What is PHP and Why PHP Development?

Yet, still those who are a bit of non-technical, they always have two questions in mind – (1) What the heck is PHP, and (2) Why PHP?

Personal homepage, Hypertext Preprocessor, or better known as PHP is a server side scripting language, and is also used to create general-purpose programming language.

Not only that, it empowers most of the open source frameworks and languages such as WordPress, Drupal, Joomla, and so on.

Why PHP Development?

Most people who are looking for a solutions via websites, doesn’t really care about what is PHP, and / or why they should use it. Perhaps, as they are not aware about the technology and frameworks, hence, they are comfortable with any frameworks and programming language that their developer prefer to use. However, there are some points, which one should consider on why to choose PHP development. These mainly includes but not limited to:

  • Constantly updated and easy to learn: PHP is a constantly updated framework. Besides, for a professional PHP developer it is always easy to learn the updated version.

Yet, to make things simple, whenever you are looking for a website, than a website ought to have certain functionalities such as Newsletter, or perhaps PayPal integration, similarly a website needs a theme, which differs from website to website. There are thousands of plugins, themes, and modules available for PHP in all sorts of categories, and in all variations such as Paid, Free, and freemium, you can choose based on your budget and need. A professional php development company can surely suggest you the best in this regards.
  • Quality: You never have to worry about the quality of your website when you opt for PHP development. You can be rest assure that your website will load quickly, work smooth, and will also be search engine friendly.

Most Common Problem with Mobile App Development

Whenever a business needs a solution via mobile app development services, there comes one of the most foremost question that on which platform they would like the app to be developed; whether it is an iPhone, Android, or perhaps a Windows Phone device. This becomes one of the most challenging tasks for any business, especially for those businesses who are in need of customer oriented applications. The reason is quite simple as for a business their customers could have end number of preferences when it comes to smartphone usage, i.e., some prefer to iPhone, some Android, some Windows Phone, and there are even some who still prefer to use their old-fashioned BlackBerry. This makes it difficult for a business that whether to opt for an app solution for iPhone, Android, Windows Phone, or some other devices.

Of course, the marketing division will ensure to try to find out the maximum number of users / audience for the business, yet still developing an app for one particular platform can lead a business in a jeopardize situation as they won’t be able to target all the audience.

This is why when it comes to mobile app development services, many businesses prefer to develop an individual app for each platform. This ultimately takes a huge amount of investment in both terms, i.e., financially and time wise. A regular mobile app development cost anywhere between USD 5,000 to USD 8,000, wherein it takes anywhere between 2 to 4 months to develop the app, which includes designing, development, QA, and deployment on the respective App store. The ultimate investment for three major platforms could lead to somewhere between USD 15,000 to USD 24,000, wherein the time investment could be between 6 to 12 months, which is huge. The problem behind such high development cost behind each platform relies in their development platform. For instance, for iOS app development one needs the mastery on iOS SDK, which includes frameworks and languages such as X-Code and few others, whereas for Android app development one needs to master the Android SDK, and similarly for Windows Phone App development one needs to be skillful Windows SDK. This is the main reason behind the high cost and time duration for individual app development.

Solution

Cross platform mobile app development services turns out to be the best available solution to overcome such situation. It works on a state-of-the-art SDK which consists a sort of universal coding language and framework, which allows the developer to develop an application which can work smoothly and efficiently on each individual platform. Hence, the end result would be with an app, which requires development on only one SDK, and can perform efficiently on almost all major mobile platforms. This eventually help save a huge amount on the overall development cost, as well as on the time investment require behind the app development.

Finally, if you feel that if your business requires an app that can work efficiently on all major mobile platforms, seek for cross platform mobile app development services, today!

International Data Corporation aka IDC is a research firm, which is all about numbers. They are one of the pioneers in gathering worldwide data for smartphone market share and shipments. It has helped us to get an insight that forecasts the future of Windows Phone. Based on the data collected from IDC, it seems like that there is a growth potential for Windows Phone, while as known by all the future of BlackBerry is, well can’t say.

Below is a matrix, giving an insight of all the current smartphone platform’s future:

Sr.No Smartphone Market Share
2014 2018
1. BlackBerry 0.8% 0.3%
2. Android 80.2% 77.6%
3. Apple 14.8% 13.7%
4. Windows Phone 3.5% 6.4%

BlackBerry: With BlackBerry’s future already in vain, the IDC predicts a drop down of 0.8 % market share in 2014, and could drop further to 0.3% by 2018.

Android: Android will continue dominating the market this year and will see a growth of approx. around 80.2 %, which could see a small dropdown to 77.6 % in 2018.

Apple: Apple will be at 14.8 % in 2014, whereas it could also see a drop to 13.7 % in 2018.

