the developers in two fronts, namely the Glass Development Kit and Glass Mirror API. Glass Development Kit was launched last week in New York and San Francisco. This is for the apps that want real time access to the Glass hardware and wish to display information outside the card interface. Where else, the Glass Mirror API was launched this weekend to pull in a large number of developers into building an application for Glass. The later allows, asynchronous push and pull of information from the device to display it on the card-like interface and works brilliantly on social networking sites and news apps.

    Glass Mirror API is the cloud based technology that allows development and design of Glassware apps and web based services. It assists in managing the content display of users, interact with the menu items, work with the user, and send notifications.

    This is a welcome step from Google, as the APIs will now be available to more number of developers. Hence, one can expect additional apps, robust platforms, and secure apps, once the Glass lands up on the retail shelves.

  • HTML5 vs Native app- Which Is Better For Mobile App development

    HTML5 seems to be a strong contender in the battle between native app and HTLM5. Native app was a top choice of the past. But today, according to the latest survey, 57 percent developers believe that HTML5 is enterprise ready or will be soon.

    This survey name as “HTML5 vs Native Debate” was conducted by Telerik in October 2013 with the participation of at least 3,500 respondents around the globe.

    The vice president of Telerik, Todd Anglin, said “HTML5 is a powerful technology for creating more on the web space and is one of the valid approaches to solve the challenges created by mobile.”

    The survey suggests the blurring preferences of the mobile app developers’ in order to build high end user experience and better app development experience. Developers now are taking out time to understand the practices and advantages of native development in comparison to HTML5 development. Thus, realizing that there is no ‘one size fits all’ kind of solution in the Mobile Application Development process.

    However, some developers are not convinced with HTML5 and stand for the native SDKs instead. As according to Vision Mobile, HTML fall short in five areas, namely performance, tools, APIs, education, and marketing. In contrast, Telerik defends it by saying that once the market for HTML5 matures these gaps will overcome, as it is merely a result of perceived assumption and not the technology itself.

    Further, to prove this theory, Telerik conducted HTML5 Mobile Application Challenge, where the developers were presented with two identical phones with similar apps. The Developers were asked to identify, if the app was developed in native or hybrid, as a result, developers chose the app that had a better loading time as a native build. But actually both the apps were HTML5/ Hybrid apps.

    It is believed that to opt between a native or a hybrid approach, lies majorly on the business needs, developers’ skill, app requirement, timeline, and other factors. Above all, developers need tools to develop an effective mobile application, regardless of the approach.

  • Important Points For Protecting Android Device From Malware

    This write-up will throw light on how to recognize questionable apps by applying simple techniques, which were used to identify poor rendering logos, pixelated, spelling mistakes, and unmatched publisher names.

    Protecting your Android smartphone or tablets from malware attracts should be of primary concern, if you are an Android user. As the latest research suggested that almost 80% of Android phones used by us are unprotected, even if it hasn’t been affected, it is likely to be affected due to the increasing cyber crime activities.

    Follow the steps below to secure your device:

    Trust only trusted sources to download the apps- Download apps from the Google Pay Store as this is the official app distribution channel. They scan the app regularly to detect and remove malicious code and malware apps. Also, be aware that such illegal activities come from third-party sites and should be avoided.

    Say no to side-loading– Slide-loading disables the Android security. Look for APK files with .apk extension for downloading and running. Use Google Play Store to load an app and be alert, if any source offers a paid app for free.

    Look for fake apps- Seek for mismatched publisher names, spelling mistakes, pixelated, and poorly rendering logos in order to identify fake apps. It is therefore, better to do a Google search based on the labeled publisher to measure the app’s validity.

    Install anti-virus app software- Install security software for Android. Vendors, like Norton and AVG provide anti-virus software for Android too. Such software’s helps in detecting any spyware, virus or malware in your tablet or smartphone.

    Question apps that don’t do, what it ought to do- Before you download a particular app, read its reviews in the Google Play Store. The app should do, what is indicated to do and if any app request your email id that could be an annoying source of sending promotional mails.

    Hence, next time you download an app, be sure to follow all the above mentioned steps in order to protect your device.

