dental website and mobile app development

How to attract new patients to your dental practice?

Dentists need to have effective strategies to attract new patients. With the growing competition in dental industries, it is becoming tougher for dentists to attract new dental patients. Internet marketing and online branding is on high as it is helping grow businesses from all domains. Marketing your dental services will require applying one or more of the following internet marketing tactics.

Websites for Dental Practices

Dental clinic and practices don’t need just website, they need a dental website for their dental clinic. This website should be informative for patients visiting the site, but at the same time, it should be able to work 24/7 for you and capture new leads/patients. Leads should be captured by engaging visitors of your site to book their online appointments, by showing some educational dental video or by asking some questions for their smile or dental health analysis. These are some of the examples on how to engage new patients and convert them into leads so that it will bring new business to you. The website also plays an important role in serving old patients. Collecting feedback or allowing them to interact is the key to retain the patients and provide a better experience. A dental website should have captivating designs to attract new patients along with persuasive dental marketing content. The website should have the professional content that educates and convinces patients that this is the right doctor to see for their dental health concerns. The website should be a converting website. How about getting 30 new patients per month rather than 10 new patients per month? Having a conversion goal of 3% is achievable. Having a professional and converting website is a good ROI.

Mobile apps for Dentists

Having a mobile app for your dental practice is providing a superior patient care experience. Today people use mobiles as the primary mode of communication, interaction, completing daily tasks and searching relevant things. Mobile app for your dental practice will provide all required data and information to your patients in easy to use format. Both new and existing patients can use your app and keep it on their phones. This way your dental practice will always be their first choice. Mobile app development for dentists will portray a professional and high-end image of your dental clinic.

Regular SEO for Dental Websites

Having a live website for your dental clinic is a good thing but showcasing it well on common platform so that more and more people will be able to explore the information regarding your dental practice. Good SEO practices help Google and other search engines to read and crawl your website well and improves the page ranking and visibility of the website in relevant search results. For this reason you cannot afford to ignore the SEO of the website. SEO includes different strategies like local, regular and international SEO. Following is an example of regular and local SEO and Adwords (paid advertising).

Social media marketing

Social media marketing is a hot cake in the field of media, marketing, and advertising. Businesses are utilising the social media platform to its best and leveraging the advantage of free advertising. Social media marketing for dental practice, or any business for that matter, is not just scheduling and posting stuff on social media channels. Content to be posted on social media need to be planned cautiously that should have proper keywords to cater and involve target audience. Unique content with attractive images, relevant links, and call to action always work better. Maintaining an active social media account is also an important part of social media marketing. Having an updated social media account for a dental clinic with correct profile information and relevant images and adding regular posts helps to get the maximum exposure. A single strategy for promoting dental clinic on all social media platforms may not work necessarily. You have to carefully understand how Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google+, LinkedIn and other social media platforms work and strategize the social media marketing plan carefully. Google authorship is going to be a big thing in near future and ranking on Google+ for local results is of huge importance.

Local SEO for your Dental Clinic

As the competition among the local businesses is growing continuously, local SEO has become of extreme importance to grab new customers for whom World Wide Web is the preferred place for finding or buying anything of any category. Google has always shown the favoritism towards newer, smaller and agile local businesses. As Google displays local results higher on mobile browsers. Because when someone searches for dental practice on their smartphone, the result will display dental clinic with the regular listing. Hence local SEO for dental clinics and dentists is of great importance.

live video streaming application development

How to build live video streaming application

Audiences are becoming clever these days and hence clever advertising has become an important part of the strategy you make to grow or expand your business. Live streaming mobile apps and on-demand video streaming apps are recently on rising and are one of the most popular categories of mobile apps. One of the popular mobile apps in this category is Periscope, which can be used on your Smartphone to stream live videos to your friends or anyone across the world. Businesses around the world are leveraging the power of live streaming and video streaming applications to attract more audiences and grow their businesses. Like any new social network, early adopters will have a massive strategic advantage. Here are the key points to consider for adopting live streaming mobile app or on-demand video streaming mobile app for your business.

How to choose, which kind of streaming application is suitable for your needs?

If you navigate through any of the popular mobile app stores, you will find various video streaming apps and basically, we can divide it into two groups: • Video streaming apps • Live broadcasting apps

Video streaming apps:

Video streaming apps are video playback. In these apps, users/admin can upload the videos anytime. These videos can be stored on the server for any amount of time. Users can use video streaming apps and watch these videos saved on the server anytime from anywhere. The videos will stay there until it is removed by the administrator.

