What is enterprise application development?

The demand for enterprise applications has been steadily increasing over the last few years. It is estimated that IT will spend around $600 Billion on enterprise application development by the end of 2022. However, IT teams often struggle to keep up with the demands. Resources are stretched, and legacy systems and outdated delivery methods hinder growth.

At Integrove, we develop bespoke enterprise applications that are custom-made to fit your business needs. But first, let us show you what’s possible with enterprise applications.

What is enterprise application development?

What is enterprise application development? Simply put, enterprise application development is the process of creating applications for businesses that address the business problems they face or customizing apps to fit their complex business requirements.

The purpose of an enterprise application can range from solving pain points to allowing employees to complete their tasks more efficiently. Whatever you may need, enterprise applications may be the solution.

What is Enterprise Application Development

Why develop an enterprise application?

When you choose Integrove to develop your enterprise application, you can control every aspect of the application. It will be made entirely to fit your purposes. Enterprise applications help you, and your company, do more. They can streamline and even automate certain tasks, give you more control over your data, and help increase security.

Why you need enterprise applications

Increased productivity & flexibility

When employees no longer have to complete repetitive tasks, they become more productive. By automating repetitive tasks through an enterprise app, you free up your employee’s time and attention. This leads to higher productivity, and in the end, higher outputs and profits.

Easier Decision Making

An enterprise application can improve the process of making business plans and tracking your business performance. Enterprise apps can give you access to near real-time data, whether it be for the production process or business expenses. Data dashboards group all the information you need in one place, and making decisions becomes easier and more effective.

Improved Data Management

Improved data management goes hand-in-hand with easier decision-making. Enterprise applications increase interoperability between different departments of your business. An agile enterprise app has access to all the information gathered by business applications which eliminates the data processing responsibilities.

While it is important to understand the benefits of enterprise apps, it’s also important to understand the cost of not having an enterprise app. Some of these include:

  • Less efficient operations
  • Losing existing clients
  • High employee turnover
  • Missing out on new clients

How to get started with enterprise app development

While developing the enterprise application, agility, speed and scalability are crucial. However, there are a few things you should think of before starting on your enterprise application.

  • Business objectives – it’s important to know which goals you want to achieve and which problems you want to solve
  • Agile development approach – an agile development approach gives a step-by-step method for app development. It will help in determining the design, development, and testing methods beforehand and allow you to return to the previous stages of development, fix issues and continue the development process.
  • Edge technology –  your enterprise app needs to keep up with the fast-paced tech world. Be sure to select the right technologies when developing your enterprise app.
  • Admin and control – you need to decide who will be responsible for your app and provide them with the proper training.
