As mobile device usage has skyrocketed in recent years, mobile applications have emerged as the key engagement channel for businesses to connect with their most loyal and most valuable customers. Mobile app usage represents more than 85% of total mobile device time, and users now spend more time with apps than they do with television. But while app usage has increased more than 60% over the last two years, the number of apps each user actively engages with has remained fairly steady, at around 27 per month. This means users have a limited appetite for additional apps – but are heavily engaged with the ones they use. So while the mobile web gives businesses broad reach, mobile apps offer a robust link to their best customers. Users who value the company enough to go through the trouble of downloading and installing the app are a brand’s most engaged audience and loyal fan base.
This report explores the evolution of the key features of course apps mobility, interactivity, engaging design, and integrated analytics — and showcase how course apps are sparking new thinking in higher education about the next iteration of digital learning resources.
Whether you want to map directions, find a restaurant, look up your flight details, see where your next meeting is, or just check your email, chances are you do it on your smartphone. Just about everything is going mobile. Industries such as retail and financial services are going mobile to increase efficiency and generate more revenue. Mobile business apps and mobile enterprise apps have the potential to transform organizations.

The financial system you are running today can probably
trace its heritage back to the ‘80s and ‘90s. Since
then, the needs of finance organisations have changed
dramatically, but financial systems have failed to adapt at

these systems weren’t designed to meet the needs of
today’s finance organisation. With CFOs today facing
requirements very different from those they faced just a
decade ago, Workday believes that finance organisations
need applications built from the ground up based on
today’s needs – not yesterday’s. They need modern

The mobile-cloud era is here. It is not merely about delivering apps; it is about simplifying processes so you can accomplish more. The mobile-cloud era is redefining productivity by enabling workflows through the key foundations of identity and contextual experiences, mobile collaboration, united endpoint management and security, and windows apps and desktops.
Today people work primarily from mobile sources and expect a strikingly continuous experience across all their devices, regardless of which device they select to best accomplish any given task. Once access is established, organizations are looking to transform processes to mobile so they can increase efficiency and workflows for end users, thereby driving productivity to the next level.

Are you up-to-speed with the latest trends in mobile and Internet of Things (IoT) application security testing? Our recent Ponemon Institute study reveals key findings about organizations' ability to protect their mobile and IoT apps. Read our report to learn how well you stack up against your peers in securing your most critical mobile and IoT applications.
In collaboration with Enterprise Management Associates (EMA), AppDynamics has conducted a survey of application management professionals and managers to determine exactly what IT organizations want and need from APM providers.
Here are some key findings from the research:
• Only 30% of companies currently have application-specific solutions to monitor apps
• 50% or fewer of the tools companies have purchased are actively being used to monitor apps
• 27% of application-related problems are detected by monitoring tools
• A “unified monitoring platform” is the top choice in a feature of an APM solution
Download the full report to review the findings and understand the key challenges and “must haves” associated with APM solutions voiced by IT professionals themselves.

Most people define mobile devices – smartphones and tablets – as those
running a mobile-optimized operating system (e.g. iOS, Android, Windows
Phone). There’s a trend emerging, however, in which traditional mobile
devices are gaining functionality typically associated with PCs.
At the same time, PCs are being architected more like mobile devices — an
interbreeding of species, if you will. The iPad Pro, for example, has a
keyboard. With Windows 10, phones and tablets can run “Universal” apps
that also run on PCs. Windows 10 also has application-layer sandboxing,
code-signing, and an app store with apps pre-vetted by Microsoft. In
certain configurations (i.e. enterprise-managed devices), a laptop running
Windows 10 has a security architecture that looks strikingly similar to a
smartphone or tablet.

Enterprises and organizations from all industries and sectors are migrating or deploying new applications to IaaS public cloud providers to achieve greater agility, faster time to market, and flexible utility payment models. Whether these apps are revenue generating or critical business apps, they must ensure the same great user experience.
Read this whitepaper to understand the key considerations and known inhibitors to the successful migration of apps to the public cloud.
While free apps proliferate, many fall victim to the download-try-delete cycle, making the average lifespan of an app just 30 days. How can brands keep their place on a customer's mobile device? This whitepaper discusses how an app can deliver value to maintain its place on a customer's phone, and how added value can prompt customers to share some private information and opt in to push notifications. Dig deeper into the key performance indicators (KPIs) for apps that achieve this privacy-value exchange.
What is the key benefit of SD-WAN?
To provide seamless access to digital services for end-users.
But IT is more distributed, fragmentary, and dynamic than ever, with hybrid apps, hybrid networks, and remote and mobile users everywhere.
Hardware-bound legacy networks can never fulfill the promise of seamless access. Taming the chaos of today’s IT requires a new approach to networking.
This is the promise of software-defined wide area networks (SD-WAN)—the ability to use plain-language business policies to automate and orchestrate all the components of digital access.
Read this white paper to learn how SD-WAN lets you:
• Manage centrally from a cloud console with a comprehensive view of your connectivity fabric that spans and unifies datacenter/cloud apps, branch/mobile users, and enterprise/cloud networks.
• Orchestrate globally using business policy-based automation to define quality of service and access privileges for all apps/users.
• Deploy locally with zero touch via automated
