What are Enterprise Applications?
Apps have helped businesses and start-ups to expand their business digitally in ways that would not have been possible on ground. One such application that is designed specifically for businesses is an enterprise application. What is an enterprise application? It is an application that a business would use to help solve enterprise problems. It usually refers to a software platform that is too large and too complex for individual or small businesses.
They are typically designed to integrate with other enterprise applications within the organisation. They can be deployed across a variety of networks and meet the strict requirements for security and administration management.
There are various types of enterprise applications. They are:
- Proprietary enterprise applications: Usually designed and deployed in-house by a specialised IT team. The company might employ an outside team to design the app but bring it back to deploy it.
Application Service Providers (ASP): This enterprise application is designed by a third-party application service provider and leased to the enterprise.
- Enterprise applications are moving over to cloud computing, where the entire infrastructure is moved to the cloud, which is a type of internet based computing. Here, the services are delivered to the organizations through the Internet as an on-demand service.
Technology has improved our lives in every way. But it often becomes a bane rather than a boon because of the overproduction of options for us to choose from. Consumption increases, stability of the product decreases and its life cycle is half of what it was a decade ago. Amidst this technological boom, we bring to you stories of three companies for whom we developed custom enterprise application.
#1 We worked with this India-based auto component manufacturer company. They have their presence in three business sectors: Automotive Technology, Industrial Technology and Consumer Goods and Building Technology.
- We developed a work-permit application which is basically a workflow management application for permit approval and status tracking. This application will help the company to apply, approve, reject and respond to permits. It also enables various users to have access to the application and based on this, access to the data is managed. It’s equipped with the ability to submit requests from the field, in real time.
- Every permit may need some additional information which can be added dynamically. The forms having different fields are generated dynamically based on the request type. To make it more accessible, we build the app in cross platform, which means the creation of software applications that are compatible with multiple mobile operating systems.
#2 Another company that we built a ticketing application for is a software defined networking services company which is headquartered in Plano, Texas.
- This application allows a user to submit a ticket, update it (make any changes that they might want to incorporate later) and view the status of the ticket, much like any order you place on an e-commerce application.
- The backend integration was SAP implemented in backend and developed in a native iOS and Android code.
#3 The last application that we are going to be focusing on is a metering solutions company. For this company, we built an app which was well-equipped to effectively provide real-time data from the field.
- It allows you to plan the most optimum route for the field worker based on the appointments that they have and show that route on the map. On the basis of the various kinds of data collected, the forms will be generated dynamically.
- The user is able to record data (text and image) offline and submitted to the server in background. The user can also easily add and view the appointments that they have for the day.
