Talented people are the most important aspect of successful software development. But which technology should they use for maximum benefit to your business? Here we outline the top 5 software development types and their advantages for companies.

Which are the best software development types for your business?

The key to successful software is the people who develop it, and a team’s ability to analyze exactly what a client needs, as well as select the appropriate technology.

That’s why we, at Ceiba, are so proud of our talent and determined to nurture our people with the training, environment and projects they need to excel.

When a company decides to commission a new digital product from us, we are often asked to outline the technology involved.

Here we discuss the top 5 software development types for today’s businesses.

How to choose the best software development type for your company


  • Front-end development

Front-end development creates a product’s user interface. Everything a user sees, including buttons, links, animations and more, is the result of front-end development. 

Angular and React are the stand out frameworks and libraries we consider:

  1. Angular front-end development:

    Developers love Angular and many consider it the best of today’s software development types.

    Businesses benefit because the Angular framework is highly versatile and its features help scale, optimize and increase web platforms’ speed.

    It can be used to develop cross-platform mobile apps that run on both Android and iOS – thereby offering companies better value for money.

  2. React front-end development:

    React is an efficient and much-loved JavaScript library that creates interactive user interfaces.

    Its popularity continues to grow, especially as this front-end library is extremely flexible and can be paired with other technologies that are used in back-end development too.

    Companies can take advantage of its multiple uses, including the development of web, mobile, desktop and VR apps, as well as static site building.

  • Mobile development

Mobile development is the creation of apps for mobile devices, which includes digital assistants as well as cellphones and tablets.

iOS and Android are the heavyweights here:

  1.  iOS mobile development:

    iOS, which is used to develop the apps used on Apple devices, is a giant in the industry.

    It generates satisfying and visually appealing interfaces for iPhone and iPad users, and offers high-end security protection against hacking and phishing, amongst other things.

    iOS customers are also more likely to pay for an app, possibly because Apple’s App Store is picky about the applications it accepts.

  2. Android mobile development:Android is the world’s most popular operating system with more than 2.5 billion users in almost 200 countries.Its mobile development is known for its easy customization, fast deployment and improved scalability, and its flexible apps are often considered the top choice for start-ups and other businesses intent on expansion.Android is also extremely compatible and the fact its end devices are generally cheaper than Apple’s is one reason why it has such a massive reach.
  • Back-end development

Back-end development focuses on everything a user cannot see, including databases, servers, architecture, back-end logic and application programming interfaces.

These are the frameworks we prefer:

  1.  Node:

    Node.js is an open-source execution environment for JavaScript designed to be speedy and straightforward – particularly when it comes to developing the essential functions that bring an app to market.

    Changes are also designed to be implemented more easily, with no need to make changes to the rest of the application.

    Node’s focus on speed has attracted some of the world’s biggest companies, including streaming service Netflix.

  2. NET:

    .NET is a cross-platform, open-source framework cherished for the fact it streamlines the software development process, making it faster and simpler.

    It’s highly scalable and a great choice for fast-growing companies that need apps ready to take on bigger loads.

    This robust framework allows teams to integrate their systems faster, saving time and money across the software development process.

  3. Java:

    Java is a universal programming language that comes with a plethora of tools and frameworks that are also used in back-end development, such as Spring.

    An old favorite, back end Java development is highly scalable and speeds up the development of web applications, as well as offering a strong foundation for clean, optimized code.

    Businesses benefit from its tremendous scope. Java can be used to develop web and mobile apps of every shape and size.

  • Cloud development

More and more businesses are switching from on-premise software development to a cloud-based model and enjoying its advantages.

Cloud computing allows teams to develop, deploy and scale applications at speed and incorporate work from multiple teams simultaneously.

This model cuts costs, maximizes performance and improves scalability, because businesses can increase their cloud capacity, without having to buy more hardware.

Options include:

  1. Microsoft Azure:

    Azure is one of the world’s leading cloud providers. It incorporates hundreds of services that enable developers to implement solutions such as data storage, email and more, in a manner that is highly flexible and scalable.

    It is also quick to adopt cutting-edge tech, such as Blockchain, offering software development teams the tools to implement private Blockchain solutions at speed.

  2. Amazon Web Services (AWS):

    More than a million people use AWS in almost every country on earth, mostly because AWS is designed to be straightforward, versatile and extremely dependable, as well as secure, with strong safeguarding against disruptions.

    Other benefits include the fact this framework is cost-effective, innovative and comprehensive. It is also adaptive, with auto-scaling that adjusts to requirements.

  • Blockchain development

Blockchain is a record of transactions, typically described as a ledger, that can be accessed by anyone, simultaneously, with each new record converted into a ‘block’ that carries its own unique identifier.

This helps in the verification and tracing of multi-step transactions and, in terms of software development, blockchain offers safer transactions, cuts compliance costs and increases the efficiency of data transfer processing.

One common use of blockchain development is in online voting platforms, for example.
