Why are enterprise apps and the developer community running as parallel lines?

2014 can be called the Year of the Enterprise. With the explosion of the mobility movement and a positive reception of BYOD, it can be safely said that Enterprise apps today are as much, if not more, in demand as consumer apps. However there is a huge disparity in the demand for enterprise mobile apps and the developers who make these apps. A recent survey by Vision Mobile saw that only 16% of developers globally are developing Enterprise Mobile Apps despite the Enterprise market being more lucrative. According to this study 2 out of 3 developers, i.e. almost 67%, are concentrated in building consumer apps despite the fact that enterprise apps developers are likely to earn almost 3 times more.

TABit: The little mobile monster

Which phone do you own? The answer to that would only be valid a few months from now. Mobile devices are the party wear of this generation: you buy one for as long as it is ‘trendy’ and dispense it off as fast as it came in after the next advertisement is out. Every manufacturer out there knows that the time elapsed between the device going off the shelf and into the trash-can is diminishing. This is one scenario that TABit seeks to leverage.

Innovation: Both Disruptive and Adaptive

The stories of ‘the father of automobiles’, where he has a more far-reaching vision than ‘faster horses’, has been some of our first anecdotal trysts with innovation. Thinking beyond just a bunch of ticked-off questions on a form, adding empathy to the mix and creating something disruptive are catching on as tenets of a well innovated project. From the mysticism that surrounded the world of innovation ( furthered to some extent by Steve Jobs ‘misfits, rebels’ speech ) we have come a long way in crafting out the tenets as outlined above with parameters that can guide people and projects.

How secure is the Enterprise Mobility world?

Work today is moving far from the traditional concepts that defined it. With the rise of the mobile era, companies today are veering towards flexible working arrangements that enable employees to complete their tasks with any convenient device. This mobility however, gives rise to some challenges that IT departments are addressing constantly. Mobile Device Management, Mobile Application Management and Mobile Content Management and security are some key areas of focus. The IT departments also needs to figure out the type of applications they need to develop to cater to this mobile workforce. With an enormously varied enterprise software landscape, IT managers have to identify new ways of developing enterprise apps that can integrate with internal systems. Organizations also have to look beyond the traditional email and rewire their organizations to support enterprise mobility so that employees can stay connected and complete tasks irrespective of where they physically are. Adoption of enterprise mobility will also ensure higher employee productivity and lower overhead costs. Research firmly suggests that enterprise apps are here to stay. Companies just need to ensure that they strike the right balance while adopting an enterprise mobility strategy by evaluating and understanding how employees or customers want to use it and identify ways in which this can be introduced within the organization.
