Why Read This Report

Enterprise mobile applications are a new frontier and a fast-growing area of business technology investment as employees demand better tools to win, serve, and retain customers. Application development and delivery (AD&D) professionals strive to create groundbreaking new mobile services, while sourcing executives struggle to help them select the right partners. Increased complexity, risk, and a lack of in-house skills force AD&D executives to turn to external partners for help. But it's a challenge to find the right partner in this nascent and fast-growing market. Enterprise mobile projects are tricky because they tend to be high-velocity, open-ended, and heavily custom, which creates risk and uncertainty that confounds traditional services companies with rigid processes. Additionally, enterprise mobile app projects often uncover backend infrastructure needs, such as real-time access to data, centralized identity management and security, API management, and mobile-ready content delivery. This report will discuss major trends in the provider landscape for mobile enterprise apps and provide an overview of the types of providers that can help support your mobile enterprise app projects.
