Enterprises have taken up the mobile application development seriously and more and more enterprises are looking at custom mobile application development as a solution for real time data availability, anywhere and anytime. These days the adoption of SaaS applications are increasing, the broad consumer adoption of smart phones and tablets as well as other connected specialized devices are a part of internet, is driving enterprises to accelerate their mobile enterprise application strategies. The Mobile Application Development can provide simple and user-centric functionality, clean look and feel, simple business models and interface with other applications and data through well-defined APIs.
In this article, let’s see how the mobile software can automate the business processes and help the enterprises to make informed decisions.
Select the right business model to monetize the application
Many mobile application development companies are experimenting with a variety of business models such as advertising-driven, mcommerce etc. The third-party mobile enterprise application providers will have to go through a similar experimentation phase for the applications they introduce to the market. Deciding on the business models can help the mobile enterprise application development companies to carry on with the design and development process and consider whether the resulting application will be native, hybrid or web-based.
Determine the type of application to be build (native, cloud or web-based)
The choice to develop a mobile application that runs native on the device or web-based using an HTML5 UI or a cloud-based will continue to rage for a while. The mobile application developers can opt for a native application when a response speed is important, the desired user experience is not supported by the HTML5 or the application is expected to operate in environments with infrequent or no connectivity, low bandwidth etc. Some native applications are not 100% self-contained on the device but may also need to use a cloud in order to access the data to accomplish a particular task.
There are also some good reasons to develop a web-based mobile application including when a mobile application is being quickly prototyped, is not clear which implementation type will best serve the application’s users, the application needs to run on a variety of mobile OS or trying to mobilize an existing third-party enterprise application etc.
Provide the right user experience
To build an enterprise application, the developers have to pay an utmost attention to the business logic and the database structure. As the functionality of an application is very important, the user experience is as important across all the mobile devices on which the application will be used regardless of the screen size, operating system etc. Since the application users are likely to use multiple mobile devices in addition to their desktop computers, the right user experience will mobilize an enterprise process and may be implemented over more than one application. For instance, the process of field workforce management can be broken down into three parts: personal scheduling, form filling for data collection and work-order completion.
Above are some of the important points, the enterprise application developers have to consider in order to design, implement and distribute the appropriate business model. As the enterprises are adopting mobility we will see the emergence of third-party application leaders that will dominance the traditional enterprise infrastructure providers to develop first-class enterprise applications.
