Mobiles or smartphones are increasingly becoming main devices for business use. The usage is prominently increasing and they are here to stay for a long-long time for sure. If we talk about enterprise level mobile usage, it is likely to grow above 40% by the dawn of 2018. Companies are spending hefty revenues on mobility services and are expected to do so until next few years. Enterprise business owners have tasted the success of mobile technology and are sure that it can add more flavors in terms of advancements to their business and also can make it grow to the best.
Designing an enterprise business strategy on mobiles has its own fair share of ebbs and tides. Enlisted are some of the potential risk factors:
Challenge of Integration
Integration of apps, existing and new, is one of the prime issues faced by a lot of Enterprise Mobility Solution providers. Upgrading traditional systems to integrate them with newer mobile technology solutions for various platforms is one the jobs, that consumes maximum time and energy. A lot of mobile solutions at enterprise level have reportedly gone out of time and budget, as integrating the existing database structures and other setups proved to be a gigantic task.
Challenge of less or non-uniform mobile policies
A recent survey about mobile device policy suggests that either they are less in number or are inefficient to cover up all the aspects. Android Apps Developer, iOS Apps Developers, iPhone Apps Developers etc. have their own thought processes and as we all know, Mobile Apps Development is done to meet client requirements. Increasing popularity of mobile solutions has now it seems, compelled the companies to look at this phase more seriously and they are developing adequate and appropriate policies. Entire IT sector is still in the process of providing strong communication to businesses pertaining to this particular challenge – but there is certainly ray of hope at the end of this tunnel.
Challenge in form of non-availability of Mobile Analytics
Websites allow you to gauge the performance by using several analytical tools, to check out on the areas of improvement. But Mobile Apps Developers providing mobile solutions find it really hard to do something alike. There is no mobile analytic software available as of now. Yes it’s shocking but, is the truth. Say for instance if a mobile enterprise solution provider is looking out for more details about the app users, what other content the user is browsing on the mobile device or what other apps they are using – it is not possible.
Though the situation is gradually changing, it is yet to reach the expected pace of change. Companies have started taking initiatives in this direction and have already braced up by investing in mobile analytics strategies. These analytics are capable of providing solid foundation for businesses to take decide the next course of actions, enhancements and improvements. However; this ground breaking change is not likely to come up that fast and hence Mobile Enterprise service providers and businesses are likely to face these challenges for some more time.
We saw three of the major challenges that enterprise mobile solutions are likely to witness in current and coming some months. There are chances of a few more unanticipated challenges that may surface going further. It would be nice if you share any of the challenges, or even your views for the benefit of one and all. Software development companies equipped with advanced technology and innovative strategies are likely to overcome all such challenges when it comes to Application Development – for sure.
