Mobile Apps & IoT
“The computer is the most remarkable tool that we’ve ever come up with. It’s the equivalent of a bicycle for our minds.”
Everything in today’s world is connected, regardless of time or location. But mobile is about more than just apps, it’s about interfaces across many devices working together to create a seamless experience. Creating this integrated experience is what unlocks the true potential of mobile and the Internet of Things to be transformative for your business.
Our Approach to Mobile and Connected Devices
DESIGN FOR THE JOB AT HAND
Custom mobile apps present a great opportunity to focus in on a precise job at hand. Rather than interfaces that are crammed with every possible function, a smartphone or tablet app can give the user exactly what they need at exactly the correct moment. Using design research techniques to understand the context a mobile will be used in helps create.
IT’S MORE THAN JUST APPS
Mobile apps are just the start for mobility. Connected devices, wearables, sensors – all parts of the Internet of Things ecosystem. Understanding how to make these technologies work can help you create game changing connected experiences for your customers and employees. And with the data you gather from IoT devices you can glean new insights that will drive your business forward.
SCALE IS CRITICAL
Today’s enterprise-scale systems are mission critical to business. And for mobile apps and IoT scale takes on a whole new meaning. Creating robust back-end systems that can handle the big data generated by IoT and mobile apps is essential to success.
NATIVE AND CROSS-PLATFORM
Native mobile apps for iOS (Swift / Objective-C) and Android (Java) have now been joined by mature cross-platform technologies like React Native. Lightyears beyond the “hybrid-apps” of a few years ago, these cross-platform systems generate real native code but allow code sharing between platforms. This opens up a whole new world of rapid development and reduction in cost and complexity.
