Fact: Gartner estimates that “a typical Fortune 1000 company that deploys business-to-employee or business-to-consumer mobile applications will use at least six different combinations of mobile platform, architecture and development tools.”
Fact: Gartner also estimates that “by 2014, 60% of these organizations will have failed to put a comprehensive mobile strategy in place – leading to considerable overspending and ever increasing data security risks.”
Fact: In a major event next month, 80 CIOs, VPs, IT and Operations directors and other senior executives and experts will come together to discuss how to overcome mobility challenges.
FieldOne is proud to join those experts at Enterprise Mobility Exchange, taking place this year on November 7-9 at The Venetian in Las Vegas.
We invite you to visit us in the exhibition hall to discuss our take on mobility solutions, field service mobile apps, our cloud-based software, and much more.
As enterprise mobile apps shift from their small, task-oriented focus to more complex functions, there seems to be a new area of application development from which business apps can drawn inspiration: mobile games.
And, no, that doesn’t mean flinging an angry bird into a pile of paperwork. According to CIO, Alex Caccia, president of Marmalade, a an app development company, believes that having mobile gaming experience can actually help developers working on apps for enterprise businesses.
The issue, Caccia notes, is that often the business professionals make a fairly common assumptions about games: they are time wasters meant for shutting off your brain and losing yourself in unimportant, unproductive activity.
However, the opposite is true: games actually push creativity and get the brain moving. And it’s inherently human to seek out puzzles, working out tasks in the format of a game.
And besides – two of the fastest moving and high-grossing areas of development today are mobile and gaming. When building enterprise apps, it would be wise to borrow experience from the best.
