The world economy today is so dynamic that Businesses have to constantly innovate to keep pace with the change and they can’t do this without the use of technology. Hence the technology landscape is also changing faster than ever before and traditional models are getting disrupted with newer models and this is only possible when organizations have the right mix of people, processes and technology.
In line with that adoption of Cloud-Native Application, architecture can help organizations to adapt to such changes. It is imperative to have an effective strategy and a robust architecture to migrate old monolithic and SOA based architectures to Cloud-Native Architectures.
Cloud-Native Architecture calls for a different strategy and technology approach which would require to have a platform to build and operate Cloud-Native Applications and Services that can automate, integrate various pieces of DevOps, Continuous Delivery, Containers and above all Microservices.
- DevOps is a collaborative approach that involves the practice of automating the various steps and processes between the development and IT teams, so that they can seamlessly build, test, and release software faster and more reliably.
- Continuous delivery (CD) is an approach in which the development teams build and test their codes in very short cycles, clubbed with a very high automation process in place. This approach helps the teams to build, test and deploy software quickly by adopting an approach that is more incremental in nature rather than one big overhaul of a software code.
- Microservices Architecture is an architectural approach that segregates an application into a collection of loosely coupled and independent services. The advantage of this is that they can be easily maintained and can be tested easily. These microservice can be easily deployed, modified and upgraded, scaled. The other advantage of this architecture is that each of these microservices can be stopped and restarted independent of other microservices in the application without impacting end customers. This helps in the rapid and robust delivery of complex and large applications.
- Container is a stand-alone, lightweight, executable package that contains everything needed to run a software. It would include the code, system libraries, system tools, runtime, and settings. Containers are regarded as more resource-efficient than VMs
Though Business and IT leaders, over the decades have been leveraging technology solutions to address business requirements but with the fast-changing global economy has been pushing organizations to adopt new technologies and implement best practices. Every such organization is today constantly looking at refining and redesigning its Application landscape to make sure that their organizational and business goals are met.
Today with a bouquet of options available, Web Applications still hold its place when it comes to Enterprises looking to automate and digitalize manual business processes.
Mobile Applications have become an integral part of Enterprise’s Digital footprint. From email to enterprise applications to corporate dashboards- employees want it on their handphone. Enterprises have been proactively adopting a mobile-first strategy as part of their Digital Strategy and as such Mobile Application Development becomes an important ask from such enterprises.
Depending on the Customer’s requirements, the following are the different flavors of Mobile Application
Native Mobile Application Development
A Native App is a smartphone application that is coded in a specific programming language and for a certain operating system. Native Apps have access to the phone’s various components like camera, GPS, Address Books, etc. These are usually faster than Hybrid Apps.
HTML5 Hybrid Mobile Application Development
A Hybrid App is an application that is built using HTML 5, CSS, etc. which is then wrapped in a native container. The native container does the maximum heavy lifting and loads the maximum information required while navigating through different pages.
Options around Mobile Applications

App-Specific UI/UX Design/Redesign
No matter where you are in your Mobile journey – whether you are just beginning or already have an APP and you want to redesign your App and give it a fresh look, we at Interwork can help you with that.
App Testing & Security
Testing is always an integral part of any App Development Life Cycle. Security is very vital to any App development and deployment strategy and without proper testing and security audits, you may be risking yourself. We at Interwork can help you with Testing & Security Audit of your Mobile App.
End-to-End DevOps of Mobile Apps
Interwork has the expertise to automate the deployment process from Application Build to Deployment in Play Store or App Store.
App Support and Maintenance
On an ongoing basis, your Mobile App would need overhauling and it is a tedious, time consuming and costly exercise but we are specialized to handle such exercises with ease. At Interwork, we go that extra mile to make your Mobile App experience seamless.
Application Migration would involve moving an application from one computing environment to another and the reason for this could be many, for instance, you would move an application from your on-premise datacentre to cloud or migrate a legacy application to a cloud-native application.
It may sound simple but it involves complex planning and strategy because each application is different from others and its dependencies on technical architecture, operating system, database, environment, security, compliances, etc are different.
While reasons are many, the following are a few that are significant.
- On-Premise to Cloud: These days, this is a very common strategy in which organizations are moving their applications from an on-premises server hosted in their datacentre to a VM in the cloud without changing anything.
- Re-Architecting: Re-Architecting usually means totally revamping the application with significant changes to it so that it can scale up and boost performance.
- End of Life: In many cases, it would make sense to retire the application. because its usage might have become minimal or because its features and functionalities are already built in any of your newer applications or because it is less complex and more cost-effective to replace it with a new application
Organizations today are heavily dependent on technology and applications are a key business driver and need smooth functioning of business processes. The ever-changing global dynamics demands organizations to keep their applications up and running with minimal downtime in order to be competitive and be ahead of the competition and hence the need for application maintenance is the need of the day
With ever-increasing cost pressures, Enterprises are looking at innovative ways of application maintenance. Customization of the existing applications or cutting down the usage of legacy applications is key to save cost and increase performance and user experience. Lowering support costs and total cost of ownership (TCO) is something that they are keen on.
