To business organizations across the globe, software development has become a huge asset. It helps organizations evolve, innovate, and grow. Especially because of the Covid-19 outbreak, businesses are realizing the relevance of technological advancements and IT experts.
We will discuss here the top trends in technologies that are used by software development companies like TatvaSoft that will dominate mobile and software trends this year and onwards.
Software Development Technology Trends This Year
1. The Internet of Things
The IoT is one of today’s biggest buzzwords. What’s so great about this technology is that it actually is a mature tech that has proven its efficiency time and time again. Developments in the IoT realm have resulted in impressive innovations and have helped organizations all over the world achieve greater productivity.
The hype about IoT is not showing any signs of slowing down, which makes IoT solutions some of the highest trending software development technologies today. IoT could be anything, from a gadget, person, vehicle, robot, computer, or just about anything. It enables gathering of data from all things. Moreover, the IoT technology is used extensively in the manufacture of autonomous cars, enabling vehicles to gather and send data to and from surrounding things for easier and better navigation.
2. Native App Development
A native app is a software app built for a certain platform in a particular language, be it an Android or an iOS application. Its counterpart is ‘hybrid apps’, which means that the app is created to work across several platforms. The native app development momentum is not surprising, particularly in the banking and financial industries, as well as other industries that demand for flawless performance.
Native application development provides a powerful performance and improved user experience. Since mobile use is more and more prevalent, boosting the user experience has become a top priority for business organizations, thus, initiative application development is expected to escalate.
3. Cloud Computing
Commonly, cloud computing is remotely running workloads over the internet in a commercial data center. Furthermore, it has become an ideal way of deploying enterprise apps as well as those with built systems already and are moving their architecture to the clouds. This year, cloud services, such as Amazon AWS, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform are expected to continue making money, other cloud services and technologies as well will make big bucks, including transferring and deploying data to the cloud.
There will be high demand for cloud experts. Because of the escalating demand for data security and fast access, every business, from startups to conservative organizations like government institutions, healthcare providers, and others turn to cloud vendors. The trend will only grow this year and onwards.
4. Progressive Web Applications
In terms of functionality, the difference between Progressive Web Apps and traditional websites is clear. Websites are easier to access. Web apps, however, could provide top performance and broader functionalities by embracing platform-centric hardware support.
PWAs are for every user, regardless of the location and the browser. So, whatever browser you use, Progressive Web Apps work. Furthermore, PWA’s do not depend on connectivity and one of the most prominent features is that they could work on networks of low quality and even offline.
5. React, Angular, NodeJS
React, Angular, and NodeJS remained the top three frameworks today. Furthermore, experts predict that the frameworks will remain on top this year and the year after. Angular frameworks enable seamless routing, which provides an edge over other front-end development frameworks.
ReactJS allows writing less code and implementing a virtual DOM, which boosts performance. It also helps build compelling user interfaces. NodeJS is considered as the go-to development framework for scalable and rapid networking applications. It’s lightweight, fast, and extensively used.
Technologies used in software development change more often than in any other industry. This is due to the big-scale adoption of software technologies in each and every industry vertical. The integration between business and technology paved the way for the rise in the global economy.