Live video streaming apps:

Live video streaming apps differ from video streaming apps. In this article, we will discuss in detail regarding live streaming mobile apps. The user can stream a video live, which gets broadcasted to the other users or subscribers in real time. For such applications, the video is stored on the server but for a limited period of time. In some cases, it is available to view only live, it is not stored at all on the server.

Why are live streaming mobile apps becoming popular?

Live streaming for capturing attention

Digital content has given us access to things whenever we want them. But live streaming videos are more momentary as compared to other forms of digital or online content. When you are broadcasting live, many viewers will join your stream midway through, so the traditional story-centric approach to video will not be as effective. Instead, treat live streaming as a venue for spontaneous conversation. Be prepared to respond (verbally) to viewers’ comments in the moment. The live video offers an opportunity to create an instant buzz around whatever it is you are promoting.

Making compelling live content and interacting with audience

Live streaming provides more intimacy within the content. Audiences want to see more rather than told and thus they feel involved with your business or brand. If you can combine the voice with a compelling scene–be it a product launch or a visit to the factory where your first products are coming off the conveyer belt – you are going to win your audience.

How live video streaming technology works?

First of all, why people started preferring live streaming of videos. Because most of the videos are been made for interaction and to catch audiences, so that are made as high-quality videos. This makes viewers download big files, which are really big and takes a lot of time, very high-speed internet and still, the user has to struggle so much to watch a small video clip. So real-time video streaming has an advantage over streaming of stored videos. Live video streaming is a core video format for moving data with time-based dimension in a continuous stream. Once the files are delivered, it is being played in a particular order and the video gets streamed. Yes, it sounds very simple but the technical mechanics is more complicated.

Usage of mobile live streaming applications

Live streaming apps and live broadcasting apps are used widely in the marketing domain. Sometimes for one-to-one communication with customers, for video marketing, etc. The worldwide revenues from live streaming apps are expected to reach $9.5 billion in 2017. So it can be readily assumed that live streaming is the most powerful online video broadcasting system. Live streaming mobile applications involves a constant workflow, from capturing audio and video, encoding, transcoding, packaging, delivery, and playback.

Before going for live streaming mobile app development... consider these points

When you decide to go for building a live streaming mobile app, first of all, choose the platform wisely. The streaming application can be native or hybrid. If you have the target audience in mind then you can target and build the native live streaming mobile app using specific programming language for a specific platform. Developing Android streaming application or iPhone video streaming application can be chosen in case of native mobile application development. A hybrid live streaming mobile app is supported on multiple platforms like iOS, Android, Windows, etc. Main features of a live streaming mobile app consist of user registration, creating user’s personal profile, implementation of online video streaming, leaving comments to broadcasting, search, etc. These are basic features to have in a high-quality streaming application, which is good enough to start the first going. As soon as the first version of the app is developed, it thorough testing and bug fixing is crucial. After fixing all errors, the app is all ready to be uploaded to the app store of a chosen platform. Once the app is live its marketing and promotions are important. Rather the marketing and promotions can be started even before the app is live. Once the first version of the app is out, it does not mean that one can just relax in anticipation of getting good feedbacks. For having a successful streaming app, it is important to work towards developing new features and filling up gaps with respect to the situation in the market. Important to note: Always think about the scalability of the project, it is very important during the development process. So plan wisely how many users you want to serve at every stage of the project. Planning in time always helps in avoiding many problems in the project further.

Some of the important functions that can be included in version 1 of the live streaming app:

Live video streaming:

In the first version of the live streaming app, we can develop the functionality of streaming online without saving it to watch later. Here, the server will only convert the broadcast and transmit to the stream of viewers and video will not be stored on the server. In the next stage of development, the functionality of watching broadcasts later can be included. In this case, we will need more storage space on the server and using a cloud server for this can be a feasible option.

Commenting on the video:

In the first version, commenting on the video can be done. Broadcasters can use it for collecting feedbacks and audience can use it for asking questions and getting answers. The functionality of liking videos can also be added to this app.

Search option for users:

In the advanced features of the app, user and broadcasts search tool can be added. Different search filters like filter by the age, by interest, by broadcasts topic, by the language of broadcasts, by popularity, etc.

