  5. 5. Delphi - The Pioneer in Innovative ComputerSoftwareDelphi is the name that strikes first whenever a debate is maderegarding software and software developmental growth within thesoftware industry. It has made a significant impact on theoverall software services be it software development or basicweb application development. The reason for Delphi to be aleader in the industry is that it makes software that is userfriendly and is not very sophisticated, yet the applicationsthey make are among the best in the industry. The applicationswhich they develop are easily compatible to almost any type ofsoftware. Unlike other software’s which tend to occupy most ofthe memory space and reduce the speed of performance, theapplications developed by Delphi never alters the speed ofperformance of the systems.The development of software has taken a drastic change in thelast decade as people became more and more conversant with theusage of computers. People started to know the importance ofcomputers and started to depend more on computers and computerapplications. With the passage of time computers caught astronghold in almost all aspects of life thereby increasing therequirement of software. In order to fulfill this requirementmany IT companies started to scout for place where the cost oflabor was cheap and without any conditions. And that’s howDelphi development outsourcing took place in India.As India was a fast emerging hub for all IT related activitiesand the cost labor was less and that too without compromising onthe quality in software development. Thereby making it the mosthappening place in the IT world and Delphi harvested the mostand is still yielding good results in the field of softwaredevelopment. 5
  6. 6. In the present world scenario where almost all types ofindustries had taken a beating in not only profits but alsodevelopmental work due to so many economic reasons. But stillthis brand worked its way through with only minimal hurdles andthat’s because of the firm grip which it had in the softwaredevelopment arena and with its roots firmly fixed and focused in acustomer friendly environment.This well known brand played a major role not only in applicationdevelopment but also in various other fields like Applicationconversions; Database Applications, Statistical software’s and it alsoensured specialized training. Delphi is also instrumental inpublishing software related books which cover a wide range of topicswhich are user friendly. Delphi’s powerful language and highlyefficient compilers help is giving the developer a strong support whencustomizing it with Windows platform.It has a dedicated team of members who try to keep in pace with therequirements with of the customers throughout the world and no matterthe place from which the team member responds but still the result output will always remain he same, such is the expertise of this companyin this field. Delphi is a company which has been a world leader forthe last many years and will stay on the top for many years to come. 6
  7. 7. The Shift in Mobile Apps DevelopmentAre the days of App Stores Numbered? Certainly that’s what theexperts believe if we go by web-giants like Google. According toa leading online mobile app store, GetJar, coming years will seea gradual fall in the developer community as the world of Appswill be as huge as the internet. However what might keep thedevelopers carefree at this moment is the hypothetical time-lineof ten years, suggested by CEO of GetJar, which might takebefore it begins to fall. Where the numbers are still rising inthe App world, what might begin to vary is the nature ofapplications developed, that will incline to get more personaland practical as believed by Symbian Foundation.The spark set by Apple’s App store couple of years ago is stillflaming high, with download figures notching above 1.5 billionby end of 2009. The storming popularity of Apple’s App storeamong users and developers even took Apple by surprise. Themove, believed to be a ‘one time hit’ by many, is now turnedinto a race among the top mobile giants like Apple’s iPhone,Blackberry, Google’s Android and the world’s largest mobilephone business, Nokia.Thus it is wise to say, that the variation in sales andpopularity experienced by application developers like Playfish,is perhaps not ideal to suggest a downfall of the developercommunity but an indication of rapidly changing interests andtrend among the users of such applications.The recent years have witnessed a shift in the way thatbusinesses across the globe have begun to view and analyzemobile applications as an add-on to promote their growth in themarket. The introduction and availability of high-speed mobiledata networks, like EDGE and 3G,in the developed world has 7
