The benefits of using third-party tools during development
An application is said to be a third party when it has been designed by a developer other than the manufacturer of the device on which it is run or other than the owner of awebsite on which it isoffered. According to an article published on the IT SOCIAL platform in 2018, more than 9 out of 10 companies and developers “leverage third-party or open source components that integrate the code of their applications”. The reason? These tools have many advantages, both in terms of productivity and economics. Let’s talk about it!
Use third-party tools to make the development process faster
Accusoft confirms: “Third-party software integrations allow developers to quickly and seamlessly integrate core functionality into applications without compromising their project schedule. For example, the developer of a web platform using a subscription system may choose to integrate directly with a third-party tool such as ChargeBee for recurring billing and subscription management, instead of creating suitable software themselves.
- The developer can focus entirely on creating and optimizing the site.
- The platform offers a feature developed by an expert, secure and proven, to the delight of customers.
- The site can be launched as soon as possible.
In addition, it is important to note that third-party tools are usually serviced by their suppliers.
Use third-party tools to reduce development costs…
“The costs associated with third-party services are significantly lower than the upfront and maintenance costs of building the system. Some software is available for free while others charge a small monthly fee. This is what we can read through an article written by Isetechseo on Medium. And many other experts in the field confirm this claim. The Droids meanwhile states that “using third-party services is much cheaper, both upstream and during the operation of the application over time. Some third-party platforms may be available for free up to a certain level. ». In short, using third-party tools helps businesses make significant savings on the cost of developing a website.
…and benefit from specialized technical support
The integration of additional functionalities such as payment services is a real challenge and requires specific knowledge. According to Accusoft, “By leveraging proven, tested and secure third-party software integrations, developers have access to the support of experienced engineering teams with deep knowledge of their solutions.”
