Infragistics E-Book Helps Developers Select Component Vendors

Teaming With a Vendor Can Double Speed to Market and Boost ROI

CRANBURY, N.J., Sept. 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Selecting the right vendor to help develop a software application can enable a company to get its app to market twice as fast and start reaping a return on investment in a mere six months, according to a new e-book published by Infragistics. However, many companies go it alone or choose the wrong supplier in an increasingly challenging environment without established best practices.

In "How to Evaluate Component Vendors," Infragistics, a global leader in user experience that helps developers build amazing apps, shares experience-based insight. The e-book empowers both the developer and decision maker by offering a blueprint for identifying an optimal match.

"Turning to a specialist in components and tools is the best solution for many developers," said Jason Beres, Senior Vice President of Developer Tools with Infragistics. "Among the advantages, an app provider can cut its research and development time in half, resulting in a 50 percent shorter time to market. The app provider can begin seeing ROI in 6.3 months and realize a 22 percent return in three years. Reusing existing code typically saves $100,000."1 

However, Beres said, "Many developers are missing out on these financial opportunities because increasing complexities, end-user expectations and market dynamics make vendor selection challenging, and there is little helpful guidance."

For developers who choose to systematically assess vendors and their solutions, the e-book describes how to get started, what requirements to set and how to measure vendors against the specifications. Recommended criteria include:

  • Vendor reputation: Consider depth of experience and commitment to the platforms and technologies you use.
  • Ease of use: Gauge simplicity by downloading the tools and exploring the support options with which the vendor provides you.
  • User experience: Look for examples of modern, beautiful apps developed with the controls, templates and wizards provided.
