Five Challenges an App Developer May Encounter When Developing Apps

If you have been thinking of creating an app, then you have probably considered developing and testing it on the cloud. Cloud development will usually include development environments that are integrated, management components for your application life cycle, and components for security testing. Though app development companies take care of the design to deployment, Here are 5 challenges that you may experience as you develop your app on the cloud:

1. Differing configurations — Sometimes you will find that your regular production configurations are not easy to replicate when it comes to the cloud. Sometimes you will create your app on the cloud and when it is time to test it locally, you may run into some challenges. It may require a legacy system in order to test it, but you wouldn’t be able to copy it into your cloud service. One of the hacks in such a situation is to use service virtualization technology, which can help you move some of your applications to the cloud.

2. Incompatibility — If the app you are developing integrates systems that are hard to replicate or access, then it will probably be very difficult to develop your app on the cloud and test it. This means that if you are developing an application that is high end, with extreme regulatory and data security restrictions, or one that is dependent on legacy coding projects, the cloud is not the route for you.
