The pandemic has brought us all to the world that needs evolution. It demands us to change our lifestyles and adopt new ways to live with the virus and still prosper. We need new technologies that would help reduce the coronavirus spread while assisting businesses to stay open. Our society needs to become more resilient in facing the pandemic and various other threats. In these times of lockdowns and quarantines, technologies are playing a critical role in keeping our society functional. These technologies will bring evolution to our lifestyle and would have a long-lasting impact even beyond COVID-19. The pandemic has accelerated ten key technology trends that would even flourish after the pandemic. These trends include digital payments, telehealth, and robotics. Let’s understand how these technologies would be helpful post-COVID-19 era: Online Shopping and Robot Deliveries The pandemic situation has made online shopping the preferred option for the world. Today, the whole world is switching over to online shopping, and even the eCommerce sites are offering happy hours. All the online shopping requirements are looked after by a powerful logistics system. The only challenge in online shopping is ensuring the delivery person has not tested positive. Many eCommerce companies in the US and China are launching contactless delivery services. These services pick-up and drop-off goods at a designated location instead of direct contact with a person. Some companies are also developing robot delivery services. However, it is a prerequisite that the companies establish clear protocols to safeguard the sanitary condition of delivered products. These services would also continue post COVID-19 era. Digital Transactions Money comes in contact with innumerable people. Hence there are high chances of it getting affected by the virus. In this situation, contactless digital payments, either in the form of cards or e-wallets, are the recommended payment methods to avoid the spread of COVID-19. Online payments enable people to make purchases and payments of goods, services, and even utility payments, as well as to receive stimulus funds faster. However, it has been observed that over 1.7 billion people in the world do not have a bank account or secure access to digital payments. Hence, proper measures should be taken to ensure that every person has a bank account and opt for digital cash. Steps are being taken across the world to make the internet, devices, and network-accessible so that more and more people join the cashless bandwagon. These changes would make our world go cashless and implement the use of digital payments. Work From Home Culture Organizations across the globe have implemented work from home with the help of technologies such as virtual private networks (VPNs), voice over internet protocols (VoIP), virtual meetings, cloud technology, work collaboration tools, and even facial recognition technologies. In addition to preventing the spread of the virus, it has been revealed that remote work saves commute time and provides flexibility. If remote work shapes up after the COVID-19 pandemic, employers need to decide to minimize lease costs and hire people from local areas with cheaper labor costs. Also, Laws and regulations based on the detailed study must be updated to adapt to work from home culture. Distance Learning With the announcement of Lockdown, various educational institutions started offering online courses to ensure quarantine measures do not disrupt the learning process. Technologies such as AR, VR, 3D printing, and AI-enabled robot teachers are involved in distant learning. All courses starting from kindergarten to Ph.D. are available online. Hence, this could be another trending area the post-COVID-19 era. Telehealth Telehealth can be an excellent way to contain the spread of COVID-19, and with the help of this technology, doctors can provide essential primary care. This technology implements the use of wearable personal IoT devices to track vital signs. Artificial Intelligence is used to make initial diagnoses based on symptoms described by patients. The utilization of telehealth has grown during the pandemic. However, proper internet connection facilities are mandatory for this technology to be used worldwide. Hence, after taking adequate measures, this technology is most likely to shape up after the COVID-19 pandemic. Online Entertainment Lockdown measures may have reduced in-person interactions significantly, but human creativity has brought everyone online. One of the most popular trends, like cloud raves and online streaming of concerts, has gained momentum across the globe. Entertainment apps such as Netflix, Amazon Prime, and various others have earned huge user databases. Additionally, museums and international heritage sites are offering virtual tours online. Moreover, there has also been an increase in online gaming traffic since the outbreak. Supply chain The pandemic has created various disruptions to the global supply chain. Some factories and production units are entirely shot off with distancing and quarantine orders. With the increased demand for food and personal protective equipment, some countries have started implementing different levels of export bans on those items. The supply chain has been vulnerable to the pandemic with a lack of visibility on data, and lack of diversity & flexibility. Hence, core technologies, such as Big Data, cloud computing, Internet-of-Things (“IoT”), and blockchain, are building a resilient supply chain management system for the future. These systems enhance the accuracy of data and encourage data sharing. This results in the expansion of the supply chain even post COVID-19 era. Thus, what we all are learning from this pandemic is how to live with it while growing through it. The technologies implemented now would be capable of shaping our future even after the pandemic ends. Hence, all the techniques mentioned above will most likely trend post the COVID-19 era.

