An app in itself is nothing if it doesn’t manipulate the right data in a timely fashion.”
Third-party Integrations: You don’t want to build everything from scratch so look for third parties that provide best of breed solutions for point problems. Push notifications, Analytics, Authorization, and Authentication are just a few items that should be considered.
Many make the mistake of considering only the front-end when determining a mobile app budget. By doing this, they are ignoring the largest cost factors, which typically lie within the backend infrastructure and integrations that aren’t immediately visible.
We can demonstrate this using everyone’s favorite example: Uber. First of all, Uber actually has two distinct apps. The first is what the users see that allows them to order the service, manage their accounts, etc. The second is the app the drivers use. Even if it were only a single app, the amount of backend infrastructure and integration the app requires to function would surprise many. You have the location and map components; a payment/transaction system; dynamic pricing model based on demand; and much, much more.
Just take a look at Uber’s breakdown of their tech stack (and this is only Part 1 of 2, not including the middleware or front-end components). Applications that require this kind of infrastructure are expensive to build and scale: Uber’s initial funding was 1.5 million USD, with much more capital acquired through follow-up stages.
