With the tumultuous year of 2020 thankfully in the rearview mirror, organizations around the world have been forced to adapt to a new paradigm of how software is developed in 2021. Previous predictions of digital transformation set for the coming years were instead implemented in a mere matter of months. This acceleration has led to a chain reaction, ushering in new approaches to find qualified software developers in 2021 that enable organizations to adapt to emerging technologies and best-practices. We wanted to write this article to highlight how Limelyte can help your business, and why we stand out from the pack.
2021 is a new year for organizations to reorient their approach towards software development and integrating new models of conducting business. Whether you’re starting a new business or expanding your staff, the choice of hiring Limelyte to develop your software has its benefits.
Limelyte allows organizations to manage a system to do exactly what it needs to do. With software now encompassing nearly every facet of doing business in both digital and physical realms, developers are the conduit for taming complexity and controlling every business process.
From more accurate reporting in real-time for supply chains to mobile application development for an employee payroll, the scope of control is only limited by the quality of development by skilled individuals or teams. The ability to tailor your business systems to match your workflow and not rely on boxed products is the future.
The main challenge lies in harnessing solutions that are commercially-built and coupling it with custom code built from the ground up. One-size-fits-all solutions need to be adapted to a particular business model through open-source code, reusable libraries of pre-built solutions, and a mastery of API - among many other solutions. Custom software can be devised to address particular solutions and create a framework which bring a greater sense of control, augmenting functionalities and reducing/eliminating complications and redundancies in the future.
It’s no secret that organizations are routinely bogged down in making sure systems work together. Software, operating systems, hardware, networks, IoT devices - you name it, there’s bound to be compatibility issues. The result? Excessive downtime and sluggish performance, both detrimental to an organization’s livelihood that results in lost revenue and efficiency.
As a solution to incompatibilities, Limelyte makes systems that don’t work together, work together. Addressing these issues, such as proprietary software licenses, non-unified cloud services, and conflicts between communication protocols are all par for the course in today’s tech-centric environments.
For example, an organization’s accounting system may have issues integrating with inventory management systems. By streamlining processes like this, Limelyte solves issues that may have been previously insurmountable or sluggish.
Technology is ever-expanding into new realms of complexity. This creates a lag for organizations that may not be first-adopters to remain competitive, but also renders current systems obsolete - sometimes in the matter of months.
Limelyte helps organizations stay ahead of the curve. With 2021 ushering in the rise of such novel trends as hybrid-work environments, software developers are directly responsible for accommodating these technologies and adapting new methodologies for organizational relevancy.
Organizations that choose to hire Limelyte to handle their technological demands also attain a special benefit of adaptability: Cross-pollination. Limelyte is experienced in adapting software across multiple industries and usages, which becomes available to organizations that hire their services.
Having an agile and lean business model is key for organizations in 2021, particularly for startups and newer organizations that are now up against global competitors.
Software developers are tasked with rooting out workflow inefficiencies to create a streamlined operation. Consider the following examples:
Troubleshooting is a regular part of the occupation for software developers. At some point in time or another, systems will eventually fail or problems develop that need maintenance to address immediately. Considering how much downtime can cost a business through lost revenue, software developers are a godsend when a network is down, a bug in the code prevents scaling, and other system-wide issues.
Limelyte can diagnose where potential bottlenecks occur, or where unfavorable interactions with an organization appear - such as a browser incompatibility or poor mobile-only design from website developers. For example, having someone watch where customers are getting stuck on a company site can be rectified through implementing UX/UI best-practices (User Experience/User Interface).
Now that digital communication has become the preferred method of interfacing with customers, creating a seamless experience that reflects an organization’s ethos and responsiveness is important for public perception of a brand.
Limelyte developers both on the front-end and back-end of web development are the unseen faces of the company’s interfacing with the public. Through hiring software developers with this understanding, you bridge the divide and create a positive experience with the brand. Such areas include creating an application to communicate with customers directly, enhanced password encryption for cybersecurity, and more.
Thanks to our modern technology, there are more opportunities to expand and create new revenue streams with the help of Limelyte. Older businesses that need to modernize can utilize software developers as a way to retrofit old business models to newer forms of business, optimize pricing algorithms, and discover underutilized methods of online commerce that were previously not feasible.
The following are just some ways that software developers can realize new profits and revenue streams:
Organizations that operate locally may have trouble accessing or coordinating talent. With the rise of remote work and its mass adoption for the foreseeable future, the nature of a software developer is uniquely suited to supplant older methodologies of work.
Thus, companies have begun to adopt a new model of establishing a talent-base through remote workers such as Limelyte. Sometimes referred to as “TaaS” (Team as a Service), companies are able to take advantage of this emerging trend of a “modular” form of staffing. Businesses can augment their operations through hiring a ready-made team of software developers and management on a need-basis, circumventing the cost of retaining in-house teams.
Similarly, Limelyte has a synergistic role in designing low-code and no-code solutions to facilitate development that accommodates less tech-adept staff/employees. Developing easy-to-use solutions results in such benefits as reduced training time, better company culture, and other operational overheads.
