An Enterprise Mobile App falls into a dynamic eco-system where users have to abide to more upgrades and changes as an when new technologies arrive. Most of the time there is no strategy and businesses work in silos creating too many apps,which have a short shelf life. 30% of enterprise mobile apps launched in last 12-13 months have failed according to IDC. So when do you know that your Enterprise Mobile Application has failed?
*1. Failed transactions and security breach
Failed transactions where mobile applications that have access to enterprise assets and business functions but data is not wiped correctly from handset or important information can be leaked out
*2. Low Tolerance for clunky interfaces
Engaging Mobile users for more than 10 secs due to poor user interface is proving to be a challenge. Slow UX as a result of poor performance and memory usage. Same user experience is not provided for all the devices.
*3. Tightly Coupled App
Any single change in business logic, triggers a development effort for app and an upgrade effort for user. Causing huge cost, time and adoption implications.
*4. Functionality Issues
Mobile apps are not out of the store tools, but require proper planning and are tailor made solutions to serve various functions across the business. Your app fails to take advantage of mobile’s real time geo location features and scale across various departments/geographies of your organization, and serves as mere brochure than a real time interactive tool.
*5. Lost track on TCO
Burning too much money to upgrade apps due to change in business logic, new OS updates for manufactures. Increasing TCO with the bid to stay relevant with upcoming technology and devices – upgrades, multiple app development, and integration with multiple internal systems
In order to achieve success in the mobile app development, enterprises should take a holistic approach by leveraging cloud technology over classic design tools.The cloud based app solution can be deployed easily and seamlessly integrate with the enterprises current systems.
