Desktop Applications

Building the right kind of desktop applications

Enterprises all across the globe have discovered the robustness and economy offered by desktops as they can be repaired at lower costs and require less maintenance. Studies have shown that hardware cost is only 23% of the cost incurred by an enterprise, rest all is software and licensing costs that are incurred every year and the great depression of 2008 made companies realize that open source technologies are the way forward in order to grow and desktops are the way forward when it comes to paring down their infrastructure costs. With these two economic factors converging, there was a severe need to develop desktop applications that could be used across the enterprise and help users to fetch important data and service customers on the phone by helping them make sense of their data in Connecticut.

Windows application development ruled the market with companies depending heavily on the windows platform for all their software needs. We regularly develop applications for the Windows store that help in boosting productivity, agility and efficiency within the enterprise. Even individual users find our applications quite useful that help them to make the right purchase decisions.

Mechanics behind development of desktop applications

Our experience has shown that the number one rule in developing desktop applications is to ensure that they are light-weight and can render fast on desktop screens even when they are not connected to the net. When they are connected to the internet, they should be able to fetch data faster and present it on the screens of the users. Fast syncing with servers and super-fast information retrieval is what users expect from robust scalable desktop applications that can simply weave magic in front of their eyes.

User interface design is another element that has to be kept in mind while developing desktop applications that are quite akin to web portals except for the fact that they work even when not connected to the web. In direct conjunction with user interface design is user experience design that has the potential to delight customers and make the most of their applications.

With most small businesses moving to open source operating systems and building their own development environment, desktop application development on the open source platform is gaining momentum and is set to revolutionize sales, business development, instructional design, teaching, research and make their own space in the computing space that has seen rapid changes in the past.
