In recent years the deployment of web applications as compared to PC based applications has expanded exponentially. A web application has an intrinsic benefit over PC applications as only one deliverable is necessary to accommodate an unlimited number of users, which can be anywhere with Internet access. In addition, the availability of high-speed Internet access at most locations has virtually eliminated the one drawback of a web application, limited performance based on limited bandwidth.
These advancements have also spurred the growth of web applications which are so interconnected to other systems, such as websites and corporate Intranets that it’s difficult to determine where the application ends and where it begins.
Since a web application can be small, or quite large, the key to the development of a successful system is the definition of the system’s functionality. Within the industry, the most common approach is to develop a specification document which outlines the project requirements. However, this approach is inherently flawed. A typical client will not be able to visualize how the end product will look or function, based on a specifications document. Arche’s solution is to create a comprehensive mock application. This is a visual representation of the entire application, without any database functionality.
The creation of a mock-application not only allows clients to see exactly how the program will look, but it gives them the ability to “test drive” the system and find areas which might have been missed or aspects that can be optimized for better performance.
This methodology allows Arche and its clients to work through all the obvious inaccuracies, prior to programming. A secondary benefit to Arche and its client’s, is this approach drastically reduces the possibility of a misunderstanding after programming has begun. A significant misunderstanding, once programming has launched, could result in change order as it can take a significant amount of time to recode large portions of an application. The Arche Solutions approach drastically reduces the possibility of a change order and ensures our clients will get exactly what they want. Our team has extensive experience in the development of complex web applications and we look forward to discussing your company’s requirements, with you.
