Mobile Apps – Selecting The Right Agency
THE NUMBER ONE CONSTANT IS CHANGE
Other alternatives, such as Progressive web apps, have come a long way in terms of their ability to mimic the functionality of native apps. In fact, some experts predict the fall of native mobile apps precisely because of advances in Progressive Web App performance and capabilities. Some alternative mobile app development technology options are significantly better suited to specific use cases than others – for example, if you need a very simple MVP you might consider a rapid prototyping tool like Meteor – and promise much lower development costs and shorter delivery times.
For other organisations, especially those with clearly defined requirements for internal use mobile apps, you might consider RMAD (rapid mobile app development), particularly well positioned to enable staff with no programming skills to rapidly assemble mobile app prototypes and continuously iterate. In summary, you should consider the various technology options dispassionately and make sure that the technology solution is closely matched to your organisations’ needs, irrespective of the skills and resources that your favourite agency currently has available.
AGENCY BIAS IS THE OTHER CONSTANT
Agencies can be expected to seek to maximise returns from their technology training investments. If you are building a mobile app, you should always undertake your own due diligence before engaging an agency – use your business needs and preferred technology as the starting point in your hunt for the best qualified team to develop your product.
