With many CIOs frustrated by the time it takes to develop a single app, 63 percent say they’ll be turning to cloud solutions to address their needs.
More than half (56 percent) of companies and CIOs spend between seven months and one year building a single app, and nearly 20 percent spend more than $500,000 on the development of each app, according to a report from Kinvey.Fully half of the respondents said they think the process takes too long, with 24 percent citing the app development process as a source of frustration.Additional reasons contributing to chief operating officers’ (CIOs) inability to advance their mobile strategy were 53 percent who claim their infrastructure was built for Web apps and not mobile apps, half who don’t have the right tools and skills in-house and around two-thirds (67 percent) who cited lack of budget.With 71 percent of app development currently led by product lines or functions—such as marketing, sales, etc.–rather than enterprise IT, businesses face a future of skyrocketing costs and unrealized mobile potential, the report warned.
Sridhar explained that really advanced businesses will use mobile to create brand new business processes that drive new revenue streams or cut costs dramatically.”Some retailers, for example, are using beacons in-store to push contextually relevant information, such as product sales, related accessories, etc., to their customers in real time,” he said. “These benefits aren’t just limited to retail–mobile can improve productivity across a variety of industries from manufacturing to health care.”With so many CIOs frustrated by the time it takes to develop a single app, 63 percent say they’ll be turning to cloud solutions to address their needs.
Looking around for a robust enterprise mobility platform that would offer a template driven, scalable and rapid option to port your enterprise mobile option might be one of the best scenario to combat this. Mobien’s enterprise mobile application platform, iNotify, just offers the same.
