Why indeed? Why not copy the idea and do it yourself by hiring your own API developer?
We are sure some people will. We are also sure they will soon discover to their
cost how expensive and problematic taking this direction can be.
At HughesTech we specialise in this niche. It is what we do.
We have developed this approach and refined the process over a number of years,
discovering and learning all the pit-falls and potential problems
and how to avoid them along the way.
We develop minimalistic, appropriate and targeted REST APIs and content delivery
systems with the best Open Source technologies that work, are efficient
and secure. Utilising the best Test Driven Development and continuous
deployment approach that we could find also means they are solid and responsive.
As long as requirement understanding is clear, they are also quick to develop
and even quicker to change and adapt. Comprehensive content delivery
end-points that seem to take many companies literally months to implement
can take as little as five days with HughesTech.
Changes and adaptations can only take hours, even minutes to be done, tested and deployed.
Because the service is remote and independently managed, you can completely bypass
tiresome and sometimes bureaucratic internal software
Development and set up is rolled into the reasonable monthly fee, so there are no
Capex justifications needed. The monthly SaaS agreement is entirely
open ended. Cancel anytime you wish.
If you should wish to cancel, for any reason, your data is always yours
and will be made available to you without issue.
