Connections in the App Economy: Love
Advances in technology have forever changed how people work, live—and love.
Advances in technology have forever changed how people work, live—and love. Technology makes finding like-minded people easier than ever, but that doesn't always guarantee a true connection. Connections between people often happen by chance, even in the digital era.
Build Connections with APIs
With volumes of end users and customers tapping into apps and expecting excellent performance with each click, companies today must stay current with the coolest features and the most up-to-date technologies. For instance, a social media app could offer its users to turn on location services to find friends—or potential love—in the area. And those services might help the forgetful partner find the flower shop racing along the way to a romantic rendezvous with smartphone in hand.
The behind-the-scenes work being done by APIs that are both managed and secured allow these connections to occur without incident. Businesses today realize the power of connecting technologies with partners, customers and even in some cases competitors—all in the name of providing the ultimate end user experience on their app.
Agile at Heart
Any smartphone owner sees how often apps installed on their device suggest updates. What they don’t see are agile teams spinning out code to deliver the latest and greatest revisions of apps without skipping a beat with customers. The coordination needed to create high-quality apps with speed, agility and reliability often happens thanks to DevOps, one of the most critical connections in the app economy.
DevOps marries the application developers who create code with the IT operations professionals who ensure the code runs perfectly in the production environment and out to all end users, on desktops, laptops, smartphones and tablets.
It’s all about connections in the app economy. Technology brings ideas to life for many businesses, and businesses deliver software that makes it easier for people to truly connect during their busy lives.
