3. Choose a platform that offers flexibility
Every app differs as per the needs of a business and its clients. Given this, you’ll need a platform that’s open, flexible, and scalable.
All possible programming languages should be supported and your platform should be adjustable enough to scale up or scale down as per user needs.
Built-in services for testing, analysis, and deployment are also necessary.
