  2. 2. “There is no one future state with mobile technology: As soon as one aspect stabilizes, another enters a phase of radical change. The development target is no longer a device, but a loosely-connected ecosystem of devices and services centered on a user experience.” – GARTNER ”THE FUTURE OF MOBILE APPS ANDTHEIR DEVELOPMENT”, OCT. 2014.

  10. 10. Poor data access is throttling mobile innovation 27.6% 72.4% DISAGREE AGREE Do you agree or disagree with the following statement: “Getting mobile- optimized access to data is becoming the most challenging aspect in building great app experiences, quickly.” APPCELERATOR / IDC Q3 2015 MOBILE TRENDS REPORT n = 5,778 mobile developers

  12. 12. THE NEW MOBILE STACK
  13. 13. Traits of API-first Organizations A common, standardized tier that allows: Easy discovery of existing APIs Ease of API development; minimize bureaucracy & command- and-control Using analytics to improve the API “inventory”

  15. 15. Traits of API-first Organizations A common, standardized tier that allows: Easy discovery of existing APIs Ease of API development; minimize bureaucracy & command- and-control A soup-to-nuts analytics view which encompasses app usage, lifecycle metrics and API consumption

  20. 20. APIs enable a new IT innovation model PRESENT: “FREE-FOR-ALL” Nominal central control BYOD/A, rise of shadow IT Silos, inevitable redundancies Variable results (usability, security, performance, etc.) FUTURE: “INNOVATION EXCHANGE” Nimble and specialized, fit for purpose Looser coupling, higher cohesion Expanded ecosystem = more innovation New market opportunities
