Since Tim Berners-Lee invented what we today know as the internet, websites have undergone a
great evolution, today being one of the main sources of information and communications. We have moved from
the “Internet of Information”, when websites were limited to presenting texts and images
connected by links, to the “Internet of Interaction”, or what is known as Web 2.0
where users participate in content through discussion forums and blogs, to
the “Social Internet”, where users share and consume information in real time from
a multitude of different devices.
Today there are many different uses for the internet: social networks, intranets for companies, document
repositories, content managers, online stores, interactive advertising, new forms of art, etc. and
all of these uses are supported by rapid development of the technology that makes the internet possible.
Websites have stopped being isolated entities, becoming interactive, with a large ecosystem of
technologies such as social networks, mobile applications, QR codes, payment systems, etc.
All of this has led to the creation of a series of methodologies and techniques that allow the planning and
development of advanced websites with the guarantee that the resulting project will be a success. Web
development, therefore, is becoming increasingly complex, as all engineers must know about the
latest technologies and closely follow the evolution of market trends to incorporate
the latest standards.
The work teams that develop these projects cannot only be
made up of engineers, instead requiring specialists in other disciplines such as
marketing, usability, user experience, online business, etc.
This is where we stand out, as we have professionals specialized
in these disciplines.

From the desktop to the cloud
There are currently web versions of the most commonly used desktop programs: word processors,
invoicing software, photograph editing, games, etc. All of these are driven by the multitude of
advantages of the internet over traditional software: it allows the program to be accessed from any
device and at any time, the server assumes the burden, and it is thereby possible to reduce costs by purchasing
less powerful computers for day to day tasks, not being affected by viruses, information
entered being replicated in several data centers making it more tolerant to faults, it not being necessary
to update each installation to implement any change or improvement, once carried out, all users
will see the new version.
For these reasons,
each day more companies choose to migrate their systems and applications to the
cloud, specifically to web applications, and this is where Web Engineering comes into play.
Guarantees the success of your project
Web Engineering is a set of techniques and methodologies that allow the planning,
analysis, development and evolution of complex web applications
These techniques allow high quality of the final product to be guaranteed, in accordance
with the wishes of the client, and at the same time complying with usability
accessibility, security and navigability specifications.
To better understand the concept of web engineering, it is necessary to distinguish between a website
and a web application. A website is a place where generally static content
is published and where there is not excessive interaction with the user. For example, the website of a company
showing information on products that are sold, its location and contact information. Conversely,
a web application is a software system where the user can interact with the information,
store it in databases, make electronic payments, share and obtain information from other
websites, have restricted access areas, intranets, etc.
There are several challenges facing Web Engineering which sometimes make the development of
these applications even more complex than the traditional desktop applications. Users
expect to be able to use internet applications without needing to read nay manual, therefore
they must be exceptionally intuitive. Additionally, they expect to be able to use them from their mobile phone or
computer, so they must be designed to function on any device, from anywhere
in the world and at any time. They must support access for a multitude of different people, and therefore
must be scalable, and finally, they must be and appear secure, as their success will be linked to the
confidence that we generate in their end users.

Save costs by automating daily tasks
Web applications can help to reduce significant expenses through the automation of tasks which are
common but which use a lot of time and/or personnel (in the end they consume a lot of
money if you analyze it), thus allowing work to be speeded up, reducing changes of context.
In operation, these internet applications allow the mobility of the company and employees to be increased,
allowing them to access the information from anywhere. Likewise, it may help to
make clients loyal through the use of suitable management tools, contributing to increased
productivity and profitability.
The implementation of these tools is much more simple than in the case of desktop
applications, as it is not necessary to install any program, with an internet connection being sufficient.

Understandable methodology without
the need for computing knowledge
Our method Your satisfaction
We have developed our own methodology that we call Interface Oriented Development which
we have applied continuously for several years to guarantee success in the projects
entrusted to us.
Interface Oriented Development consists of the creation of detailed designs of each one of the screens of the application being
developed, describing all the actions that the user may carry out.
It is especially useful in the
extraction requirements of the system to create, as it is carried out in collaboration with the client
through a series of interviews in which the details of the application are gradually specified
With this analysis we achieve the following objectives:
Obtaining a list of functional requirements, each one specified in detail.
Minimizing the risk of misinterpretation of a functional requirement, as
communication with the client is clearer and more precise, with graphical examples.
Detecting usability problems, as we can carry out the first usability
tests using only the mockups.
Obtaining a document that may serve as a contract with the client.
Advancing work on the design of the user interface.
Facilitating the work of the designer, having each and every one of the screens outlined.
