Huge demand for enterprise mobile apps outruns development capacity

Houston, 05 May, 2016 : According to Gartner, Inc. (NYSE: IT), the world's leading information technology research and advisory company, employees in today's digital workplace use an average of three different devices in their daily routine, which will increase to five or six devices as technologies such as wearable devices and the Internet of Things (IoT) eventually become mainstream. Many of these employees choose the devices, apps and even the processes with which to complete a task. This has increased the pressure on mobile app development companies such as BluENt to develop a larger variety of mobile apps in shorter time frames. However, it is interesting to note that although the pressure is rising, most organizations have not chosen to follow the app route. In fact, most of them are still waiting for a portent before they make that decision.

The team at BluEnt has reports that indicate that by the end of 2017, the market for mobile app development services will expand at least five times faster than the capacity to deliver them. Going back to the Gartner study, their forecast indicates that mobile phone sales will reach 2.1 billion units by 2019. The mobile app developers at BluEnt are convinced that this will translate into an exponential rise in the demand for apps in the enterprise sector.

The mixed-sourcing approach by BluEnt
Companies such as BluEnt, which have been operating in the app development and maintenance industry for more than 14 years, know that most organizations do not wish to lose control over their mobile app development initiatives. Considering the fact that mobile is a relatively new area of competency even for experienced developers, it becomes unnecessarily expensive to sustain an in-house development environment. In such scenarios, industry experts suggest that the best way forward is to assign such complexities and intricacies to a third party vendor who can manage the development process effectively. Mobile app development companies such as BluEnt operate in the outsourcing sector and are well established as a third party experienced in mobile app development. Till the organizations regain their in-house capabilities, it is best to make use of the mixed sourcing model adopted by mobile app development companies such as BluEnt to deliver successful apps.
