It happened again! For the second year running, Software Planet Group’s Ukrainian dev centres have been recognised by Clutch as top service providers in Eastern Europe.

At Software Planet Group, we are strong believers in the importance of planning company and marketing activities, and this month is looking promising indeed! After all, what better way to take advantage of the lovely London autumn weather than by taking a stroll to the Olympia, or ExCel for a spot of tech?
So without any further delay — and bearing in mind that we might be biased — here are our top 7 picks for the month of October:
“I know that this outcome will be devastating to many people and will cause a lot of anxiety, stress and disruption,” Peter Fankhauser, the former chief executive officer of the now defunct Thomas Cook told Sky News on Tuesday, but that was putting it rather lightly.
Last Monday, when the oldest travel firm in the world unexpectedly collapsed, it left more than 150,000 Brits — and over 600,000 foreign nationals — stranded across the globe. Hotels were turned into prisons, as holidaymakers were told that unless they paid up, they would never be allowed to leave, airport terminals became scenes of chaos, and companies in every continent were knocked out by a financial earthquake.
Yet it was not supposed to end this way.
While there are plenty of reasons to move your software solutions to the cloud (digital transformation being just one of them), an important aspect that can often prove challenging to customers is the industry’s apparent failure to come up with a simple, unified pricing system — a problem which regrettably leaves many customers in the dark. This cloud hosting cost limbo, so to speak, means clients may be unaware of the actual extent of their cloud expenses, being met with unexpected charges only weeks after they’ve completed their move.
In reality, however, without adequate preparation, migrating to the cloud may be even more expensive than your current on-premise infrastructure.
So to help shed some light on this subject, today, Software Planet are presenting readers with a few invaluable suggestions to ensure our customers make the switch without a single fuss or hitch.
When designing a software solution, one of the first things companies have to do is decide on a front-end framework. And though for a while there, it appeared that React and Angular would be the only top dogs in town, out of nowhere, another contender swiftly emerged to battle it out for the proverbial crown — Vue.js.
Fast-forward to 2019, and both Vue and React provide businesses with a great productive approach to building their web applications. But as we hope to make clear in today’s article, each one of these will come with their own individual use cases and should be suited for dissimilar needs.
The world is divided between marmite and vegemite, night owls and early birds, and as it turns out, at least in the software world, mono and multi-repository backers. Once you’ve appropriately dissected the matter, however, it quickly becomes clear that this could only ever be the case.
After all, choosing to switch from one source control pattern to another is a bit like deciding to support a new football team or converting to a different religion — there are strong feelings emanating from both sides of the argument, and to a considerable extent, it requires a leap of faith.
Hard work though it may all seem, nowadays, few things can boost your company’s online profile as much as a decent search engine optimisation — or SEO — strategy. After all, ignoring this well-established set of rules could well be the key difference between successfully becoming an Amazon contender and settling for e-commerce nonentity status. Done right, however, SEO can be used to drive traffic to your website, increase sales and help you fulfil all your business goals and potential.
So why then are as many as 56 percent of companies today falling behind on their search engine optimisation efforts? While the answer to this question is certainly multifaceted, one issue in particular is that after failing to achieve any meaningful short-term results, company directors are simply giving up.
Thankfully, however, in this article, Software Planet would like to introduce you to RankSense, a revolutionary SEO solution that is about to redefine everything you know about online visibility.
Though August is not typically the most exciting of months when it comes to businesses, it is always a good idea to plan marketing and company activities, not to mention wildly illuminating professional events. After all, what better way to enjoy the less-than-sweltering London weather than by taking a stroll to the Olympia, or ExCel for a spot of tech?
This is why at Software Planet Group, we like to keep an eye out on any major upcoming events — and though of course, we may be biased — here are our top 8 picks for the month of September:
So you’re interested in Agile development, but are finding it a little too difficult to grasp? Well, look no further! Software Planet Group have assembled here a few of our favourite books by some truly legendary authors. Together, they can help you to not only better understand developers, but also the Agile process as a whole.
Though both of these things will undoubtedly play a part, developing a successful product is not usually the result of luck, or even of giving it one’s all. Instead, by and large, success comes down to a well-thought-out strategy. Nonetheless, when working on a new software product, we often fixate upon our own product vision and completely forget about where our strategy should be coming from.
Yet this — it must be said — is a largely senseless pursuit that is very much akin to a caneless blind man, happily fumbling across a busy motorway.
So to help you avoid this hazardous pitfall, today, Software Planet would like to present customers with some extremely helpful suggestions on the best way to go about devising one’s product strategy:
