In any industry segment, adding value to customers should be the first priority. When it comes to Information Technology and Services, the technologies used in various stages play a key role. Since 2011, we have been trying with various technology tools available in the market. After a prolonged research and experimentation, we have narrowed down to a list of tools that are definitely the best available in the industry.

This blog is intended as an open platform for businesses to understand the trending technology tools and help businesses in decision making. The use of these technology tools has indeed proved beneficial to a majority of our customers based out of India, US, UK and Continental Europe. 


Application & Data

Application data

  1. ES6

ECMAScript is the trademarked and standardized JavaScript. Despite having ES7 and ES8 in the market, a significant amount of businesses are using ES6 or ES2015. Compared to ES5, it has saved us a significant amount of time and caused fewer bugs during the development cycle.

The Class, Arrow Functions, String Interpolations, Array / Object Destructing and many other features associated with ES6 makes it worthwhile. Many times our customers ask if its safe for their enterprise applications and our answer is always a YES.


  1. Python

Python, the remarkably high-level programming language, is one of our core areas of expertise. What makes it so distinguishing is its scripting nature. Since its first release in 90’s, Python has undergone drastic changes and achieved major improvisations.

 At SayOne, we opt Python over any other scripting or programming languages for robust applications. You can read more about our Python experience here.


  1. React

If there are other JavaScript languages such as Angular, then why should we opt for React? Well, React is the definition for ‘future of web development’. The top tier players such as Facebook, Instagram, Airbnb and many others are using React for its simplicity and increased code reusability. 

To add more, around 94,000 websites are currently using React. This has encouraged early technology adopters like us to reap the benefits of React for our customers worldwide. We have executed over 300 projects using React which are running successfully globally.


  1. Redis

According to sources, Redis is ranked as the popular key-value database and the fourth popular NoSQL database in satisfaction and market presence. It is much faster than traditional databases and common with microservice architectures.

For enterprises and organizations, Redis is the apt Database choice. All the credit goes to its extremely low latency, high performance, and persistence. Any highly scalable distributed system mandatorily needs Redis for uninterrupted performance.


  1. Node.js

If you or your organization keenly follow the latest technology trends, then Node.js is a technology that tops your list. It's Google V8 JavaScript Engine and JIT (Just-In-Time) Compiler make perfect for code optimization compared to PHP. 

Node.js is the revolutionary JavaScript that can be used for server-side programming. The technology has been widely used by pioneers such as Uber, Netflix, Walmart etc.


  1. Elastic Search

Given our experience in Elastic Search, it is by far the most reliable distributed analytics engine. GitHub uses Elasticsearch to query 130 billion lines of code. Speed, scalability, reliability, and relevancy are its major technical benefits. The real-time search and analytics engine detects and corrects the anomalies in search queries such as misspelled words, synonyms etc




Now, let’s see what’s trending in the mobile world! 

  1. Swift 

Swift for iOS applications is invariably a hot topic of discussion. Swift drops many legacy conventions and is easy to understand. Developers working on Python, C#, Java, JavaScript and so on can easily adopt Swift for its readability. 

For businesses, Swift promotes faster coding resulting in accelerated delivery of mobile applications. During our six years of applications journey, there were many instances when Swift with its remarkable syntax prevented our critical apps from crashes and security issues. 


  1. Java 

Java and Android applications go hand-in-hand. Java Virtual Machine (JVM) promises secure Android applications for users. For Android applications, Java has become imperative. Although there are many other languages available in the market, nothing matches with Java in terms of speed and redundancy. 


  1. Flutter

Flutter is the modern, reactive framework, popular in the mobile application domain. With 25k stars on GitHub, Google’s Flutter triggers quick app development on both iOS and Android platforms. A distinguishing characteristic of Flutter is that it gives reactive-style views without using JavaScript bridge. 

Flutter is an easy way to attain a competitive advantage in the mobile app market. 


  1. React Native

React Native (RN) bridges the gap between native and JavaScript. For any application to be successful among users, User Interface (UI) is one of the vital factors. A rich mobile UI is the advantage that businesses can enjoy with React Native application development. 

When your application is built using RN, it becomes indistinguishable from a native app.  


  1. Kotlin

Kotlin is a newbie in the programming language arena. As a modern programming language, it doesn’t stay aloof from the rest of the programming languages in terms of readability. It can be used anywhere Java is used. All your Java projects can be continued using Kotlin. 

So what’s the business advantage? It reduces bugs and errors in the code, provides better support for functional programming and a lot more.
