SPG have been putting together powerful web-based solutions since the early 2000s. From web portals, enterprise search and data aggregation systems to APIs and SaaS development, BigData and reporting applications — we are able to take care of any pressing company demands that you might have along your digital transformation journey.
We are strong believers in the effectiveness of a full-stack approach to development. So while some of our developers may be more proficient in certain areas of your project than others, they are still all perfectly capable of handling every aspect of the software architecture. Above all, this means that unlike other companies, our teams are never paralysed by the absence of a single developer.
Our company’s diverse array of technical skills and accumulated knowledge allow us to support our clients in a variety of different areas and across the technological spectrum. After all, as a company that has followed closely the rise and fall of various frameworks and technologies (Ruby, Groovy, Angular and ASP.net to name a few), we believe we can make extraordinary contributors to virtually any legacy project. In fact, over the years, we have supported a slew of migration initiatives, and revamped and modernised an assortment of bespoke applications which were the backbone of business operations.
Software Planet Group are strong advocates of the Single-Page Application (or SPA) mode. As the name implies, this means that our software solutions have all the data loaded onto the same page, so instead of resorting to servers to display any further information, your customers will be able to go smoothly about their work without the hassle of unnecessary interruptions.
Likewise, when it comes to under-the-bonnet improvements, SPG are more than happy to help. The following backend technologies are employed by our developers with prowess:
Java has been the go-to technology for the enterprise for a number of years, yet this is hardly its only strength. After all, it includes some fantastic libraries, a solid infrastructure and is also incredibly stable.
Though the peak of Rails popularity is now well behind us, today, Ruby on Rails can empower businesses to spend a lot less time in production, so it remains an excellent option for quickly building an MVP.
Like Java, Python also has a long-established presence in the software development community, but the language is undergoing a major revival, as today it is the principal technology for machine learning and data analysis applications.
Though in the past, the .NET framework was only exclusively available for Windows, not only is its successor both free and open-source, but it supports all three major platforms. As a result, today, .NET Core is an exceptional and valid alternative.
If you are looking to host on the cloud, Software Planet Group’s full-stack developers are well acquainted with Platform as a Service (PaaS) systems. In this realm, though it is true that Amazon has established for itself a certain monopoly, both Google Cloud and Microsoft Azure are commendable for their own set of features.
Note, however, that migrating from one platform to another can often be considerably challenging (and it might even be sometimes cheaper to host your apps on a local server).
As a rule of thumb, therefore, it is helpful to bear in mind that the larger your current infrastructure, the likelier you will have to opt for a PaaS solution, as it enables maintaining systems without hassle or excessive complexity.
Whether deploying to a major cloud platform or even to your private server, you have the option to use containers that are useful in a plethora of ways. Our first recommendation would be Docker. At its core, the service allows developers to ship their apps to the production environment packing all their requirements and libraries into a single isolated unit.
Pair this with Kubernetes, and you've got yourself a match made in heaven! Straight out of the box, the container orchestration system enables scaling your architecture with ease. So if you would like to effectively double your current amount of supported users, you can rely on Kubernetes to automatically launch new instances, efficiently set them up for you and connect them to the cluster that will support your software environment.
