WWF developers specialise in Windows Workflow Foundation (WWF, WF or even WinWF). The programming library has belonged to Microsoft’s .NET technology group since .NET 3.0, and assists in the development of program-controlled and complex workflows.
It makes declarative programming possible, which puts the description of a problem into the forefront. This is in contrast to imperative programming, which focuses on the description of the solution path.
WWF developers build flowcharts through pre-built classes and constructs. The coding orients itself rather towards specific business processes, and makes higher levels of abstraction possible. With the help of WWF technology, .NET developers are provided with an easy-to-understand interface, through which business clients can control other Microsoft products such as SharePoint or Microsoft Dynamics.
Why WWF developers are expensive and hard to find
The Windows Workflow Foundation is generally regarded to be a library that is hard to learn and use. A WWF developer should have good .NET programming expertise as well as in-depth knowledge in the field of process control, which is why many WWF developers come from the field of business informatics. WWF’s relatively complicated learning curve and technical difficulties due to the non-error free implementation of the library can make working with it somewhat challenging./p>
Despite this, WWF is still used in many companies in order to keep a project’s complexity under control. Rather than continuing to bloat up something with additional code software, WFF solves problems by describing workflows. This relieves developer teams and allows functions to be implemented. An accomplished WWF developer will often be able to offer significantly faster solutions in close cooperation with colleagues from different areas. Traditional software developers will usually require more time.
WWF software benefits from its good scalability. Because the process logic is based on input-output models, only those programme components which are relevant to the current process trace point must remain in the memory. However, WWF programs are a higher complexity for the developer. Unlike in other programs, the code itself does not offer a clear schedule that can be chronologically analysed and understood, and even just troubleshooting is difficult. A WFF program may work correctly technically, but still produce incorrect output if mistakes have been made in the process logic in the flow charts.
WWF developers as Outsourcing professionals
WWF developers can quickly realise specific problem solutions for contract work. Companies that consistently rely on .NET technology can save on costs by Outsourcing these types of activities. Because WWF developers can be quite expensive in Europe due to their hard-to-find status, it can be particularly worthwhile to take a look at India.
In India you can find specialist workers for all technologies and programming techniques, and this is also true for Windows Workflow Foundation. These Indian expert rates are just a fraction of their European counterparts. This is one of the main reasons for the boom in Outsourcing to India, in addition to the high availability of IT employees. India already covers more than 55% of the global IT Outsourcing market, and this percentage is still rising.
If you are interested in a WWF developer from India, we at Outsourcing4work can help you further. We are specialised in the procurement of expert software developers for European clients, and have many years of experience in this area.
We also support our clients during the project phase with our own Scrum project managers. This allows use to ensure that all processes run smoothly, even across distance. We can easily circumnavigate any difficulties that arise during virtual cooperation and cultural differences. Depending on your needs, you can hire an Indian WWF developer on an hourly basis, or for a fixed price. Long-term contracts with attractive conditions are also possible for recurring work. We will take over the contract and payment of the Indian developers for you as a European company. This will make your job easier.
In the model field, MVC developers store all the necessary data for the application, such as user profiles, images, videos, comments or statistics.
The view field describes the user interface and is kept strictly separate from the data. In it, you will find all style elements such as buttons, distances, elements, fonts etc. described exactly. The Document Object Model (DOM), an interface specification for access to HTML or XML documents, is of particular importance.
In the controller view, you will find all functional, interactive elements – browser events such as clicks, touch gestures, drag and drop and so on.
MVC developers can develop and improve each of these parts independently from one another, which can mean a lot less work in otherwise complicated web applications.
MVC developers use various MVC frameworks
MVC developers usually work with Backbone.js, Angular.js, EmberJS and KnockoutJS. These are the current most widely-used MVC frameworks. Due to their widespread popularity, they are extremely well documented and all their strengths and weaknesses are known. They all offer a similar range of functions, although individual MVC frameworks are somewhat more complicated to use.
BACKBONE.JS VS. ANGULAR.JS VS. EMBERJS VS. KNOCKOUTJS
Here is a small tip to help make your decision. If you are looking for an MVC developer, you should already know which MVC framework you will be working with.
Backbone.js is a minimalist MVC framework with plugin support and a large selection of extensions. Thanks to its modular approach, Backbone.js can be adjusted to fit different needs. It is used for services like WordPress, Rdio and Hulu, and is very suitable for very complex web applications. The code is easily readable, which makes it simple to further develop existing apps.
