Cutting Stress Through Efficient Application Management
They say technology fixes as many problems as it creates. There’s a truth to this. Even the finest technological innovations don’t actually curtail workload, they just reapportion it elsewhere. Take cars, for instance. Sure, they save you time and hassle, but they cost you quite a bit to maintain, and you’ve got the danger of crazy drivers.
So even though you’re getting somewhere fast, and the world opens up, you’re not getting requisite exercise and your life is in greater danger. Plus, you depend on the car more; so if it breaks down, you’re really in the lurch. And then there’s the bureaucratic hassle you have to deal with.
Well, in many ways, smartphone technology innovations come with the same problems. Many mobile devices and innovations which utilize IoT (Internet of Things) tech, or the cloud in general, are like this as well. Certainly they fix a lot of problems, certainly they make a lot of operations less expensive than they could be, but there are drawbacks.
While cloud computing has a host of applications businesses can put to use, and can even act as a host for your own business’s mobile application, you can’t just set it up and leave it. It’s like a top. Once you give that top a spin, it’ll stay balanced for a while, but eventually it starts to wobble, and left alone it will fall over.
Bugs In The Code
Your applications will have bugs. They’re going to get “wonky”, you might say. They’ve been designed by people, and people use them. You’re going to have instances where traffic increases beyond previous thresholds and the app can’t handle it. You’re going to have instances where something designed to work one way won’t work as it should.
Catching and overcoming all these things requires proper logging. With the right logging, you’re able to see where the trouble is, what caused it, and why. Then you’re able to correct it
Stackify.com offers this advice on how to catch all C# exceptions: “The .NET Framework provides a couple events that can be used to catch unhandled exceptions. You only need to register for these events once in your code when your application starts up.” This can save you a lot of time and effort when maintaining apps.
Saving time and energy in maintaining your technological solutions is what will prove ultimately beneficial to your mental health. When you’re constantly “under the gun”, you tend to get worn down. The more tired you are, the more thinly you’re spread, the more apt you are to make errors which compound on themselves.
Minimizing Stress And Losses
It’s essential to get a logging framework in place so that you can minimize losses and stress involved in app maintenance. The better the log, the better your apps run. The better your apps run, the more effective they are. This contributes to target market growth and increasing profit margins, facilitating outward expansion.
Making more money cost-effectively is definitely good for your mental health, and the right logging solutions can help your small to medium-sized business expand operations in this way. The more hassle you can eliminate, the better. Applications solve many marketing problems, but their drawbacks come in the form of bugs.
Still, when you get right down to it, that’s a fairly small drawback when taken against the grand scheme of things. So be savvy about the technology solutions available to you, and upgrade as necessary; just be sure to round such upgrades out with the proper support solutions.
