Why You Need to Use Cloud Based Application Development Services
Posted by seasonsalzcare on April 18th, 2017
There are many benefits to both traditional and cloud-based application development but the latter is proving to be a better preferred solution, as many developers agree. Here are key reasons why cloud based application development services are deemed superior over traditional methods:
•Workflows are migrating to the cloud. More businesses are now adopting digitally-driven workflows. In fact, according to Cisco’s GCI (Global Cloud Index) projection, cloud IP traffic is expected to grow at a CAGR (compound annual growth rate) of 27% over the period between 2013-2018. The cloud is a major enabler for emerging models of digital enterprise, which means that developing customized apps in the cloud effectively future-proofs your business’ work.
•Cloud reduces costs. It doesn’t matter whether you are using platform as a service or infrastructure as a service model. Either way, cloud can reduce app development costs. In IaaS situations, savings should come from infrastructure virtualization, which lessens the need for onsite hardware and equipment maintenance. Switching to cloud based development also offers the benefit of convenient remote management and monitoring, increasing scalability for growth (albeit not as seamless) and allowing more streamlined processes, all while reducing the cost of having to maintain your own equipment. More cost savings await PaaS users who will decide to switch to cloud-based solutions, as they eliminate the cost of many development elements like anti-virus software, hardware updates, and patches. Scalability is also more seamless, while giving users more flexibility when it comes to adding productivity-improving capabilities.
•Cloud streamlines development. Cloud-based development is also a lot faster as proven by recent surveys. According to Evans Data’s 2014 study, cloud-based custom app development reduces overall production time by 11.6% on average, which means faster implementation and adaptation.
•Cloud optimizes mobility. With users increasingly demanding more accessible applications, developing apps that work regardless of the device is also becoming increasingly important. In this case, cloud is most definitely the superior choice when it comes to designing, building, and maintaining apps that support the needs of mobile users.
•Cloud reduces risk. Cloud infrastructure has many unique aspects that help reduce the risk for users. Cloud environments, for instance has redundancies like multiple copies and locations, which, compared to traditional models of hosting, reduces the dangers of lost data. These redundancies also make it a lot more difficult for hackers and interlopers to get to sensitive data, this protecting users from usual data breaches that are all too common in traditional environments.
