"We’re able to reduce the cost and effort of app development for streaming platforms from six people for six months (three work years) to just a single developer working on the application for three months or less."
In Configuration-Driven Application Development, we take the idea of an app that needs to be delivered on many platforms and devices and translate that into an experience. That experience has common functionality and user interactions. The inner workings of those functionalities, interactions, and content remain the same between all apps and platforms but the specific implementations are where the real changes need to occur. In this way, the actual code written to address a specific platform is very targeted and small but provides extremely consistent results.
For our client, that means we’re able to reduce the cost and effort of app development for streaming platforms from six people for six months (three work years) to just a single developer working on the application for three months or less. In fact, we’ve been able to customize this application for new platforms so easily that our client has been the first network television app on the target platforms.
