Tech We Like: App Innovation Acceleration

By Redapt Marketing | Posted on October 17, 2019 | Posted in Business Transformation, Emerging Tech

These days, there are more tools than ever at the disposal of app developers. So many, in fact, that it can be hard to keep track of what they all are, what they do, and which ones are a cut above.

Since we’re always testing and experimenting with new tools and solutions for our clients, we’ve compiled a list of five of our favorites to help boost app innovation.

While we typically remain tech agnostic, each of these comes from one of our trusted partners, and we’re constantly putting them to use to help our clients.

1. GitHub

When it comes to sharing code and collaborating with like-minded developers, or those working on similar projects, it’s hard to beat this ever-growing platform.

If you’re not already on this platform, it’s a great place to get inspired, work on problems, move projects forward, and learn from others.

2. Azure Pipeline

Testing and integration in Azure doesn’t get much easier than with this automation tool. Azure Pipeline allows you to fully automate your builds and deployments so you can spend less time cranking out code and more time creating something incredible.

3. HashiCorp Terraform

This is one of our go-to tools for defining and spinning up multiple cloud environments. It allows you to quicken your pace of innovation by eliminating barriers, human error, and automating your resource management across your workflow.

4. Jenkins

Like automation? Great, because more of it is coming your way. After using Jenkins with cloud, we’ve discovered that creating continuous delivery pipelines for software projects is a breeze with this open-source automation server.

5. Rapid 7

Limiting threat exposure and remediating vulnerabilities are always time-sensitive, which is why we recommend this hybrid security management system. It helps make sure your cloud workloads are secure by helping you analyze your security score, identifying potential threats, and more. Plus it’s fully customizable to protect the things that truly matter to you and your organization.

These are just some of our go-to tools when clients come to us looking to accelerate their app development processes. If you want to learn more about how you can boost innovation in your app development, schedule a consultation with one of our app modernization experts.