Now this brings towards our final winner, i.e.,

Windows Phone: Windows Phone market share will hike by 6.4 % in 2018, predicted by IDC. It will be a hike from 3.5 % (in 2014) to 6.4 %, which shows a possibly upward graph in Windows Phone devices.

Yet, we don’t have to always rely on these numbers, as in September 2010, shortly prior to the launch of Windows Phone 7 devices, the IDC had predicted that “Windows Mobile” would have a 9.8 % market share in 2014.

With the advancement of technology, along with the advancement of new designing standards and web development platforms and frameworks, the demand of php development is growing day-in and day-out. Unlike few years back, when one have to depend on the skills of expert website designing and development company, now anyone can hire a skilled freelancer who can cater them almost the same level of services in a much budget price.

Besides, it’s not only the freelancers there are also a lot of start-up companies who can offer website development solutions via php at a cheaper rate. This has been possible due to the advancement and easiness on the overall php framework, which is getting easier and flexible day by day. As of now, the platform itself contains tons of framework which is very easy to use, and at the same time requires almost no technical expertise. For instance, WordPress is a CMS and a blog platform, which is such an open source framework based on PHP; it is almost as easy as any word editor, along with the availability of thousands of tools, plugins, themes, etc., allowing anyone to design and develop the website he desire.

So in the midst of all these competitive market scenario there comes a question that does there is still a demand of expert PHP development company? And if so than why? The simple answer is “Yes”. The reason is quite simple, yet a bit difficult to digest. The first reason behind the demand of expert php development solution provider is to seek quality.

Cheap Quality PHP Development Service Offered by Freelancers and Start-ups

Agreeing to the fact there are availability of several top-notch quality and expert freelancers and start-up companies, yet at the same time it is also a fact there is an availability of a lot of freelancers and start-ups who fails when it comes to quality. Such freelancers and start-ups are focused in providing cheap services, and try to gain more business via quantum volume. The websites and applications developed by such, might look good on the front-end with possibly superior quality designing, yet it will lack several aspects such as:

  • The coding might be rubbish, wherein the developer might have coded a lot of unnecessarily codes, or perhaps have done a lot of patch work to full-fill a certain functionality. Overall, this will affect the website’s load time, and several other performance issue.
  • The designs and / or code might be readily available and / or copied. The source code of any website and / or a particular functionality is readily available on the internet. At the same time, for a developer it is quite easy to steal any one’s design and coding standards, especially that of a fairly good website. Chances are that these freelancers and start-ups depends on such malpractices in order to reduce their overall in-house cost and to provide cheap quality product.

Besides, the above two there are several other malpractices that are practiced in the market today, especially followed by those who offer cheap quality services, in fact this is one of the core reason that why they offer cheap services.

Why Demand Expert PHP Development Company?

On the other hand, even with the availability of such cheap quality options, there are still firms and business who are indeed looking for robust quality and reliability services, rather than just getting it done at a cheap rate. Hence, even in the midst of all these, there is still a demand of expert php development company. Besides, it not only relies in quality and cheap options, there are also a high-level complex requirements, which is quite difficult to achieve with such freelancers and start-ups.

A professional and expert php development company doesn’t compromise in quality. Such a company is not only boasted with a vast team of php developers, yet at the same time they also possess a separate team of designers, HTML / XHTML, SEO, business / technical analyst, and so on. With the combination of all these skills, they offer the best quality solution, which can perfect match the client’s requirement. They also share their expert inputs, and suggestions regarding the requirement. For instance, by studying the client’s requirement, and industry they can suggest stuffs such as –

  • Preferred technology and framework for the requirement
  • If it is a website than whether it should be responsive or non-responsive
  • Whether there should be an integrated blog, newsletter, and such others features, modules, and / or plugins
  • The menu placement, and number of pages
  • Keywords and the type of contents
  • And so on…

Overall, such a professional company is not only focused towards just offering solution, but are focused towards offering a quality solution which perfectly suits’ the clients, as well as its business and targeted industry and country’s requirement.

Quality, along with affordability is a kind of solution that businesses are always focused to delivered. This is one of the core reason why businesses are always on lookout for technologically advanced solution, which can allow them to deliver this aspect of quality and affordability. Hence, when it comes to IT enabled solutions with a website or a web applications, most businesses prefer to opt for Open Source platform. Encompassing these needs of today’s modern businesses, PHP MySQL development plays an important role.

PHP, also known as personal home page or hypertext processor, being an open source scripting language is freely available and is used to develop web pages, dynamic websites, and web applications. On the other hand, MySQL is also an open source Relational Database Management System (RDMS), which works as a server and provides access to multiple users to numerous databases. Combined, both these together, PHP MySQL development is considered as the core of open source platform.

How to choose the right PHP MySQL Development Company?

