The Difference between Web Development and Software…

Bill Gates, the founder of Microsoft, once said,

‘If your business is not on the internet, your business will go out of business”

Bill Gates’s statement is not a mere figment. In today’s digital era, businesses that ignore the power of the internet will almost certainly find it difficult to survive, it even impossible to grow bigger. Maintaining online existence is a must in today’s digital transformation era.

If you now understand how important it is to maintain online existence, the next is you have to know where to go for help. Bringing your business to the internet alone may overwhelm you. At the very least, you must seek the help of a trusted IT consultant.

However, the problem is what kind of IT consultant do you need? Do not be wrong in choosing one. You may need to create a website, but then you visit a software developer instead of visiting a website developer.

For that, we will try to briefly describe the differences between web development and software development.

What is Web Development?

Web Development is a process for developing a website. Whether it’s a single page with plain text or a website with more complex pages with high-level graphics and animation, it all fits into web development.

The process in web development includes web design, development, testing, and deployment. For your information, web development is not only the front-end and back-end coding, it is much more than that.

So, if you are currently trying to create a website specifically developed for your business, then you should at least contact a qualified and experienced web developer company. 

Web developers are familiar with handling web development projects that cover front-end development and back-end development. Web developers will choose the right technology for your project, including any tools needed, especially those who seek to build a website from scratch that is tailored to the business.

What is Software Development?

Software development covers a broader range than web development. Software development refers to the process of writing code to create various computer software and applications in a special computer-coded programming language.

Examples of software include Google Chrome, Microsoft Office (MS Word, MS Excel, etc.), Skype, Slack, etc. To develop software, you clearly need a company that is capable of developing software, sometimes also known as a software development company.

Experienced software developers will not be careless in carrying out software development projects. At least, they understand and practice the principles in the SDLC (Software Development Life Cycle).

Professional software developers are experts in designing and developing software that is compatible with PCs, smartphones, and tablets. Apart from design, software developers are also responsible for debugging error codes, upgrading interface designs, and many others.

Using Services from Web Developer and Software Developer 

The good news is, currently there are many companies that offer website development that is customized specifically according to business needs, for example, AsiaQuest Indonesia. AsiaQuest Indonesia has years of experience in developing websites for companies wishing to venture into online business.

Apart from being experienced in website development, AsiaQuest Indonesia also serves software development.