Blockchain is a revolutionary technology. We live in an era where cybersecurity has become a crucial challenge for personal, corporate, and national security. Two of the most vital qualities of blockchain technology are: The applications that use blockchain technology eliminate the mediators thereby providing cheaper and more efficient processes. For instance, consider the digital payments and banking apps, where the operations take place directly between the sender and receiver. Blockchain technology is a very safe and secure technology in itself. The decentralized format of this technology and the cryptographic algorithms make it immune to attack. This ensures that Blockchain technology cannot be hacked easily. Why can Blockchain Technology not be hacked? There are various reasons which make blockchain technology immune to hackers. Let’s have a look at some of them below: Blockchain technology is an integrated network of different techniques combined to deliver applications and results. It is an open code technology that can be customized in distinct formats. The core of blockchain technology is a decentralized digital ledger of transactions, however its details keep on varying. These transactions are further verified in the best possible way for a particular blockchain application. “Hashing” technique is used at regular intervals. In this technique a multiple of verified transactions are cryptographically sealed together in a data ‘block.’ The hashing technique converts the data into a string of symbols of a defined length, which cannot be reversed back into the original data. This process makes the transactions immutable. New transactions are verified to find out the current holder of an asset. They are identified by the ‘stamp’ of each data block, which is required to verify the current holder of an asset in the prior history of the Blockchain. Assets are forwarded by authenticating the transaction history leading up to the present ownership. Transaction History: If the user wants to change the transaction history, they need to apply the reverse mechanism of the sealed block. In the blockchain ledger, once a block is released, you would be lead to a different hash output. This new hash would later be out of sync with the ‘stamps’ running through the remaining chain, warning the system, which would decline the resealed block. Verification Process: Blockchain transaction ledgers are also distributed on several ‘nodes,’ which are basically computers participating in a particular Blockchain application. There can be millions of nodes in the case of public Blockchains such as cryptocurrencies. If you want to make changes to a blockchain, at least 51% of the nodes that are participating should verify that change. This means that 51% of the new transactions should meet the verification criteria. After the verification is successful, it identifies the actual owners and enables them to edit it. Bitcoin: For Bitcoin, the sender must provide: Private Key: Signifies their ownership Public Key: Signifies the ‘address’ of the digital wallet the Bitcoin is held in. Conclusion: Is Blockchain Safe? Making changes to a blockchain is next to impossible once a transaction has been sealed into a block and added to the Blockchain. You would need to reverse engineer the hashed block and modify the transaction data over at least 51% of the copies of the ledger held on various nodes. This makes it practically impossible to ‘hack’ a Blockchain.

“Data integration” is undoubtedly the most interesting subject of the tech-world these days. The customer and business are rhyming better on account of the modern data processing system. And, with data-integration being part of it, companies can take the holistic view of their internal processes and expand their business with minimum risks. Businesses from all areas are refining valuable information on various stages, whether it is the human resource, online payment, logistics, supply chain, or even social media accounts. If business owners connect all this information, it may give valuable insights into business operations and better decision-making ability.  It helps to create the roadmap to run a business successfully.  In simple words, data integration is the process of accumulating data from disparate sources into meaningful and valuable information.  However, being said so, it is essential to choose the right approach for data integration.  There are various techniques for data integration, but based on the complexity of the data extraction process, the techniques are adopted. Data integration applies to various areas like:Data warehousingData migrationEnterprise application/information integrationMaster data management Approach for Data-Integration       Step 1: Decide how you want to sync your data        Step 2: Inputting data into an integration system        Step 3: Map your systems, fields, and objects       Step 4: Setting up filters for data refining.        Step 5: Start your integration- sync historical data or start fresh? Techniques for Data-integration1)  Manual Integration: Manual integration usually involves writing code for connecting different data sources, collecting the data, and cleaning it, etc., without automation.  Right through data collection, to cleaning, to the presentation, everything is done by hand. The strategy is best for one-time instances, but it is a time-consuming and tedious process.2)  Middleware integration: It is ideal for businesses, who want to integrate the legacy systems with newer ones, as middleware can act as an interpreter between these systems. Middleware is a layer of software that creates a common platform for all interactions, internal and external to the organization—system-to-system, system-to-database, human-to-system, web-based, and mobile-device-based interactions. It is mostly a communications tool and has limited capabilities for data analytics.3) Application-based integration: The “application based integration’ technique is mostly a communications tool and has limited capabilities for data analytics. It allows the user to access various data sources and returns integrated results to the user. It is a standard integration method used in enterprises working in hybrid cloud environments. However, when there is a large volume of data, and users have to manage multiple data sources, this technique is less preferable.  The technique is most suited to integrate a very limited number of applications. 4) Uniform access integration or Virtual Integration:The approach is best for those businesses that need to access multiple, disparate systems.   In this technique, there is no need to create a separate place to store data.  The technique creates a uniform appearance of data for the end-user. The main advantage is that there is zero latency from the source system to the consolidated view for the data updates.  With data virtualization, there is no need for a separate data store for the consolidated unified data.  However, the limitation for accessing the data history and version management is a challenge for this data integration technique. It can be applied to only some kinds of database types. It means it may not handle the excess load on the source system.5) Common storage integration: It is similar to uniform access, except it creates and stores a copy of the data in a data warehouse. It is the best approach and allows for the most sophisticated queries.  The technique collects data from various sources, combining them to a central space and management (Database files, mainframes, and flat files).  Though it is considered as one of the best data integration techniques, the user has to bear higher maintenance cost.      Tools for Data integrationIBM InfoSphereInformatica PowerCenterMicrosoft SQL Server Integration ServicesOracle Data Integration Platform (DIP)SAP Data ServicesPanoplyActian DataConnectSyncsort