Geolocation:

Integrating geolocation can be considered for advanced versions of video streaming apps. With this functionality, users can find the broadcasts by their location. Thus, the user will be able to choose on the world map, from the marks of broadcasts that are being made at a particular moment.

How to bring your live video streaming app idea into reality?

The above-mentioned points and functionalities are for just creating the picture of how actually a live streaming app will look and function. If you have your own idea and looking forward to developing it into a video streaming app, contact us to bring it into reality. Even if you have just an initial idea, we can discuss and shape up the idea further into an innovative mobile app.

The fundamentals of Low Latency real time streaming

Anyone would like to watch any videos or live streaming without any kind of buffering or loading time. So lets have a look at as in why it takes time for loading and if not, Why does not it take time for loading. Have you ever heard of Latency and it should be low for video streaming? So lets get started with what latency is .. Latency is the time taken for the data to be transferred from one browser to another. Low latency clearly states that less time taken for the data transfer. The lesser time ideally should be few seconds or mille seconds. The data can be either videos or photos or it could be live streaming as well. Lesser the time, higher would be network speed and transformation of data and number of viewers for particular website or mobile application. For example, if you are watching a football match on your television as well as on a second screen app, if would be easy to identify the latency taken for the app to play the live streaming when compared to television and if the time taken is high for the second screen app, you will be dissatisfied watching it because the live scores will be updated on your second screen app with a minimal gap of 1 minute. This is also called as real time latency. For television, there will be a maximum latency of 6 seconds and your second screen app should match that level of latency to deliver fantastic experience that’s in sync with the TV.   Real time streaming:  In the television interviews, where reporter is conversing from the  remote location to the reporter in head office, the latency here results in long pauses which will result in disappointing conversation and will reduce the number of viewers of that specific channel.  That's because the latency goes both ways—maybe it takes a full second for the reporter's question to make it to the interview, but then it takes another second for the interviewee's reply to get back to the reporter. That conversation can quickly turn painful. In this scenario, low latency can make this conversation smoother. Betting and bidding—Auctions and sports-track betting are usually exciting because of their fast pace. And that speed calls for real-time streaming. The low-latency streaming eliminates pall the problematic delays and increases no of viewers and there by promoting the mobile app or website. As we all know, online auctions are big business, and any delay can result in bad bidding. Fractions of a seconds may lead to major difference in betting and bidding. Video gaming—Timing is very critical for gamers. If the latency is not low, it might results in uninstalling the gaming apps on mobiles. These examples, clearly state the latency plays a major role and it should be low for data transfer related websites or mobile applications. How Does Low-Latency Streaming Work? Now that you know what low latency is and when it's important, you're probably wondering, how can you deliver low latency streaming? For example, if you watch videos in youtube, the videos in the youtube will be played without buffering if the connectivity is good. The reason behind is the ultra low latency. We at Krify work on the top servers which reduce the latency for all data transfer or video playing or for the live streaming. There are couple of apps designed by us for live streaming and they are running successfully with low latency. Please visit our website and write back to us for more details and we are happy to share the knowledge and help you in designing low latency mobile applications for android and IOS.

DevOps 2018 - Key Aspects & Notes

Software Development and Operations Automation – DevOps Tools & Key Notes 2018 ,

In Information Technology (IT) the most recent and emerging term DEV-OPS is a practice to emphasize the teamwork and communication among software developers and IT professionals. DEV-OPS focuses on supplying software product quicker by lowering the failure rate of builds (releases). DevOps is, the “integration of development team, Information Technology operations, security, and QA (quality assurance) under one automated umbrella”. In short, is a cross-business effort to turn software developments on its head with a shorter cycle time, lower testing time, more automation – and better (and more secure) code. Why do we call Dev-Ops? For strongly sponsoring the software development with automation & monitoring through at all phases, from integration, testing, releasing to the deployment and infrastructure managing. Software Development – Software Operations, in short Dev-Ops came into the picture. What is the Aim of Dev-Ops? Simply, to provide a smart and short development life cycle with increased frequency in development and more dependable releases for close alignment with the business objectives. What are few Key Aspects in DevOps?

Infrastructure as code: (IAC)

Infrastructure as Code is nothing but programming scripts, which used to automate vital IT processes. However, Scripts - principally used to automate a few series of static step’s which must be recurring numerous times across multiple servers. I

Other than scripts, Infrastructure as code uses descriptive or higher-level language to code more flexible & adaptive provisions and deployment procedures.

