Enterprise Apps are built for Specific Target Audience. It’s highly required to analyze who is the target audience; could be a supplier, vendor, customer, client or employees. It is better to identify the real problem and build an app for enterprise rather trying to build one and promote that we have an app. Once the Target Audience is identified, we shall classify the UX design. It can be highly rich or plain and simple based on the demographic of our target audience. That said UX experience plays an important role when building an app. The purpose of using an app should be that It interacts with other components and make the end user’s task simplified. So An app building team should identify the components they will be integrating when building an app.

There are a few DO NOT items, which should not be included when coding an app. Security Ransom is its peak now and recommended to consider all possible security threats and build a solid and viable app. It is appropriate to sign in for HTTPS SSL certificates and encrypt all form submissions. We also need to include Salt and Key combinations to securely transfer data from mobile to the web. Enterprise app should look like a Business To Business App, but It engages with the customer like Business to Consumer app. Do you think any other features needs to be covered when designing an enterprise app? Feel free to comment below.

Ultimate guide for enterprises interested in building apps for their employees

Employees demand to access Enterprise systems on the go increase day by day. Mobile apps adds value proposition to organizations by increasing Employees execution speed thereby increase their productivity. Once the Enterprise makes the decision to build apps to meet their needs,they must analyze these factors to find out what they need :

1.Employee-driven
2.Buy; Customize or Build
3.Approach app as a Product

Employee-driven:

The mobile apps must be tailored to the needs of the Employees.. Before taking a decision on mobile strategy,they must clearly define the various app user personas. In Enterprise system, there are several mobile app user personas that use the same Enterprise software but each requires different mobile apps tailored to their needs. Hence mobile apps are not one-size fits all personas. This is the reason why defining Persona-driven mobile apps is critical.

Buy; Customize or Build:

The Enterprise software vendors are offering packaged mobile apps which have only basic functionality and workflows and these types of apps are acceptable for enterprises which need simple apps for generic business processes. Based on the needs of Enterprise like connecting with back-end systems, app customization approach can be opted where a preintegrated and prebuilt mobile app can be customized using the integrated app editing tool. Enterprises can also opt to build mobile apps from the ground using various mobile app development products.

However, this approach typically requires dedicated Mobile team with specific skills and expertise, such as back-end integration and mobile user experience design. This approach is best reserved for more complex mobile workflows that can transform business processes and this is where Custom Mobile app development companies play a major role.

Enterprises should do research to determine which of the three is best fit for their mobile app needs. Starting with one way doesn’t mean that you have to stick to it, based on the learned experiences the Enterprises tend to move to the next best suited one.

Approach app as a Product:

The app must be iterated periodically to meet the needs and expectations of the Employees which will change over time, and so the Enterprises must always think about app enhancement to meet those needs. Hence the mobile app should not be thought of as one-time project, but as a product which needs to be constantly maintained and enhanced.

These factors guides the business leaders through the decision process and provides best practices for mobilizing enterprise applications.

Born of necessity – Enterprise Mobile App

 

While apps have dominated  the consumer world in the last several years, they’ve actually failed to penetrate in Enterprise arena to the same extent. Though the development and use of a dynamic Information Technology platform resulted in Computerized Maintenance Management System, the real challenge, the enterprise faced in maintenance was in loading and accessing various type of data from wherever they were. An intense need arose from customers and employees has made the enterprise to think ‘mobile first’ and over a period of time, enterprise embraced and enabled the basics, like calendars, contacts and email for their customers. The time has changed and there is no need for anyone to tell the enterprise that mobility is critical for operational efficiency and to increase productivity, collaboration and profitability. Establishing a data-driven culture and enabling all decision-makers to take decisions based on the recent metrics will increase its productivity and continuous evolvement in it’s progress.The necessity to make “surgical decision” which eventually increases execution speed creates a concrete need in developing an Enterprise Mobility solution.
Once the Enterprise makes the decision that a custom app is required for its business, the most important decision is  how to build an app and there are two approaches; app can be built In-house or outsourced to a third party mobility expert.Building In-house app, Enterprise can have full control over their mobile app development, maintain a closer watch on progress, utilize the existing resources and make changes whenever since scope-creep is not a concern with internal resources. Though, In-house mobility have some potential advantages, there are a few complexities,
  • Resources should have mobile specific skill sets, such as UX design,development, implementation, analytics and performance testing.
  • Be aware of the quick changes in mobile industry, the fragmented devices and multiple platforms.
  • Developers, architects and user experience designers need to keep pace with the market changes.