And, with data-integration being part of it, companies can take the holistic view of their internal processes and expand their business with minimum risks.

 

Businesses from all areas are refining valuable information on various stages, whether it is the human resource, online payment, logistics, supply chain, or even social media accounts. If business owners connect all this information, it may give valuable insights into business operations and better decision-making ability.  It helps to create the roadmap to run a business successfully.

However, being said so, it is essential to choose the right approach for data integration.  There are various techniques for data integration, but based on the complexity of the data extraction process, the techniques are adopted. 

Data integration applies to various areas like:

  • Data warehousing
  • Data migration
  • Enterprise application/information integration
  • Master data management

 

Approach for Data-Integration

       Step 1: Decide how you want to sync your data 

       Step 2: Inputting data into an integration system 

       Step 3: Map your systems, fields, and objects

       Step 4: Setting up filters for data refining. 

       Step 5: Start your integration- sync historical data or start fresh?

 

Techniques for Data-integration

1)  Manual Integration

Manual integration usually involves writing code for connecting different data sources, collecting the data, and cleaning it, etc., without automation.  Right through data collection, to cleaning, to the presentation, everything is done by hand.

The “application based integration’ technique is mostly a communications tool and has limited capabilities for data analytics. It allows the user to access various data sources and returns integrated results to the user. It is a standard integration method used in enterprises working in hybrid cloud environments. However, when there is a large volume of data, and users have to manage multiple data sources, this technique is less preferable.  The technique is most suited to integrate a very limited number of applications. 

4) Uniform access integration or Virtual Integration:

The approach is best for those businesses that need to access multiple, disparate systems.   In this technique, there is no need to create a separate place to store data.  The technique creates a uniform appearance of data for the end-user. The main advantage is that there is zero latency from the source system to the consolidated view for the data updates.  With data virtualization, there is no need for a separate data store for the consolidated unified data.  However, the limitation for accessing the data history and version management is a challenge for this data integration technique. It can be applied to only some kinds of database types. It means it may not handle the excess load on the source system.

5) Common storage integration

It is similar to uniform access, except it creates and stores a copy of the data in a data warehouse. It is the best approach and allows for the most sophisticated queries.  The technique collects data from various sources, combining them to a central space and management (Database files, mainframes, and flat files).  Though it is considered as one of the best data integration techniques, the user has to bear higher maintenance cost.