For Instance, IAC is coded with Ansible an IT management & configuration tool, could install MySQL server, verify that MySQL is running correctly, make a user account and password, set-up a new DB (database) and remove unnecessary databases – all through code.

Amsible is the simplest way to automate apps and IT infrastructure. Application Deployment Configuration Management Continuous Delivery

Continuous deployment

Continuous Delivery (CD) is a software development methodology in which CI - continuous integration, automated testing, & automated deployment competences that let high-quality software to be developed & deployed rapidly, consistently and frequently with minimal manual overhead.

With the Continuous Deployment, any of the efficient working version of the application is robotically pushed to a production line. Continuous Deployment commands, Continuous Delivery, but the opposite is not required.

Automation:

DevOps automation is not something that set-up once and forgotten. It is like a security with respect to the performance, which is somewhat you need to concentrate on and monitor continuously to improve as long as DevOps pipeline is active.

Initial step to the DevOps automation is Agile. “Agile infrastructure” or “Agile operations”; it leaped from applying Agile and Lean approaches to operations work.

Automation comes in a picture, when you know, what you need to do to resolve bottlenecks. If we can continuously prioritize & re-evaluate different backlogs. We can able to introduce the automation effectively and gradually.

  • Evaluate your needs
  • Identify your bottlenecks
  • Consider the return on investment
  • Continuously assess and reevaluate

Automation is the lifeline, by integration of technologies, we can truly bring the tools composed as used by dissimilar stakeholders. With a exclusive integration platform, DevOps Cycle facilitates integration of tools through various phases of the DevOps cycle alike BMC Remedy used by the operations team, build tools like Jenkins, Rally used by the engineering team, Hudson used by the development team and also few of testing tool’s used by the Quality Analyst team.

Once, we can integrate / we will have a super power to describe a peer-to-peer automated DevOps process that extent across numerous disparate tools. This adds to better sync between the team’s & ultimately faster and more exact deployment and releases.

Continuous Monitoring:

In DevOps life cycle at any stage of Managing, Continuous Monitor of applications in a production environment’s are classically implement with respect to the AMP (application performance management) solutions that which is intelligent enough to monitor, analyze and manage the cloud, on-premise & hybrid applications and IT infrastructures.

This APM solutions enables you to monitor your user’ experiences and increase stability of your application infrastructures. It helps in identify the root cause of issues quickly to proactively - prevent outages to keep the users satisfied.

As we know, applications are extra business critical than ever. They must be always up front, fast and keep on improving. By Implementation of DevOps approaches allow us to reduce the cycle times to the hours instead of months.

But we have to keep certifying a great user experience!! Continuous Monitoring of the entire life cycle in DevOps will be ensures the development and operations teams collaborate to optimize, the user experience in every step of the way.

Security:

With DevOps, Aim is to carry the operations team into development teams so that it was not just something which has to be additional on to the end of project. Sending release “over the fence” to Ops is now no longer something any sensible company does.

Same applies with DevSecOps – DevOps ensure that security is not a thought for any remote department for having a look in, but rather it’s an integration of all stages for the development project and also beyond it.

Modern DevOps has much closer relationship among the development people and people who operate through the infrastructure systems where any application relies on. Which lets improved understanding of what the application is, actually does and where the weaknesses is lies among, for making it easier to a secure. And with explosion of the security bugs like Shell-shock and Heart-bleed, a good understanding of development ultimately allows operations personnel to make more informed decisions.

“Google & Facebook are perhaps the primary pioneers of DevOps, Using DevOps to revolutionize with their existing and new cloud product’s, and same is true with cloud platform AWS by Amazon.”

Difference between Software Development company and Digital Agency?

A Software company understand your requirement and they convert your idea to reality by designing, developing and deploying the application. They will use their expertise and development skills to build the application and won’t think too deep in understanding the brand or marketing strategies. Once the application is live then they will have handed   over the project to the client and further they will involve in any improvements and maintenance support. During their interactions they will ask questions like
  • What functionality do you need?
  • What style of designs do you need?
  • Will you provide us all the content?
  • In which platforms do you want the application?
  • What technology stack do you prefer?
A Digital agency manages all aspects of an application. They embrace strategic thinking, technical innovation and brand building to deliver client’s objectives.

What is GCM & FCM Cloud based Messaging?

