Why Read This
Traversing the mobile app development technology landscape is challenging — particularly in light of different mobile development approaches, the range of infrastructure capabilities, and the development skills that different solutions require. A large number of up-and-coming vendors and new product investments by traditional enterprise independent software vendors (ISVs) add to the complexity that application development and delivery (AD&D) professionals face in selecting the right solutions to support the mobile needs of their customers, employees, and partners. This tools and technology report of the mobile app development playbook for AD&D pros provides an overview of the different types of tools and technology available and best practices for selecting best-fit solutions. This is an update of a previously published report; we are now revising it to reflect continued changes to the tools and solutions market for mobile development technologies.
