Mobile test automation is challenging but even more challenging is the huge availability of mobile test automation tools in the market. That makes it hard to choose what suits best for what.  Free or paid, for a native app or web app?

Font size and readability are other challenging factors of usability. When testing mobile applications it’s important to pay attention to the size of click areas and to ensure that all content is readable.

Top 3 Things to Consider When You Hire a Kentico Development Company

THURSDAY, JULY 26, 2018

Kentico is an Enterprise CMS that is not everyone’s cup of tea. There are more than 1100 Kentico solution partners across the world, making it difficult to assign their projects to someone sitting in a different part of the world.
 
Latest developments in Content Management Services sector has shown the number of companies investing in digital marketing has substantially increased. And, with the release of Kentico 8 and the 8.1 upgrade, more enterprises are opting for this platform or switching from other CMS to Kentico.
 
Looking at the demand of Kentico, it becomes important that you have the knowledge to distinguish between a professional Kentico developer and a company that provides Kentico development services or just another project-hunter. 

 

The Qualities of a Reliable Kentico Services Provider you need to keep in mind: 

 

1) Check If They Have Solid Credentials 

 
Since Kentico is built on the .Net framework and comes with highly customizable and scalable benefits; some offshore service-providers think that their team of developers can easily handle a project even without any specialization in Kentico. This takes a toll on their partnership with their client at a later stage.
 
You can check the credibility of the company pitching for your project from their portfolio. Also, you can get the required assurance by reviewing the feedback of their clients.  
 
If any company claims of handling numerous projects on Kentico, you must check the type of projects they have worked on. 
 

2) Reliable Delivery Process

 
The Kentico CMS development company you select should be able to execute their delivery methodology with ease, outlining why they created the model at the first place, and how it will benefit your project.
 
Are they able to outline key staff roles, your role, escalation procedures, risk management, stages of delivery and process related to them, their approach to ensure quality outcome, and warranty support?
 
A development company that is professional and serious about providing you quality services will confidently recite their process. They will know what they are doing and why they are the best choice to work with you.  
 

3) Heavy Customization Experience

 
The one quality that companies and developers like about Kentico framework is the extent to which it can be customized. And, it largely depends on the efficiency and creativity of the developer to come up with the most viable solution, which yields long-lasting results.
 
No matter how well-equipped the platform Kentico is, it will produce unwanted outcomes if the developer working with it doesn’t understand how to customize it to match the expectation of the client or to meet their business needs.  
 
It is clear that if your website does not turn out as impressive as it could have been, the fault lies majorly in who you chose for the job. Hence, choose wisely. 

 

Conclusion 

 
Kentico is undoubtedly one of the best CMS platforms available today for digital marketers. Those who want to hire a certified professional need to test the developer or company they choose from every angle mentioned above before giving their final nod.
 
Cogniter Technologies is a proud Kentico CMS development company serving clients all over the world. We have the most experienced and talented team of Kentico developers for hire. For your Kentico related queries, get in touch with us:

5 Factors to Consider When Choosing a Web Application Development Company

WEDNESDAY, JUNE 27, 2018

Any business that aspires to get successful today needs a robust presence on the World Wide Web.
 
Over the years, web application development has become immensely popular and almost all business owners around the globe seek outstanding web applications to lower costs and increase the return on investment of their business. However, choosing the right web application development company is not an easy task, given the fact that there are a plethora of development companies flooding the market today.
 
Here we enlist important five factors to consider when choosing a web application development company for your idea or business model:
 
1) Experience
 
It goes without saying that experience is the most significant criteria while choosing a web application development company to take control of your web app development project. New developers may create an excellent app, but they may not have the judgment to handle issues that are bound to arise. Find out the capability of the developers to create and solve the issues related to the apps.
 
2) Technology
 
The web application development company you choose must have comprehensive knowledge of the latest web development technologies and best practices. Make sure the web application developers who are assigned to your project are highly trained professionals. You can get a clear idea from the portfolio of the company and looking at their previous work. You can also check and see if their previous clients are satisfied with the quality of work they have done.
 
3) Business Model
 
The business model of a web application development company will give you insights into their functioning. There are many companies who only believe in starting and ending a project, and do not offer any maintenance or support. Hence, if you are seeking support for a web application, it might be better to choose a company that does provide over all assistance.
 
4) Coding Standard
 
It is important to ensure that the web application development company you select has sound knowledge of the programming language and related tools that a software requires. The more structured the framework and organizational coding system the better will be the code maintainability. Also, it would lead to efficient utilization of an application’s library, components, and tools.   
 
5) Budget
 
Another major factor that you need to consider when hiring a web application development company is the budget. Budget is one of the most important aspect that you should discuss with the development company. Choose a reputable company that won’t charge you high and neither will it deliver poor-quality services, since, for them reputation is more important than money.
 
In Conclusion
 
Choosing a web development company requires work at your end.  What you need is a company comfortable with the latest technologies, offering a high-quality product, with relevant after-development support, and one that fits neatly into your budget. Cogniter Technologies fulfils all these requirements easily and effectively.
 
Cogniter Technologies provides custom web application development services since 2003. Web application developers at Cogniter will apply their passion and expertise to deliver an app that exceeds your expectations and satisfies your business requirements.
