Is your business betting on your mobile strategy?
You will lose your current market share, if you don't make the right decisions on your mobile strategy. In a study done by IBM, mobile was listed as one of the top disruptive technologies to impact competitiveness. Having or planning a mobile application, web site, native or hybrid app does not guarantee the advantages over your competition. The update of mobile content and mobile available digital assets is much more important today than just a few years ago.
Which Mobile Development Technology?
Mobile website, in client HTML5, Hybrid, or Native app is a part of the strategic decisions. With more dynamic changes required, what technology should be the predominant for mobile development for your company. Here is an overview of the principle mobile technologies:
Mobile websites are web applications that utilize web technologies like ASP.NET, JAVA, C#, Ruby, etc. that ultimately produce HTML. This website is focused on one or more mobile form- factors and use browser size or device detection to produce an application or content to fit in a mobile browser.
Native apps are built using the development tools and languages (XCode and Objective C for iOS apps, Eclipse, Android Studio and Java for Android, Visual Studio and C# for Windows) that the respective platforms support and so run only on their targeted platforms.
Like in all technology battles, there is no one-size-fits-all answer.
The development strategy direction is one of the many decisions that need to be made for enterprise, customer oriented B2C and B2B applications. You can not rely on articles, research or statements made by experts last year. These technologies, frameworks and tools are changing consistently. The performance of applications versus the productivity of development and the cost of one strategy over another needs to be evaluated by experts for a particular business solution. Don't just accept the axiom that native apps are faster. Many considerations must be factored in when developing a mobile strategy. There are risk when looking to simply offshore outsource or giving your internal team a "learning experience."
