“Mobile-first” strategies are gradually reshaping the whole Application Development Lifecycle in the enterprise, moving focus on a previously “neglected” factor: velocity.
We not only want our apps to look beautiful, have powerful features and perform fast; we also want them developed fast. Taking into account the complexity of an enterprise-grade mobile app as well as the fragmentation of available mobile app development technologies, it is worth examining which of these technologies are the easiest to use and, hence, result in high application development velocity.
To simplify discussions we have broken down mobile app development into a series of key areas. For each one we will identify the available options and highlight the easiest for each.
- Mobile Application Development Environments/Platforms
- Types of Mobile application integration
- Mobile data synchronization
- Push notification services
- Mobile Analytics
- Enterprise security