Angular.js is used and provided by Google. MVC developers can also create sophisticated web applications with this framework. An HTML compiler is part of Angular.js and lets proprietary domain-specific languages be created. The code is easy to debug. However, it is more complicated to use this framework than other MVC frameworks.
Ember.js is relatively easy and intuitive to use. It is also modular, and is very popular with developers with Ruby on Rails experience. Good results can be achieved relatively quickly with Ember.js. MVC developers who work with this MVC framework will have to forgo extensive testing tools. Since Ember.js’s API can be somewhat instable, this can lead to problems in complex web applications.
KnockoutJS uses the Model View ViewModel approach and differs from other frameworks. It is very well-suited for complex graphical user interfaces with many features. KnockoutJS is also suitable for data-heavy applications with tabular output. Standard procedures such as sorting functions can be realised very quickly. The high compatibility with modern web browsers guarantees unproblematic operation for all users.
Affordable and knowledgeable MVC developers
MVC developers are highly sought after and charge high rates accordingly. This is especially true for web developers who are experienced in several MVC frameworks. These types of professionals are best for new projects because they will be able to be unbiased when choosing the right technology.
Offshore outsourcing will let you save a lot of money during the implementation of a new development project. This is especially true for Indian professionals who cost a fraction of their European counterparts. Outsourcing4work is specialised in the procurement of these Indian IT employees, and we are most often tasked with finding expert web developers.
If you are looking for an MVC developer for a specific project, we are happy to help you further. It does not matter which MVC framework you prefer – we will easily find the right professional for all of the libraries mentioned above. These professionals can be paid on an hourly basis, or at a fixed price for a precisely-defined project.
We also support you with our own Scrum project managers in order to ensure everything runs according to plan. These managers understand the Indian mentality and also know how to coordinate virtual software projects. You also conclude the contract directly with us as a European company. This significantly facilitates many factors, and also provides legal certainty. And we will then take care of the rest, including the payment of the Indian IT experts.
Informix developers set up databases based on popular systems, develop applications and help evaluate information and make it available for data management. Informix is one of the most widely used relational databases, with more than 200,000 installations worldwide. After the Informix company was taken over by IBM in 2001, the technology giant gradually further developed the software and conquered the market with it.
It is also responsible for reselling, supporting and offering tools and solutions for Informix environments for the 5,000 Informix-focussed companies around the world. The user community is also strong with more than 30,000 members, and sees a lively exchange of information.
An Informix developer’s advantages and tasks
In comparison to other database implementations, Informix stands out with its easy management which is also reflected in the staffing level. The optimization and monitoring effort is also considered to be relatively low. Accordingly, admin and developer teams are generally smaller for Informix than for other systems.
Many companies forego hiring an Informix database administrator (DBA) and let another IT employee take over these tasks. Informix developers are therefore more often confronted with Oracle and other solutions with their corresponding tasks than counterparts. However, these efforts can be kept within limit due to the low administration overhead.
Informix benefits from optimized, streamlined data structures for high throughput. Informix developers do not need to worry as much about their work performance limits – such as complex, variable workloads.
The traditional work areas for Informix developers are app development, data management, the integration of solutions from other providers, adaption of automation functions or the targeted used of database extensions, or DataBlades. Other than the somewhat traditional add-ons, in Informix expansions act as an integral part of the underlying databases, and can be used for a range of features depending on the area of application.
In addition to the database software, Informix developers are also required to a have a number of other qualifications. Unix/AIX experience, as well as experience in Microsoft SQL Server, .NET / ASP.NET, HTML and IIS are often required. Proficiency in C or Java is also usually necessary for application development.
Informix developers from India
If you are looking for an Informix developer, you will have a hard time finding a suitable expert that fits your exact requirements. Therefore, many companies like to use all-rounders/ full-stack developers with strong database experience, and invest in Informix-specific training. However, this is expensive and takes time.
Outsourcing to Indian professionals can be a smart alternative. In India there is a huge number of excellent developers from all areas, and there it is much easier to find an Informix professional who has the right mix of knowledge and experience. This can be a decisive advantage, especially if a development project needs to be realised quickly.
In addition, you can save a lot of money with Informix Outsourcing, thanks to the lower average rates in India when compared to Europe. Many companies have recognised this opportunity, and rely on Indian software developers with our help.
