  • When it’s a short-term project.
  • When you have a complete project description with defined goals, working procedures and the final results.
  • When you are working with a new contractor.
Fixed price model requires documentation prerequisites of which won't change exceptionally quick or won't rely upon the state of mind, in any capacity. Obviously, on the off chance that you've chosen to change a few prerequisites in Fix Price model you can negotiate this with the contractor, yet for this situation, project release can be postponed and Budget can be changed


This model is appropriate for projects where Fixed Price can't be given and for customers who will put resources into a continuous and gradual development of the quality product as they comprehend that making of another new product is an iterative procedure where the development has a large number of rounds. Here the fundamental essential factor is the team that is a transporter of the technologies, engineering, background, and knowledge in project development.

The benefits of Dedicated team model for a customer are as follows

  • For some small projects you work utilizing the Time and Material model, at that point, you get programming advancement specialists accessible for you a few hours in a month. Development can be planned for several months.
  • For long projects you need part-time or full-time developers for a year then the best solution is a dedicated team model as you get chosen by you specialists at the least available price.
In the two models, you have a privilege to have your own particular project manager, direct the approach, development practice, technical platform and even corporate culture and arrangements for long-term dedicated teams. A remote team will be the like an extension of your technical local team.

When to use a dedicated model?

  • Amid long-duration projects when the current plan means the attraction of long-term full-time resources and the usage of new technologies.
  • When the exact goals and needs are not clear, and you cannot predict the final result (i.e. in case of start-up).
  • When you priorly knows that requirements or task priorities will be changed

The possible losses of customers in fixed cost model are

  • Utilizing Fixed Price model a few groups won't do "appropriately" their undertakings, and they will act as indicated by the guideline: if just the Customer acknowledges it. They are not intrigued for their work to be performed well. After the entirety of their interests are constrained to make everything less demanding with a specific end goal to have a spending plan for the dangers, which may happen or they didn't consider.
  • Because of the main reason, the further item support will be considerably harder. There is no good reason for discussing the proficiency, unwavering quality and strength since it isn't the enthusiasm of such groups.
  • The tasks, in view of the settled value display frequently cause sick sentiments in help groups. No one composes remarks, structure, and style of code is passed "must have". Clearly, the principal bolster group's longing is to ask: "Who built up this item? It is difficult to help it!".
  • Once in a while, a few groups won't take care of the issue, however, they will endeavor to work "as indicated by determination". For what reason do they have to attempt to build up a superior item in the event that they don't make a benefit on it or even lessen their salary?
  • It's in light of a legitimate concern for a few groups to hide the potential issues of the item. In the event that the issues are not clear and there is an opportunity to finish the venture effectively, the Customer will never think about issues.
  • On the off chance that there are a few issues amid the task execution a considerable measure of time will be spent on a profound examination of correspondence, guarantees, and documentation. At the point when everything that time could be spent on building up the item. At times, even all discourses take additional time than framework update.
  • In this way, the expense of task possession increments.


  • Utilize short 1-3 weeks discharges amid the arrangement advancement. That will demonstrate the present advancement, help to change the item and invigorate your group to work adequately.
  • Pay as indicated by short discharges results (some particular Time and Material) – this encourages a client to perceive what he paid for. Source code and program are accessible for the client and accessible as indicated by his needs.
  • Utilize other great Agile programming advancement standards.
Let’s conclude, Any of the software development models is dependably a parity of money, quality, and timeline. The customer’s primary goal is to save money. For this situation, a few groups can offer just a poor quality product or delays in delivery. In any case, the client is a ruler and he ought to pick the model that suits him better. What's more, it will be extremely awesome if the client considers making a positive and inviting environment for developers taking a shot at his tasks and attempt to temper drawbacks of picked models and work out arrangements if issues emerge. In any case, nobody needs to shoot themselves in the foot and release a product with a terrible quality or create a product, which will be costly to help in the future.

In other words, Sharing economy is defined as a preference of the individual to rent or borrow the goods rather than to buy and own them. It is also known as collaborative consumption or peer-to-peer based sharing.                "Here is an example, you may need to travel somewhere comfortably and luxuriously where you are affordable to book a Premium CAR service in fact not going to buy a car for a single ride."

How do the Sharing Economy work?

                From our childhood, we have learned about sharing. It breeds trust, generosity and compassion among neighbours, cities and citizens. Even now in this internet era, sharing has landed an economic revolution.                Generally sharing economy is built on the concept of collaborative consumption. As per the traditional economic model, individuals need to buy goods. Let us consider the example, if anybody wants to drive to the store or airport, he or she needs to buy the car. All this come under personal consumption.               Only a few individuals will own the goods, but other people can pay to borrow them, it was nothing but sharing. For example, if you owned a car, that has value to both you and the person who wants to borrow  If your car sits idle and you waste its value. Why can’t you earn extra money by sharing the car?               Sharing economy started in 2009 with the launching of the apartment-sharing website(Airbnb). There is a lot of explosion of online companies that enables the strangers to pay each other for a short period of time for the goods or services like home, cars, office space and many more.  Sharing economy has attracted many people which increased the capital venture to billions of dollars.

