Our Custom Software Development Technologies

AWS and RedShift??

Amazon Web Services represent one of the most influential and useful web and data hosting sets in the industry. With the ability to spin up servers on-demand and efficiently handle large data sets, we’re able to work with our clients to identify their needs and scale AWS to their needs. Our experience with AWS means that we can help you not only launch your solution in the cloud but we can help you grow your offering to new heights while maintaining a high level of software quality. Redshift is the Amazon cloud data warehouse, where all your apps data will be analyzed and combined within different structures to pull insights about your user base and app activity. Redshift one of the best ways to scale and grow your project while keeping security and performance in mind.

MongoDB

For clients with significant data demands, Zco uses MongoDB to quickly and securely store and retrieve information. As opposed to typical database structures, MongoDB uses collections and documents, compared to tables and rows. As a distributed database, MongoDB ensures that no matter how large a software product, its data will scale according to the application’s needs. We may use MongoDB for your project for instances where we need to work with Big Data, mobile and social infrastructure, and manage user data.

Azure

Microsoft’s cloud computing platform, Azure, is utilized by international companies and small businesses for remote data management and processing. Azure offers an enhanced security level and is often the choice by government organizations looking for cloud computing and storage. Azure offers AI-driven data processing, hosting, and over 100 tools to support your organization. We can use Azure to augment and help our clients from virtual machines to encrypted and high-performance databases. This level of reliability, security, and scalability is just one reason we leverage this tool to deliver high-quality software development services.

IoT

The internet of things, or IoT, continues to grow at a staggering pace. Devices ranging from robotic arms to driverless vehicles continue to enter service, and clients need robust software that can monitor and control a vast array of systems. With our dedicated team of IoT engineers and developers, we can create software that our clients can use to watch or monitor thousands of devices simultaneously. With the introduction of 5G and faster data transmission speeds, companies have seen that previously unreachable IoT goals are now feasible through quality developers like Zco.? When it comes to integrating enterprisegrade solutions with IoT, you must be reducing manual work and increasing overall business efficiency. With this long-range data transmission, you are taking advantage of embedded devices with sensors and actuators that provide cloud platforms relevant data. You can now automate processes that depend on contextual information from machines, vehicles, and other equipment and have a mobile application or software to facilitate that automation.

Secure Solutions

No matter the size of your organization or your project’s scope, we will ensure that your software utilizes the latest technology to protect your data. We pride ourselves on integrating only the most advanced and secure technology into our clients’ software as a service product. Whether that means implementing cutting edge encryption technology, biometric measures, or cloud storage integration, we will find secure custom software solutions to safeguard you and your data. The attention to detail and care put into our work is just one reason we are rated one of the top mobile app and custom software developers in the U.S.

Featured Client Project

Single Digits provides high-speed internet access for enterprise-scale clients in the casino, hospitality, senior living, student housing and transportation industries . This means they must manage hundreds of networks, each with its own collection of devices, clients, and servers. We developed a robust client dashboard and service ticket system that gives their clients up-to-date information on their networks. It even allows for communication with Single Digits directly.

Our Enterprise Software Development Process

Step 1

Getting the Idea on Paper

Every custom software project begins with an in-depth assessment of your project’s requirements and its software life cycle. During this step, we break down all the apps potential uses that will determine the user experience. An account executive and project manager will work with you to define your project’s scope and develop a plan of action, which will outline the time and resources required. If your application is strictly for internal use, there will be a more in-depth process of gathering all necessary integrations and technologies needed to work fluidly with existing systems and applications.

Step 2

Laying Out the Technical Requirements

We’ll help you determine security and encryption requirements, the cost of custom software development, databases and cloud software, as well as integration with hardware and software development services your company utilizes. This step is essential for understanding your goal and identifying a clear plan of action as we advance in the enterprise software development process. Once a plan of action and statement of work are in place, the project moves to the next phase. This step may require our team to work with your internal IT or development team to ensure we have a clear image of what work is needed to improve your technology stack.

Step 3

Developing Through Agile Methodology

Through agile software development, your project is developed over several iterative cycles. The iterative cycles result in more communication and a continually improved product. New builds of your project are regularly shared with you and your team to solicit feedback and integrate your improvements. This development process is tried and true, resulting in a higher-performing product. If you require a new database or backend system, we will work with you to plan out a secure way of building a full-stack solution.

Step 4

Rigorous QA Testing

Our quality assurance teams ensure the product is rigorously tested throughout active development, eliminating any bugs found. With our rigorous testing procedures, we can ensure the best possible product. When it comes time to roll the software out to your organization’s employees and clients, it will be ready for prime time. We conduct several rounds of sandbox testing with your information security in mind. We also test your product in a secure testing environment with no possibility of impacting your production level operations.

Step 5

Deploying the Product to Users

At the end of the QA process, your app is deployed either internally or through its platform’s respective marketplace for public use. In either situation, we are here to help educate you on the proper deployment methods. If you are hosting the application in the cloud either through AWS or Azure, we can deploy it according to your IT department’s requirements or through an MDM. Also, it is essential to note that the application must be maintained. We offer support and maintenance after release to keep the product up to date and rock solid.

Our Quality Assurance Process

Quality assurance is performed independently of the engineering team. The team identifies bugs in the prototypes delivered by the design and engineering teams. Testers follow a rigorous verification and validation process throughout their testing. Discovered bugs are cataloged in project management software and are quickly addressed by developers.?

Applications are put through load tests to ensure they stand up to extreme and fringe use cases. Repeated attempts to crash the application on the load testing side are conducted to ensure the app’s stability in real-world conditions. Only after these tests have returned satisfactory results do we launch a client’s product.
