How to build Enterprise Mobile App in 24 hours?

Enterprise Mobility Scenario:

enterprise mobility uniphoreMobile business apps market is set to reach $53bn in 2017, says a leading market research firm. It is also predicted that 200 million mobile workers will use at least one business-focused app this year. Over the next few years, both the number of mobile workers using enterprise mobile apps and the number of apps available will grow rapidly.

Factors to consider before you build Enterprise Mobile App: 

While consumer apps are built on cutting edge technologies and provide best-in-class GUI, negligible latency, multiple hardware integration features, enterprises apps tend to be slightly sluggish!  In their defense, enterprises are weighed down by these factors:

  • Integration with multiple corporate back end systems is never easy – as they say, no chain is stronger than the weakest link.  One cloggy system can potentially bring down the whole ecosystem.
  • Offline functionality – be it a senior executive flying in a plane or a travelling field sales person in remote location, we have enough scenarios where the data connectivity does not exist.
  • Business functions – each functional areas will have their own requirement and the complexity keeps increasing with addition of newer scenarios
  • Security – as much as BYOD is consumer friendly, it is also a nightmare for IT personnel. Impact of lost devices, employee attrition, identity theft is very high. While most of the data & applications in laptops can be controlled through software like Microsoft’s Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS), enterprise mobility is a different world.   The onset of personal devices usage in workplace make it complicated to weed out malicious code and “containerize” content
  • Device – plethora of devices, vendors, form factors, Operating Systems (not to mention versions), configurations (RAM/CPU) doesn’t help to “build once, deploy anywhere, run anytime” unless you have enterprise app store capabilities
  • Time to market – in a fast paced world, smart mobile users are so used to “Download, Install & Run” in a matter of few seconds without any glitches.  Employees and customers expect the same pace for all enterprise software as well – this gives a very small window for the development lifecycle.