  8. 8. further supplemented this ideology and has pushed a demand for aplatform shift from personal computers to hand-held mobiledevices. This is also provoked by the users’ need to accessreal-time information on the move as the falling prices ofmobile devices have made it more affordable for larger chunks tobuy and use these services. In the contemporary world ofcommunication, today it’s not just the professionals’, but thegeneral mobile users’, need to access the internet via mobilephones. Companies offering services like recruitment,travelling, real-estate, leisure, entertainment et. al., haveshown urgency in integrating web-portals to mobile basedapplications. The ask is so high that in the recent few yearsthe number of companies offering mobile application developmenthave almost grown three times.Where this has increased the level of competition betweendevelopers, it has exposed companies to the risk of partneringwith outsourcing-services providers with lack of experience andexpertise. Due to this many IT companies in the west have burnttheir hands to bad outsourcing service providers. This had agreat impact on the way companies begin to perceive outsourcingand started questioning the benefits gained through it,resulting in strong hesitancy to outsource work or changingtheir policies to curtail it.Perhaps that explains why many outsourcing companies in recentyears have either shut-down or fighting to survive in thebusiness. However, this does not incline us to believe thatoutsourcing is a bad practice or is ineffective in drawing outbenefits identified with it. As a suggestion, IT companies canonly be more careful and measured in picking up outsourcingpartners to avoid bad experiences.Among thousands of outsourcing service providers, OTS Solutions,a Microsoft certified partner, is one company that has continuedto progress and impress its clients even through the testingtimes for outsourcing industry. Having served the IT industrysince last ten years by developing IT solutions in technologieslike .NET, ASP, Java, Delphi, PHP and others, OTS Solutions has 8
  9. 9. been involved in iPhone and Android applicationdevelopment since its emergence and now it constitutes one ofits core competences in the mobile development area.With the growing infrastructure and empowerment of a mobileuser, the business of mobile application development willcontinue to grow but with a noticeable difference that theimmediate market for developers has begin to shift from ageneral mobile user, who once directly downloaded applicationfrom web based App stores, to companies that offer professionalservices to mobile users. Applications developed for mobilephones have begin to shape more specific and practical ratherthan general, how they were built until recently. Thus the daysof App stores available on the internet might be numbered butthe future of mobile application development is bright and willcontinue to surprise the users with more innovative andpurposeful applications.Why opt for Android application developmentWith more and more users buying Android-based smart phones allover the world, it’s no wonder that professionals adept inAndroid development are in high demand. In fact, the Androidmobile phone market, according to some research data, is growingsteadily every month at a remarkable rate of 32 per cent, thanksto the release of new handsets every now and then. Thepopularity of the MotoBLUR, Motorola Droid, and some HTC models,along with the operating system’s open-source nature, isbelieved to play a key role in the growing enthusiasm forAndroid application development.If you are still wondering how Android development can help,here are some of the advantages of an Android platform, whichare sure to lure you: 9
  10. 10.  Sending and/or receiving data across varied mobile networks using Bluetooth, EDGE, GSM, CDMA, Wi-Fi, UMTS and EV-DO technologies  Google Talk usage for Peer-to-peer (P2P) networking  Libraries with an extensive range for video, audio and image files  Data storage made easy with SQLite  For 3D and 2D graphics, availability of all-inclusive libraries  IPC (Interprocess communication) message passing  Features of Touchscreen, Video camera, accelerometer, magnetometer and GPS  Exporting and signing an app for publishingFrom a business perspective, an Android platform can beextremely beneficial. To begin with, you won’t need costly toolsfor Android development or pay steep licensing fees. Yourprimary costs will usually include your expenditure on thesethree categories:  Expertise for development and testing  Devices for development and testing  Royalty fees, in case you want to use third party app stores for distributionWith an open source OS, Androids are royalty free and licensefree, which makes them quite compelling for wireless operatorsand handset manufacturers. What’s more, unlike other mobileplatforms, you can distribute Android applications in a varietyof ways. To begin with, you can sell them via 3rd party stores.Otherwise, you may also set up an exclusive network throughwhich you can promote the sales of such applications that havebeen developed. Unlike a monopoly market, the market for Andriodapps is quite open, which makes it easy to monetize the appsonce you have developed them. 10
  11. 11. The Android platform also allows you easy integration and crosspromoted of various applications.