The benefits of Cloud-based messaging solution is that messages can be accessed “anywhere, anytime and through any device”. There are two types of cloud messaging services
  1. GCM - Google Cloud Messaging
  2. FCM - Firebase Cloud Messaging
GCM Google Cloud Messaging (GCM) is a free service that facilitates messaging between mobile apps and server applications. It enables developers to send messages between servers and client apps. GCM is a service that handles the sending, routing, and queueing of messages between server applications and mobile client apps. A client app is a GCM-enabled app that runs on a device. The app server  is the GCM-enabled server that your client app communicates with through GCM.   FCM FCM (Firebase Cloud Messaging) is the new unified app platform introduced by Google to replace GCM (Google Cloud Messaging). Firebase Cloud Messaging (FCM) is a cross-platform service that handles the sending, routing, and queueing of messages between server applications and mobile client apps. FCM is the successor to Google Cloud Messaging (GCM), and it is built on Google Play Services. Using message targeting, FCM is able to deliver messages to applications in three ways: to single devices, to groups of devices, or to devices subscribed to topics. Developers have the option to create messages in the Notification composer, which can send targeted messages to specific segments of users. These messages are fully integrated with Firebase Analytics, which tracks user engagement and conversion. Why we need to migrate from GCM to FCM FCM (Firebase Cloud Messaging) is an improved version of the Google Cloud Messaging. It inherits GCM’s core infrastructure, with new SDKs to make Cloud Messaging development easier. Following are the benefits of  FCM SDK:
  • Simpler client development
  • An out-of-the-box notification solution. One can use Firebase Notifications, a serverless notifications solution with a web console that lets anyone send notifications to target specific audiences based on Firebase Analytics insights.
Is GCM deprecated As per Google team update, they are still continue to support the current version of GCM Android and iOS SDKs because a lot of projects use GCM technology for real time communication. It is recommended to use FCM SDK moving forward. We are global technology and IT Services company with 400+ applications designed, developed and deployed successfully. We have elite team to conceptualize, design, develop, test and deploy the applications as per your demand. We will connect you to one of our business analyst team , they will understand your requirement and help you to provide the best of mobile app development services that suit your need.

Why Technical Maintenance is Crucial for Success of Application?

Maintenance of Mobile or Web application is very important just like maintaining our vehicles, electronic devices etc. Once the application is launched, it is very crucial to monitor the performance and make necessary alterations and up gradations at a regular interval. Continuous application maintenance will result in improved application quality and results in greater productivity. Hence it is equivalently vital to maintaining the applications that you have developed for a seamless and trouble-free operation. The reason for the failure of any mobile applications is that businesses tend to ignore the importance of mobile app maintenance because for any company creating a perfect and flawless application and expecting it to function the same over some period of time, is something not possible. Importance of On-going Maintenance:       User Interface The User Interface of the application should always be updated and advanced to attract customers and make them reuse the application for its user-friendliness and usefulness. Performance Monitoring Development is not the end of a project, for an application, the real test begins when it is live. As the number of users increases, there may be a use case which requires fixes. Performance monitoring is a critical part of app maintenance as it will prevent the app from crashes or deterioration in performance. Platform Updates         As technology keeps on changing and upgrading, so in order to ensure your application remains consistent with the new version of the mobile operating system, app maintenance is very important. API Monitoring Most of the time an app depends on an API for its functioning. It’s important to monitor the app and the server management team to keep track of the issues as they arise. API monitoring is also important to prevent potential crashes which can lead users to abandon your app. It is very clear that Mobile & Web maintenance is extremely important for the success of the application. To ensure that users don't uninstall the app, the users also need to keep engaged and the application should be free of technical problems or any other issues. Such issues are sorted out during maintenance. We have associated with our various clients and helped them efficiently in maintaining their applications successfully. Our maintenance service includes
  • Analysis of existing mobile application
  • OS and device update reviews

