    REPORT: Building A Mobile Business Case: It's A Steep Climb

    Business Case: The Mobile App Development Playbook

    August 31, 2017 Julie A. Ask, Jeffrey S. Hammond, Michael Facemire

    Mobile app development may seem inexpensive, but it's not. While there are low-cost development tools and frameworks, apps require ongoing support and updates, and labor costs are high. Moreover, the cost of app development is a drop in the bucket compared with the cost of powering apps through infrastructure that taps into real-time information and services. Application development and delivery leaders must carefully plan a business case that captures the benefits, total costs, and risks of mobile development. This report lays out the steps in that process.

    Three Technologies That Create A Productive Mobile Employee Experience

    August 11, 2017Michael Facemire, Andrew Hewitt, Elinor Klavens

    When it comes to enterprise mobility, I&O pros have focused heavily on delivering apps to workers — and are missing the real opportunity to mobilize workers. While some apps are vital to employee productivity, the reality is that most company-deployed apps are poorly designed and have low adoption among employees. This report looks at three technologies — team messaging platforms, new web standards, and actionable notifications — and how I&O leaders can use them to improve the mobile employee experience and enterprise app manageability.

    REPORT: Build Mobile Experiences That Drive Engagement

    Executive Overview: The Mobile App Development Playbook

    June 20, 2017 Jeffrey S. Hammond, Michael Facemire

    The mobile mind shift is driving businesses' customers and stakeholders to expect (and demand) support for a wide variety of smartphones and tablets. But for application development and delivery pros, building mobile experiences is different from building websites or traditional client/server applications. It's not just the technologies that are different — development processes need to be faster and produce higher-quality experiences to meet higher expectations. This report serves as the executive overview for the mobile app development playbook. This is an update of a previously published report; Forrester reviews and updates it periodically for continued relevance and accuracy.