  • Customizable And Managed Developers For .Net Application Development

    When we say a custom application that means an application developed totally according to the requirements. For developing custom software the most important step is to analyse and understand the requirements and choose the best suitable technology for the development. .Net is the language that is highly recommended for development of secure and bug free software. Now you must be thinking why .NET? There are many reasons why people use .NET, especially when we talk about custom applications there are no open source scripts available. Yes the scripts can be customized but again that lacks security which is the most important thing that is required in applications.

    Now, this was about selecting the language but the challenge is to select the suitable experienced develop for the development. .NET developers are easily available but when we need and search for a real experienced programmer the search process become bit complex. It is very important to select an appropriate coder to get a desired product that can fulfil your expected outcome. And when we are developing custom applications the development work need to be smart and creative so that the application can be unique and effective. To develop custom software the requirement is the mix of good language with the skilled developer. There are various areas that need to be focussed while selecting a coder.

    The main agenda here will be why select .Net for development and how to select the best resource for the development work. The language is recommended for its features and the coder is recognized by his knowledge and experience. To make it more clear and understandable I will list out some of the advantages of the language and the some of the points that must be kept in mind while selecting a programmer.

    The use of .Net provides with the increased and better performance by catching services, JIT compiling, early binding and optimization. Web applications developed in this language can be more reliable than open source technologies as they are regularly controlled from the web server. Different features are provided to the programmers like drag and drop feature, auto deployment and many more. The most important feature is security as the server detects ant type of illegal activity, looping of activities or any memory leakage. The technology is independent of technology as it allows the user to select the language as per their suitability and requirements. These are some of the advantages of the technology; however there are many more that can really help any organization to increase the ROI and achieve success by the development of the quality software.

    To get all the advantages of the technology, what we need is to select the best suitable develop who can help achieve the quality product. There are certain things that must be kept in mind before selecting a coder. The first thing is experience, now when we say experience it’s not the bookish or experience in particular project, the focus should be on the knowledge that the person has the diversity of work he has done in past. The developer must be creative enough to give a new direction to the software and make it different from other rather than copying the existing applications. The quality is in the way the coder codes the application. Coding can be done by any programmer but quality coding is done by the skilled programmer. The code written must be properly commented so that it can be used by any developer for further maintenance. The programmer must be informed about all the latest tools of development so that code can be superior in quality. He must have analytical thinking to analyse the requirements and come up with the relevant solution. Coder must have a progressive thinking which can help him in his progress and he will always be positive and achieve the desired results.

    So what we must expect from a developer is the desired software or application with bug free properly commented coding and a user friendly interface that can help the user in using the application. And most importantly the smooth functioning of the software with all features working well. If the developer is not willing to provide this then he is not skilled enough to provide quality product.

    At the end I would like to say that quality customized software can be developed by a skilled developer using a secure and smooth technology. .Net application development can take a business towards success and increase the returns of the organization if a product is coded by the skilled professional developer.

  • Facts Behind The Best Ways to Get Java Developers

    For developing a Java application, May it is for any purpose what we need is a talented and skilled Java expert. A developer, who can analyze your requirement and develop an application that satisfy all your requirements and provide the desired results. Considering Java has gained importance these days and it has become one of the popular languages, searching a Java programmer is not a difficult job. However, when we say a good and skilled Java coder that is where you need to search a diamond out of stones.

    These days you might see many developers offering their services over the web or the portals available. But maybe they are not the one we are looking for or they might not be the programmers you can trust. By saying this, I simply want you to understand that there are many areas that we need to analyze before we reach a decision of hiring or selecting the appropriate Java developer.

    Also there are many areas where people get mistaken while hiring the Java programmer. One of them is that people go for experienced programmers but these programmers may be the ones who have experience with the language in books only. Such selection may lead to different problems faced by the developer during the development and it becomes very difficult to achieve the desired product. It will eventually result in loss of time as well as money. This is the reason it is said that developers must be selected after analyzing all the areas.

    Experience people show in books may be the fake experience but what we should focus is in the knowledge that a person possesses. It’s not that experience is not important but knowledge is the thing that a person must possess with experience. Only experience is not the thing that makes a programmer a skilled programmer. If we take an example, time a developer has spent working on the apps is not his actual experience, the main thing that matters is what all he learn from his experience? What diversity of experience he has? So knowledge is the thing that must be focus rather than the experience that is shown in books.

