'Application hopping' or in-depth knowledge?

Today, new technologies are being launched all the time. The question is: would it be wise to use each and every one of them, just to keep up with the times? How can you find the perfect balance between switching to new innovations and staying true to your current system? We would like to share our insights with you!

In-depth knowledge

RaDeSys has always attached great value to in-depth knowledge. If a company worries about IT trends all the time, it will never get the opportunity to really get to know an application. Allowing yourself to become familiar with a certain technology comes with obvious benefits: you will learn how to use it like no other. Knowledge is key, because it ensures that you can make the most of the application you're working with.

Long-term mindset

Let's have a look at a current development: frontend developers are increasingly expected to take on technical tasks - whereas in the past, these were assigned to backend developers. Although RaDeSys understands this trend, we believe that being highly specialized is an undefeatable and indispensable skill. Therefore, we are making the investments required to keep up.

Constantly switching to the very latest applications also means you will get less support, as your high-tech product is not yet stable. In its early stages, RaDeSys opted for Microsoft, a big supplier that provides extensive support and is keen on keeping its market share - which means it's always a forerunner when it comes to new developments. Needless to say that staying with Microsoft has had its benefits over the years!

Of course, RaDeSys also investigates new technologies to see whether these are interesting to work with. However, we always take the long-term aspect into consideration, asking ourselves: Is this application likely to be around for a longer period of time?

Hopping: a 'do' or a 'don't'?

The biggest advantage of 'application hopping' is that you stay trendy and up to date. On the other hand, durability is never guaranteed, as your new technology can be taken off the market just as fast as it was launched. And often, there's no such thing as a proper support department that you can turn to if things go south.