Now when we look on the other side of the coin, almost every website design and development companies are focused to offer quality solution. This makes it difficult for you to opt for the best one. So how one can find the right company?

There are certain points that one should consider before choosing any company. This includes, but not limited to:

  • Start your search with Google – the company who ranks on the first page are most likely to offer quality services, and have the knowledge for the same. However, there is a catch as it is not always that the top ranked company that offers you a quality services, as others who doesn’t rank at all can also offer you the better service. And second, the company who ranks on the first page are most likely expensive. So you should make your move wisely.
  • Ask for portfolio – if it is a professional company, they will surely have a portfolio to showcase. Ask for it, so you can make your judgment. Also ask if they have worked on a similar requirement such as yours, as it will work as an advantage.
  • Experience – irrespective to say the more the experience the company does have, the more it will be able to provide quality solutions. Yet, this doesn’t mean to totally avoid the firms with less experience. Sometimes even a less experienced company could offer quality solution, at affordable rates than that of others.
  • Team – Ensure that the firm you chose have a proper team. Yet, the team is not only limited to development, it includes PHP & MySQL developers and DBAs (Database Administrators), coders, programmers, HTML / XHTML, designers, SEO, and more…
  • Pricing – Pricing is one of the major factor while you are searching for anything. Yet, you should also be aware that not everything cheap is of good quality, and not everything expensive too. Look for a company who fits your budget, and at the same time who can also offer you a quality solution.

Once you follow the above steps, you will surely be able to find the right company for your need.

Important of Mobile App Development Services for Business

Besides, apart from customer and sales centric approach, mobile app development services also empowers the business with business oriented apps such as inventory management, vehicle tracking, flight & hotel booking, and much more…

Various Mobile OS

However, all the above was just related to apps, and not the app platform. So on the other hand, when we look beyond just the mobile apps, we are able to find out that there are various platforms also known as Mobile OS or operating systems, are available such as iOS, Android, Windows Phone, as well as the recent ones Firefox OS, and Sailfish OS. Now as we all know that for any business the first and foremost priority is its customers, and with the availability of these many mobile OS and devices, it is always unsure that what most customers do prefer. Considering the fact that as of now (July 2014) the market is mainly focused towards iOS, Android, and Windows Phone devices, with most shares towards Android, than iOS, and later the Windows Phone, yet the other mobile OS are also getting highlight slowly and gradually. Hence, in the midst of all these mobile operating system it is indeed important to focus on all the mobile OS, as one don’t want to leave their 30 or 50 % of customer base unattended while developing an app only for one platform.

Why No for Mobile App Development for different platforms?

Pioneers in the industry, as well as the brands such eBay, Facebook, YouTube, Amazon, and more have already developed individual mobile apps for each platforms. Yet, despite of this fact, most of the businesses prefer to opt the mobile app development services limited to one platform because of many reasons. Some of the common reasons are:

  • Business limitations – not offering services on the other mobile devices, apart from the one chosen.
  • Business perspective – the app was meant to be use internally for the business and not targeting the customers.
  • Budget – Budget is one of the most common reasons why business doesn’t choose to opt for app relevant to multiple devices. The reason is that developing the same app for multiple platforms involves more time and cost, which a business would certainly like to avoid unless they are sure they are sure about its success.

Why Cross Platform Mobile App Development?

Cross platform mobile app development services is the answer to all the budget related questions that lies for the business. The service offers state-of-the-art SDK (Software Development Kits) which helps to develop a universal app, which can work flawlessly on almost all mobile platforms.

The SDK itself will do the needful to deliver the app for almost all platforms. Yet, most importantly, it proves to be way more cost effective as compare to developing individual app for each platform, at the same time it also saves a huge amount of time on the development. So to brief:

  • Delivers a single app that can work flawlessly on mobile platforms
  • Hence, no need for separate development for each platform
  • Proves to be a cost effective solution
  • Saves a huge amount of time on development

The competition between mobile platforms is increasing day in and day out. At the same time the users of the smartphone mobile devices are also increasing.

On the other hand businesses are always searching for new ways to increase their customer base, which thereby (in the end) leads them to increase profitability. Solutions via mobile app development have always been an optimal solution to reach mass number of audiences via smartphones and tablet devices. However, with availability of multiple mobile platforms available in the market it has become vital for the businesses to develop a dedicated app for each device – for e.g. iOS apps for iOS devices, Android apps for Android devices, Windows Phone apps for Windows Phone devices and so on.

Yet developing a dedicated app for each platform takes huge amount of time, and at the same time it also proves to be expensive. Hence, most of the businesses takes the side of one particular platform (iOS, Android, or Windows Phone), which they feel could prove to be fruitful to reach the mass audience. The jeopardy is if the business opts for an app for a particular mobile platform the chances are that he may lose half of its customers’ who are using other mobile platforms.
