Facts About The Future Of Enterprise Mobile Apps You Need To Know

  1. 1. Facts About The Future Of ENTERPRISE MOBILE APPS You Need To Know
  2. 2. As Per The Gartner Report:
  3. 3. By the end of 2017, market demand for mobile app development services will grow at least five times faster than internal IT organizations' capacity to deliver them, according to Gartner, Inc. Gartner forecasts mobile phone sales will reach 2.1 billion units by 2019, which will fuel demand for apps in the enterprise that meet the high performance and usability of consumer apps. “ ”
  4. 4. Top 4 Of
  5. 5. 1. Companies Will Create More Than One App • We are already observing among our customers that they are generally producing more than one app. On average, our clients have created around 4 apps each in the past 6 months. As more tools such as Fliplet emerge which empower companies to create apps affordably, we predict that companies will continue to create more and more apps.
  6. 6. 2. All Areas Of A Business Will Need Mobile Apps • Likewise, app creation is going to spread across all departments of companies. Although, at the moment, certain types of apps are more popular than others, we are beginning to see trends towards app creation from a variety of departments, such as training and HR. • Users are coming up with innovative ways to present their information, products and services.
  7. 7. 3. “I Need To Create An App” Will Become The New “I Need To Have a Mobile”. A Common Thing to ask for! • Not only will a wide range of departments create mobile apps, but each department will also create more than one app. This is part of a trend to create apps that replace regular processes such as making a 5 minute presentation. • App creation becomes easier and cheaper, it will actually be more convenient to, for instance, create reports on apps rather than on PowerPoint. So, creating an app will become something as common as creating a new document or presentation.
  8. 8. 4. The Following Kinds Of Apps Will Take Off In The Near Future: • Internal Communications • Sales Support • Training
  9. 9. • Internal communications apps are also going to increase in popularity. At their core, these apps are an updated version of the Intranet. • The Intranet never really worked, because it couldn’t be accessed remotely, it was too complicated and decentralized and it didn’t work offline Shifting all the information from the Intranet to our smartphones is going to dramatically increase our ability to be productive. • Internal communication apps can also be used as an alternative to email, by allowing you to instantly communicate with your team wherever you are. Internal Communications
  10. 10. Sales Support • Sales support apps are currently the most popular types of enterprise apps. They enable you to use mobile devices to show your products or services to customers in an easy and visually engaging way. • Anyone who still uses print sales brochures is very much behind the times; showing information on a computer has become the new norm.
  11. 11. Training • Training apps are going to explode; what company doesn’t want to deliver more training to their staff? • And what a perfect way, because if your staff can do the training while they’re away from the office, it reduces distractions, uses dead time more efficiently and means that they’re expanding their knowledge all the while.
  12. 12. How to Deliver Demand For Enterprise Mobile Apps Is Expected To Grow At Least Five Times Faster Than Internal IT Organizations’ Capacity To Deliver Them.
  13. 13. 1) Prioritize App Development • Mobile development teams are overstretched and have difficulty effectively delivering the growing number of mobile apps in their queues. The result is apps being built on a first- come, first-served basis, with the line of business making the most noise having its needs met first. This lack of value- driven prioritization leads to inefficient use of IT resources and a degradation in the quality of apps delivered.
  14. 14. • According to Gartner analysts, mobile development teams need to formulate a process of mobile app prioritization that involves understanding the needs of business stakeholders. This will be a key factor in defining common criteria for evaluating mobile app projects.
  15. 15. 2) Adopt A Bimodal IT Approach • Integration is often the largest part of the effort of delivering an enterprise mobile app, with many app development teams underestimating the time and resources required for integration during the planning stage of the traditional waterfall methodology they are following. • Gartner believes organizations need to replace this traditional IT development approach with a bimodal strategic approach that supports innovation and agility to deliver apps more efficiently and quickly.
  16. 16. • Bimodal approaches consist of two models: • Mode 1 drives the creation of stable infrastructure and APIs to allow apps to retrieve and deliver data to back-end systems without impacting those enterprise applications. • Mode 2 uses high-productivity, agile approaches to quickly deliver front-end app features required by the business.
  17. 17. 3) Use Rapid Mobile App Development (RMAD) Tools • Using development tools that can produce apps more rapidly is crucial for enterprises to help bridge the gap between mobile app demand and supply. • Significant innovation is driving this market and replacing traditional coding approaches, such as native development tools, with more effective RMAD tools. There are many approaches to RMAD, including drag-and-drop codeless tools, code generation and orchestration, model- driven development, virtualization, forms construction, and others.
  18. 18. • These approaches are allowing those with no programming skills or coding ability, such as people in business roles, to rapidly assemble mobile app prototypes and continuously iterate on these designs.
  19. 19. 4) Adopt A Mixed-sourcing Approach • Organizations want to have full control over their mobile app development initiatives, however, maintaining a pure in- house development environment is difficult to achieve given mobile is a relatively new competency to many developers. It entails many complexities and specific activities, such as • UX Design • Psychology • Cellular Coverage Testing
  20. 20. • Gartner believes organizations will improve their in-house mobile development skills over time, but currently only 26 percent of organizations are adopting an in-house-only development approach, while 55 percent are successfully delivering apps using mixed sourcing.
