Enterprises Are Just Getting Started With Mobile Apps

The majority of enterprises are just getting started with mobile apps. 

According to Appcelerator’s State Of The Mobile Enterprise survey, 75 per cent of enterprises have built and launched fewer than five apps total. 30-nine per cent have built either only one or no apps at all. 

That means that while mobile apps may be everywhere in the consumer space, there is still plenty of room for growth in enterprise app development. 

Companies that don’t fully leap into mobile are at risk of losing out to competitors who are able to improve customer service through apps or become more efficient through the use of internal apps for employee use. 

It does appear as if more companies are now planning larger investments in mobile apps. According to Appcelerator, 11 per cent of the enterprises surveyed stated that they plan to build more than 20 apps in the next 12 months.

As we’ve noted, Apple’s iOS platform has a lead in enterprise mobility due to good security controls and Apple’s supremacy in the enterprise-friendly tablet market. 

Appcelerator’s survey polled executives at 770 enterprises worldwide in November and December of last year.
