Apadmi forecasts boom in business apps for 2014
Apadmi is predicting that 2014 will see a boom in app development for enterprise customers. The leading app developer has stated that the conditions are right for businesses to be able to invest in apps that will increase productivity and efficiency across a wide range of business functions.
Nick Black, co-founder and sales director at Apadmi, commented: “There are a number of factors coming together which mean that enterprise apps will be big in 2014. The drive towards mobile working continues to escalate and the cost of devices, particularly tablets, is reducing and enabling companies to deploy more technology across their workforces.
“Businesses are looking for ways to increase efficiencies in a number of areas including data capture, workforce management and how to tackle the complexities of BYOD. Handset manufacturers and MDM providers have also made recent advances that make it easier for enterprise customers to deploy and manage both devices and apps amongst their employees.”
Apadmi has seen that business applications are moving beyond providing standard functions, such as managing contacts and schedules, and have started to increase in scope to cover process and systems management, sales catalogues and management solutions, internal communications, management dashboards, finance, HR and operational tools and mobile usage analytics. The user interface will be a crucial element to this success, replicating the intuitive app design principles that have been utilised in consumer apps for many years, to create enterprise apps that are enjoyable to use, as well as being secure and reliable.
Black continued: “Enterprise apps have the potential to revolutionise many business functions, however most organisations still don’t have specific mobile strategies or experts in place to drive these advances. We will be offering advice and ideas to companies interested in the opportunities presented by apps for business during this year’s Apps World exhibition.”
Apadmi will be exhibiting at Apps World which takes place on the 22nd-23rd October 2013 at Earls Court 2 in London, stand 231. Panaram, an Enterprise Application company, and part of the Apadmi Group, will also be exhibiting at the event on stand 413.
