Sunil Jagani’s insights provide listeners with practical guidance and actionable steps to enhance their app development endeavors.
When asked what mistakes he had encountered in app development projects and what he has learned from them, Sunil Jagani replied:
“Developers commit various mistakes while carrying out app development projects. We can categorize them into two categories. The first part focuses on what common issues occur from the product owners’ side, and the second part deals with issues from the development team’s side. To start with issues from the product owner’s side, many app development projects begin without proper market research. People come up with an idea but need help to differentiate whether that idea is a feature or an application. Also, they need help understanding the domain. So if the project caters to a specific domain, the product owner must have a clear vision or goal. Budget constraints, or limited funds, are one of the core challenges that lead to product or app failure. Other common pitfalls include poor UI/UX, inadequate testing, poor communication between clients and the development team, overengineering the product features, etc. Marketing is an integral part of the app development process, which shouldn’t be considered an afterthought. Also, not identifying the app’s core features will lead to unexpected delays in the project. The app development team may encounter problems due to unplanned roadmap planning and updates.”
Sunil Jagani shed light on some strategies to perform market research before developing a mobile app saying, “Market research is one of the most essential strategies in the app development process. Market research outcome helps identify the core areas where your app can get a competitive advantage. I’ll share some critical strategies to perform market research before developing a mobile app. 1. Study the domain/market, identify the target audience, and determine the problem the app will solve. 2. Getting a thorough knowledge of the strengths and weaknesses of the product. 3. Identifying obstacles and strategies to overcome the weaknesses. 4. Determining the business model and validating the same against accepted practices. 5. Creating a viable marketing strategy.”
The interviewer then asked, “It is often recommended that they develop an MVP for testing the waters. But what factors should companies consider before launching an MVP?”
“You have core workflows of the application, which we call working wireframes or HTML wireframes. Also, while working on wireframes, you get several ideas and opportunities for open brainstorming sessions. And the clients love these sessions. So, we give the option to our clients to decouple the design phase from the development phase. We also ask the question to our clients what is more important for them; time to market or reduce the risk.
It is crucial to identify core features, ensure it solves the core problem, and validate the user journey on the app. For example, you can define the core architecture and UI QX software in the design phase. You can develop clickable wireframes, which will actually run with a click on the mobile device. Also, you need to choose the right technology and technology partner alongside the right architecture and cloud services to ensure high availability and a robust app. Collecting feedback from potential users and measuring results is critical to apply insights to the app roadmap,” replied Sunil Jagani.
