Three Capabilities to Consider When Selecting a Modern Enterprise Mobile Platform


Are you struggling to keep up with the demand for mobile apps from your company’s business units? Is it nearly impossible to hire mobile developers as soon as you receive requests? You’re not alone. Your business needs a modern mobile platform – one designed for the rapid innovation cycles that are typical in mobile. What should you look for in a modern mobile platform? I’d like to share three must-haves for a mobile platform that are often overlooked and can make a significant difference in terms of your company’s ability to excel in mobile. Here are three capabilities developers should look for when choosing an app development platform for customized applications:

Sharing a URL

Believe it or not, onboarding developers is as easy as sharing a URL. Look for a platform that’s cloud-based to avoid the hassle of installing or maintaining infrastructure for each individual developer. The cloud-based approach also enables your company to have a centrally managed system with a single integration effort and accessibility to every employee, customer or partner.

A Short Learning Curve

Like anything else, the best way to ensure adoption is to improve usability. Utilizing visual integrated development environments (IDE), the learning curve for developers becomes much shorter. It’s important to ensure that it’s easy to find resources to staff the development efforts of each person.

Faster and Cheaper

What makes app development efficient? Fast time to market and lower cost. Find out if your app dev platform offers a rapid development approach and support for iOS, Android, Windows Phone (News - Alert) and mobile Web. Not only will this significantly speed up the time to market, it will lower costs significantly.

Using these three capabilities as guidelines, your business ecosystem could grow into the hundreds with each employee, customer and partner delivering new revenue through a customized mobile app. How do you qualify your mobile app development platform? Which solutions have been the most successful?
