    How Web-Based Tech Drives App Development

    Web technology enables developers to enhance the efficiency and quality of app development and support multiple browsers and screen sizes for app projects.
 

Organizations expect to increase their investments in web-based technologies to enhance the efficiency and quality of their app development, according to a recent survey from Sencha. The resulting report, "The State of the Modern Web," indicates that web technology enables developers to support multiple browsers and screen sizes for both desktop and mobile app projects. Findings also report on the emergence of web apps, which enable organizations to avoid building apps separately for every needed platform. Developers anticipate that increased visualization and analytics capabilities will help them better manage the growing complexities of data associated with web apps, as well as the overall volume of data. To make their jobs easier, developers said they'd like new browser versions that are readily supported, as well as easy access to information related to vendors' support, training and professional services. "For more than 20 years, web app development has evolved quickly," according to the report. "From its origins in the early 1990s with simple websites, it quickly grew to a worldwide phenomenon as technology matured and more dynamic browser-based applications were developed. … 'E-business' was born, and then morphed into simply 'business' as all businesses realized the need for a web strategy. Web applications continue to be critical for today's businesses, but now they need to be able to work across all device types and live for a long time to maximize investments." More than 1,130 IT development professionals took part in the research, which was conducted by Dimensional Research.
