I have clients that spent their last year’s festive season with me – well almost - because they were calling me and texting me to get their mobile apps out before January ; their website done and/or getting their software ready for the staff by January 14th. It is hectic to spend the long nights at the office while people are getting ready for fun.  Quite frankly I don’t mind it as long as I get to create that pride and earn myself a reason to celebrate.

Just before I start writing this blog I pulled a list of the development projects we did last year during this time up to December 20th. . I went to the websites, ecommerce web portals, desktop applications  and mobile apps; and check them one by one.

It got me thinking these clients of ours they probably could have used the money for a nice holiday somewhere and enjoyed themselves.  They would have nice photos and good memories but that is about it.  

Don’t get me wrong after a hectic year of up and down, one needs to rewind and it is very important, it’s not like you are wasting your money however with the current economic situations and the need to catch up with technology one also needs to guarantee the future of his/her business.

So dear reader here is my 3 things i think is worth setting a budget before you go to your holiday to secure future of your business.

Birth of your Idea: Mobile app? Website? ecommerce?

 One client said to me “Look this is an idea I have been caring for very long time and I am going to use the money for my extended holiday  so don’t mess it up …”.

It is true there is that idea that you want to implement and every time you see someone with similar idea you kick yourself and punch your face. You even talk about it to your friends how you have everything figured out but never get to do it. Believe me I have fair share of my own in that regard. You only realize how valuable your idea is when you see it implemented by someone else.

Especially those who want to implement mobile app or get a web site, ecommerce site or a software to automate your business operations, it is not as expensive as it looks and complicated as it feels.

Is it possible to see the festive season as the birth of your idea that is going to fund all the future festive seasons?  Or is it too much to ask?  

Go to where your customers stay, play and pay Transforming your business

The market have moved, it is out there in the clouds and people are adapting to the ‘new world order’. Some just check your website and mobile apps before calling you or before they spend petrol money and time to come to you. Some,  they do their business online, they order and pay online.  Others they need more than just the list of you services and products, they want the reviews and comments about your business online. What do people say about you? What is your digital presence and foot print?

I would say this is something you can’t afford to lose. The festive season is the right time to include that mobile app you always wanted for your business, or upgrade your website so that it matches the quality services you provide, add payment gateways to your portal, optimize your website so that it can rank in search engines or get it to be mobile friendly so that people can visit you from their mobile devices.   

Find a good technology partner tell them to sweat it while you are away and implement it fresh from the oven and wow your customers. If you don't have a website get one now, if it is not responsive (mobile friendly ) get it to play well with the mobile world. if you have basic website and is not making you money now is the time to get it up and running so that you can play with your peers.

With the advancement of mobile development and mobile apps the word android has become synonymous with android phones and mobile apps phones and tablets. It all begin with the operating system android released by Google developed for touch screen mobile devices. This being for smart phones and tablets, Google didn’t really stop there they developed Android TV ( televisions) , Android Auto ( cars), Android Wear ( wearables) and many other variants for devices and applications with a specialized user interface such as cameras, notebooks and game and specialize devices. Android was unveiled in 2007 and the first android based mobile device was released to market in 2008 with android as an operating system. Now android as an operating system taken over the market of mobile devices ranging from smart phones to specialized mobile devices. At the core of android principle is what we call direct manipulation of user interface where by user can interact with what they see on the screen by touch, gesture and swiping, pinching, expanding, tapping etc . These touch inputs have made the interaction of users very close to real live actions and brought the usability and initiative interface a higher level.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a term that encompasses all internet-enabled sensors and devices connected to a network. While IoT referred to as little as RFID chips in the early 2000s, the concept has significantly evolved in the recent years and is now on its way to revolutionizing the businesses of today. A smartphone with an IoT mobile app is a simple example of an IoT application and we can see how ubiquitous it has become in society today. Now, there is an entire range of small and low-cost devices under development that will help automate a number of data sensitive business tasks over the Internet.

Running a business, among other things, involves setting up business workflows, operations and processes, tasks and procedures which we refer to as business system.  Your business system is expected to be clearly defined, stable and well understood by the whole team, customers and other stockholders. Moreover, More often than not, the difference between a successful and failed business could simply be attributed to few key aspects of running a business assuming that the business case is healthy such as business efficiency, business intelligence and quality of the response to the market.  Today I would like to discuss the efficiency component which is directly relevant to my experience and field of work.