Remote Working from Home Software

How to effectively manage your Remote Workforce

Today, Most of the organizations around the world prefer to work in a closed office environment which is called centralized workforce model. Employees live close to their office or they drive long distances on a daily basis. Even though it involves a reasonable cost to maintain office environment, there are significant advantages by which companies/corporates prefer this method. In a closed office environment with a Centralized workforce, all employees sit with in a building and many cases next to each other.  So, colleagues will have a chance to socialize themselves and understand each other.  If we think in detail about it, an average working employee spends 45 to 50 hours a week with their co-workers which in many instances is more than the time they spend with their family members. They develop their social lives purely around the relationships they make at work.   Secondly, the knowledge and information shared more effectively in a closed work environment. A typical coffee break may involve colleagues discussing an important challenge faced by the mobile app designer for a mission critical and user-friendly mobile app that they are designing. The other advantages are fast execution, reduced conflicts, control, and accountability. Remote work force or Virtual work force became increasingly common. Let it be a startup world or a top class Multi-national company.  Does working from home really work? In a recent survey, it is revealed that Home based workers were 13% more productive, happier in their jobs and less likely to leave than their office-bound colleagues. Virtual working saves money to the employer, is better for the environment and gives staff the flexibility they crave, so it’s no wonder that more and more organizations are encouraging it. How does the employer or the manager know if their remote employee is actually working and not wasting time?    In order to answer this, we may need to to know the challenges of remote work that threaten to outweigh the benefits. (i) Lack of daily face to face communication (ii) Lack of Social Interaction (iii) Lack of work trust (iv) Cultural clashes (v) Loss of team spirit How can you Effectively Manage your Remote Workers: Firstly,  you can organize a regular audio or video calls (preferred) on a consistent basis either with the immediate manager of the remote worker or you yourself.  It can be a weekly review meeting or a monthly meeting - reviewing the work progress and setting the goals.  This is not only an opportunity to get to know the work but also to talk about the well-being which improves the connected spirit. Remote Working Management Software Secondly,   you can use a remote work management software such as "Krify Remote Work Manager" that allows an employer to collect the "check-in" and "check-out" times and screen shots of the computer during the sessions.  Tools such as it will help to build trust and respect for the remote employee's integrity.   Incase if you would like to know more about the Software, please contact us for a demo.

A Quick Introduction and Benefits of DEVOPS !

Origin of Devops : 
“DevOps” as a term was first coined in 2009 by Patrick Debois from Belgium, who became one of its chief proponents.
What is Devops?
DevOps is a combination of software development and operations—and as its name suggests, it's a melding of these two disciplines in order to emphasize communication, collaboration, and cohesion between the traditionally separate developer and IT operations teams.

DevOps methodology identifies the interdependence between two groups. By integrating these functions as one team or department, DevOps helps an organization deploy software more frequently, while maintaining service stability and gaining the speed necessary for more innovation

 Principles of Devops
The principles of DevOps are Iterative, Incremental, Collaboration, Quantification, automation, integration and Holistic . Lets discuss below few of the key features of DevOps. 1. Collaboration Collaboration between the two departments stands at the very base of the DevOps operations. While it does require cross-functional training and discipline as well as may result in the changing of predefined roles, such collaboration ultimately leads to higher efficiency and effectiveness. 2. Quantification It is necessary to have a scale on whose basis a practice and its effects can be judged. By quantifying the number of deployments, failures, time taken for each deployment, up time etc before employing DevOps, you can successfully judge the impact and improvement of DevOps on your work culture and environment. 3. Automation While the developing department generally has a high level of automation, we don’t observe the same with the operations side. By integrating the same level of automation in both departments, we achieve a level of consistency and efficiency across the board that would not otherwise be possible. 4. Holistic Holistic system means thinking about the entire system and the ecosystem around it.
DevOps Practices
A few DevOps practices include:
  • Self-service configuration
  • Automated provisioning
  • Continuous build
  • Continuous integration
  • Continuous delivery
  • Automated release management
  • Incremental testing
Benefits of Devops
Companies that incorporate DevOps practices can deliver with maximum speed, functionality, and innovation. Below are some of the benefist  Business Benefits
  • Increase Customer Satisfaction & Retention
  • Increase Business Efficiency
  • Improve Response Time
  • Increase Ops alignment to business goals
  • Reduced Cost over time
  • Improve Business Agility
  • Better Employee Productivity & Satisfaction
Operational Benefits
  • Faster delivery of new features
  • Better release control & versioning
  • More frequent software releases
  • Better development velocity
  • Reduce Time for Action
  • Better collaboration amongst project teams
  • Reduced IT Costs
  • Better Productivity
  • Automated server configuration reduces time window for resource management from days to minutes.
Tools used in Devops
In the world of devops there involves different tools in release like (Docker, Jenkins), Configuration management (puppet, chef, ansible), virtualization, monitoring, and containerization (openstack, AWS) and many more. If you aren’t adopting DevOps practices in your own technology projects, then you may be wasting time and increasing the risk of delay on your technology projects and costly technical debt.