At Outsourcing4work we have many years of experience in the procurement of specialised professionals, and have a large reliable partner network. We can also easily assist you in finding an Informix professional. You will benefit greatly from our comprehensive approach.
We provide one of our India-experienced Scrum project managers to our client during the project phase, and they will ensure efficient communication and coordination of work steps during all steps of the project. We know: virtual project management comes with its own challenges which begin with the communication and productivity tools being used. We can even help you with data management over distance, and in a successful coordination with external co-workers from different cultural backgrounds.
Depending on your needs, you can hire an Informix developer on an hourly basis, or negotiate a fixed price project following specific criteria. We are experienced in all aspects of Outsourcing, and will assume responsibility for successful implementation as a European company. We will also take over payment for the Indian Informix developer.
Visual FoxPro developers are primarily used today for migration or to expand existing systems. The RAD programming environment for data-centric applications was originally developed by Fox Software from 1984 onwards, and later by Microsoft after a takeover in 1992. The last official version was released in 2007, and Microsoft discontinued product support at the beginning of 2015.
Visual FoxPro is still popular thanks to its very powerful integrated relational database system, and is still used at many companies. Visual FoxPro developers often take over tasks such as maintaining existing software applications, the further development of software architecture and preparing a technical migration to another platform.
Proprietary applications in the business sector which are developed with Visual FoxPro are often expensive proprietary developments which can only be replaced under considerable financial and human strain. This is often not worthwhile for companies, as the technical functionality of Visual FoxPro applications are still relevant, and you can easily connect to other systems via extensions and interfaces.
Because Visual FoxPro software can cope with built-in databases, as well as with SQL databases (thanks to ODBC and ADO), there is still enough flexibility for the foreseeable future. And Visual FoxPro developer still have many more extensions available to use.
Visual FoxPro developers in Europe
The developer community in Europe is still very active because individual solutions are developed and maintained by various companies. A yearly developer conference still takes place which combines .NET and Xbase++ professionals with Visual FoxPro experts.
You will also still find sufficient Visual FoxPro developers, although the market has thinned out a bit over the last few years. The next generation is lacking, and many young developers are relying mainly on extensive .NET experience. Pure Visual FoxPro developers are now very rare, because those remaining are undergoing further training – especially in .NET.
Their salaries are therefore correspondingly high. Visual FoxPro developers are mostly senior and usually have considerable experience. It can therefore be costly to replace retiring Visual FoxPro developers or to strengthen an existing team.
Outsourcing by Visual FoxPro developers in India
Fortunately for companies, there are many good Outsourcing options nowadays for IT projects. The internet boom over the last twenty has brought even distant countries such as China and India into the game. While earlier local branches were necessary in order to profit from offshore Outsourcing, there are now a large number of possibilities for digital collaboration over distance. And decentralised developer teams are also becoming more common in Europe. Indian IT professionals are therefore an affordable option for the skills shortage in Europe – such as for Visual FoxPro.
Indian developers enjoy a good reputation, even if there are a few cultural differences between the countries. The country has a population in the billions, and its focus on IT means that it can offer high-calibre professionals for rare technologies in large numbers. The question is more how to find a matching profile, and not if one exists.
This is where Outsourcing4work and its India-expertise comes into play. We can procure excellent Visual FoxPro developers and professionals from other areas as Outsourcing employees for you. Thanks to the lower wages in India, you can save significantly on costs. With a comprehensive approach that includes a Scrum project manager at the ready, you will always be on the safe side. We will recruit according to your exact specifications, coordinate the project at a distance, and also take over payment. You just conclude the contract with us as a European company, and we take care of the rest.
Bootstrap developers are relatively hard to find. The free CSS framework which was put onto the market in Twitter in 2011 is still relatively young. Bootstrap was originally used exclusively for Twitter’s internal analysis and management tools in order to reduce maintenance costs. As with many start-ups, Twitter initially used an unorganized collection of different libraries for programming and then unified its coding activities with Bootstrap.
Among Bootstrap’s strengths you will find an existing focus on modern web technologies such as HTML5 and CSS3. In order to get the most out of modern techniques, Bootstrap relies on a progressive improvement as a development approach, in contrast to other frameworks. Thanks to alternative style definitions in the style sheets for various browsers, backwards compatibility without sacrificing advanced techniques is guaranteed. If an older browser does not support a specific functionality, the user is simply shown a display which works for them.
