What Does Custom Application Development Entail?

Custom software and custom application development consist of designing, creating, deploying, and maintaining applications tailored for a specific set of users, functions, or organizations.

These applications are also designed to serve a particular set of needs – for example, a manufacturer might want a field service equipment maintenance app, or a healthcare system might be looking to build a health and fitness web and mobile application for their patients to use.

Benefits of Building Custom Applications

Custom applications automate repetitive tasks – such as data movement and managing workflows – to save time and accelerate productivity. With custom applications, organizations can save on investing in multiple applications and reduce the risks from external threats. Moreover, custom applications are cost-effective, agile, and highly efficient.

Custom applications can be taken to the market where they are sold as SaaS products that generate revenue. In this way they serve two purposes: your immediate needs, and revenue generation. Done right, a custom application can end up paying for itself in this way.

There is no such thing as perfect software. No matter what configuration you choose while buying software off-the-shelf, there will probably always be inefficiencies, a lack of specific features that your business requires, and/or the need for some data manipulation to connect your software stack.

All of this can have a negative impact on ROI. It doesn’t have to be this way, though.

Transforming Your Employee and Customer Experience

Custom software or custom applications offer huge advantages over out-of-the-box solutions, especially if you’re looking to revamp your business process management and digital transformation initiatives. By working with a custom application or custom software development services provider, you can build scalable web and mobile applications that fit your business needs and put you in control to improve efficiency and save time, cost, and effort.

There is a need for a greater emphasis on ingenuity, creativity and vision—not to mention the quality of the products and services themselves and customer service. A bigger picture has emerged, that of “tech-egality,” of non-tech savvy companies benefitting from the low-code/no-code platforms to stand up against more technology-advanced competitors.

Our Custom Application Development Expertise

Trianz has many years of experience building scalable and futuristic applications that have unlocked new opportunities for hundreds of organizations and boosted their ROI.

We bring our consulting expertise in custom software solutions, custom application development, data management, integration, and software advisory services to deliver an end-to-end design and development service using a rigorous and tested process.

Transforming Your Employee and Customer Experience

Our Services

Our seasoned team covers the full spectrum of custom application development, from consulting and development to migration and maintenance.

Application Consulting

Application Consulting

We start with a discovery session to explore an organization’s business requirements, which may be very complex. Our experts field questions in this session and suggest possible solutions for all the critical challenges a business can face during different phases of software lifecycle development – from project ideation, initialization, and design development to post-development consulting where we recommend a deployment environment.

Application Development

Application Development

Our development teams build interactive, dynamic, and user-friendly applications from scratch or revamp an organization’s existing application with tailored features and integrations. This results in high-performance applications that enable enhanced interoperability, scalability, and flexibility, leading to a more streamlined and automated approach.

Application Migration

Application Migration

We accelerate time to market by migrating applications to today’s containerized and cloud-native environments and bringing in best practices to plan a seamless application migration. As part of our services, we delve into the specifics of an organization’s application portfolio, security and compliance requirements, the current consumption of cloud resources, and the nature of the on-premises storage, compute, and network infrastructures.

Application Integration

Application Integration

Trianz’ application integration services enable applications and systems built separately to work together, resulting in new capabilities and efficiencies that cut costs and uncover insights. We help bridge the gap between an organization’s existing on-premises systems and fast-evolving cloud-based enterprise applications by merging and optimizing data and workflows among multiple software applications to achieve integrations that modernize infrastructures and support agile business operations.

Application Maintenance

Application Maintenance

We go beyond the widely understood meaning of application maintenance by not just fixing defects but also modifying the entire application to improve performance. Our process involves a thorough study of the existing applications to identify improvement areas and offer customized solutions.

Our Approach

Trianz leverages an “Agile + Design Thinking” based methodology to provide a structured process that encourages creative problem-solving. It also reduces the time between development and deployment while increasing product quality and team productivity.

Our overall process involves gathering requirements, talking to the users, arriving at an analysis after thorough research, executing the journey- or process-mapping, performing a technology capability assessment, and deploying a rigorous and tested design process.

We develop a proof of concept and get early user feedback so we can make any necessary changes earlier in the journey. After adjusting the design, we deliver and maintain the application, which is built to meet your specific needs.

In addition to the actual building of the application, our process includes collaborative exercises, sharing of data-driven insights, ideation, prototyping and testing, utilizing user stories to create design experiences, and conducting user testing and acceptance. We also provide post-launch support with our 24x7, custom software and application management teams.

Our application building approach involves a combination of the following:

  • Microservices Architecture

    Microservices are single-function applications made of small, self-contained units that work together through language-independent application programming interfaces (APIs). Microservices architecture is comparatively faster and more agile than a traditional application architecture.

  • Containerization and Pods

    Containers are separate workload environments in a virtualized operating system, whereas a pod is a group of one or more containers with shared storage/network resources. Containers house the resources apps need to run, and they are portable across operating systems. They also speed up workload processes and application delivery, and they create a flexible, scalable deployment pipeline that enables automation of releases and upgrades.

Move Your Business Forward with Custom Applications

Because systems and operations are becoming increasingly complex, customization is turning into more the norm than the exception.

By teaming with a custom application development services provider, you can conduct a thorough evaluation to uncover your software needs and build and deploy an application tailored to your specific requirements – resulting in improved efficiency, as well as savings when it comes to time, cost, and effort.
