Should Your Financial Services Firm Adopt Responsive Web Design?

We hear this all the time from our banking and financial services clients “What about Responsive Web Design or Adaptive Design? Should we adopt this, or not?” It’s an important question, and well worth exploring your options. With the rapid proliferation of different device types (including cell phones, tablets, and personal computers), and customers demanding “on-the-go” access to their banking applications from their mobile as well as desktop devices, Responsive Web Design and adaptive design approaches are increasingly being used to address this challenging span of demands. By providing a single code base that can adapt its layout to a variety of screen resolutions, Responsive Design enhances the customer experience and keeps support and design costs in check.

"Red Light, Green Light" Sharepoint apps can speed up your ride, with little downside

When I was a kid, I loved to play “Red Light, Green Light”. Freeze in place while the “light” is red, and run as fast as you can while the “light” is green, so you can advance to the goal and win the game. Now that I’m working in corporate environments with Nagarro, I really appreciate the delight of smooth and speedy execution, with limited time out for “red light stops”. It’s not surprising that our experience working with SharePoint Apps reminds me of this childhood game, because there are so many opportunities for zooming ahead, and relatively few areas for “red light” slow-downs. Helping our clients reach their goals quickly and effectively is a rewarding journey for all concerned. Let me share a few examples from our experience at Nagarro, to help you finesse your deployment, and chart the smoothest path.