This quickly made Bootstrap into one of the most widely used HTML, CSS and JS frameworks for mobile web applications. In addition to Twitter, Bootstrap is used by a number of renowned providers. NASA, Spotify, Newsweek, Vogue, Fifa.com and the University of Washington are just some of the many well-known names. Bootstrap is often used for creating interactive websites with interesting effects and multimedia elements, as you can probably tell. This makes it a front end framework. Bootstrap is not suitable for back end development or server applications.
The current Bootstrap version is Version 3, which is no longer maintained by the main developers. This should accelerate the development of Bootstrap 4, which is still in the alpha development stage. If you are planning a web project with Bootstrap and are looking for a suitable developer, you should make sure that this developer is well-experienced in Bootstrap 3 and stays up-to-date on Bootstrap 4. It is expected that the developer will place more value on modern techniques instead of backwards compatibility, as has already been shown in Bootstrap Version 2 to Version 3. However, it doesn’t make sense to postpone a project until the release of Bootstrap 4. You can still realise modern and exciting projects with Bootstrap 3.
In comparison to other frameworks such as the PHP area like Zend or Symfony, Bootstrap favours a streamlined approach. Due to the fact that Bootstrap brings numerous pre-made grids, patterns and other CSS and HTML elements which can be used straight away, a web designer can save themselves many hours of coding work. However, one should still learn about other frameworks such as Ulkit, Foundation and HTML5 Boilerplate. Each website project is unique and has its own specific requirements.
Bootstrap developers from India
Outsourcing to Indian IT professionals is a great option in order to realise Bootstrap website projects quickly and affordably. There are many Bootstrap developers located in India, and their rates are a fraction of the cost of their colleagues in Europe.
Since Bootstrap is primarily front end orientated, it is somewhat easier to compare different providers. A look at references and previous Bootstrap projects will quickly reveal what a Bootstrap developer is capable of. Teams of Bootstrap developers and stylish designers are often the best choice.
Outsourcing4work is happy to help you find a Bootstrap developer from India who suits your needs. We are specialised in IT Outsourcing to India and have many years of experience in this field. And because we understand how complex web projects are, we provide you with one of our India-experienced Scrum project managers to stay by your side. They will keep watch over each work step and will ensure smooth communication between you and the Indian partners. You conclude the contract directly with us as a European company. We will also look after the payment of the Indian Bootstrap developers. You will not need to worry about contract security or bureaucratic hurdles with us.
There are many WordPress theme developers, and you can find thousands of both commercial and free themes to create beautiful websites of all types. However, if you are looking for a unique WordPress theme with special features or would like to adapt it to an existing theme package, you will need a suitably qualified developer.
Luckily however, the content management system (CMS) WordPress is very popular; no other CMS is used more often, which you probably already know. But did you know that the market share of WordPress is already over 60%, and that almost a quarter of all internet sites worldwide run on WordPress?
This makes it easy to find a good WordPress developer anywhere in the world – from hobbyists up to professional web design agencies who throw one commercial WordPress theme after another onto the market. It’s a good business, with WordPress commercial templates being sold at a price of thirty to sixty US dollars each.
WordPress theme developers for custom websites
If you would like to have an exclusive WordPress theme developed or customized, it can be very expensive. Fortunately, there are a number of ways to help keep the costs as low as possible. Hiring hobbyists however, is not one of them.
Professional WordPress theme developers usually work in teams and develop a solid basic structure upon which they design the individual themes. The skilful incorporation and licensing of plugins such as Visual Composer or WooCommerce also plays an important role.
Some established WordPress theme developers are also open to contract work and design custom themes following the wishes of the customer. Price expectations are very different, in addition to the services offered.
If you have hardly any experience with WordPress themes, it can be hard to find truly competent partner. Almost every theme looks good on test pages and in screenshots. What lies behind the theme will only become clear once it is implemented.
A further important aspect is the continual development and service over a longer period of time. No WordPress theme is perfect at the start, and will only gradually be improved and adapted along with the website. It is essential to take a flexible theme approach which also affects the code and data structure.
Even WordPress itself and many plugins are continuously further developed. Security reasons are another factor when it comes to upgrading the CMS and plugins. This could lead to an incompatibility at some point with the WordPress theme, which should also be regularly updated.
