Web application development refers to the creation of applications
over a remote server that are accessible through the internet. Web
app development has evolved rapidly over the past decade.
Traditional web app development consisted of creating static web
pages enabled by the internet, however, we have now come a long
way. The advent of CMS (Content Management System) and web
development frameworks have made customized web application
development more functional, easier and approachable. An efficient
web application can add to your business functionality, serve as an
interactive tool between business and clients, ease data entry, and
provide an overall boost to your business. Today, custom web app
development has a lot of potential to serve businesses and
leveraging its potential gives your business an additional edge.
Types of Web Applications We Develop:
Web applications have evolved dramatically. Now we are able to
develop a range of web applications that can solve a variety of
problems simply and efficiently. The goal is no more to develop
applications but to provide solutions to mundane repetitive tasks
and reduce human effort. Here are some types of web applications
that we develop:
1. Dynamic Web Application:
A static web page delivers the same information to all users. These
pages, like online directories, work in the same manner for all
users. On the other hand, dynamic web application functions based
on specific requests put by the user. The content delivered by
these sites is based on user’s actions and hence it varies for each
individual, for example, social media sites.
2. E-commerce Platform:
The e-commerce boom has precipitated a huge rise in the number of
e-commerce platforms available today. From Magento to WooCommerce
to Shopify, at NewGenApps we specialize in the development of each
of these platforms. Our customized e-commerce solutions also
include recommendation systems and predictive modelling which can
add a massive boost to your e-commerce management capabilities.
3. Portal Web Application:
Unlike traditional web applications, portals are considered as a
storehouse of data from a variety of resources. A web portal
categorizes, summarises and lists resources based on specific
criteria and displays relevant information to the user. It also
provides functionalities like searching other websites, weather
information, stock quotes etc. Thus, portals serve as a powerhouse
enabling users to explore valuable information on the web. Popular
examples of such portals include Yahoo, Wikipedia etc.
4. Web Application with a CMS:
A content management system (CMS) is a GUI interface that enables
content modification and syndication. While developing a custom web
application 70% of the code goes into incorporating CMS
functionality. Advanced CMS like Wordpress, Drupal, Joomla etc.
have subsided this complexity to a great extent. Now, an
application can be designed taking any of the CMS as a base and
various functionalities can be implemented over them. Facebook
itself is built on Wordpress and is still one of the most popular
web applications today.
5. Company Facing/ Customer Facing Application:
A company facing web application aims to bring about solutions to
the company’s internal problems and activities. These applications
include project management applications, internal management
solutions etc. On the other hand, customer-facing applications aim
to work as the company’s agents for their customers. These
applications establish a line of communication and aim to solve the
customer’s problems and improve the experience. For example, online
help desk, My Starbucks Idea app etc.
