Despite the much-publicized demand for mobile app development in the enterprise, spending for such initiatives remains low, according to a new report from research firm Gartner, Inc. that parallels the findings of many other studies.
Gartner’s earlier report (late 2015) contends that, “Organizations want to have full control over their mobile app development initiatives; however, maintaining a pure, in-house development environment is difficult to achieve given mobile is a relatively new competency to many developers.”
The report also states that mobile app development “entails many complexities and specific activities, such as UX design and psychology or cellular coverage testing, which may be more efficiently handled by an outsourced third party experienced in mobile app development.”
Despite the hype surrounding mobile and opportunities for custom apps to enable greater workforce productivity and enhanced customer engagement, the number of custom apps created is low.
On the other hand, virtually all knowledge workers are using more data science- and coding-type activities in the mainstream work cycle than before, and many more are increasingly engaged in digital transformation as stakeholders in agile teams or business product managers.
In the long run, more of the population will eventually engage in a level of app construction skills but for that to materially change, schools have to do a better job teaching app building.