In this, that trust is reinforced by face-to-face meetings. For example, let us consider the car rent website. In this, the keys will be handover to the renters and the renter should return the car in good condition. Of course, trust is the way to take you to so far. By this sharing companies, you can add an extra layer of protection to these sharing economy exchange by collecting and paying the money to the services Here are the top sharing economy, categorised by sector that plays a major role in the marketplace.

                The On-Demand Economy is defined as the economic activity generated by digital marketplaces that accomplish the consumer demand by immediate access to and provides a handy way to the provisioning of goods and services for those who are in the market for them. This is sometimes also known as “access economy”. Presently there are thousands of companies are making the use of On-demand economy.

Consumers have given top priority to convenience, speed and simplicity in order to meet their needs. The on-demand and freelance economics will go hand in hand.

How does the On-Demand Economy works?

              The On-Demand economy works by taking the services like food delivery, hairstyling and makeup applications and using technology in order to connect suppliers and consumers. This can be done through apps or websites by signing with their respective accounts to use the services. By entering into the app the customer can input their parameters and can send the request to connect with the service provider.              The service provider will be alerted by the app for the service request and heads out to perform the task for the customer. Once the task was completed, the payment will be done through the technology company. Using this there's no need to share the personal information between the parties as the application acts as the mediator and safeguards the personal information. In this, both parties are promoted to provide feedback and rating for one another, in order to improve the service quality and also to improve the system.

Evolution of On-Demand Economy

migration of apps from Android nougat to android oreo or above

Google Play’s targetSdkVersion – Android Developers Next Target API Level 26 Vision

As everyone is aware of the recent Google IO 2018 event held in may 2018, Google has recommended developers to update to latest Android APIs after August 1, 2018. All the new Android apps that are going to develop should target to API level 26 (Android Oreo) in order to get published.

But, Why should we update apps to level 26 version?

Well, the quick answer for this is boss’s order. As Google is our boss, the reason behind this is that Google focuses on security updates. Also, technology and people are willing to seek for the updated versions, even mobile phone manufacturers releasing Android OS updates to the devices. And if every aspect of the basic things getting updated to the latest versions, then Why not the Apps? Even though Google is working hard on backward compatibility and APIs support, it’s very important to target the new version APIs to fully utilize the latest features and backward compatibility support. This doesn’t mean for app support on all devices but to make sure the app is under more secure and safe.

What do we Update?

In simple words, all your new and existing Android apps instantly. Now let’s know what apps to get updated and when?

Till  August 2018

All the Android app owners who have the apps in live at play store are notified to update the existing apps to target API level 26 (Android Oreo). New apps that are in the development process and even the alpha and beta version apps are required to target API level 26.

From November

From November the developers need to develop the apps to target android Oreo and above. Also, the apps that are not updated will be removed from the play store.

2019 Onwards

Every year the TargetSDKversions will get its requirements advanced to the next level and all the existing apps, new apps need to get targeted to that corresponding API level or higher within the year. One important thing to remember is that the developers remain free to use the MinSDKversion of their choice. And there is no chance to the developers to develop the apps using the older API versions.

How to Update an App in the Google Play Developer Console?

The procedure involved is very easy. There are some APIs which have been updated or even removed from the API level, so if your apps are using those, then you need to get updated the code as accordingly. Here are some changes that take place in recent platform versions:
  • Android 5.0 no longer supports Implicit intents for bindServices()
  • Android 6.0 doesn’t  support runtime Permissions
  • Android 7.0 - User-added CAs not trusted by default for secure connections.
  • Android 8.0 - Apps can’t access user account without explicit user approval.
Apart from the popular Android Nougat, Marshmallow, and Oreo versions, the Android distribution chart shows Android Lollipop at 18.3%, KitKat at 7.8%, and Jelly Bean at 3.2%. Dated versions, including Android Ice Cream Sandwich and Gingerbread, are also a part of the distribution chart with 0.3% share each. android API levels Statistics So, from the above-detailed discussion, you can now get an idea about App updations to API level 26. So now you go ahead and update our awesome apps to provide Android phone users more fresh and amazing user experience. You can also watch this at youtube here that was conducted by Google I/O 2018.