Affordable WordPress theme developers
You will have to many more aspects that just the cost in mind in order to keep the price of a WordPress theme developer as low as possible. Follow-up costs play a large role, and good developers from India are a great alternative. The costs in India are a fraction of the price in Europe. In addition, India is truly a mecca for IT Outsourcing. The country has a permanent place in the global Outsourcing economy and currently provides more than 55% of all worldwide outsourced services.
Outsourcing4work can easily find you an excellent WordPress theme developer from India, one who will develop new WordPress templates or adapt existing themes for you. We also take over the coordination for you, in addition to procurement, with our own Scrum project managers so that you will not need to worry about successful implementation. We will also take over payment for the Indian developer. Simply conclude a contract with us as a European company, and we will take care of the rest. Confidentiality and good communication are guaranteed.
A SugarCRM developer creates tailor-made CRM systems (customer relationship management) on a SugarCRM base. The software was open source up until Version 7, which led to its widespread use and a large community.
SugarCRM offers a wide range of features and enables the optimisation and automation of sales, marketing, customer support, reporting and digital collaboration activities. Mobile CRM and SocialCRM features are also available.
SugarCRM developers adapt the software to the specific needs of the client, and, depending on the company, the focus will fall on a particular area of features.
Version expertise for SugarCRM developers
There are currently four SugarCRM versions, all based on the same stem code: b>Sugar Professional, Sugar Enterprise, Sugar Ultimate and Sugar Corporate. A good SugarCRM developer has experience in each of these versions, and is also certified by the manufacturer. These certifications ensure up-to-date professionalism and expertise.
If you are looking for a SugarCRM developer, you should pay attention to the currentness and type of certification. The CRM software has changed greatly over the years, and Version 7 has seen many changes. Currently, SugarCRM offers four certifications, but not all of them guarantee the necessary expertise to develop custom implementations:
Certified Sugar Administration Specialist
Certified Sugar Developer Specialist
Certified Sugar Solution Architect Professional
Certified Sugar Sales Specialist
Out of these four certifications, only Certified Sugar Developer Specialist and Certified Sugar Solution Architect Professional are aimed at developers. You should keep an eye out for Certified Sugar Solution Architect Professional for complex and custom projects because this is the only one which tests for the knowledge required.
Trainings, exams and job experience are necessary for certification – it is not purely limited to theory.
SugarCRM developers: basics and special skills
SugarCRM is based on the LAMP Stack: the combined use of the operating system Linux, Apache as the web server, MySQL as a database platform and PHP and the central programming language. SugarCRM can also operate on other PHP enabled systems like Windows, Solaris and Mac OS X.
If different solutions are required by the LAMP Stack, then ensure that the worker has the right experience. This also applies to non-MySQL databases; SugarCRM also supports DB2, MS SQL and Oracle in addition to MySQL, which are other database systems popular among corporations.
Certifications help show expertise in the special skills, such as the globally recognized Zend seal of approval for PHP. Expertise in one or more developer frameworks plays a large role in PHP. Every developer has their own favourite, and should be familiar with the same tools for CRM implementation to ensure cooperation with other professionals.
SugarCRM developers from India
Once you have defined the selection criteria for a SugarCRM developer, nothing stands in the way of a search going beyond Europe’s borders. The global use of SugarCRM means that it is relatively easy for a company to save money on staff, and Indian SugarCRM developers are excellent examples.
In the Asian country, you will find an almost perfect mix of world-class IT expertise and very low rates. Indian is not the largest provider of IT services for no reason – the country now provides more than 55% of global Outsourcing services for IT.
Outsourcing4work has specialised in the procurement of Indian IT professionals and can easily find you a SugarCRM developer who meets your profile. We don’t leave you alone after finding you a professional, but instead provide a comprehensive and professional Outsourcing project management with our Scrum projects managers. We also take over the contract development and payment terms for you. You conclude the contract directly with us as a European company: we then take care of the rest.
WordPress templates securely set the basic design and the structure of the WordPress website. The popular content management system (CMS) is based on a modular approach, which lets the free software package take care of data management and back end features itself. The design that is viewed by the user later is set by a template or theme which will also need to be installed.
Other functions can also be installed with plugins. Although some plugins also include stylistic elements on websites, the functional aspect is the main focus. Therefore, every WordPress page requires a single template while the plugins are option and can be easily used simultaneously. When installing the CMS you will receive the current WordPress template, which is then automatically activated. However, you will not be able to operate anything more than a simple blog with that.
