10 Ways Enterprise Mobile Apps Differ From Standard Web Apps

By Chris Preimesberger  |  Posted 2015-03-27

Industry researcher VisionMobile last year published a report saying that despite the vast investments enterprises are putting into developing mobile apps, to date only a minority (15 percent) of independent mobile developers are actually targeting the enterprise market. This is because developers generally see the consumer market, at this point, as the quickest and easiest way to make money in mobile development. Consumers seem to want an app for everything they do, and the market has proved they will pay if there is perceived usefulness. However, longer-term, enterprise mobile app development might be a better way for developers to go; researchers believe that the market is about to get very big, very fast. Enterprises should look at developing their own mobile apps for a number of good reasons. This slide show, put together with eWEEK reporting and industry insight from mobile back-end-as-a-service (mBaaS) provider Kinvey, provides insight for enterprises on the key differences and value points regarding mobile enterprise applications as opposed to standard Web-based apps.
