2017 Mobile App Development Predictions

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.”
Gartner analysts predict that in response, enterprises will expand their use of mobile development tools and move to establish dedicated DevOps teams.
