I want scalable and adaptable applications

To keep up with modern software lifecycles with frequent release cycles, software architecture has moved on from monolithic applications to more manageable microservices. These microservices have specialised roles and therefore wildly varying workloads based on which service is needed at the time. The subsequent need for flexible infrastructure is why the cloud is such a natural fit for modern applications.

To be honest though, there are many ways to get microservice/cloud services wrong too. App modernisation is a process that requires careful consideration to avoid unnecessary costs and/or technical difficulties. That’s why we at GC innovate are here to guide you every step of the way. With the open and cloud native Google Cloud components we can build a cloud solution that fits your business just right!

Not everything belongs on the cloud, and sometimes one cloud just isn’t enough! Sounds weird coming from Google Cloud experts, but that’s because Google’s open philosophy makes managing multi- and hybrid cloud infrastructure so easy!

Thanks to technologies like Google Anthos, you can build, deploy, and maintain applications anywhere; simply, flexibly, and securely. Our expertise will help you figure out exactly where each component fits best.

As mentioned, there are a lot of ways to get the cloud wrong. Google has always championed a cloud native approach, where applications are designed specifically to take advantage of the benefits the cloud provides.

Google Cloud’s end-to-end platform accelerates your developer productivity, simplifies operations, and builds security and compliance into your software delivery process. And if you need any developers, GC innovate is ready to provide you with the relevant experts

Serverless application development aims to make traditional infrastructure management a thing of the past by fully abstracting hardware management. You design the components, and thanks to serverless technology these components always have the exact right amount of power to service your users.

Google Cloud’s serverless compute platform allows you to develop, deploy, and scale applications fast and securely in a fully managed serverless environment. GC innovate has the necessary expertise to guide your organisation through the necessary technical and organisational changes to get the most out of this next generation in cloud computing!

When it comes to future-proofing your applications, one of the most important challenges is probably making sure your applications work on different platforms and screen sizes. Flutter is Google’s open source framework that allows you to create beautiful, natively compiled, multi-platform applications from a single codebase.

Together with our frontend experts, you can design an application that boosts your business’ application in no time. We have the UI/UX expertise to create applications that look great, and work great, on any device.

No code has been called the ultimate leveller of the playing field between large and smaller businesses, but even larger businesses will appreciate that there is now a faster and easier way to build applications for both employees and customers.

AppSheet apps are Google’s no-code solution, designed to work on both desktop and mobile devices, and usable for a wide variety of business use cases including project management, operations, field work, human resources, sales, and marketing.

The traditional barrier between Development and Operations is crumbling. This ‘separation of powers’ worked perfectly fine in a context of monthly releases and monolithic applications, but today these departments are forced to work closer together than ever to keep up with the pace of digital innovation.

Enter DevOps, the organisational and cultural movement that aims to increase software delivery velocity, improve service reliability, and build shared ownership among software stakeholders. DevOps is supported by technology, but mainly requires a shift in mentality and organisation. Guiding your organisation through this evolution is what we at GC innovate do best!

Many companies who migrated during the early days of cloud computing did so using the path of least resistance with Virtual Machines, or VM’s for short. It’s a strategy that seemingly makes sense: simply take your existing physical infrastructure and duplicate it in the cloud on virtual machines. Unfortunately, while VM’s have many uses, they are not really suitable for application hosting.

Containers are a far more suitable alternative that take full advantage of the benefits of the cloud. Our unique automated approach extracts critical application elements from the VM so you can easily insert those elements into containers in Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) or Anthos clusters without the VM layers that become unnecessary with containers.

Modern systems are increasingly interconnected and reliant on external services, which is why proper API management is absolutely essential. Google Cloud’s API management platform allows you to govern, analyse, and get visibility into all your APIs across hybrid and multi cloud environments.

Using an API-first approach will not only help maintain your applications in production, but is also a valuable tool during design and development: as long as the API remains the same, your developers can modify each component without having to worry about how it affects the rest of your application.

Releases now go into production within a matter of hours, and the whole organisation is more connected. The fact that we can work so fast and efficiently directly results from our innovative event-driven infrastructure.