Advanced Features of Google Maps

Top 10 Google Map API features for commercial business purposes

Keeping up with google can wear you out which sets to make one of its most popular apps - Google Maps - better with new features. Later Google I/O 2018, the mobile mapping app developers got great visionary of maps from the search giant. The vision of Google maps is all about to become more assistive and personal in nature. Google Maps API, this time has done most of the development changes on the core technology front. Below are some key new features that the great Google Maps came up to integrate into the mobile app for commercial business.

10 Google Map API features 

  • Street View with Panorama
  • Heat Maps
  • Style Maps
  • Ground  Overlay
  • Indoor Maps
  • Marker Clustering
  • Multiple Maps
  • Animation(Transition Speed)
  • Circles
  • Auto Lat-longs

Street View Panorama

The Street View panorama service provides all the users with a real-world experience of an address on the map. Google Street View provides panoramic views(360-degree) from designated roads throughout its coverage area.

Heat Maps

Heatmaps are new visualisation available in the utility library. HeatMaps represent geospatial data on a map by using different colours to represent areas with the different group of points. It shows the overall shape and group trends. It is also known as "intensity maps".

Style Maps

Using Style Maps you can add a map with custom styling to your app. With style options, you can customize the look of the standard Google map styles, changing the visual display of features like roads, parks, businesses and another point of Interest(POI). As well as changing the style of these features, you can hide features entirely, which means that you can emphasize particular components of the map or make the map style of your app. The styling works only on the normal map and does not affect the INDOOR MAPS.

Ground  Overlay

Ground Overlays are the images that are attached to latitude or longitude coordinates, so they run when you drag or zoom the map. This is also described as the images are fixed to map. Other than markers, ground overlays are oriented against the earth’s surface rather than the screen, so rotating, tilting or zooming the map will change the orientation of the images. Ground overlays are useful when you need to fix a particular image in one area on the map. If you want to add huge imagery that covers a large portion of the map, you should use Tile overlay. To add a ground overlay, create a ground lay options object that defines both images and a position. Even you can opt specific additional settings that will affect the positioning of the image on the map. Once you have defined the necessary options pass the object to the google map method to add the image to the map. The added ground overlay method returns a ground overlay object, then you should retain a reference to this object if wanted to modify it later.

Indoor Maps

MapsIndoors is built on Google Maps, which makes the transit from outdoor navigation to indoor navigation completely logically. All the known functionalities and design of Google Maps is brought inside and the user can get directions from any point outside the venue and all the way inside. MapsIndooor can be integrated into existing applications for the mobile and desktop or as a standalone service. With MapsIndoor CMS updating and customising your indoor maps has become easier.

Marker Clustering

When there is a lot of data to show, its bit hard to keep your app from becoming cluttered and messy. One way is to group nearby markers into a single marker cluster. When viewed zoomed in, individual markers are shown. However, as the user zooms out, marker group together into a single cluster marker. You can easily customize the appearance of the cluster maker and individual. It is ideal for visualising a large number of elements on a map whilst minimising cluster. You can see a concise summary of your data when zoomed out and as the markers separate when you zoom in, you don’t lose any details from your data.

Multiple Maps

Which contains more than one map. An added map is used to show an overview of the area of interest that is being studied on the main map. You can even use multiple maps to show different layers of information about a specific area side by side. The portion of an area based on the mouse or touch area of the major map. The number of maps that can be displayed is limited by your hardware. Screen size and graphics processing will manage how many maps can be efficiently used in your app. There is no limit imposed by the runtime. An overview map shows the extent of the main map at a smaller scale and provides a spatial context for the area of interest. When you sweep a map looking at detail, it is easy to mislay where you started or unable to determine how far away you are from features that are no longer in view. To create an overview map, do the following:
  • Ensure you have the main map component with a uniquely named ID.
  • Define an overview map component.
  • Handle the range changed event of the major map and update the overview map extent appropriately.
  • Optionally presents a graphic on the sketch map that represents the current area of the main map.

Animation(Transition Speed)

As Animations are ruling the world now, this effect came even into maps. The transition speed will impact the whole concept of animation effect in the map. Using this you can set the load time and also the time for zoom in and out for the map. This will help for the map to come into existence as per the time set by the user.


Circles will represent the area around us where we locate. The style can be varied as per the user need. The circle covers approximately about 20 to 30 km around us. The circle creation can be done as per the requirement. If you consider a building where you locate and for the tracker who wants to track you will see in a circle that covers the area around you. The design can be as doted, plain line or can be dashed line. We can opt this as per our requirement or convenience.

Auto Latitude and longitude

Nowadays tracking the person's exact location has become a bit difficult, so Google has come up with a new feature named “Auto Latitude and Longitude”. Auto latitude and longitude are used for tracking the person’s exact location, which will automatically take the latitude and longitude values of the area where the person locates. These features need to be integrated by the developers while developing the app.
Wrapping up:
