There are many software houses in Italy, and in this article we will discover a selection of the 5 best Italian software houses active in the digital transformation field.
First of all, it is important to know that a software house is a company that produces software on the basis of Customer’s request, following some fundamental steps:
Although all IT services and software houses follow the same production stages, there are different types of software houses, such as large companies that create standard software for a wide audience (Microsoft, SAP AG, Adobe Systems and Apple Inc. ) or companies that make software in SaaS (Software as a Service), that means software distributed without installation and used via the web (Google and Amazon). Not only private companies, but also public administrations gain innumerable advantages from the implementation of IT solutions applied to the organisation and management of the company.
The software houses also differ in application domains, i.e. in sectors in which they operate:
HOW TO CHOOSE A HOUSE SOFTWARE
Given the large number of Italian and foreign software houses in the world, it is essential to understand on whom to rely and to recognise the software producers best suited to their needs.
Certainly, one of the first things to evaluate is the experience and the specialisation of the software house that you have chosen in projects similar to the one you want to realise. Studying the different types of projects the company has already dealt with and the information about its software products will help you understand if that software house is right for you.
In addition to the type of experience, in fact, it is also important to evaluate the type of interfaces previously created, on the basis of their ease of use and their aesthetics.
Software development is an activity that requires some specialisation. For this reason, it is important to be sure that those who manage the production phases have the necessary computer skills and are not unprepared.
Before the creation of tailor-made software, an interaction between the client and the supplier is necessary to avoid misunderstandings that lead to functionality different from expectations and other unpleasant situations. Choosing communication professionals is possible even by taking a look at the website of the software house.
Trust is the most difficult parameter to evaluate objectively. Choose who looks serious and reliable, distrusts those who appear superficial and unprofessional from the beginning.