    We can also say that the person that has worked on different projects and different industries is more experienced than the person who has spent a lot of time on a single project or a similar type of work. This is because when a person works on a similar project his knowledge and experience is limited and he don’t have a scope of learning new things whereas the person who has worked on different projects in different industries get more exposure and learn new things which ultimately increases his knowledge in the language. Some people may not agree with me as there are exceptional cases but what is talking is the scenario that is mostly noticed. In other words we can also say that a system administrator will be a better choice than hiring a person who has long term experience with Java script.

    The main area of concern should be the code that the coder writes rather than the certification or degrees he has. It might be surprising that these programmers are also trained as other professionals such as nurses and writers who are no way related to software development. Similarly these courses and degrees cannot guarantee that the programmer who possesses such degrees and certifications are an expert or skilled developer. These courses are designed in such a way that it can be accessed by almost everyone so these are not the ones by which we can judge any programmer. Therefore what must be noticed in the quality of code that coder writes to judge his experience and knowledge?

    Code written by an experienced and expert Java developers is always reliable and properly commented and documented knowing about the complexity of the job. They always understand and know about the importance that code has to the project. Their appropriately commented and documented work helps the other coders in further maintenance or enhancement of the project. This ultimately helps in smooth flow of the project as the code written is easily understandable and documented with relevant comments. Experienced developers have fair knowledge of expected flaws in the project so they write the code keeping in mind those flaws so that an application that is being developed can be bug free and quality product.

    One can’t compromise here if the app is to be developed for business growth and business is depended on the application. In such cases it is strongly recommended to choose an experienced and skilled person so that a desirable product can be achieved which can actually help your business to excel.

    An expert Java programmer can help you in getting an application that is bug free with minimum possibility to crash. It will be user friendly for first time users and less training will be required. Skilled developers have the ability to make changes to the existing programs and make them as per requirements

    Hire the best developer to get the best results and become one of the best businesses.

  • The Ethics For PHP Development Company

    It comes in light from the many years that PHP development companies or we can say software companies do not have a code of ethics to follow. But this is not the case seems to be as in the first look. After we get into detailed analysis then an understanding builds up towards the software and development ethics. Morality is related to both software and information.

    Today questions arise that does the software companies ever think how these software development is affecting society whether it is affecting in a positive way or the other way round ? And what impact our actions made on the world around us.

    Morality never relies on the laws it completely on individual morals. There is “World Intellectual Property Organization” that keeps an eye on every ethical and non-ethical movement by PHP development company.

    There are a few assumptions in the software industry about ethics;

    • A framework is required for ethics in PHP development.
    • The information is not a physical object and rules are different as in the case of physical objects.
    • Software is a form of expression that will include entertainment and commentary effect on society and politics of a different nation.

    For your understanding I would like to share my experience that happened recently, A client required a similar application that is already in the app store but don’t want direct copying from existing application because it will be not ethical to do so and also against the copying law in the software industry. Somewhere it is up to you in which direction you want to go. Rules must be followed at work this will guide us in the right path.

    Morality and belief affect three important fields of software industry i.e. information, expression and copying. The first step for refining the process starts from copyright law. Our present copyright law doesn’t create to protect original developer they are bent into protection for promoting the scientific progress and useful art.

    There are much of ethics of other industry like engineering and medical are based on assigning blame when things get changed in wrong manner. But in case of software development it is not the case, it became more challenging because significant technical challenges for blaming others. If an error in made by the applicant then it is to become more different in the absence of source code to identify whether the error was really from application, operating system or database in use by the application. Because of this there are most lenient laws applied in this industry.

    Let’s take an example of the car manufacturer, car owner drive the car and is responsible for whatever is happening on the road because he/she is the sole decision maker and car don’t have any decision making power. So after delivering cars from car manufacturer they do not come under law for these kinds of miss happenings but here scenario is changed in PHP companies’ programmers did not come under these guideline not because they are not liable for their products but also they can bluntly lie about the liability. These practices are being followed frequently by companies.

    Now let’s talk about talk about the underlined points of law that decides what is right and wrong as per law. A good program makes the users responsible for the mistake, by allowing the customer about what he/she is putting the program to do. On the other hand if the customer ignored the notification and did something program not cable of then blame comes after the user not the developer.

