Why should I migrate my app?

Webpack has been the standard tool for bundling source code into deployable software for quite some time now, and as we move further into the development cycles, the bundle tools tend to become just one item of the list of supporting tools that help you on your day-to-day code experience. For instance, if you use create-react-app, that decision was already made for you, so you can focus on coding features for your fantastic products.

As time goes on, you keep adding new amazing features, building solutions, and helping others achieve their goals and objectives. All the while, without making too…

At Rangle, we do quality differently. Our practice is built on the notion of shifting quality to the left-that is, moving quality from it’s traditional place as the last-step-in-product-development- before-release, to the beginning of the delivery pipeline, being a part of all steps in the process. This has major benefits for digital products of all kinds, but it can really move the needle for healthcare companies.

Steps for turning your healthcare applications into brand-building engines

We hear often from healthcare clients that they have launched an app for their patients, but aren’t seeing the business benefits they expected-especially ROI.

While measuring return on investment is a good metric for established products and services, it doesn’t always make sense for digital experiences, especially when those experiences are brand new. According to Geoffrey Moore, it can take most digital products two to five years to realize revenue, so it’s impractical to evaluate the success of your app by a unit of measure that doesn’t even exist yet. …

Early in 2020, I got the opportunity to work for our global fashion retailer client on their flagship e-commerce site. Following from the design system we had created together, our client was overhauling their site to implement the DS and a series of new features.

I jumped at the opportunity to work in Tokyo, and bring value to an organization I loved as a customer. I was able to stay in Tokyo for three months-but the pandemic cut my six-month work placement in half. Though my time there was short, I learned a lot about creating value as a product…

While plenty of articles about the new business ecosystem have focused on creating digital systems for products or platforms, the ecosystem concept can be applied to any number of industries where relying on partnerships is the norm.

As consultants, our goal is to deliver and evolve experiences in the marketplace. However, Rangle has never been about simply creating the technology and applications our clients need, then handing them over with little communication. …

While most enterprise organizations know that change is the only constant, many find themselves falling behind as they struggle to adapt to technological advancements that are changing the digital landscape in an exponential way.

Some might say that executives in the 20th century were lucky. They could expect the rate of technological change to be somewhat linear, while 21st century execs no longer have that luxury. In fact, according to Ray Kurzweil’s Law of Accelerating Returns, leaders should expect the rate of technologically driven change to double every ten years, creating a widening the divide between digital leaders and laggards.

Healthcare is one of the most heavily-regulated industries in the world-and with good reason. Regulatory and compliance standards ensure the ongoing health and safety of patients across the globe.

However, sacrificing speed-to-market is rarely an option. There’s no better example than the fast-paced development and distribution of the COVID-19 vaccines over the past few months. Leading pharmaceutical companies and university research laboratories worked tirelessly to make vaccines available as early as possible. …


If teams aren’t purposeful about the way they work together, the default is always naturally going to be waterfall.

When it comes to building the best digital products and experiences, design and development teams need to work together in way that allows them to drive meaningful impact. A team that works together cross-functionally will drive exponentially more value than a single domain ever can. However many organizations struggle with putting this insight into practice. Why is it so hard to get development and design to work together? There’s a few reasons. For starters:

Design was never taught to be Agile and agile wasn’t designed for Designers.

You can’t…

AngularJS will no longer be supported as of December 2021.

For those still using the JavaScript framework, it’s time to migrate your frontend to the modern Angular 11+, in order to avoid security risks and browser compatibility issues once the end-of-life date approaches.

However, the work involved in this migration is more than a few simple updates-but that doesn’t mean it can’t be done, or that companies should stall their migration any longer than necessary. The effort involved will be closer to a replatform than a migration. Why? …

Legacy systems are often cited as one of the top barriers to digital transformation success.

While enterprises pour millions into digital transformation and innovation initiatives, many find the commercial impact is missing while they remain tied to their aging legacy systems.

Leaders need to develop a modernization strategy for their systems that focuses on improving them and creating near-term customer value and business benefits-but getting organizational buy-in for even incremental changes can be challenging, since legacy systems come with more baggage than just outdated technology. …
