5 Startup Success Myths Before You Build an App
As digital media is acquiring more and more importance, application and website development has seen a dramatic rise. Not only does this require the need to understand algorithms, but it also requires an understanding of applying machine learning algorithms in software development.
Chances are that if your algorithms aren’t well planned and properly thought out, your application might fail. It’s always better to induce new technology, like AI machine learning, to stay updated. Falling prey to myths while creating something new is a path that one has to take to be successful.
However, it is always better to take precautions when you can. Here are 5 myths, you need to keep in your checklist and steer clear of if you are developing an application.
Myth #1: Uniqueness Is the Way to Success
Creating an application that has never been thought of will not guarantee success. The idea or the functionality of the application should be a problem solver. The focus should not be on creating something new, but rather something useful and efficient.
It can also happen that uniqueness might lead you to become blind sighted about the actual use of the application and might blur the line between quirkiness and functionality.
Myth #2: AI Machine Learning is the New Future
Artificial Intelligence is gaining importance. However, an AI-based application will not directly mean success if it isn’t well programmed.
Myth #3: Finance Will Make or Break Your Application
While financial support is important to get the application started, success will not directly increase with the amount of money you put in to make the application.
A successful application will always have the ability to fund itself soon enough and will give you profits which can be used for customer acquisition, thus beginning the cycle of surplus money.
Myth #4: Technical Expert is a Must Have
Usually, the blueprint or the first layout of an application is relatively simple and needs machine learning programming at later stages. However, it is not much of a problem if you don’t have a technical person on your original team.
You can easily outsource a software development company and have them take a look at the technical aspects of the application, while it retains the simplicity you started out with. A successful application at its heart can have algorithms and simple machine learning programs that are not very technical in nature, and yet are successful.
Myth #5: Continuous Evaluation of Algorithms is Not Necessary
The first thing that any application developer learns is that application is an ongoing thing. It needs continuous evaluation, removal of bugs, changes in the user interface of the application, making it more simplistic and efficient, and a lot more.
Application development is not a one-time investment and needs renewals and evaluation of each and everything so that your application stands out from the others. An algorithm, be it artificial intelligence machine learning, or any other algorithm, needs updates and fixing, as and when new technology gets invented.
A path to success is filled with obstacles. Therefore, it is better to be aware of myths rather than making mistakes and losing out on finance as well as time.
