The demand from the business world for innovative applications, mobile apps and web applications is growing exponentially. With these apps, organisations can stay ahead of the competition and respond quickly to new developments. At the same time, more and more organisations are choosing to move their business systems to the cloud.
These two developments pose an exciting challenge. Do you want to offer high quality apps? If so, they need to work seamlessly with your business systems. In many cases, this requires customisation, but cloud solutions are standard systems that offer little room for adjustment or customisation.
