Enterprises are looking to innovations like big data, cloud-based services and mobile apps to improve decision making and accelerate business results. But legacy IT implementations—independent compute, storage and networking platforms, veneered with a hypervisor— often can’t deliver on the increased agility, scalability and price performance demands of this new era of IT.

This guide gives you a concrete definition for each criteria and explains why it is crucial to consider each capability as you determine the right mobile app platform for your goals. The criteria you see throughout this guide has been identified by Gartner as the essential set of functions needed for optimal performance of your platform.
Perhaps the biggest transformation in enterprise IT since the public cloud emerged is the move toward “mobile-first” application development. As mobility continues to become the new enterprise standard, developers are looking for frameworks that provide the tools they need to create innovative mobile applications without sacrificing their existing investments.
While there are proven, enterprise-ready frameworks and platforms for developing and deploying traditional desktop applications, the mobile application development landscape is still evolving. Mobile Backend as a Service (MBaaS) attempts to fill the gap between traditional application platforms and mobile applications. It is the new middleware, exposing APIs and functions that enable developers to rapidly build new mobile apps and mobile-enable legacy enterprise applications.

Before you transform your business with mobility services, you need to consider both the management and security challenges you’ll face from the combination of mobile devices and cloud-based apps.
In this IDC report, you’ll examine enterprise mobility management technology—offered through solutions such as the Microsoft Enterprise Mobility Suite—and how it helps manage the security risks of your mobility strategy.
Learn about these critical benefits:
• Provisioning and configuration devices and users—across platforms
• Ensuring only authorized users access data with identity system integration
• Ensuring only compliant devices access the corporate network through conditional access policies
• Allowing mobile applications to deploy in a more secure, streamline manner with enterprise app stores
• Providing security for data at rest, within workflows or over wireless networks, using granular policies around applications

Over the past few years, organizations have used a variety of tools and technologies
to enable basic mobile device management (MDM) and essential apps like email and
calendar. But those capabilities are inadequate for companies that want to move beyond
the basics and transform their business processes by securely moving apps and data
to the cloud. For AirWatch customers, this means they should start evaluating leading
enterprise mobility management (EMM) platforms like MobileIron in order to achieve
their mobile transformation goals. Our platform is 100% focused on building today’s
modern enterprise architecture, which is quickly shifting core business processes away
from legacy technologies and standardizing on mobile devices and cloud services.

At the end of last year, the US alone had 435 million smart mobile devices in use — that’s 35% higher than the total US population. Among smartphone users, 68% use messaging apps regularly. And 84% of smartphone engagement with apps is spent communicating via text, email, and social channels.
What does this mean for brands? The current state of CX is broken. Brands focus too much on channel and transaction, ignoring the customer’s preferences, and, ultimately, negatively affecting their bottom line.
But wherever there’s a disconnect, there’s also opportunity. In increasing numbers brands are turning to messaging platforms and apps to offer more efficient, convenient customer service.
Adopting new mobile applications usually brings with it legitmate concerns related to security and risk mitigation. This technical white paper explains how IBM MobileFirst Platform can address some of the unique security challenges of mobile applications by helping you to:
- Protect on-device data through encryption, offline authentication and other security features
- Integrate IBM MobileFirst Platform with your existing enterprise security infrastructure
- Prevent the mass distribution of tampered copies of your original application
- Enforce security updates to your mobile applications
The rise of the cloud and mobile computing has rapidly changed the nature of enterprise cybersecurity. The old paradigm, where all work was done behind a company firewall, has been breaking down.
Employees work not just at the office, but also on the road and at home, on mobile devices and on their own personal computers. They’re no longer using a limited stack of enterprise applications. Instead, they increasingly require access to a wide variety of apps, cloud services, and new communication platforms.

Apps have become critical to small businesses’ success. Small businesses are increasingly using apps in their daily operations. According to a recent survey, nearly three-fourths (72%) of small businesses are using apps on smartphones or tablets for their business and 38% report they could not survive—or it would be a major challenge to survive—without apps.
Mobile apps drive up to 4-times longer engagement than mobile sites, but mobile application development platforms (MADP) have mainly been focused on developers, making personalization and adjustments difficult for marketers. Adobe has changed that. Gartner recently evaluated the top MADP vendors, across a variety of criteria, including Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute, and named Adobe a Leader in their Magic Quadrant for Mobile Application Development Platforms report.

Successful mobile apps, especially enterprise mobile apps, typically need to interact with a well-architected set of back-end services, but most mobile app developers are more skilled at client-side front-end development. Enter mobile back-end-as-a-service (BaaS), a new set of hosted platforms that addresses the gap between front-end development proficiency and back-end infrastructure requirements. Enterprise-class back-end-as-a-service addresses scalability while providing an integration platform into existing enterprise services. Use this research as your guidebook to navigating the emerging BaaS landscape.
This Gigaom Research webinar will discuss the current state of mobile development processes and tools, evaluate the impact of disruptive forces over the coming years, and provide guidance about how to approach cross-platform mobile development and how to build a flexible, scalable toolset.
