Cross-platform developments with TURBO
The TURBO methodology is 100% proven and its main success story is our own development product QuartzSales, and it is now available to our clients; so that they no longer think of software development as a long and tedious process but as something agile, truly functional.
As we told you in our article "TURBO: our unique methodology that improves costs, quality of results and development times"; At e·Saurio we decided to create our own software development methodology to obtain excellent results while guaranteeing our clients the best cost-benefit ratio and reduced development times. Through TURBO we are able to deliver quality products that have been carefully developed following the principles of study, ideation, prototyping and testing of Design Thinking.
One of our key components is architecture. Here, we focus on cross-platform developments (web, desktop, Android, iOS) taking into account scalability, flexibility, maintainability, auditing, performance, and security; and today we want to tell you more about this.
As the world becomes more digitized, the need for software and apps that work across multiple devices increases. In the world of software and app development, the term "cross-platform" generally refers to using the same code base to build apps for multiple platforms, such as iOS and Android.
Applications for different platforms typically need to be built using different frameworks and languages. However, through cross-platform development, one framework and one language can be used to build applications for different platforms. Now, what's really interesting here is the fact that you can use the same code base to create an app for both iOS and Android and this is what cross-platform development is all about.
Simply put, traditionally, software has been written specifically for a particular operating system (OS) and hardware platform, but this has changed with the advent of cross-platform development. For example, to create software that can run on the following devices, you must use specific languages:
- Apple devices: Objective-C or Swift.
- Android devices: Java.
This is because each operating system has its own API (Application Programming Interface). The APl is like a set of instructions that tells the software how to interact with the operating system. To create software that can run on multiple platforms, you need to use a language that can work with multiple APls.
Through TURBO, we use cross-platform development tools, which make it possible to write code that can run on multiple platforms with little or no modification. Thus, we allow developers to write code once and deploy it to multiple platforms, thus saving a lot of time for both developers and customers.
TURBO and its multiplatform developments allow:
- Reduce CRUD development times by 95%.
- Companies focus their efforts on critical business processes.
- Companies build their MVP in less time and at a lower cost.
- Automate development tasks that are repeated periodically to do them in less time and with higher quality.
Benefits of cross-platform development
There are many benefits of developing software that is not conditioned to a platform. The most obvious benefit is the ability for the software to be used on a variety of different platforms, giving users more choice and increasing the market for it. Other benefits are:
- Increased reach: By developing for different platforms, you can reach a larger audience with your app.
- Cost reduction: Developing a single cross-platform application can save you time and money because you don't have to rewrite code to create different versions of the app.
- Improved user experience: Users can have a consistent experience across all devices.
- Cross-platform development is ideal for companies that want to target as many users as possible with their software or app.
The development of cross-platform mobile applications is also an interesting option compared to web applications because, although these work on all operating systems and terminals with web browsers that support them, they do not adapt as well to the device's hardware. Another difference between web and cross-platform applications is that the former are not downloaded, but you access them through a url and the browser as if they were a web page, so that the data is stored in the cloud.
At e·Saurio we have more than 10 years in the software development industry and we are constantly evolving to offer our clients truly agile and robust solutions without neglecting the aesthetics that provide a unique user experience.
