To meet this rising demand, most B2B enterprises have put together an in-house development initiative to ensure their mobile apps are custom built with the organizations IT environment, workflows and users in mind. However, with the need for new apps, features and integrations continuing to mount, these development teams are finding it difficult to keep up.
Are consumer and enterprise app development so different? Sure, studies show that consumer apps dominate the development market; however, employees are consumers, too.
Mobile technologies have taken the business world by storm. In fact, studies show that 70% of companies are embracing mobility and building out their own custom solutions. Have you delayed your own app development projects for cost or security concerns? If so it’s time to get started. According to new research released by IDC, 2015 may just go down in the books as the Year of the Enterprise App and here’s why:
Embracing mobile trends is no longer an option for enterprises – it’s a requirement. However, mobile strategies and BYOD policies can’t prove their value to businesses without powerful, productive and innovative mobile apps. While most companies allow employees to download apps and use them for business, many are considering customized solutions to better deliver against key business objectives.
Today’s enterprise app development teams couldn’t be busier. They’re working hard to solve the challenges their companies’ face – making employees more productive, finding new ways to engage with customers, even developing new sales models. But what of their challenges?
“There are two types of companies: those that have been hacked, and those that will be. And even they are converging into one category: those that have been hacked, and those that will be again.” – Former FBI Director, Robert S. Mueller, III
Are security concerns preventing you from delivering the apps your company needs to enhance productivity in your mobile workforce?
Smartphones and tablets aren’t just consumer toys anymore. Mobile devices are changing the way the business world works at a fundamental level. If your employees can work anywhere at any time, you’ll start to see great productivity benefits. The world of enterprise mobility isn’t all fun and games, though. When you give employees access to sensitive data on their mobile devices, you’re opening your company up to serious potential threats.
If you spend enough time in this industry, the discussion of Hybrid vs Native Mobile App development will feel like a Light vs Dark side of the force type of issue. Truth is, there may not be a simple answer to what is necessarily right or wrong, but here is definitely a huge difference in terms of Rapid Development.