WordPress templates for every need
You have access to thousands of WordPress templates through a database already installed in WordPress, which allow you to realise a wide variety of websites. In addition to the usual blog design which lists articles in chronological order, you can also find templates for portfolio websites, news pages in a journal style and types optimised for e-commerce. There are also specially tailored WordPress themes for photographers, musicians and other artists which help you artfully arrange your contents.
However, many of these free templates only appear suitable at first glance, and some are even obsolete. You will quickly see their weaknesses during setup. They generally only have very few modifiable options for fonts, colours, spacing, static pages, topic blocks, advertisements and more. If you want to change something important on the design, you can only do this through complex code adjustments.
Responsive design, which refers to the dynamic adjustment of the presentation on smaller displays (smartphones, tablets, etc.) is usually also lacking or is inadequately implemented. These kinds of WordPress templates are therefore unsuitable for professional online presences. Other aspects that are also not obvious at first glance are those such as optimising for quicker loading time or code-based SEO optimisation for Google and other search engines.
A WordPress template will need to the conform to the Schema.org ontology so that individual content such as articles or static pages can be easily ready by search engines and other services such as Facebook and Twitter. This is a mark-up language for structuring web pages that lets individual content (title, author, date, page name, list, search field, comments, country codes, etc.) be accurately classified. This is essential for websites that are strongly based on content, such as new sites so that content can be quickly, accurately and fully indexed.
Professional WordPress templates and custom-made orders
You should invest some money into creating a good WordPress template for professional purposes. Generally, expensive themes off the rack will cost about US $70. However – the price alone doesn’t say much about the usability. You should know exactly what you are looking for when you select a suitable template. There are thousands of different offers for every possible type of website, and new ones are added every day. Online research and looking at leader boards and product tests won’t be very helpful; they are only marginally relevant at best.
Only a web designer with good WordPress experience, and who has already developed many pages, is able to deliver a good product. They can put together a list of suitable themes according to pre-established criteria, and can make the selection together with you. You will never find the perfect WordPress template – even the best templates will have their weak spots.
If you have special requirements that do not have a suitable WordPress template, you will need a specialist who can take on the development and customisation work. It’s also recommended to use an expert to skilfully setup a website with a WordPress template. Only hobbyists with lots of free time should even attempt to set up a site, which can easily take hundreds of hours to complete. Professionals will be significantly faster and cheaper.
Custom designing a WordPress template is rarely the right option. If you don’t require something very unusual, such as a social network or an interactive multimedia site, it’s better to simply modify existing WordPress templates. A good web developer can easily make these modifications and save a lot of effort.
If you would really like to undertake complete in-house WordPress template development, you should make sure that WordPress is really the right platform for you. Perhaps you need a PHP-based standalone web application that can be easily connected with a WordPress installation for specific content. You should always keep the costs in mind for all custom developments. WordPress is constantly evolving, and your WordPress page will require occasional updates for security reasons. This also applies to your WordPress template in order to ensure compatibility with later WordPress versions.
Indian WordPress template developers
WordPress developers, as well as theme developers, are expensive. In order to keep costs under control, Outsourcing the technical work to Indian specialists is a good alternative. You can easily find suitable workers in the Asian country thanks to WordPress’s popularity, and can realise complex projects at a fraction of the price in Europe.
Outsourcing4work has specialised in the procurement of Indian IT professionals, and has many years of experience in the area of CMS. No matter if you want to select a WordPress template, or create or optimise an entire WordPress page: we will easily find an expert who meets your requirements.
You can conveniently conclude the contract with us as a European company, and we then take care of the rest. We also don’t leave you alone during the implementation stage: our Scrum project managers will be by your side throughout the process. We are very invested in the satisfaction and success of our clients, and know the obstacles that can stand in the way of Outsourcing IT projects.
Dynamics CRM developers create tailor-made CRM systems on a large scale for Microsoft’s well-known Customer Relationship Management software. Microsoft Dynamics CRM belongs to a group of business software products that are bundled together under the Dynamics brand name on the Microsoft .NET developer platform. Dynamics CRM developers use the developer essentials provided by Microsoft, as well as the Visual Studio development environment. Thanks to the .NET platform, the CRM software is also open to many other programming languages and external platforms.
A Dynamics CRM developer must know these basics and functions
Microsoft Dynamics offers a rich set of basic features, but can be adapted very easily to suit individual needs. The software is either hosted by Microsoft via Dynamics CRM Online in the cloud, or individually on private servers. A trained Dynamics CRM developer can set this up, but should also have additional experience in Windows Server, Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft Internet Information Server and Active Directory.
