Right now just about everyone wants to know what’s coming down the pike in the enterprise mobility industry. The answer, as evidenced in a recent report from CDW, is that there is a tidal wave of custom-built mobile applications currently in the planning or development process.
As the study shows, 72 percent of businesses plan to continue investing in custom mobile applications for smartphones and tablets in the future, with 42 percent planning to do so in the next year.
Why are so many businesses considering investing in custom mobile applications? It’s simple: Because building proprietary mobile solutions can increase productivity, facilitate improved remote working experiences and give team members direct access to data where and when they need it.
The only caveat is that to be at all valuable, applications need to work properly—all the time If your applications are unreliable, meaning they are prone to crashing, are slow or riddled with software bugs, they will add little value to your business. As the study shows, 34 percent of businesses currently face challenges related to customer support when deploying custom mobile applications. Other leading challenges mentioned include integrating applications with existing network services and supporting a variety of mobile platforms.
