What is modern application development?

The new generation cloud applications have to support various devices, handle a massive amount of data and concurrent users, remain available 24X7, respond in real-time, and continuously introduce new features.

Modern Application Development brings together agile development practices, open-source cloud-native technologies and architecture, and DevOps techniques; to rapidly deliver flexible, reliable, scalable, and secure cloud applications.

Modern Application Development Benefits

Fast

Short design and development iterations get working software in the hands of the end-users quickly. Cloud infrastructure automation and code pipelines speed up deployment.

Flexible

Code Refactoring, self-testing code, and continuous integration (CI) make it easy to change or introduce new features. Test-Driven Development protects against code breakage and ensures a glitch-free user experience.

Reliable

Application functionality is packaged in shared-nothing independent microservices that can be replicated almost instantly to provide redundancy in case of infrastructure failure or outages.

Scalable

Microservices can be programmatically scaled depending on the workload to manage demand spikes. This feature helps keep applications performant as well as save cloud costs.

Secure

Multi-layer security, Cloud-native 4Cs (Cloud, Cluster, Container, Code) approach based on “defense in depth” IT security model mitigates threats and vulnerabilities.

Cost-Effective

Relatively smaller teams can design-build and manage large applications. Open-source technologies help to save substantial licensing costs.