The increasing use of iOS devices across the globe has compelled app developers to build iOS apps to meet user expectations. At Openxcell, the expert and tech-savvy programmers have created a plethora of robust iOS apps for multiple categories. If you want to build a native application for iOS, you should have a look at the following mobile app technology stack based on programming languages, toolkit, and software development kit(SDK). iOS platform has always been the first pick for premium mobile app developers as it provides excellent App Profitability and App Development Environment.   Openxcell majorly focuses on Swift and Objective C as their programming language.     Programming Languages   1. Swift   The majority of iOS app developers consider Swift as the most popular iOS native app programming language. Swift is a multi-purpose, multi-paradigm, accumulated programming language developed by Apple Inc. for iOS, macOS, watchOS, tvOS, and Linux OS.     Swift language simplifies the development process of iOS apps. This programming language delivers apps that are prominent in enhanced code reusability, security, readability, and provide best-in-class performance.   2. Objective C   Objective-C is an all-in-one, object-oriented programming language that supersets C language and provides a dynamic runtime environment.     It was one of the most common iOS app development languages before Swift had taken the driving seat. However, many large enterprise mobile apps continue to run on Objective C language.   Swift is widely used and most recommended amongst the two. This language is functional and provides inline support for manipulating text strings and data, which helps in delivering less error-prone code. Additionally, Swift also comprises of dynamic libraries that are directly uploaded to memory. These libraries are created by cutting down on the initial size of the app, which ultimately accelerates the app performance.     Toolkit   There are mainly two toolsets used for iOS apps development.     1. Xcode   Apple Xcode is only accessible if you choose Swift for developing your native app. This toolkit provides a full-featured development environment that enables its users to create mobile apps and desktop applications. Xcode encompasses integrated support for Git repositories, a graphical editor to design user interfaces, instrumentation & debugging tools, and integrated documentation. This development tool is believed to be the official IDE of Apple Inc. that helps to create and publish native and gaming apps to the Apple Store. Xcode also supports the development of Mac OS, iOS, watch OS, and tv OS apps.     2. AppCode   AppCode is an integrated development platform for Swift, Objective-C, C, C++, and JavaScript created on Jet Brains’ IntelliJ IDEA space. It is a substitute for Xcode, which has started to gain popularity in the market lately. AppCode offers faster coding and supports various languages, including C, C++, and JavaScript, compared to Xcode.     Though AppCode supports most of the programming languages, it cannot compete with Xcode’s Interface Builder, which helps to design interfaces without writing a line of codes. Hence you could opt for the best toolkit according to your requirement of functionalities.     Software Development Kit: iOS SDK   The iOS Software Development Kit comprises an application programming interface that functions as a connecting link between software apps and the platform they run on. APIs can be created in multiple ways and includes important programming libraries and other tools. The iPhone SDK sets out mechanisms for Apple’s touchscreen interface and its proprietary iOS operating system. This system is used to run Apple’s iPhone as well as the iPad.     Mobile app development technologies are growing at an enormous pace. Selecting the right mobile app technology is a crucial ingredient in building a highly functional iPhone app. OpenXcell has completed more than 150 iPhone app development projects to date, whereas the team is currently working on more than 50 projects.

To deal with the rife of Coronavirus, technological advancements have showcased its fortitude by greatly impacting the lives of people across the globe. Every nation has rolled up its sleeves to find every possible measure to combat the derived need of protecting the health of its citizens. The so far applied sciences have left us amused, let’s review:Location Tracking:Stringent laws for Data Protection had bound the capacities of countries like Spain and Italy to track the pre-movements of the COVID 19 contracted people. On the other hand countries like Israel, China, and South Korea, upon relaxing these laws were able to trail infected people’s travel history. This in turn helped them in discovering people who could have been in close proximity.  Location tracking proved to be a persuasive tool in controlling the transmission of the virus in these countries.Mobile APPS:While people were still under a shocking state from spiking stats, India took a very fast and preventive approach with the launch of the Aarogya Setu app on the 2nd of April, 2020. With over 5 million downloads in 3 days and 50 million downloads in 13 days of the launch, Aarogya Setu beats Pokemon Go and becomes the fastest-growing app. By 13th May 2020, it reached a benchmark of 100 million.Aarogya Setu, meaning a bridge to liberation from disease, uses a smartphone’s GPS and Bluetooth features to track and notify users about contaminates within a 10km radius. Along with that, the user gets notified with personal health updates and a list of preventive measures and easy home remedies to boost their immunity.

This change will have a lasting effect. So, what is the change?Unlike earlier, teachers and students both have adopted technology and are able to procure the benefits from it. Various limitations have been overcome with the power of automation.That does not mean that there are no downsides to the digital education system. It largely depends on the age group you are dealing with. It is known that the attention span of adolescent children is less and requires personalized teaching. Although, corporates have largely used online training programs amidst lockdown so that the skill development and quality of work are not hampered.But lockdown around the globe amidst the outbreak of Covid-19 has forced every learner big or small to adapt to newer means of education.Edtechs in this period are seen doubling their revenues and are witnessing an inordinate amount of enrollments. Parents are looking up for various courses out of the educational boxes to keep young minds engrossed. In India, Edtech giants such as upGrad, BYJU’s and WhiteHat Jr have grown expeditiously in this period.  Platforms like upGrad may eventually change how education is ever perceived. With access to Universities around the globe at your fingertips, the race for admissions is likely to diminish. Millennials are now opting for courses that are short and can elevate their careers.Transformation is wide-reaching with obvious benefits such as:Teaching made easier: Audio/Video presentations, screen sharing and more has made teaching digitally more feasible. Physical boundaries are no more a limitation. Teachers and students come together on a single platform from any corner of the world. That’s the power of technology! Presentations or any medium can be used to deliver lessons that improve the absorption of the concept by the learners.Accurate evaluation: Most learning management systems come with features to conduct online assessments. Some platforms even provide OMR sheets for people with disabilities. Hence, we can say online teaching is coming closest possible to delivering offline learning experiences.  A sophisticated LMS provides automated tools for evaluation eliminating hours of strenuous repetitive tasks for educators.Tracking student progress: Education can be divided into various modules and with the help of LMS, teachers can easily check the progress of students in terms of performance in activities, assignments or examinations.New ways of interaction: Learning platforms offer various formats to engage the learners. Audio, Video, infographics or many other formats can be shared digitally.Comfort and flexibility: Especially for working individuals or millennial students learning in the comfort of their home in their convenient time is a striking feature that attracts them towards online learning.Final words: eLearning transformation is sweeping the way the education system works.