    Certain instructions and rules must need to follow on both end programmer and user as well; some rules are explained in the line below for your reference.

    For programmers: Program must be written as per client need only focus should be only on the requirements nothing else. Never try to fool users by applying any trick on that because many of them are honest people. Those who are dishonest will automatically track down your trick in the program. If you are using other developers work then you must credit them for their work. If possible then let them access to your source code and are open to your program stability. It will reflect the quality of work to other people as well.

    For Users: Reject/deny using those applications that didn’t perform the function you request for. Before applying your instruction to the program must read the documentation of it that will let you know what it want to say and what it really meant. Request for the source code of your application and get it checked that any misguidance is not going on to mislead you. Beware if your program is not providing the source code that means they are hiding something from you.

    From this article you will get an idea about the ethics being used in this sector for betterment of users or clients. Also points to consider while making decisions for selections of programmers.

  • Most Amazing Java Development Changes for IT World

    Java has revolutionized the world of Information Technology since its release in 1995 by Sun Microsystem.  It has become the core competency of Sun Microsystem. The language derives most of its syntax from another very popular language C and C++. To run  program the system needs to have JVM i.e. Java Virtual Machine.  The JVM converts a  program to bytecode and then runs the file irrespective of the computer’s operating system. This is the convenience that this language provides. A program written in his language can be compiled and executed on any computer system irrespective of the one on which It is written. This called the cross platform functionality.

    It has proved itself to be one of the most popular languages mainly for client server  based applications. The client server applications are those that require the interaction of the application with web web services and networks. This is because the programs written in it  have the ability to interact with servers and networks that provides a real time flow of information. This ability of this language has turned to be very useful or business these days. The reason for the rise of online business communities is only because of the. It has provided a boom in the eCommerce industry. It  provides the websites and applications the ability to interact with the network. This facilitates the online payments and provide the convenience to the customers.

    The technical language has established itself as one of the most favorable platforms for developing websites and software. One of the most interesting facts about this language is that the Java application development process a take place in the modules. It means that the developers can write the program in modules which can be integrated later on to create the full program. The benefit of this feature is that now if someone  wants to have a website or a program with several functionalities but  the particular programmer does not possess the necessary expertise than the whole website or  program can be broken into different modules. These modules can then be developed in different locations by different developers but can be integrated later on.

    One more benefit that this module feature provide is that the debugging can be done module wise. So when the modules are integrated later on the final program or website will be bug free. The modules are also known as Classes. These modules or classes are developed in such a way that they can be reused later on. For example if there is a travel booking website that needs to be developed so It must be having the online payment  functionality. So while writing the codes the developer develops a separate module for online payment functionality. This module then can be utilized later on if any website or program with similar functionality needs to be developed. These modules can not only be reused but can be modified according to the requirement. The codes can be extended as well as modified.

    It has one more amazing feature which is an automatic garbage collection. In this the Java developers create different objects. These objects utilizes memories during runtime as well as when they are not in use or even when their role in the program is over. So Java runtime is responsible for identifying such programs and removing them. This ability of this technology  provides access to at the memory which is otherwise not accessible by any other method. The garbage collector can run anytime but mostly it run’s when the program is ideal. The garbage collector runs itself when it analyzes that there is no free  memory to be allocated a new object. This free’s up the memory and decreases the load on the system which intern improves the computing capabilities of the system.

    It provides the safety and security feature too. It works like if anyone is transferring the Java codes from one system to other then those codes will be scanned automatically before being saved on the system to which they are being transferred to. Even if the code is saved it will never be executed if it will be having a single bug or virus. This is object oriented programming language which means the programs are written keeping objects in mind. All codes of these are written in objects and classes. It is architecture wise neutral which provides it the portability. The portability means that the program can run on any hardware or operating system. In C/C++  the portability issues arises due to fact at the source codes run in different ways because different hardware compute arithmetic calculations in different ways.

    The Java has revolutionized  the world of Information Technology by the indispensable features it provides. These features have provided the ease of programming as well as the convenience to both the developers and the end users.  It has many features that it has derived from languages like C and C++ . It does not use pointers and storage classes that add to the complexity of the program. It is therefore simple with lots of features.

