At Ayoka, we understand the need to bridge the gap between the desktop enterprise environment and mobile accessibility. Developers are only now starting to shift their individual attention from the consumer to the enterprise, so prepare yourself for a mobile-based enterprise techspolsion!
It’s projected that, by 2018, the mobile enterprise application market will have doubled. The acceptance of tablets in the mobile enterprise movement is growing faster than any previous computing platform. They’re quickly becoming a staple due to their ability to easily access reports and documentation to carry out business tasks and enhance employee productivity. Processes that involve human interaction that require real-time accessibility will ultimately be the first to notice the productivity shift by being mobile accessible.
Custom applications for enterprise builds on your company’s unique needs, existing processes, and future goals. Cloud services such as document storage and sync, project management, social networking, and mobile access to tools like Microsoft Office, are becoming more secure and enterprise-grade functionalities are available for implementation now. The capabilities that your company will need to have a functional cross-platform solution towards mobile could span many different existing applications or could bring you to the conclusion that you need a single custom enterprise solution to simplify your employees’ and clients’ user experience and remove the multi-app limitations.
Your company’s choice to build a native application for your devices or a mobile accessible and responsive web application depends on your needs. Since each company has its own particular set of goals, there is no universal solution to the issue of responsive website vs native mobile app. In order to make a good decision for your company, as with many business decisions, learning more about your target audience is imperative. Consolidation and specialization of your company’s needs in one application instead of being spread among many different applications, will help to mitigate security risk and data errors.