All the aspects of AI hardware, software and services in total are expected to generate revenue of 156.5 billion dollars in 2020 at a growth rate of 12.3 percent. By 2024, this amount is likely to reach 300 billion dollars. Out of this Software delivers approx 80% of the total revenue.AI ever since its emergence, has impacted day to day life of humans. The Power of AI is known to all mostly in the form of voice recognition. This technology is capable of converting voice to text and it even recognizes individuals based on their voice. Techno giants are competing to integrate this technology with their devices and application with a 100% accuracy. By far, advancements have been successful in achieving 95% accuracy.There are various innovations put forth by leading technology companies like Apple, Microsoft, Amazon, Google, Facebook and more. Millennials are well aware of the Alexa voice recognition app that comes with a device called Echo. Before describing this further let me put down some other developments.Echo with Alexa app by AmazonHome Pod by Apple’s SiriInvoke by Microsoft’s CortanaGoogle Assistant by Google HomeOculus virtual reality headset by FacebookThese devices bear the capabilities of scheduling meetings, booking cab, playing music, sending messages, managing emails, ordering food and much more. This brings us to how it works?With the help of AI, the voice recognition system uses a person’s speech as a sample. It digitizes it to create a unique voice template such that each word that the user speaks is broken down into chunks comprising multiple tones. These tones are converted into a template through digitization.Various components affect a person’s voice such as:Physical component: This indicates voice tones based on the shape of a person’s vocal tract. In the case of biometric speech, the waveform of the voice is used to digitize the shape of a person’s vocal tract. Since it is unique for each person, so are the imprints.Behavior component: This represents the movement of a person’s mouth, tongue, jaw and so on. It determines accents and pronunciations. However, despite advancements replicating human voice is not easy since factors like emotional state, health, etc. can cause errors in recognition.To conclude,There are basically two types of AI-based voice recognition systems: with a passphrase and without a passphrase. One with a passphrase requires an individual to use a predetermined phrase prior to command so that it can be matched. This is opposite to the non-pass phrase where a longer text is required.

It is primarily employed by B2B marketers to understand - the hardware/software used by the target market, do they utilize any marketing automation tools/stack/applications, is there any remarketing software deployed on their website or not?

To accelerate digital product and services adoption, to boost organizational capabilities and to gain an edge over competitors, enterprises spendings on SAAS based software has exponentially increased in the last few years. As of today, there are more than 8000 martech solutions available on the market.

And if you are a company which relies on adequate prospecting data, technographic is an essential element of your business strategy to enhance your marketing. Want it or not, and you must grant yourself every strategic advantage possible if you want to thrive in the marketplace. It's the era of massive data where the true potentials of technology can be realised after decades spent in darkness. And, without an iota of doubt, the influx of information we are experiencing at the moment is unsettling. 

The overall consequences of everything that is unfolding here are completely indecipherable.  However, one direct implication is that the business environment is evolving, and the success of A company would depend on the capacity of capitalizing the data. The biggest challenge most marketers are confronting today is to stand out from a rising number of competitors.

It helps you unlock new levels of personalization by improving sales productivity. One important aspect that many marketing and sales departments are not able to handle is account-based marketing. As the name suggests, this type of marketing involves a marketing department that is solely focused on a particular product or service and its benefits. Hence, the benefits of technographic data are crucial to the success of account-based marketing campaigns. One of the factors that determine the success of such a campaign is the knowledge of the customer.

It helps you identify the new opportunities and boost customer retention efforts - Depending on what is already using technology in your organization, it will be very helpful in designing a strategy. If the firm is already using mobile technologies, then knowing the specific locations of customers in real-time will give you an insight into the behaviour of potential clients.

