What’s with the Dearth of Enterprise Apps?

Today, there’s no lack of mobile devices as such in enterprises however there is quite a shortage of apps with complete enterprise capabilities. In spite of the productivity and efficiency gains that could be realized by supporting the devices and ways of working that employee, only a few dedicated mobile apps are available for their employees.

Data is one of the most valuable assets in any organization, and mobile is simply a way to put data to use. This post hosts a few highlights like FIPS certification for government use, creating a team-focused app development server, and the incredible adoption of  iOS 7 and its enterprise-focused features.

Enterprise Mobile Apps Are Set to Explode

Did you know that only 15 % of mobile developers are targeting this audience? When employees are consistently demanding better user experiences in the tools they use for work, developers still consider quicker path to monetization, over the long run the enterprise market offers a much larger opportunity. In 2013, about 900,000 of the world’s 2.3 million mobile developers were primarily targeting the business world.

Let’s see the function of Apple Pay introduced very recently by the company. It has got many features to help companies strive to be the first to provide this functionality to their customers. With Apple Pay, it is possible to create intuitive and “surprisingly well-designed” consumer app that offers customers helpful information like transaction details and rewards points. Also, it is easier for customers to spot and address fraudulent charges, and to connect their Capital One credit cards to Apple Pay to quickly visualize purchases made in this manner.

There is more emphasis on custom mobile apps, robust enterprise app stores and app management capabilities as well as offering bring-your-own-device (BYOD) to improve customer service and general safety. The impact of mobile apps on business is as significant and fundamental as it is on consumers more secure, robust and capable of linking to back-office databases and repositories. 

Despite deploying so many potent tools, the challenges still remain.