Once the software has been installed, Dynamics CRM can cover a large number of communication tasks. These include, among others:
Customer administration along with telephony connection
Multi-channel campaign management via the internet and social media
Planning tools and campaign templates
Team workflow management with customised access rights
Collaborative social media features
Continuous clean-up and maintenance of contact databases
Analysis and statistics features such as customer segmentation, target groups and customer value analysis, pipeline performance analysis and forecasts
A Dynamics CRM developer is responsible for the establishment, development and maintenance of a customised CRM system. In addition to technical knowledge, they also need to thoroughly understand the business needs of their client. They often first use a requirement/process analysis and cost estimate to achieve a successful conception and architecture.
A Dynamics CRM developer’s usual tasks include creating and customising entities,fields, forms, views, charts and dashboards, establishing field security and access groups, matching CRM business processes and implementing database queries.
A Dynamics CRM developer will also realise additional features and applications in addition to GUI-based custom installations to custom server-side code and client-side scripts.
Requirements for a Dynamics CRM developer
A .NET developer with experience in several languages and lots of programming skills is not necessarily a good Dynamics CRM developer. Luckily, there is a wide range of official Microsoft certifications which allow you to find a suitably qualified employee. Microsoft offers a total of 14 different modules and certifications for Dynamics CRM, from deployment, to installation and configuration, up to designing individual applications.
Some of these certifications are for older versions, so make sure that when you are looking for a suitable Dynamics CRM developer you ensure they have experience in the version you need. The title of Dynamics CRM developers alone says nothing.
In addition to technical expertise, a Dynamics CRM developer should also have experience with similar-sized companies from the same sector as the requirements in the media industry are very different from those in e-commerce or manufacturing. Each industry has its own needs and requires different CRM solutions.
Dynamics CRM developers
You can save a lot of money by using external professionals to set up a custom Microsoft Dynamics CRM. Targeted Outsourcing to Indian IT professionals lets you reduce your costs to a fraction of European prices. India is well-known for its excellent IT experts who work all over the world in many projects as Outsourcing professionals.
Once you have set your requirement profile, you can find a suitable Dynamics CRM developer very easily in the Asian country.
Outsourcing4work has specialised in the procurement of these types of IT professionals and also offers additional services to ensure the project’s success. We provide our own Scrum project managers who are responsible for communicating with the Indian workers, as well as looking after the implementation of the individual work steps.
iOS developers are often externally hired developers. For many clients when they enter the app business, the costs are very important. And even if the planned iOS app is intended to be more of an addition to the current product range, external iOS developers are still necessary. Only large companies and corporations have the luxury of having their own development department if the app is not part of their core business. In contrast, there is a wide range of startups and independent app developers who try their luck with their own business ideas.
What iOS developers do
iOS has a market share of around 25%, in comparison to the market leader Android. There are a number of tools on offer from Apple and third-parties for developing iOS apps. If the framework provided by Apple, Xcode, is used then the iOS app is programmed using the language Objective-C. Objective-C has its roots in the programming languages C and SmallTalk. Rather than relying on Xcode, which is limited to iOS, developers like to use development environments which let you also develop the app for Android, Windows and other systems at the same time.
Xamarin lets you develop native apps for Android, iOS and Windows simultaneously by using the .NET programming language C#. Corona SDK offers the same programming opportunities, and is very popular. It uses Lua, a language that focuses on very fast and simple app development. Corona SDK is broadly positioned, with support for Kindle, Windows Desktop, macOS, Apple TV and Android TV.
The list of available programming tools goes on and on. This framework overview page lists forty different development environments which allow you to design iOS apps. When choosing the developer platform, and an iOS developer, you should keep the technology in mind. Some of these toolkits are more suitable for hybrid iOS. In hybrid apps, a native shell which is written in a language understandable to the target platform acts as the interface to the operating system.
This shell, the wrapper, allows access to the hardware and acts as a type of sandbox for correct execution. Simple hybrid apps are very similar to heavy web apps, and are developed with the relevant web technologies.
Find knowledgeable and affordable iOS developers
Once you know what app approach you will take, the search for a suitable iOS developer becomes significantly easier. Affordable iOS developers who offer their expertise as Outsourcing providers are easy to find in India. The country has a large amount of excellent IT professionals and has specialised in Outsourcing services for Western clients for years.