You can gather technographic information through surveys, website scraping and third party purchasing. With the increasing number of data sets available today, the demand for efficient data collection methods has become crucial. This demand is fulfilled through outsourcing data collection methods. There are a number of providers in the market who offer a variety of such services. Before deciding on the ideal outsourcing vendor, it is important for you to first identify a good data provider.

Outsourcing data mining and firmographic analysis is beneficial especially for small firms that lack the technical expertise and financial capacity to launch up-to-date marketing campaigns. It is cost-effective and saves time. Such a decision will definitely boost up your business growth and help you meet the challenges of the market.

Final thoughts

The future depends on data, entrepreneurs and marketers can expect a lot of AI and ML-based martech in future. Technographic data allows marketing and sales departments to develop strategic plans, targeted marketing campaigns and ads that resolve real-life challenges faced by organisations undergoing digital transformation.

The developer’s firsthand experience in supporting technologies gives them an edge when it comes to improving existing websites. Websites need to be continuously improvised, and so developers need to roll out features quickly. It’s where supporting technology comes to their rescue as it allows developers to improvise and justify a website in its pure form.  Here we will see some of the technologies on which the front-end of the website is developed.  Front-end development technologiesIn front-end development, a web designer determines the look of the website, and the front-end developer will implement those designs. They use a plethora of tools or technologies to justify the design as per the requirements of website owners.  For a static website with no little responsive design, you need HTML and CSS. If you want users to interact with your website? Then you need JavaScript. If you need more dynamic and user experience? Use JavaScript frameworks like ReactJS, VUEJS, and AngularJs.  If you want to fetch some data and display it on your website? For this, one needs to know JSON or AJAX or API.The front end consists of a user interface, the appearance, and the graphics of the website.  HTML, CSS3, Javascript, Angularjs, jquery, Bootstrap, etc. are some common front-end technologies developers have to well-versed in.1) HTML HTML creates the basic elements that we view on a website.  It is the first layer of any website.  It is absolutely essential for web pages to be displayed in a browser. HTML is the markup that holds the structure of a web page together and each element of a given page that you see (block of text, title, image, side panel, etc.).HTML code ensures the proper formatting of text and images so that your Internet browser may display them as they are intended to look.2) CSSCascading Style Sheets, or CSS, is what gives the HTML visual appeal. CSS determines how HTML elements are to be displayed on the screen, or in other media. A new trend with styling is to use what is called a CSS preprocessor. These include Less, Sass, and stylists. 3) JavascriptJavaScript is a scripting language used to create and control dynamic website content. Javascript tells photos to cycle through a slideshow, images to animate themselves, or autocomplete suggestions to respond to prompts.  Once you’ve created your structure (HTML) and gave an aesthetic look  (CSS), JavaScript makes your site or project dynamic. 4) Angular JS ( Javascript framework)AngularJS is an open-source JavaScript framework, which is an extension to HTML. It helps in the development of complex web pages and has become a popular front-end technology for various web applications. The two-way data binding facility ( Model-View-architecture) in AngularJS development allows the web pages to get refreshed instead of being loaded every time. There is no need to write much code with the AngularJS framework. JavaScript is not compiled; it needs interpretation. With AngularJS, the developers do not have to actively involve themselves in the testing routine or interact with the QA team.5) BootstrapBootstrap is a powerful front-end framework used to create mobile-first responsive websites quickly. With Bootstrap, one can easily create a website that scales itself to the screen size.6) Ajax It enables web pages to be updated asynchronously by exchanging small amounts of data with the server.  Ajax can update a web page without reloading the page, send data to a web server in the background.7) JQueryIt is a lightweight feature-rich JavaScript library. It makes things like HTML document traversal and manipulation, animation, event handling, and Ajax much simpler.  Through JQuery, web pages can be updated asynchronously by exchanging small amounts of data with their server.  Ajax can update a web page without reloading the page, sending data to a web server in the background.8) Node.JSNode.JS is an open-source project and allows you to run javascript on the server.  This cross-platform runtime environment is used for developing server-side and networking applications. With Node, one can also output HTML content to the user's browser.9) React.JSReact.js a front-end framework for Web applications. Like any other front-end library (jQuery, etc.), it is happy to be served by any old web server. It allows developers to create large web applications that can change data without reloading the page.  It can be used with a combination of other JavaScript libraries or frameworks, such as Angular JS in MVC.10) Vue.jsVue.js is a JavaScript framework with various optional tools for building user interfaces.  The user can add Vue.js to his web project without any complexity because of its simple structure. Both the small as well as large scales templates can be developed through this framework. Vue.js facilitates two-way communications because of its MVVM architecture, which makes it quite easy to handle HTML blocks.11) Flutter ( Cross Platform Front end development for mobile and web)Flutter is Google’s mobile UI framework for creating high-quality native interfaces on iOS and Android quickly. Flutter’s hot reload helps to excel in the speed of the development and makes it simple.12) Ionic ( Cross Platform Front end development for mobile and web) Ionic is an open-source Software Development Kit used for building Hybrid Mobile Applications.  The ionic framework could also be used as a standalone Web Component library, or you could integrate it with Angular, react, and others.13) Visual Code IDEVisual Studio Code is possibly the best JavaScript IDE for MAC, Windows, and Linux. Not just javascript, it also supports Node.js, TypeScript, and it comes with a whole set of extensions for other languages, including C++, Python, C#, PHP, etc. There are few more editors like NetBeans, PyCharm, IntelliJ Idea, that could be helpful to front-end developers.

