According to a recent survey conducted by Gartner, as user application touchpoints increase in frequency, change in modalities and expand in device type, the future of app development is multi-experience.
Jason Wong, research VP at Gartner said: “Development platform vendors are expanding their value proposition beyond mobile apps and web development to meet user and industry demands. The result is the emergence of multi-experience development platforms, which are used in developing chat, voice, augmented reality and wearable experiences in support of the digital business.”
The survey found that mobile apps are on the rise despite the web browser continued to offer popular application touchpoint. Among enterprises that have developed and deployed at least three different types of applications (other than web apps), the most common ones are mobile apps (91%). Conversational applications are the second-most widely developed type of application type at 73% for voice apps and 60% for chatbots.
Cloud-hosted artificial intelligence services are the most widely used technology to support mult-experience application development (61% of respondents), followed by native iOS and Android development (48%) and mobile back-end services (45%). As per the survey respondents, contrary to the perception that mobile apps are in decline, they are in the lead for applications projected to have the most impact on business success by 2020.
California-based Pivotal Software – a software and services company, has found that Germany is leading the race in the enterprise software-driven landscape while the US is at the second spot. The firm’s Built to Adapt Benchmark report that surveyed more than 1600 executives across CIOs, CSOs, CTOs and IT managers, found that 39% of them have deployed software at least once a day; yet a similar number (40%) only deploy once a month.
