AR / VR Applications

AR/VR is extensively used in gaming, education, entertainment, healthcare, hitech shop displays and employee training etc.

VR can be implemented in manufacturing processes, fashion, art, construction, social media and industrial design.

AR is designed to provide live view by adding digital elements on a smartphone for example : Pokemon Go and Snapchat Lenses.

VR is designed to cut you off from the surroundings or physical world by implementing a complete immersion experience.

Unity Game Engine is the best choice for making VR & AR applications as the designing is hard. 

AR/VR can be applied in various sectors these days and form a bridge between physical and digital arena :

  • Retail
  • Education
  • Medical Training
  • Design Modelling
  • Field Service
  • Business Logistics
  • Repair & Maintenance
  • Tourism Industry

Android Devices must install Android 7.0 Nougat to get compatible AR. AR has a wide scope in medical training and ranges from MRI to complex surgery. In foreign Universities students are introduced with ins and outs of anatomy using AR glasses by implementing real world settings.

There are 500 millions devices which enable AR software and 200 Google AR Apps in the iOS App store. The market of AR is exploring avenues with a rise to grow in billions in coming years.

AR uses sensors, camera, GPS, accelerometers, gyroscopes, RFID, Compasses, wireless, microphones, stylus, gloves, touch screens and gesture devices.

Unity Game Development

It is a cross-sectional game engine platform that is developed by Unity Technologies. The game engine is responsive not only in developing tools but also in making it easy for the developers to buy tools. If one is trying to develop a simple game, unity game engine is the best option for the same. It arranges and manipulate the stuff in its own way by using certain plugins.

Unity game engine is not free of cost and does not require any amount sharing but is free to distribute applications. It adhere to C# Programming language in two main areas: logix and syntax. Ample of tools are available that can be used to create games without any coding or with small fraction of coding. Unity – The best Engine for mobile

It is a user-friendly game engine with limitations of bad programming practices. In Unity, UI tools are flexible but not applied to each and every project. It is a non- universal game engine. In contrast Unreal engine and Unity have 3D abilities but Unreal is the best version in terms of graphic designing. If we compare the 2D aspect, Unity is at broader Unity and tool-set. Unity 3D is the best game engine with the highest standards when compared with 2D. In terms of modelling and animation IMO Blender is the perfect choice instead of Unity.

Language Used in Unity :

C#(C-sharp) is the most common language used but not limited to and can incorporate language that are object -oriented scripting languages with syntax, part of speech, primary parts like functions, variables and classes.

C++ is easier to work by wrapping it in a DDL and following instructions with Unity Pro License. C++ controls hardware on PC and server. 

By default C# and JavaScript is used as a scripting language  in Unity. Python is not suitable for Unity

Unity 5 :

It empowers developers, studios and dreamers to make a powerful feature that can be found in Unity engine like profiler, Render-to-Texture, Occlusion Culling and Post Processing Effects. Unity 5 Personal edition is a free solution.

Coding in Unity Engine :

  • Hybrid Mobile Applications – They are built with CSS, JavaScript and HTML5 and compiled as app installation packages. It works on web containers helpful in providing browser runtime and a bridge for native APIs. Useful in sharing code base between web and mobile apps but as compared to native it is lower in performance
  • Windows Mobile Applications – PWAs offer app development by skipping app installations and app store delivery. It utilizes browser abilities like running background processes, working offline etc. It can be accessed through URL and no installation would be required with a limited support of native features. Same app is available on both the platform -web and mobile

CLOUD MIGRATION STRATEGIES

JUST AN INTRODUCTION 

It is a process of migrating digital assets (applications, data, IT resources and workloads) from local server to cloud server. It is useful in migrating and keeping data in the most efficient IT environment in terms of security, cost and performance.  Cloud migration process will take nearly 1-2 months based on the document and email communications.

As per a recent index in 2021, 94% of workloads will run on cloud environments. Four main types of cloud migrations are lift and shift, shift to Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), application replatforming and refactoring. Similarly, Infrastructure -as-a-service (IaaS) is also a type of cloud migration service that provides storage, on-demand networking on a paid basis. Platform-as-a-service (PaaS) and serverless are other two types along with the above mentioned one. 

Types Of Cloud Migration Strategies :

  • Application Rehosting
  • Application Repurchasing
  • Application Replatforming
  • Application Refactoring
  • Application Retaining
  • Application Retiring