A couple of days back, we had a group meeting to discuss how to meet the growing demands of apps without compromising the quality. The conclusion was that it all depends on how upcoming technology platforms assist developers in building mobile apps quickly.   I am not sure to what extent this will help, but developers at Openxcell brought up a few technologies on the table that caught attention and are worth a mention here.  The mobile app industry is growing at a rapid speed in the U.S. and abroad. The statistics suggest the mobile app development space will touch nearly $935 billion by 2023. This indicates that the business is going to be highly competitive, and companies have to outmaneuver their existing mobile app developing strategies. It also means mobile app developers have to brace themselves up for new technologies that improve the speed and quality of their mobile apps.  ( image source: Statista.com)  Upcoming technology platforms for quick mobile app development   Platforms to integrate IoT with mobile apps: IoT is a game-changer technology. It is impossible to think the modern-day mobile apps without IoT integration. To make developers’ life easier, some platforms allow them to integrate IoT applications without coding them. This platform provides tools and technologies that empower businesses to rapidly develop and deploy robust applications with augmented reality (AR) experiences. The developers are now equipped with sophisticated tools for future transition, and they know it has double-folded their efficiency in all respect.            Here is the list of such platforms/tools:                 => Ubidots                 => Azure IoT Suite                 => IBM Watson                 => Oracle IoT                 => ThingWorx                 => Xively   Alfasoftware: Alpha Software Corporation has filed a patent for its robust offline mobile app development and deployment capability. The software enables developers to build mobile apps that work offline, and they are as rich and powerful as traditional ones. With Alpha Software, developers can develop offline-capable apps and offline forms with virtually no incremental effort or cost. They have two platforms "Alpha Anywhere" and "Alpha TransForm". Both platforms help developers to build sophisticated web and mobile apps quickly, with exceptional performance and scalability. Such platforms provide the developer to overcome typical issues like the performance and development speed of the apps.  Prescriptive low code development platform: The speed in mobile app development is achieved by reusing the packaged functionality rather than building all functionality from scratch. The low code development platform gives that speed. Moving one step further, few software vendors developed a new approach called “prescriptive low code development”. In this approach, the re-usable code is woven into one integrated application. These components are re-usable and are individually supported (maintained). Unlike traditional mobile apps where developer invests a lot of time in managing APIs, the new approach of “prescriptive low code development” reduces the developer’s efforts.  APM Automation Tools: Application Performance Management (APM) provides visibility into app behavior, and delivers statistics. APM helps to improve the testing and quality assurance of an app. Developers can reduce app deployment time if they know the app’s issues in advance. The graph of these tools shows the exponential growth of APM automation tools in the coming years.  AMP Framework: The loading speed of a web-page is a critical aspect of any mobile app. AMP is an open-source HTML framework that provides a straightforward way to create web pages that are fast, smooth-loading and prioritize the user-experience.  Cross-platform tools: The cross-platform development tools like NativeScript, React Native, Flutter, Ionic Framework, Phonegap, and Xamarin are playing a crucial role in the rapid mobile application development. In the coming years, these platforms are expected to enhance their features further to mitigate the developer’s need for speed.  Microservices: It is not wrong to say that the future of rapid mobile app spans through microservices. Microservices enables developers to take ownership of the entire project development cycle, which eventually improves the application development and deployment speed. Microservices had just embarked on the journey in the mobile app development world, but the real potential is yet to be discovered.   Not just the points mentioned above, the programming language like Kotlin and Swift has a significant impact on quick mobile app development.  Since AR and Wearables are the new tenants in the house, the developers have to look for better solutions to integrate them smoothly into the apps. Maybe Facebook realized this early and decided to develop its own operating-system to decrease future dependence on the third-party platform.   Now, it is to see whether developers optimize their skills to the emerging platforms, or innovate new technologies to their flexibility - or maybe both.
A couple of days back, we had a group meeting to discuss how to meet the growing demands of apps without compromising the quality. The conclusion was that it all depends on how upcoming technology platforms assist developers in building mobile apps quickly.   I am not sure to what extent this will help, but developers at Openxcell brought up a few technologies on the table that caught attention and are worth a mention here.  The mobile app industry is growing at a rapid speed in the U.S. and abroad. The statistics suggest the mobile app development space will touch nearly $935 billion by 2023.

