Benefits of Using ASP .NET for Effective Web Application Development-Infographics

Microsoft ASP.NET Web Application Development is still preferable by various organizations. It could be any size such as Small, Medium and Large Enterprises, but their preferred technology for development is Microsoft.NET. It offers the variety of benefits that reduces development time and no need to worry about scalability and security.

As the Asp.NET Framework and MVC platform are evolved for decades, it has a rock solid foundation and building a new feature can be done in no time. If an enhancement should happen in production, It will be super easy to design, develop and deploy in Microsoft applications.

Microsoft has classified its components as View, Controller and Model files. If you wish to work on view files, it’s easy to change a view and upload the files in the live environment. It does not require a build and you don’t have to restart your IIS. Hot deployment is always good, as it does not impact any existing users.

There are major third party components available that simplify your UI Controls. Grid control, Pagination, Dashboard, Reports, Scroll view is offered by these plugins and it suits well with Microsoft framework.

Production deployment is really smart on Microsoft platform. Some Version control softwares are offering a single click deployment which eventually wraps up all your files from version control, make a build, move files to IIS Server, config files and Script files will be copied to appropriate folders and restart IIS if required. No need of manual Server admin as Its automated to take care of deployment. This is one of cool feature that removes the risk of missing a file in Production.

If your business has the potential opportunity to scale up, Microsoft.NET offers you the support and framework to develop.

Compelling reasons to outsource your Marketing strategy

In this ever-changing scenario of dynamic business landscape, organizations are strained to concentrate on multiple facets of an industry. One such vital ingredient, greatly contributing to the successful formula of every business is its marketing strategy. Marketing is considered to be an invisible force which turbo charges the presence of every organization. Though many companies ignore this viral propellant, it is undeniable that Marketing adds value in boosting the revenue generated.

8Kmiles-case-study-content-header

Based on a survey, it has been observed that

  • 87% of B2B marketers use social media to distribute valuable content
  • B2B companies with active blogs generate 67% more leads, on an average
  • Blogs deliver an average of 434% more indexed webpages

Striking the balance between technology and marketing

The best fit answer is-outsourcing marketing responsibilities.

Better focus on core competencies:

Outsourced marketing relieves the organization from a huge amount of workload. They can rest assured that an important factor of their organization is being taken care of very well. The organization can be better inclined towards building up their core competencies.

Specialists by your side:

When you outsource marketing, you hand over the complete charge to a third party, specialists in this field. They are equipped with leading edge technology which would definitely contribute towards scaling up productivity, revenue and efficiency.

Reduced overhead:

When a particular department is outsourced, it saves the cost involved in infrastructure and maintenance.

Extended talent pool at your service:

An outsourced marketing division supplies you with high-level talented employee pool who is extensively involved. This brings innovative ideas that play a significant role specifically in times of crisis.

Difference of inside and outside perspective:

There is no doubt that an in-house team naturally gels well with the organization and its culture. However a new perspective always help to analyze current trends, company’s performance and come up with marketing tactics to meet future demands. Thats why we think that an outsourced division look at the organization with an “outside perspective”. They are able to comprehensively analyze from the client’s perspective and feed the organization with critical inputs whenever required.

Born of necessity – Enterprise Mobile App

 

While apps have dominated  the consumer world in the last several years, they’ve actually failed to penetrate in Enterprise arena to the same extent. Though the development and use of a dynamic Information Technology platform resulted in Computerized Maintenance Management System, the real challenge, the enterprise faced in maintenance was in loading and accessing various type of data from wherever they were. An intense need arose from customers and employees has made the enterprise to think ‘mobile first’ and over a period of time, enterprise embraced and enabled the basics, like calendars, contacts and email for their customers. The time has changed and there is no need for anyone to tell the enterprise that mobility is critical for operational efficiency and to increase productivity, collaboration and profitability. Establishing a data-driven culture and enabling all decision-makers to take decisions based on the recent metrics will increase its productivity and continuous evolvement in it’s progress.The necessity to make “surgical decision” which eventually increases execution speed creates a concrete need in developing an Enterprise Mobility solution.
Once the Enterprise makes the decision that a custom app is required for its business, the most important decision is  how to build an app and there are two approaches; app can be built In-house or outsourced to a third party mobility expert.Building In-house app, Enterprise can have full control over their mobile app development, maintain a closer watch on progress, utilize the existing resources and make changes whenever since scope-creep is not a concern with internal resources. Though, In-house mobility have some potential advantages, there are a few complexities,
  • Resources should have mobile specific skill sets, such as UX design,development, implementation, analytics and performance testing.
  • Be aware of the quick changes in mobile industry, the fragmented devices and multiple platforms.
  • Developers, architects and user experience designers need to keep pace with the market changes.
  • In-house resources were more often pulled from other projects; hence the balancing act has to be maintained.
 According to a recent survey, 26% organizations developed their mobile applications In-house that contains Fortune 500 and established market leaders. This clearly shows that Small and Medium Enterprises depends fully on third party mobile development partner.
 Outsource Mobility :

The Next Big Thing for small businesses- Mobile Apps

Advertising was evolved tremendously in the last few decades. Is there any advertising media in our Granny’s days? No, Mouth to mouth advertising helped businesses and  then came the era of Pa’s having a cup of coffee and reading magazines and gathering information about latest businesses and its promotions. From there, technology started to grow faster and travelled quickly. As the internet usage increased vigorously in early 2000’s even the small businesses wanted to have their customized and responsive websites. Not too long ago, “having an online presence “meant maintaining a website; now what’s the trend? Mobile has become a disruptive force in almost all aspects of our life. It`s growing rapidly and it is causing dramatic changes in how consumers interact with brands and how advertisers market to these consumers.   

 So what does it really mean to businesses? A small business can achieve its mobile presence in two ways. Either a Website optimized for mobile devices or a standalone mobile app. We will discuss in detail about which investment option is the best for a small business.

 We should not view mobile websites and mobile apps as competing platforms, but rather complementary ones. Whether you should build a mobile app or a mobile website really depends on what type of business you have and what’s your customer preference. You also need to consider what percentage of your customers and prospects are accessing your content from a mobile device.

If your vision is to attract more customers then you can start with a mobile website. Mobile websites are built with responsive design so that it can be displayed in all formats including phones, tablets, PCs and laptops across all platforms. The main advantage of responsive website is that you build one and view in different platforms, while you would have to build a separate app for each mobile operating system and keep up to date with new versions (i.e. iOS, Android, Windows mobile, BlackBerry  etc.).  

 If the goal is to build customer loyalty and increase retention, Your business, can be a spa, salon, a restaurant or a clothing store, It must be connected and engaged with your customer to  promote your brand. Nowadays, Mobile apps play a vital role in brand promotion and help your customer to talk about your brand with their friends and family. Did you expect a spa would build an App? yes,  of course!  Spa chain from Middle East and USA has a loyal customer base and now they want to concentrate on improving and growing their customer engagement level, hence engaged a custom  mobile app development company to build an APP which allows users to view all their services, view offers and book appointments. App developers provides a web panel to let them edit their  

Contents such as About their services, contact locations, menu and categories and customer can make an appointment right from their phone.  Above all of this, users get notifications and day to day offers which make users engaged!

 As social trends changes, a business is no longer being social enough by just being in social media. A mobile app can take advantage of device features included in mobile phones such as push notifications, GPS, contacts, camera phone, and integration with other apps like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, card2contact– just to name a few.