    It can also be said that it has become a trend of outsourcing the work to India. When we say , there are many companies that are working and springing up to provide quality services effectively and efficiently at a reasonable cost.

    Now there can be many questions here like why people do software development outsourcing? What choose India for the same? What makes the country best in this field? So let us discuss the mentioned areas and have a better understanding on this.

    When we say why people outsource their work then I must tell you that there are many reasons of outsourcing and it actually helps the organization in achieving the best. First and the most important reason is to deal with and to overcome the over expensive workforce and the reason of this highly priced workforce is limited resources. At the same time India is the country which is stuffed with highly experienced and skilled human resources due to which the prices offered are quite reasonable and competitive. So this is how the country becomes the preferred choice for outsourcing. One of the other reasons why people outsource their work is to focus on their core competencies and outsource the extra work to the companies with experts who can provide them with the quality work. Here also country takes a lead and becomes the advantageous deal as the companies in the country are technologically advanced and comply with the ISO standards. I must tell you that more than 70 per cent of the companies in the country are SEI-CMM companies for whom quality is the utmost concern.

    So these were the two main and the most important reasons for which the people outsource and India take a lead in being an advantageous deal. There are many other reasons such as cost, technology, no language barriers, education system of the country etc. By this we get an idea on why India is treated as an advantageous deal when it comes to software outsourcing.

    Another area we should focus here is how to select the company when outsourcing work to India. There are many points which must be kept in mind while selecting or choosing the software company in the country. Let’s quickly have a review on these points.

    It should have qualified human resources and  good infrastructure facilities

    • It should be process driven rather than being dependent on human.
    • Skill set of the employees must be examined before selecting a company.
    • It should have the certifications such as ISO, CMMI which reflects their quality policy.
    • Software development Life cycle adopted by the company must be understood and it must be examined that how it has been implemented in their previous work.
    • Cross check can be done by checking with the existing clients of the company.
    • It must be checked if the intellectual property rights are maintained and not misused.
    • Policies must be reviewed such as after sales services and risk management.

    So these were some of the most important points that must be taken care while outsourcing work to a software company. A company that uses its skilled and experienced resources to develop a quality product by using a best approach to software development keeping in mind the security of the project is considered as a perfect software development company.

    At the end I would like to conclude that country like India can prove to be the best place to outsource work and perfect quality products can be achieved if a good software company is selected.

  • The battle for choosing a right Software Development Company and how to win it

    For any company which wants to outsource its software related requirements be it a local company or a company which has its operations based out of the country where development is going to take place. Well people tend to think that if we outsource our  requirements locally it would be easier to  get the work done in terms of some legal issues, issues related to constant communication with the outsource company individuals, constant update on work, as well one can physically view the premises of the local software company just to verify that it has enough infrastructure/resources in terms of manpower and skilled personnel to get the work done, also in case of any legal issues related to copyright infringement and issues where the company’s business model could get exposed to outsiders and issues related to government wherein currently the government is giving a push in terms of information technology companies providing them with special economic zones it’s possible that the government later changes its mind and comes with new frameworks and rules in terms of increasing taxes thereby causing losses to the company involved in the sector.

    However in this era of globalization, outsourcing of software related services companies located locally is not a good idea. The reasons are:

    • It turns out that outsourcing locally is far more expensive than to outsource it to a third world country like India or Philippines, sometimes up to 2-3 times of the difference in terms of outsourcing locally to a vendor.
    • Apart from the cost factor which is very significant factor in all outsourcing projects is availability of the resources in desired skillsets. The availability of domain experts in a particular domain is difficult to find with so many new technologies coming in day to day life along with people switching over to new technologies which gives them more salaries as compared to remain stuck to a particular technology. For example nowadays it is very difficult to find experienced people in Mainframe technology as very few companies use it nowadays however still many companies especially in the banking sector still use mainframe technologies as its quite robust and secure and currently they do not have an alternative which is as robust as mainframe based platform.
    • The other reason is why people tend to outsource globally is that company’s get a lot of options from various companies along with different solutions/estimates offered by each company so that they have a huge number of choices available from while making a decision. Since a lot of options are available to companies/individuals which want to outsource they prefer the one who has the highest experience with skilled personnel along with some who can deliver quality within the expected timeframe and the budget to be adhered to not someone who initially quotes a very low price just to grab a project and then gives so many change requests so that the overall project cost becomes 2-3 times the initial budget planned for the project.

