What MWCA 2018 will Have Beyond Mobile Phones

Gearing Up For MWC Americas

Mobility Solutions at Mobile World Congress, Los Angeles

The technology partners at MWC Americas will bring forth their best innovations- in terms of the most pressing, industry-specific challenges they aim to solve with their mobility solutions. Businesses that want to leverage technology, but aren’t sure of the what and the how will be able to capitalize on IT consultancy at MWC Americas 2018.

For others, it is a way to hire onsite resources from the best pool of web and mobile app development companies and developers. No matter what their agenda, businesses from all walks are expected to attend MWC Americas 2018 this year between September 12-14.

However, there’s something else about Mobile World Congress America- the fact that it is not just about mobile phones! Wearables are a hit at this mobility conference where developers and mobile app development companies gather from all around the world to check the hot and new in the wearables space.

Wearables Tech at MWC Americas 2018

Several tech tours packed into the schedule for Mobile World Congress Americas 2018 tell us a tale. Emerging Tech Tours this year will guide the attendees through the developments in new tech across all mobility devices, including wearables.

Businesses can find out which technologies are ruling their industry and get a headstart in leveraging them. Emerging technologies are occupying a lot of space in all businesses and it pays off to learn which ones are under testing, which ones have hit the markets, and which are yet to be innovated.

Plan investment of your resources strategically by getting to learn firsthand which technologies are rapidly shaping the mobility landscape of tomorrow. Wearables are a great place to start when businesses think about getting digitally transformed on the inside.

Enterprises now consider wearable devices a part of their workforce’s uniform. This is especially true for the organizations that have to keep track of a mobile and remote workforce. Integrating wearables into the daily operations of an enterprise is a sure shot way of ramping up processes and making operations more efficient.

Innovations and strides in the wearable tech space will be frequently seen at the Mobile World Congress Americas this year.

To touch upon the subject of the use of wearables in the digital marketing space, MWC Americas has an event lined up to discuss the latest trends in digital marketing. Some of the leading companies around the world will showcase their tools and services to give you an idea of the next gen of digital marketing. So to say, wearables happen to be a part of this event too, apart from other technologies such as VR, AR, or AI.

Connected Car Tech at GSMA MWC Americas

The realm of connected cars is not in the future anymore, but very much in front of us. This may have been the reason why connected cars have found a spot in this year’s finest mobile industry event in Los Angeles. The SDL connected car conference by FordDev will take place on the opening day of the event.

Businesses wanting to become a part of the connected cars space can attend the conference and learn more about the exciting opportunities in this arena. Automakers can learn about monetizing car connectivity and bringing mobile apps closer to millions of drivers around the world. The event will also highlight the importance of privacy and security in this increasingly open world.

Attendees can bring in their ideas for a connected app to the hackathon and compete with peers for great prizes and an opportunity to get their SDL-enabled app accessible to millions of vehicles all around the globe.

Huge players have made immense success connecting cars and their drivers to each other through mobility solutions. Even so, there is a lot of scope in this space, waiting to be unleashed.

Connected cars point us towards a not-so-different kind of mobility solutions than what we were originally expecting to see at the MWCA Los Angeles this year.

Mobility Solutions for Smart Cities at MWC Americas 2018

Investments in developing smart cities are not only adding to the overall efficiency of government operations and citizens’ lives but also making processes sustainable. This is the idea behind the Sustainable Smart Cities Tour on the opening day of MWCA 2018. Overall connectivity in any city improves its productivity and opens up a window of opportunities to solve challenges and build solutions.

But, the forward-thinking leaders of today want to leverage mobility to add sustainability to their smart cities. This concept of a smart city touches base on the three key areas of development- People, Planet, and Profits. From overhauling the transportation systems to reimagining waste disposal, there is nothing that cannot be achieved with the strategic addition of mobility devices and solutions to a smart city plan.

In this regard, smart cities is another area for the applications of mobility solutions that will go beyond the idea of mobile phones.

Selecting The Best App Development Agency- The Wheat And The Chaff

Thursday, April 12th, 2018

Choosing the best app development company for your software solutions needs is no cakewalk. The process often seems slow and tiring with the scores of companies thriving and springing up in the IT industry. When a business wants to launch an application successfully, picking up the best app developers for custom software development is the most crucial step.

You need an app development agency that will convert your idea into a reality. Most businesses look for references and ask their peers about their reviews for various IT software development apps, but that is just the traditional way to go about it.

how-to-select-app-development-company

What you need is a much more comprehensive manner of analysing various parameters that go into making any software development company the best from the rest. Here are some tips that should help you make the right choice faster-

Searching via professional network – If you have a great network of professionals who may help you find the best app development company, ask them! As the rule of thumb, the best app developers are hard to find, but the task can be made easier when you look through your professional contacts and inform them about your needs, asking for references.

Digging Social Media– It is imperative that you check the social media presence of all the companies you consider partnering with for your app development needs. The best companies with have a consistent presence across social media platforms, and you will be able to narrow down your options further.

