Read through our resource hub to find articles on a variety of topics including tips on successfully delivering software projects and blending business and IT, insight into the processes we follow for development, and even information about the technologies we use.
As global demand for user-facing and internal enterprise apps continues to increase, the mobile development industry has focused largely on increasing developer productivity to satisfy the demand. We have seen huge advancements in cross-platform tooling and rapid development workflows, which has allowed enterprises to cut mobile development cycles and rush to market much sooner than in previous years. This quick-to-market app delivery model lends itself to the unintended consequence of security being an afterthought, if it’s being considered at all.
If your business is in the market for a new Content Management System, or CMS, you might be feeling overwhelmed with options. One quick way to narrow down the choices is to focus on which type of programming language your development team is most comfortable working in. Here at Aptera, we focus primarily on Microsoft-based systems in .NET. If you do, too, we’ve reviewed five top .NET-based CMS platforms and compared them based on features, cost, licensing, and more to help you determine which is the best fit for your business.
When developing web applications, it’s important to make sure you’re taking possible security risks into consideration. This is a topic that our Lead Security Engineer, Nathan Buuck, takes very seriously. He was recently a featured speaker at the annual Indiana Tech Engineering and Computer Science (ITECS) Technology Conference, talking about common web app risks and mitigations.
C. Ray Harvey, Aptera’s Director of Strategic Services has worked at Aptera for 8 years and through past lives as a copywriter, project manager, and business analyst, he has worked to engage Aptera’s clients and quickly design solutions for their businesses. He has a passion for defining a process and finding consensus. I sat down to talk with him about what Sitefinity is and how we use it at Aptera for clients.
In the days before the building configurator eQuote, Nucor Building Systems’ clients had to complete orders for custom pre-engineered metal-frame buildings with desktop software. Nucor’s sales team devoted a lot of time and energy to supporting, updating, and maintaining the system.
The first set of challenges I want to talk about are the ones that didn’t involve technology. Programmers are often quick to jump to the technical side of the project. But for multibrand projects, it is important to have a solid non-technical foundation before the development begins.
