Kony Development Cloud

Improve performance while the app is in production. The init app development in planning, the testing stage is not an ideal scenario to use KDC yet.

Zeplin

Zeplin is, overall, really great for what it’s known for: design handoffs to development teams. Thus, it’s an excellent tool for scenarios in which the design and development teams do not work very closely. Because it allows users to use the tool on various platforms, it’s also great for teams in which there are in-house and remote (or contract) staff working on a single project. The tool is pretty lightweight once users are on-boarded, so it’s also great for larger teams. However, it can take significant time to onboard people to it, so it might not be great for more rushed projects. It also doesn’t have a ton of functionality beyond supporting design handoffs, so one might choose a more inclusive tool, such as Figma, to support more steps in the design process. Finally, Zeplin is costly and its rates are pretty inflexible, so this might not be the most ideal tool for more cash-strapped teams who want to use Zeplin for more than one project at a time.

Pros

Kony Development Cloud

  • Cross-platform mobile development - we used this for developing the app on a native platform (which could be iOS, Android). Kony offers tools that are useful because they decrease costs and increase the speed at which apps are developed. In addition, cross-platform mobile development tools are generally quite simple to use as they are based off of the common languages for scripting, including CSS, HTML, and JavaScript. It has become easy to find resources with the skill set especially because this is based out of common languages.
  • In Kony mobility platform Visualizer makes app development quick and easy. Tons of documentation online.
  • Used Kony to develop an amazing app that serves our customers well. WYSIWYG interface is great for building interfaces quickly. Build and test quickly for many different targets.

  • Great user experience in terms of the product itself and a great value for your money
  • Automatically generates CSS for web designs which is AMAZING!

Cons

Kony Development Cloud

  • Manuals or instructions need to be streamlined with its high pricing.
  • It's a very intricate platform. It only performs moderately while the app is currently in operation.

Zeplin

  • It would be better if it has a dedicated web application
  • It's not the easiest tool to learn and start working with
  • It would be awesome if it had more features turning it into an all-around tool for mockups and prototypes

Zeplin is not a fully functional prototyping software system, but having the ability to add notes to help explain what actions are expected allows me to rate it high.

Zeplin has classic support with a chat from the website. It's working fine, and we're also getting the support needed when needed. However, Zeplin is very good at closing the incidents and moving on. It was a while ago we had a case with their support so that it might have improved since then.

Alternatives Considered

Kony Development Cloud

We evaluated variety of platforms like Xamarin, Sencha, PhoneGap. When we were initially evaluating Xamarin, it was not Microsoft and so the releases and features were not very streamlined. Also licensing was a issue with that.Sencha was a very attractive cross mobile platform but was expensive. Just for handful of developers price was high. Ours is big enterprise so licensing costs became huge.PhoneGap is based out of open source Apache Cordova project and is completely free to use, which goes some way to explain its popularity. The enterprise version boasts marketing features via Adobe’s Marketing Cloud, so when it launches it will probably be monetized.Comparing with the features platform has to offer and the price tag attached to it, we narrowed down to using Kony.

Zeplin

Zeplin is great to inspect and share user interfaces, specifications and assets, perfect for developers. Tools like InVision and Marvel are much better to create prototypes for both developers, coworkers and even stakeholders, but they don't have this kind of feature (inspection) as Zeplin does.So each of them can be used for different purposes, offering different approaches to share and interact with layouts for apps and websites.

Return on Investment

Kony Development Cloud

  • Positive on ROI. I'm constantly utilizing Kony since it's a robust tool capable of publishing.
  • It also shares prototype creations of apps in a highly intuitive and customizable environment. It provides a preview of apps in real-time. Collaboration is seamless. Important functionality includes smartphone features (without any written code involved) and accessibility to a browser, maps, and SMS.
  • Trying to understand the user manual can be challenging since there are way too many features available. All of them aren't really necessary for beginners. And they've yet to offer them in a "phased" approach.

Zeplin

  • Much smoother hand offs between UX design / content strategy / product and the devs, putting all necessary design info in the same place as specs and code snippets.
  • The Slack integration is really handy and makes it faster and easy to see updates / comments in real time.
  • Zeplin improves communication between the design and development teams, allowing them to more easily "speak the same language" when working on a new feature.