Google – The findings of the search engine are enough to tell you about any app development company you may have shortlisted. Look for a complete Google profile as the first measure of the authenticity and the sincerity of the company. Next, the reviews on Google don’t lie. You will get to know what the company’s clients, employees, etc., say and think about it.

Completed Projects – This is the most basic and foundation measure of any custom software development company. You can get to know about the past projects the agency has successfully delivered, the areas of IT software development that the agency spans, and their testimonials.

Relevant experience – While the list of projects any software development company has completed over its years will let you know the breadth of their services, looking into a specific experience will give you an idea about the depth of its services. It makes sense to ask how many E-commerce websites or mobile apps, and with what functionalities any organisation has developed and delivered if you are looking for similar services.

The team – An organisation is nothing but the employees who synergize their experiences and skills to deliver services. Look at the profiles and the expertise of the team members if you want to know what an organisation is capable of delivering. While the quantity doesn’t matter much, the quality of the members should be top-notch for the company to be excellent at what it does.

Money and Time< – If you really want to partner with the best app development company, you need to understand it is not going to be cheap. The best app developers know they are best, and you need to pay them the best prices. However, when the duration of the project is considered, it depends on your requirements and any company who is unable to strategize and plan and give you a deadline should be neglected.

Maintenance and Support – These two services are really the ones that matter after all of the above is checked and confirmed. The software development agencies that provide quick support and maintenance services are the ones that are reliable and trustworthy. Often, apps need minor fixes and up-gradations after they have been delivered. To get these tweaks done by the experts, you need a long-term association with the right company which is committed to offering value to its clients.

Internationally Acclaimed and Celebrated App Development Agency India

Another standout factor that truly differentiates companies is whether they are global or have not yet made it to the international picture. CDN Solutions Group is one app development company that satisfies all of the above criteria, while also being a regular to international events.

We are a part of all major industry-leading events and conferences, and this is where we find the motivation to work hard and deliver consistent value in the IT industry. We are an app development company that looks for innovation and experimentation.

Confirming this notion about us is the fact that we are joining industry leaders and experts at CeBIT Australia 2018. The week-long event will house some of the best business technology leaders from, literally, around the world. We are one of the companies exhibiting at CeBIT Aus 2018 with our expertise and experience.

Airbnb For Food – Social Dining Experiences In Strange Lands

Monday, April 2nd, 2018

Eat With Strangers Apps (EWSAs) – The Origin

Now termed more informally as “Airbnb For Food”, the EWSAs were invented around the 2010s when some businesses did not want their tourists to sit in bars away from the authentic culinary experience of their land and wanted to help the novice or wannabe chefs to monetize their hobbies from the comfort of their homes.

With this concept in mind, Airbnb For Food apps aim to bridge the gap between good cooks and tourists looking for authentic culinary experiences in their travel places. The companies that develop and deploy these apps usually earn a share from the chefs’ every event or gain a lump sum sign up amount from them.

Hereafter, the chefs can create dining experiences for the tourists and travelers, who, in turn, can join complete strangers over dinner to learn about the local cuisines, taste some of it, and make friends in a strange land.

The Standout Features Of Airbnb For Food Applications

Most Eat With Strangers Apps have these features in common-

An event creation functionality – The locals who love to try their hands at cooking and are confident of their meals, create brunch, lunch, or dinner events to host the tourists and travelers in their locality.
An event search functionality – The tourists and travelers can search for the events of their choice by looking at a large variety of events being hosted by the locals in their travel destinations.
A filter functionality – Travelers can filter the events according to their preferences to narrow down their options and select their choice faster and better.
Rating and Reviews – The travelers are encouraged to review and rate their experiences on the profiles of their hosts, thus creating a community of food lovers and helping other travelers pick the highest rated hosts for their dining purposes.
Price setting and Payments functionality – Most of the EWSAs keep the pricing decision inclusive of their commissions, if any, and integrate a payment gateway for seamless payments to the host of the event.
The terms of hosting – The hosts get to set the terms of their hosting such as the minimum number of guests, whether or not the guests are allowed to smoke, the dress codes, the menu options, etc.

 

Airbnb For Food applications are growing in popularity as an increasing number of visitors want to enjoy authentic local experiences while they are exploring remote parts of the world. At times, the dining experiences end up in cooking lessons and market strolling- all because of the inclusive amicable community EWSAs build.

Airbnb For Food Applications – The Challenges Down The Road

These apps face some pertinent challenges. First, they need to look out for numerous chefs to join their platform. Without crossing a threshold of available options for visitors in a city, an Airbnb For Food app cannot pick up.

Just like in any other industry, customers like to have options, and the only way to give them that is through increasing the number of chefs and cooks on the platform to host events.

Second, there need to be enough attendees so that hosts can earn a decent amount from their events. This is a recurring problem that many people have complained about after using EWSAs. The hosts are compelled to cancel their event when their minimum guest numbers are not met. Getting enough customers for the hosts is the second challenge for Airbnb For Food apps.

When these two setbacks are catered to, the disruption in the Food and Restaurant industry will be no less impactful than the similar industry disruptions caused by Airbnb and Uber, for example.

