Eight keys to successful enterprise mobile app development
Sponsored by IBM
This chapter is included in the Intro to enterprise mobile app development E-Book.
When developers build enterprise mobile apps, they shouldn't be tempted to use the quickest or cheapest method to get the app to users. Instead, companies and developers should consider eight key parts of successful mobile apps: users, purpose, devices, integration, experience, data, security and quality assurance. To that end, developers must know their users' jobs, devices, workflows, wants and needs to make sure the time and money they put into building an enterprise mobile application is worth it.
Users want apps that are intuitive and will help them get their jobs done, so companies can't deliver sub-par applications. And the best mobile apps don't recreate existing processes for new form factors. They make existing workflows more efficient and create new ways to improve productivity. There's a lot to know about successful mobile app development, but this chapter has you covered.
