Web Application Development
With our award-winning custom web application development services, our team builds responsive platforms that are well-integrated, easy-to-use, and effortlessly process large quantities of data.
What is a Web Application?
A web application is a computer program that requires access to the internet to run its software. Web applications connect to cloud servers (data centers available over the internet), which allow them to access and process content stored on remote, physical servers. As this type of software application allows for multiple users to access online data in real-time, web applications are a top choice for those looking to collaboratively manage files online.

What are the benefits of Web Applications?
Web applications differ from desktop apps as they run on web browsers and do not require the use of a specific type of computer (ie. PC or Mac), operating system, or browser. As web applications don’t require a specific computer or operating system, web apps allow for greater adoption than desktop applications. Furthermore, as web applications aren’t restricted to app stores, they face fewer limitations and, also, allow for streamlined updates.
Mobile web app development can be employed to build a web application that operates as if it were a native mobile app. If you’re in the tech industry, you’ve likely heard the term PWA (Progressive Web Application). PWAs are web applications that are able to be saved to individual mobile devices and can interact with the hardware of a device. When speaking in terms of custom application development, PWAs are a means to get the most bang for your buck as they cost less than mobile applications while still providing a similar user experience. PWAs also use less data than mobile apps and are quick to load.
What defines successful Web App Development?
While there are a number of factors that indicate successful web application development, there are a couple determinants that stand above all others:
- Planning An Architect must begin by choosing the programming languages, web development frameworks, and web services that suit the functions and features of their unique product. This thoughtful planning will inevitably mitigate issues that may arise from scaling and will minimize project costs. When choosing systems such as a web development framework, Architects must thoughtfully assess all aspects of relevant system competitors. For instance, choosing a framework that includes built-in automation features (such as testing automation and automated deployments) will streamline the development process from the beginning by forgoing the need for most manual web tests.
- Process Advanced web application development requires strict adherence to thoughtful and proven processes. Although our team utilizes an agile approach to software development, there are alternatives (such as waterfall) which when followed properly can produce reliable results as well. What matters most is that all members of a web design and development team consistently operate within the limits of their chosen approach.
- Performance The rate at which a web application returns results is the most important determinant of successfully implemented code. Load and stress testing must be employed to determine system capacity and to accurately gauge the reliability of the code under a number of interactions within a set duration. As fast response rates will ultimately open the door for user retention, anything less than an immediate event response will lead to code refactoring and inflated product budgets. To ensure intended performance, the project must be well planned from the start and chosen processes must be followed each step of the way. Speed does not determine whether a product will be successful or not, but it does pave the way for happy users.
