The fourth industrial revolution is paving the way for IoT and AI solutions with one goal in mind: to make everything easier to manage and to save more time in this fast-forward era. A wide range of solutions, from apps that increase productivity, facilitate communication or teach us how to adopt a healthy lifestyle, to ones which can control the climate or lighting system in our house. The need for automation has been propagated in businesses as well, and entrepreneurs became aware of the positive impact that a custom software solution can have across their business. Benefits include keeping up with changes in society of social behaviour and in the economy, being able to evolve alongside their customers, to solving and managing problems easier, faster without neglecting quality.
Why would you need a software product?
As a service provider, it is important to bring value and improvement to your customer’s business in addition to being a step ahead of the competition. The more a development company offers reliable solutions which people can relate to and identify with, the more successful the business outcomes will be for their clients. Bringing value to people’s lives is what a good software product should do. They say there are plenty of fish in the sea and the IT industry is like a big ocean divided into a many niches. Some specialize with web development, others deliver mobile development, and others are UI/UX houses. When you work with multiple companies, understanding requirements and communication can prove difficult to manage. Just think of receiving a product prototype that you really liked, but it turned out to look totally different before being launched. Frustrating, right?
What is a full stack?
Jack of all trades and master of all. Some people think that a full stack developer is like a jack of all trades and we couldn’t agree more. Usually, the connotation of the term has been negatively perceived due to the history behind it, but in today’s competitive world, a multi-skilled and multitasking person is exactly what is required. Full stack development means that the experience is there to juggle between all aspects of a project. This is true from front-end to back-end of web and mobile development applications required in a project.
What are the advantages?
Communication improvement. When working with multiple development agencies, it can be hard to keep a single point of contact. Also, the communication might not be as you expected. In full-stack it is all about the product and the parts which make it all work as a unitary body. The project manager will gather feedback from the in-house team and provide you with an overview at project level, not by departments.
Delivers high customer value. A full stack team concentrates on all features that need to be implemented. They consider one by one the features required by the customer and complete them from design to testing phase. Compared to component development, the feature team provides valuable input and comes up with changes and challenges that lead to a full customer feature delivery.
Cost-effective & on-time delivery. There is no doubt that hiring a talented full stack company saves a lot of money, because the remit is to handle all aspects of a project you will not have to liaise with multiple companies to complete development. By working with a full stack company, you have under one roof web & mobile development, UI/UX designers and QA testers to deliver a smooth development process.
You must be wondering how this relates to you? Everything! To wrap up, hiring a full stack team will absolutely be a win-win situation. They have the resources to master all the aspects of a software product, faster, at lower cost and at high quality.