CDN Solutions Group’ Airbnb For Food Application Development Services

At CDN Solutions Group, when it comes to experimenting and innovating with the latest technologies and trends, we are second to none. We have developed a ground-shattering Airbnb For Food application for one of our offshore clients in Australia.

While we integrated all the standout features that a standard EWSA should have, here are some salient characteristics of our project that is successfully delivered and deployed-

A Host App – To make the matters simple and leave out the intricacies, we developed a separate host app for the local people who want to host people at their residences over dinners and lunches. The host app enables the local person to describe their event, mention the timings, the event date, the minimum guest requirements, gender specifications of their guests, and their social interests. The app also allows the host to either enable all of his guests to instantly book a slot at their event, or go through a screening process after which the host can approve the booking of their guests.
A Guest App – The guest app allows the visitors to view the local events on an integrated map, gives them a wrap up of their viewed events and recommends dining experiences to them based on their previous searches and interests. Apart from this, the app enables the travelers to view the details of the events that the host entered and check their ratings and reviews to decide the one that’s best for them.
Food Take Aways – Our application also allows travelers to take away wrapped and packed food to their places when they don’t want to socialize. This functionality eliminates the necessity for a traveler to be social when they only want to enjoy locally prepared cuisines in the comfort of their homes.

Our developers worked on the following technologies to develop and design the website and the apps for our overseas customer-

iOS app development with Objective C in iOS SDK, and Xcode.
Android app development with Java for the native development using the Android SDK.
Website development with PHP CodeIgnitor for CMS, NodeJS, and Socket.IO.

CDN Solutions Group has the capacity, the capabilities, and the proficiency in handling new technologies and trends adeptly.

Your Ultimate Guide To Decentralized Blockchain Application Development

Wednesday, March 21st, 2018

Blockchain Rises To Power

Blockchain has been promoted from an esoteric hushed technology name to a mainstream technology used in applications and solutions for financial institutions, multi-national corporations, governments, and other industries. With this rapid turn of events, a major chunk of which took place in 2017, this year seems to be the determining and ripening year for the technology.

Bitcoin was the first decentralized currency to gain global attention, and the technology behind it, Blockchain, was first viewed as a decentralized ledger technology that could be used only in the financial services domain. As time went by, Blockchain gained momentum and businesses in all other industries started searching for ways to implement it in their sector.

With this, there is a rising demand for decentralized blockchain application development companies to innovate and experiment in the ways the technology can be leveraged across industries.

A Decentralized Application? What Could That Be?

Decentralized Applications or DApps can be characterized by the following features-

Open-Source – The application’s source code is freely available to all.
Decentralized – The underlying database of these applications is similar to Blockchain, that is, a cryptographic technology.
Incentive – The application has cryptocurrencies and tokens, either of its own or the currently available ones that fuel its operations.
Always available – Since these applications are decentralized, they are not owned by anyone. Furthermore, these applications cannot be shut down by anyone.

When these features, and all of them, are a part of any application, the app can rightly be called a DApp.

Is Decentralized Different From Distributed?

When we talk about Distributed apps, these are the software solutions that have their computation spread across a number of nodes. However, decentralized points to the absence of a central authority in a software solution. This means that no node, in particular, tells the other one what or what not to do.

centralized-decentralized-distributed

In such a case, if one of the nodes fail, the system experiences no failure overall. Bitcoin is a system that is distributed as well as decentralized. It is distributed because of the Blockchain technology that is present on multiple nodes worldwide, and it is decentralized as there is no single authority that governs the system.

Diving Into Decentralized Blockchain App Development

Before we jump into the nitty-gritty of decentralized apps, take note that Blockchain is simply a type of database that is decentralized, massive, and secure. And, while the Blockchain enthusiasts have grown in number, there is a lack of expert decentralized app developers, and there is room for everyone.

There are three approaches to develop decentralized apps.

1. Platform or Type I DApps – This software approach suits the first-timers- the developers who are trying their hands at DApps for the first time. This approach allows you to build a new Blockchain token system either from scratch or by forking the existing Blockchains. Bitcoin and Ethereum are the examples of Blockchain Type I DApps. When you have the ability to distinguish yourself in the Blockchain space, and you have a new direction for Blockchain development, this is your software approach of choice.

2. Software or Type II DApps – This is an approach where the pre-existing software platforms are leveraged, which can be Bitcoin, Hyperledger, or Ethereum. This approach to development is suitable when there is a solution that needs to be developed for a specific problem. Since the Blockchain platform you base your solution upon will handle the specifics, you need less technical knowledge to build a software DApp using Type II approach. However, with the benefits of the underlying Blockchain platform, you also get its limitations and bugs, which are quite a few in all Blockchain implementations.

3. Specialized Software or Type III DApps – This is the approach for building a plug-in or a protocol that integrates seamlessly with other Blockchain protocols or apps. These apps are not built on top of a Blockchain but on top of a Blockchain service. When you care less about the Blockchain code and forking it, and you want to build a specialized software, this approach is the best for you. You get the features of the underlying Blockchain technology, and the characteristics of the community project you work on.

With an idea and an implementation in mind, you will be able to select your ideal DApp development approach readily.
