More than 72% of enterprises have already started investing big time in BYOD for their employees in one way or the other.
In 2018, more than 50% of the world's employers will need BYOD. Hybrid enterprise apps are known to run in the form of an app but they're characteristically mobile websites. This helps limit the speed and cost of the mobile app development process.
As 2018 is just around the corner, let's have a look at the top 5 technology trends to expect in the enterprise mobile apps category during the year ahead.
1. Low-code development is the future
Low-code development intends to make it simpler to build mobile applications by eradicating as much of the hand-coding as feasible. Such initiatives are getting more and more significant as businesses have to develop applications to work across the board, over an array of devices, including smartphones.
There is such a widespread necessity for making unique software simpler.
Every enterprise app development company can thrive, provided they jump on the bandwagon and execute the low code model to good effect to provide a pleasant end-user experience.
2018 will witness aplenty of new kids on the block and the prospects seem promising for them, as well! That's because this model has catered to a long-standing need.
2. The rise of habit-forming technology
Habit-forming technology includes closely analyzing the behavior of mobile app users, and working on the psychological triggers that create desirable intuitions and habits, finally, helping app owners make the users come back to the app over and over again.
At present, too many large enterprise apps are not leverage this, however, the trend is expected to upshot in 2018 with as much as 50% rise in the use of habit-forming technology at major enterprises to entice and retain their customers.
If these habit principles are adopted to enterprise apps during an app's design and development phase, businesses can certainly harvest similar rewards internally.
3. Superlative data management capabilities and rise of data science
Big data has already made an impact in the way we do business and manage large chunks of data. 2018 will witness an upsurge in enterprise application integration (EAI), which comes down to reducing the transfer data to the extent possible.
The less the data travels from a system to another, the less are the odds of data loss or corruption.
In addition, information can be easily upgraded with more efficiency across all departments in an enterprise.
4. Productivity through data automation
Data collection and analysis which once used to take weeks or even months are now being carried out in real time, augmenting productivity by the use of automation. Enterprise apps will focus more on automating business processes and data analysis in 2018.
In case you are launching a new item and have plans for an email campaign to target three different probable markets, the automated process here can help you track the performance of each email campaign and provide you that data, comparing not only the success of each individual campaign, but also providing the differences in click points, demographics, buyer preference, etc.
Businesses can leverage these important conclusions for optimizing their campaigns and gain insights into their target market. It's already a trend and is only going to get bigger and bigger in 2018.
Tim Cook recently termed Swift as the next big programming language, and followed his statement with the two most sweetheart words for any enterprise app developer, "open source".
Apple's general-purpose programming language Swift is pre-compiled for iOS, Linux, macOS, and tvOS, and is sure going to take the enterprise application development world by the storm in 2018 with Swift4.
Swift 4 has the legacy prowess of Swift 3 along with tremendous capabilities to create highly scalable, intuitive and robust applications. This upgradation will assist iOS developers in developing the enterprise apps faster without actually compromising on the important app features such as security and performance.
In fact, enterprise apps designed with Swift 4 will take up less memory of user devices. We see 2018 to be packed to capacity with faster, safer iOS app development with Swift 4.
So, these were the top 5 things to expect from enterprise apps in 2018. The market is hot and growing. SMBs, startups and virtually any enterprise mobile app development company can have the time of their lives during the next 365 days and beyond, all they need to do is be proactive and seize the opportunity while it's relatively newer.