    Companies/individuals who want to outsource their requirements have to be very careful before they choose a vendor who is going to fulfill their requirements. The points they can keep in mind before outsourcing are:

    • View the previous portfolio of the projects along with the technologies in which they were implemented.
    • Whether previous projects were implemented within the timeframe proposed or reasons for delay.
    • Feedback from previous clients about the project executed.
    • Reputation in the market as a brand.
    • Social presence in social media tools such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter etc.
    • Case Studies and Patents developed by the company.
    • Duration of the company in the market, the no of employees working in the company.
    • No of offices through which the company is operating out of which how many are sales and how many are development offices.
    • Style of working, Whether CMMI level certified Microsoft Certifications is a plus; Project Managers who are PMP certified are preferred.
    • Ability to converse in English fluently with neutral accent is preferred globally and is one of the main factors nowadays companies in The United States look out for before awarding a project to a vendor in a different country as communication plays a very important role in the successful execution of the project.
    • Availability of the company to provide support resolution 24*7 to ensure that any kind of bugs or post implementation operations are smoothly carried out.
    • Proper documentation is extremely important, any organization where proper documentation is not created leads to chaos, ambiguities in terms of understanding and in worst cases lead to legal cases which is a loss for both the parties involved as it affects their work and operations. Creation of a proper Scope document which forms the basis for a base reference wherein the work can begin. Before making any changes to the project all the parties consent must be taken.

    India shall continue to be the driving forces behind the Outsourcing of IT Projects globally.

Since the major part is technical so there is always the need of technically experienced professionals to analyze and fulfill the requirements.

    Today no sector whether it be Telecom, Education, Manufacturing, Mining etc. is untouched by information technology and its applications. The information technology not only optimizes the business but also helps in making it profitable by decreasing the wastage of resources.

We have developed compilers, middleware and scripting technologies that have increased the programming speed leading to faster development of software. We have developed the best technology for detecting bugs and malwares in programs irrespective of their development platform. This has also enhanced the quality of the end product.

    The availability of skilled professionals is also a major reason why India has emerged as a super power in the field of information technology. India produces has skilled IT professionals that become the backbone of IT industry later on. The IT industry is totally dependent on the skills of the professionals involved. According to a NASSCOM survey India faced a shortfall of skilled professionals in 2010, this happened because Indian IT industry was at boom while the education system was not producing the skilled professionals at the same rate as required.

    According to a recent survey it has been revealed that 70% of income for information technology sector comes from overseas, while it employees 1 million people directly and provides employment to around 2.5 million people indirectly. Indian IT sector specifically domestic market has shown a growth rate of 12% after the global slowdown of 2008-2009 which is more than as compared to any other sector in the country. India’s IT sector has developed at a rate which is more than the development rate of IT sector in United States.

    One of the major reasons for such a growth is outsourcing. Most of the business that Indian IT sector got is from outside the country that happens because of the availability of best technologies and skilled professionals as cheaper cost as compared to anywhere around the globe. Indian IT companies are foreseen as pioneers in the software design and development because of the innovation and the zeal to provide best to cater the needs of clients.

    The major clientele to Indian IT sector is from United States and Europe this is because the Indian IT professionals apart from being technically well versed also have good command over English language that eventually lower down the barriers between them and their clients. The communication is the key to provide the best end products. If a company or a professional can understand the exact requirement of their client than only they can develop a product that fulfill the clients requirement.

    Outsourcing has not only provided jobs to Indian IT professionals but has also let to an increase in the GDP of the country. Keeping this in view the government is also focusing on policies that in future will add up to the IT sector which includes foreign direct investment in IT sector. The govt. policies also plays very important role in development on any particular sector. In case of IT sector govt. is focusing on making the business rules simpler and faster so that any company that want to invest in Indian IT sector would not face any barrier. This along with many other factors has proved to be a boon for Indian IT industry. This has been a major reason for the rise of outsourcing companies specifically in software market. Outsourcing though has become an issue with countries who are outsourcing their software projects but the profitability provided by Indian IT industry has helped overcoming hurdles involved.
