This IDC study examines the current state of mobile application development and provides insight for strategic decisions around the variety of approaches available for enterprises. The study describes the four common approaches such as using native tools apps, Web apps, hybrid apps, and third-party cross-platform tools apps.
"The central problem in mobile application development is addressing the variety of platforms and devices that employees can bring into the enterprise in a productive and agile manner," said Al Hilwa, research director, Application Development Software at IDC. "Enterprises are different and negotiate the decisions around choosing these approaches differently, but all have to navigate the next decade of application revamping to accommodate the disruption caused by the mobile revolution."