Choosing right development partner: individual contractor vs Development Company

When you realize that you have a great product idea, then you must make a decisive choice: Who will you trust to bring your idea to life? Let’s start with a very basic question: Do I need to find the right person or do I need to find the right company? You have a lot of options. Matching your business needs to the right development choice will get you the right work. Hiring right developers is a critical decision for any project, regardless of app’s type and size. One of the most notable differences between a mobile development firm and an individual developer is the fact that the development companies has a team, whereas the individual developer does not. Because of this, development companies have a broad range of resources and expertise at their disposal that they can utilize to produce not only an effective end product for you and your business, but also to offer continued management services. The most common reasons in hiring an individual developer for development is to try to save money. But the fact is that, hiring an individual developer to your software development isn’t very cost-effective at all in the long run. Infact, individual developers cannot be less-expensive at all. It is hard to keep expenses less without shared resources. Maybe, your idea will get all the attention of a developer but how the experience, skills and creativity of an individual can be compared with a group? Individual developers have limited resources and have not worked on several projects of same kind and thus expertise is limited too. For example consider any purchases, when you buy or shop brands you pay more but what you are paying is not only for the product, you are paying for the guarantee and quality as well. The same applies for a development company. You are going to pay a little more, but the output you are going to get is a polished world class application code that has customer service standards and best practices. A software development company is a team of professionals that usually consists of passionate designers, developers, project managers, Quality Assurance team and offers professional full-cycle services from consulting to product maintenance.   When choosing a company, the whole project goes through a systematic software development process. Each step involves professionals of their fields who have worked for several years in the industry and developed on tens of same kind of projects. Software development companies are constantly evolving and improving; they are aware of current software trends and new programming languages and can provide up-to-date solutions. If you choose to rely on an individual developer for your development needs, you will likely have to hire multiple individuals in order to fill each separate role, which can be risky and you need to do the management of all the resources. A well-tuned development workflow will never fail to meet deadline. From the above points we discussed above it is quite clear that, by hiring a development company  you will get a professional application that will Churn revenue with a proper marketing plan. It is always a good to hire a company with team of professionals working for you, rather than hiring a single developer. It is recommended to hire an individual for certain tasks but for complete project implementation and if you are not ready to compromise on quality, hiring a development company is always the best and right option. Being a complete IT service providing company, we at Krify assure that your requirements are properly converted to polished application with our highly proficient developers that matches your total satisfaction. Contact us  if you are looking for any app development, support or maintenance services.

Business requirement document for software, mobile app, website

Why writing a Business Requirement Document (BRD) is important and how it helps in application success?

If you are planning of building an application either Website or mobile app, having a clear requirements is the key to success.Whether you are a startup with an original idea, or a company, it is essential that each and every project starts with a BRD. A clear BRD makes the development process much smoother which will act as a foundation of the product, outlining the business logic, listing the technical specifications, and finally to ensure your application reaches its full potential once it is live. The two important Variants of BRD are
  1. Requirement Specification document (RDS)
  2. Functional Specification Document (FSD)
Both sets of requirements contribute to a common Project. Requirement specification document deal with mainly business goals and stakeholder expectations whereas functional requirements are very detailed and provide information on how business needs and goals will be delivered through a specific project. Requirement specification document contain following elements:
  • Vision of the project
  • Objectives of the project
  • Context or background of the project
  • Scope of the project
  • Stakeholder identification
  • Detailed Business Requirements
  • Scope of the solution
  • Project constraints: Time Frame, Cost of the Project, and Available resources
Functional Specification document contains following details:
  • Purpose of the project
  • Scope of the project
  • Detailed functional requirements
  • Non-functional requirements
  • Assumptions/constraints
  • Representation of functional requirements using Information Architecture
A Simple example that explains the difference between Requirement specification and Functional Specification is Subject: Development of a classified’s Website Business Requirements “Build a responsive online classifieds listing website where users can search and browse classifieds by Categories, City and State and can also view and rate other user’s profiles, and post classifieds for free as well as Job classifieds.” Functional Requirements The system shall allow the user to post a classified by providing title, price, location, description, state/area, uploading a picture, and selecting a category. The system shall allow the rating of users on a scale of 1-5. The system shall allow the users to Search Classifieds by Keyword, Category, State, City and Church. From the above an effective & perfect Business requirement document is a combination of  both business and functional requirements. The following questions should be considered while preparing Business requirement document
  • What is the purpose of the application or product and what are you trying to accomplish?
  • How will it streamline or improve the current process or facilitate a new process?
  • Who are the target audience?
  • What is the target location?
  • What are the target platforms?

