Future of Mobile Application (Apps) Development
2017 seems to be a very prolific year for the development of technological innovations. The new commercial space race, the creation of new devices of Virtual Reality and Augmented, the investigation of Artificial Intelligence are just some of the topics that will lead the agenda; but one industry will probably overshadow them all: that of mobile app development.
It is estimated that throughout the year will be recorded over 268 million downloads of apps worldwide, which in turn mean an income of approximately 77 billion dollars for the global industry. While this rough profit takes into account all sectors of mobile applications, certain areas show a tendency to grow and dominate the majority of the market.
Software distributors and android app developer have already thoroughly examined their audience, and know what needs to be covered and what fields to exploit. Throughout the year they will experiment with different solutions and proposals to satisfy their markets; and although each company will approach in its way, all will seek to cover the same points.
But more importantly, there is the development of new information security techniques. Technology companies handle large amounts of personal data from their users, and several times this information has been stolen from their servers or devices. The priority during 2017 will be to improve its security mechanisms.
Other dominant trends that can be expected during the year will be the implementation of systems of the Internet of Things, technology development tools that take location, and the increasing integration between mobile applications that can benefit from each other.
How to get the speed and agility mentioned? The answer is to apply the principles of “agile” (greater speed and flexibility in the delivery) to the development of mobile applications: the calls RMAD (Rapid Mobile Application Development Tool), whose advantages against the traditional MADP are the following:
- Speed and simplicity: They allow to create applications quickly and with simple tools: “as easy as creating a presentation through a typical office suite.” They also allow version changes to be made on the fly, updating the app in seconds.
- Reduced reliance on technology: Profiles with very technical skills in the development of mobile applications are not required. The different operational areas of companies (e.g., logistics, operations, sales, etc.) can be directly involved in the mobilization of their processes; adding (without the need to encode) functions such as geo location services, barcode reading, signature capture, etc.
- Ease of Management: Most iPhone app developer use their cloud from which the application is managed and deployed to all users. In this way, no new infrastructure is required (servers, VPNs, load balancers, etc.). They also offer the ability to work “on-line” and “off-line,” thus guaranteeing the integrity of transactions.
- Easy integration with client back-end: Using “out-of-the-box” connectors for specific application mobilization is an advantage over traditional custom client developments (accounting for between 50% and 75% of the final time and costs). Likewise, they have a very “closet fund” with applications already developed that can be reused as templates.
