GUI Applications

Our engineers and designers are ready to create desktop applications for a host of platforms and operating systems. From hardware accelerated native clients, to productivity apps and beyond.

Command-Line Tools

Have Coduity convert your system scripts into fully fledged command-line tools, or have us create case-specific tooling for your business environment.

Server Applications

Distributed workloads such as scientific computing, big data analysis and server-side rendering require an expert hand. Our engineers can assist your business to create the perfect HPC tooling.

Process Automation

Process automation using high performance native code instead of resource consuming scripts helps to reduce operational latency and other complications. Our engineers can help streamline your server automation procedures.

Our Process

During the planning and architectural phase we explore the fundamentals of your project.

  • gathering requirements and analysis
  • laying out a map of the customer project
  • developing the design aesthetic
  • selecting the tools and technology stack
  • estimating time and budget parameters

Our designers will visualise the project and flow of user interaction.

  • mockups, wireframes
  • prototyping

Our engineers will bring the project to life.

  • convert prototypes of the design phases
  • optimise user interface (UI) and user experience (UX)
  • ensure project goals are met by the frontend interface
  • create and / or integrate backend data services

Our engineers and designers will make sure that project goals have been met and optimise the frontend and backend services accordingly.

  • usability tests
  • platform tests
  • security tests
  • performance tests

The project will be deployed and made available to end users.

  • staff training
  • deployment of frontend and backend services
  • gathering and analysis of ’live’ metrics

We ensure full satisfaction.

  • tweaking and modifications
  • troubleshooting
  • assistance with upgrades
  • assistance with live analysis

Frequently Asked Questions

What does native development mean?

Native development refers to traditional software development, which is focused on integration with the operating system and platform it is intended for.

With more and more applications being ported over to browser based technologies, the term ’native’ has come to signify applications that are built to interact with operating systems and hardware more directly and are thus more performant.

What are the benefits and drawbacks?

The most obvious benefits are performance and security. Native applications generally communicate with operating system and hardware resources directly, mitigating the need for a slew of network security features. Native applications are also generally built on native programming languages, which are far more performant than web technologies as well as offering advanced features such as direct hardware acceleration.

Drawbacks are mostly related to development time and maintenance. True native applications are platform specific, meaning a separate codebase for each platform. To make the application available on each major platform (i.e. Linux, Windows, MacOS, Android, iOS) requires significantly more work and investment than applications based on web technologies.

While web technologies are fine for most data centric applications, the same cannot be said for applications that are focused on real-time graphics, physics simulations and specialised hardware interaction. Image manipulation, video editing, audio processing and games for example are clear contenders for native application development, as are applications that require heightened levels of security.

Why develop process automation natively?

Process automation efforts usually start their life-cycle as basic scripts which become more and more complicated over time. While using scripting languages for prototyping and performing simple tasks is certainly understandable, it does not scale well. There is a lot to gain in efficiency and resource management by redeploying (complicated) scripts as native software.
