Looking ahead to 2017, all signals indicate that the need for apps that work on business devices will only increase. Mobility will no longer be a new initiative or project, but a daily routine across the business, as consumers, partners and employees demand mobile solutions for their daily business interactions and workflows.
Despite a “mobile as usual” approach, many companies still feel growing pains as they go mobile. The new Gartner report “Predicts 2017: Mobile Apps and Their Development” expects that 70% of software interactions in enterprises will be on mobile devices by 2022. As users favor mobile devices, the preference for task-focused mobile experiences will rule the day. Organizations and development teams will need to become more agile to respond to evolving mobile requirements:
- “By 2020, over 50% of consumer mobile interactions will be in contextualized, "hyperpersonal" experiences based on past behavior and current, real-time behavior.”
- “By 2021, 50% of apps will trigger events for users, thereby making them more efficient.”