With over 2.7 billion smartphone users across the world, the rate of mobile app downloads has also increased. The current statistics show that each year, around 200 billion apps are downloaded, and it’s estimated to reach about 260 billion by 2022. But not all those apps downloaded has a good retention ratio. The study report says that the average mobile app retention rate was only 29% after 90 days during 2017-18. More or less, it is going to remain the same in the coming years. ( Image source: Info.loyalitics) There could be many reasons for a mobile app to fail, but one common reason for an app failure you often see is the “app is not user-friendly.” As per one of the recent studies, 90% of users have abandoned an app due to app poor performance. It means if your app is not user-friendly your app has to suffer. So, on what basis can you determine whether the app is user-friendly or not? Here are the parameters: Great user interface Fast loading time (content) Strong customer support Compatible to multiple devices Easy navigation Users can quickly lose interest in apps that are not speedy enough in performance, transactions, and delivery. Let’s check some techniques that one can use to make Android application user-friendly. Techniques to create a user-friendly Android application Test app features thoroughly: Testing is an integral part of mobile app development. Testers have to ensure that the app runs smoothly under multiple unfavorable circumstances. For example, software tester has to make sure that the app performs well during high-traffic; otherwise, it may hamper the user experience. Use Android wireframe: A wireframe may not just help to show the client what application features you are developing but also the design interface. It allows developers to focus on the key components of the app, helping visitors find what they want and take the desired actions. For example, how quickly users can navigate to the “buy” button and complete the order. Use gridlines: The mobile applications that are heavily dependent on the databases can be made user-friendly by representing data in the form of a grid or a graph structure. Limit your app features: Slow app speed can put off users easily. By adding more images and features, you might make app intuitive, but there is always the risk of slowing down the app. It is better to keep image size and features limited. For example, avoid features like long registration process, automated response, and graphical features that take more load time. If users demand extra features, you can add them in the next version. Support cross-platform: You might have built an app for Android, but the best apps need to have interface features and support for both Android and iOS. Simple Interface and UI design: Don’t make your app a puzzle for users to solve. Keep the user interface simple, easy to navigate, and intuitive. Do not insert any UI elements that are slow to respond. Smart and responsive UX elements: Be selective in adding UX elements. It should be smart and responsive like "Progressive Disclosure”.When an application is loaded with information, "Progressive Disclosure" makes information visible only when users need it, which ensures viewers are not bombarded with information or distracted by the content. A self-help tab: A self-help tab enhances your app value. There will be a time when users may require guidance or support on using the app. Instead of e-mail, a self-help tab with instructions could enhance the user’s experience. Stop network battery drain: Apps that consume more power might not be considered as user-friendly. The only way to prevent battery drainage is to reduce and optimize operations that are particularly battery-intensive (network connection). For example, caching downloaded data instead of waking up the wi-fi radios to re-download the data. An app that works offline even better. Easy updates: Updates are an essential part of the application. It is necessary that it is simple to exercise. Avoid excessive advertising: A cluttered ad in apps is annoying for users and may instigate them to abandon the app. In-app advertisements may fail to bring revenue if not done in the right way. Over the period, following a good development practice and experience would help to create a user-friendly Android app. But till then, it is always better to keep a list of app development companies close, as there is a well-known phrase, “a stitch in time saves nine.” Some of the top Android App development companies are: Dot Com Infoway Blue Label Labs Utility Consagous Technologies Hidden Brains InfoTech Promatics Technologies Konstant Infosolutions TekRevol New Line Technologies
With over 2.7 billion smartphone users across the world, the rate of mobile app downloads has also increased. The current statistics show that each year, around 200 billion apps are downloaded, and it’s estimated to reach about 260 billion by 2022. But not all those apps downloaded has a good retention ratio. The study report says that the average mobile app retention rate was only 29% after 90 days during 2017-18.