Launch of Android Oreo-Smarter, Faster and Powerful Android OS!

After more than a year of development and months of testing by developers, finally Google has officially launched Android 8.0 Oreo to the world. Google says, “Android Oreo is the smarter, faster, more powerful cookie”. New Android 8.0 (Android O) OS is going to help developers to develop innovative Android apps faster and users are going to enjoy the power of new Android O OS. Android 8.0 has brought lot of exciting features such as integrated instant apps, autofill, faster boot-time, picture-in-picture, and more. Google announced this at I/O 2017 and released its developer preview. The new version has been named as Android Oreo. The beta version of this OS was made available to developers sometime back to explore its capabilities and build innovative apps that best utilize its power playing features.

What's in Android Oreo?

In Android 8.0 ‘Oreo’, they focused on creating fluid experiences that make Android even more powerful and easy to use, such as:
Faster Android
The all new Android Oreo is being claimed to be faster than Android Nougat, twice the time faster than Android Nougat. As this speed has reduced the boot time considerably i.e. from 35 to 13 seconds on the Pixel, it has resulted in faster loading and running of apps like Google sheet apps. The faster Android has been created in a way to process complex tasks.
Picture-in-picture
The picture-in-picture feature works with only one screen, i.e., for opening the third app, you need to go to the home screen. It cannot adjust three apps on one screen. Although with the settings option you will be able to adjust the size of the shrunk screen.  
Notification dots
The current notification system on Android gives an alert in a pull-down notification shade at the top of the screen. However, with Android Oreo, you’ll see a dot appear next to an app icon that will tell you that you have an unread item. You can hold the app icon to expand the message and take a glance at the content inside. Additionally the colour of the dot matches the app icon making it evident. Notifications at the top notification shade are synced with the dot, so tapping one will clear the other. A long-press on an app with a notification dot will open a menu of the missed notifications.
Autofill framework
While using the chrome browser on the phone, you have to type in your name and password over and over again. Android Oreo’s autofill feature is not only for Google accounts but it will also remember your Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn and simply all your passwords. It simplifies how users set up a new device and synchronize their passwords. Apps using form data can optimize their apps for Autofill, and password manager apps can use the new APIs to make their services available to users in their favourite apps.
Security Steps Up
Now-a-days users are concerned about the safety and privacy of their data. They do not trust malicious apps that leak confidential information or share it with third party apps. Google Play Protect now helps users in maintaining complete safety of their phone data by securing it from unknown apps.
The Battery Boost
Android Oreo will put some restrictions on background apps. It will retain certain apps from running down your battery. You can now expect improved battery life. Google has added “wise limits” to create automated caps for what apps can do in the background. These limits will reduce the extreme use of background services. Therefore, the apps won’t use much battery when you’re not using them.
Adding More to Emojis
Google promises more than 60 new emojis in Android Oreo.
Android Instant Apps
Android Instant Apps will let you use an app without downloading it to your device. This exciting feature is available in Android Oreo. Google provides a cloud-based version of the app, so you don’t have to download it from the play store now
Smarter copy and paste
Android O has brought the feature ‘Smart Text Selection’, which is going to make copying and pasting text on a phone easier. What it needs to do more is that it should make the whole experience a little more user-friendly with Android O. The idea behind smart text selection is if you double-tap on the screen, Android O knows what you want to select - whether it be a phone number, a name, or an address. In other words, no more struggling is required to get the text selection just right before you copy it, run a search from it, or anything else. More interestingly, Android O has stepped one more step ahead. If Android O recognises that you've highlighted or selected a street address, the OS recognises it and displays a quick shortcut for you on Google Maps, along with the usual options to copy, format, paste, etc. Our Android developers are all ready to update existing apps to Android O. If you have an idea for the next Android app then Share you bright vision with us. We assure you that we will transform your unbaked thoughts into a full pledged mobile app Irrespective of the type of app and its target market (either enterprise or consumer market), we have an expert team of Android developers to build Android apps compatible for all latest Android versions at a competitive price.
