Web application development technologies are changing faster than ever, what’s popular now might become obsolete in the next few years. Thus, it’s important that businesses keep themselves updated with new technologies in order to stay competitive in the new digital economy.

In this article, we examine a number of new and emerging technologies in the web app development industries that are expected to become popular in the next few years.

#1 Progressive web applications

We are transitioning to the mobile first world, where the internet web traffic generated from mobile devices will dominate and surpassing web traffic from laptop/desktop. Therefore, it’s essential that businesses have their websites developed meeting various mobile requirements. Progressive web app (PWA) is the solution that can help businesses to solve the aforementioned mobile requirements. 

With PWA, web visitors can access the business sites via web browsers on any device across all mobile platforms (iOS and Android) without having to visit app store and download the app for installation. In its simplest sense, Progressive web apps (PWA) are like mobile app delivered through the web using web technologies such as: HTML/CSS/Javascript. PWAs are easy to develop, and thus has attracted companies to adopting them for their web development needs.

#2 Blockchain

More than just cryptocurrency, blockchain technologies have various application for businesses including web application development. In the recent years, Blockchain has become one of the most talked about topic in the software development world.

Due to its association with cryptocurrency, blockchain technology was mainly used in the financial services industry. However, thanks to its ability to easily and securely record digital transactions in a decentralized ledger, blockchain is expected to play an important role in the software development services for various industries such as: transportation and logistics, media and entertainment, healthcare, education, e-commerce and retails etc.

#3 Cybersecurity

Can you imagine your life without security at your home or road or workplace? Probably no because security is an essential parameter of human life. This issue spreads to the business world as well. The software loss and threats are becoming the primary concern to check by custom software developers.

Cyber security always remain the essential aspect of any web development project, especially considering the rising of hacking activities and cyber attacks in the recent years. Furthermore, nowadays business web systems have evolved beyond the purpose of providing information or entertainment. Large commercial websites involve the handling large amount of customers’ information including sensitive data such as payment information (credit card number, billing address etc.)

Thus, it’s important that companies incorporate and apply all the necessary security measures since the beginning stage of their development project in order to meet all the cybersecurity regulations and standards. Neglecting cyber security would be very expensive as the cost of recovering and fixing security vulnerabilities is way more costly than adopting security measures since the beginning.

#4 Outsourcing Software Development

For many companies that are not in the IT industry, developing their own web application from scratch is no easy task. Besides, the web application development requirements for businesses are constantly evolving everyday and may requiring advanced technologies such as Machine Learning or Advanced data analytics for the development. As a result, companies need to carefully determine the requirements and assess if their in-house is capable of implementing the development project.

After deciding that your business is ready to build a web application, the next stage is to choose how to develop it. Companies can hire a team of developers to do it in-house or outsource the bulk of the development tasks to a software development outsourcing company. 

Outsourcing provides quick access to large pool of IT developers, at the same time helps business save time and cost. Thus, software outsourcing should be considered as the preferred option especially when time is of essence, and companies looking to launch their applications fast.

Final words:

These new and advanced technologies provide an indication and about the constant changing in the web app development industry. Web and custom app developers are constantly updating and renovating themselves order to enhance and build innovative web products. It’s important that companies keep up to date with new technologies and adopting them for their web development, gaining competitive advantage to stay ahead of the race.
