Developing business application for all devices means more than just coding

Canoo Engineering is a leading software company for web-based Java business applications. Our comprehensive expertise gathered since our founding in 1999, top-class engineers and developers as well as more than 400 years in object-oriented software reinforce our ability to deliver.

We are convinced that developing a business application means much more than just coding. With Canoo as your partner, you will benefit from our knowledge in many crucial domains:

Requirements Engineering

Requirements analysis is critical to the success of a development project. System requirements need to be actionable, measurable, testable, related to identified business needs and defined to a level of detail sufficient for system design.

New systems change the environment and relationships between people, so it is important to identify all the stakeholders, take into account all their needs and ensure they understand the implications of the new systems.

Analysts can employ several techniques to elicit the requirements from the customer. Historically, this has included such things as holding interviews, or conducting focus groups and creating requirements lists. Further up to date techniques include (paper) prototyping and use cases.

Usability Engineering

Having a good foundation is the most crucial thing when it comes to software development. This is why we give top priority on the requirements of their users. We understand the users’ needs and know what can turn their software into an efficient business tool. So, our team lays the foundation for optimum usability.

After all, today’s applications must not only be easy to operate, but also need to inspire and impress. Thanks to usability engineering, you can gain an early impression of your application before any lines of code are written. We accomplish this by capturing and analysing users’ requirements and tasks, and continue this activity throughout the entire development process.

We work using scientifically tried and tested usability engineering methods. These include, for example:

  • Personas, scenarios, storyboards, use cases
  • Interaction concepts, prototyping, visual design
  • Usability testing, walkthroughs, expert reviews
  • Coaching, training

Application & Interface Development

Many applications present developers with major challenges. Extremely diverse business processes need to be supported in a flexible manner. This requires experience in dealing with complex business applications, suitable client technology and flexible integration into the existing application architecture.

Our bundled expertise ensures you a single-source for the development of your web-based business applications. We can support your project from conception and usability testing, through to realization – on every platform. We are aware of the benefits and opportunities that native mobile applications based on iOS and Android can present in the field of business. Mobile web applications based on HTML5 (e.g. GWT, SenchaTouch), however, are often the first choice for business apps. We can help you find the suitable ecosystem for your business applications.
