    REPORT: Build A Four-Tier Digital Engagement Platform

    Road Map: The Mobile App Development Playbook

    March 22, 2018Michael Facemire, Ted Schadler

    Mobile is pushing aging web architectures to the brink. The three-tier architecture built for a browser-led PC world can't flex, scale, or respond to the needs of a good mobile experience or the emerging requirements for connected products. Mobile's volatility and velocity of change require a distributed four-tier architecture that we call an "engagement platform." The engagement platform separates technical capabilities into four parts: client, delivery, aggregation, and services. App developers need to start planning immediately for the migration from three tiers to four.
