Enterprise apps as a niche still find least number of developers having sufficient expertise in creating business specific interfaces for diverse objectives. Employees are most like to benefit from the enterprise apps. For training and skill development to maintaining reporting system to unleashing business data for top executives, there can be an array of business objectives for enterprise apps. In a corporate environment increasingly dominated by BYOD practice, enterprise apps are the new norm to bind workforce together around different objectives.

With the rapid progress made in exciting handset mobile apps are bound to get smarter with every passing day. But when it comes to enterprise apps they just cannot give a smart look and feel but need to be thoroughly performance driven. Developing a business app that address the particular business objective and expectation of employees is often challenging and that is why a great app that can win the favor of workforce will be rewarded too with enough industry exposure and customer loyalty. Let us understand the key aspects related to enterprise mobile app development.
Scalability of the app
An app developed for the workforce, management, business channels or for the customers of a business must address the crucial question of scalability. Every business is in a potential growth track and naturally corresponding to itâs near future possibilities and dimensions of business growth it must create a befitting digital apparatus that can address the growing business demand and demands of business activity in an appropriate manner. Scalability is not only about the employee or customer size or business volume, it is also about geographic expansion and expansion of business in diverse niches.

  • The app must address scalable user base.
  • It must be ready to address growing number of business queries and responsive needs.
  • It must address growing number of business niches and verticals.
  • It must address geographical expansion of a business with adequate localization features within the same app.
Customized enterprise app
When developing an app for fulfilling certain business or management objectives for an enterprise, there is no ubiquitous concept of right and wrong that you can follow. The nature of the app, its feature set, navigation, security attributes and interface, all would depend upon the objectives behind the app and how well that can be addressed. Naturally the end product may look dull in comparison to so called business apps across app stores of any platform but that hardly matters as far as it satisfactorily address the business and management concerns behind the app. This is why customization has never been a bigger force in the development of any app than enterprise apps.
Building own app or subscribing to business app
This is another big concern for most enterprise app developers and companies employing apps for internal use or deciding to develop their own. Just consider the huge popularity of cloud based document sharing apps and services like Google Drive, DropBox, Evernote, etc. These apps with their simplicity, collaborative features and business focused versions enjoy great popularity across businesses. But even then, some corporate may find them lacking scopes for customization or may consider them devoid of features they need for their purpose. In such cases building custom apps would be a better solution. While custom apps always give you flexibility and perfection, in comparison subscribing to business apps remains a less expensive solution.
Building custom apps:
Building custom apps for organizational use is always popular for big corporate as they are more concerned on data security. Moreover building own apps let you address the business concerns in just the way you think rather than following a gross pattern.
Enterprise apps for backend:
Enterprise apps for backend services are increasingly being popular these days. Backend operation in any company works as the launching pad for driving business and business process heavily depends upon them. A great backend app can minimize chances of human mistakes and speed up the business process with time optimized delivery.
Security concerns
Security is the biggest concerned area for most enterprise apps and developers need to give particular heed to them. In any organization today using personal devices for business purpose or workplace use has become a common phenomenon. The Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy is increasingly being embraced by most companies to come to agreement regarding the norms concerning use of personal devices. Enterprise apps in this dominant BYOD scenario must offer higher control, data security and administrative settings and features to the management and administrators.
