Surge in App Development Demand on Apple’s New Coding Lingo Swift

Cloud Computing

Swift saves enterprise money as they are compiled codes. With an app written in PHP, the server has to compile the code on the fly, which requires computing resources every time. That means less hardware, less money, more safety and more scalability. Over the past seven years, App Sore has paid over $30 billion to iOS app developers. It holds the record of app download at over 100 million, and currently averaging 850 downloads per second. 83% of the iOS users have the latest version as opposed to only 12% of the Android users. Tim Cook repeatedly emphasized enterprise foundations like privacy, security, and trust.

iOS8 was a huge release for the enterprise that appears to have paid off. According to Apple, 98% of Fortune 500 companies have built one or more iOS apps since iOS8 was released.

Apple CEO Cook Tim said – After Swift’s release as an open source project, more than 100,000 apps have integrated Swift code and it has become the number one language project on GitHub. He also said that is so easy to learn and it has the potential to bring many more people into coding.

Key benefits of Swift in Enterprise App Development:
Apart from helping in building secure and robust enterprise app, Swift makes enterprise app development dynamic in the following three ways.

  • Multi-faceted language: It is considered to be a multifaceted programming language that allows iOS app developers to build all types of apps from, including commonly used enterprise apps, and also advanced low-power Apple Watch apps.
  • Open source for enterprise app development: This is a big move by Apple. Before Apple’s new language, Microsoft.NET was the most used open-source language in the enterprise environment. Open sourcing of core libraries enables developers to develop efficient contextual enterprise apps on the latest version of iOS giving rise to streamlined business processes.
  • Cut down on initial app size with Dynamic Libraries: On most occasions, enterprise apps take more time to load. App development in Swift uses dynamic libraries which are directly uploaded to the memory, cutting down on the initial size of the app, ultimately increasing the app performance.

Objective-C is the past and Swift is the future of enterprise app development. The app developed in Swift – truly has lived up to the name, by being fast, of a better quality and offering high performance. With a strong community support, it is a modern day programming language of iOS development. It has proved to be a smarter programming language, one that can create a more direct and meaningful connection between iOS app developers and end users.

The new programming language is becoming more popular and, in time may find a home on corporate servers. The possibility of expanding it to the server side made it the most-loved programming language by iOS app developers.

Swift on the cloud is radically simplifying the developer experience, and organizations of all sizes can benefit from this accelerated path to productivity. Successful app development in Swift– has made it a preferred language for enterprise use, and it is exciting to know that more and more companies are starting to realize the benefits of this new programming language. There is a massive ecosystem growing around Swift, and by putting the right tools in the hands of iOS app developers, it is assisting enterprises to accelerate their path to productivity.

Productivity benefits of the new language do not only come from within the code – a better app with less code – it also comes from development teams enjoying what they do. Hence, Swift, no doubt is a game changer for enterprises.
