    Why IT Is Bringing App Development In-House

    By Dennis McCafferty
 

A majority of organizations are currently deploying internally developed mobile applications, which is a major shift from last year, when only a minority of companies did that, according to a recent survey from Apperian. The resulting "2015 Executive Enterprise Mobility Report" reveals that IT is taking on this role to more effectively meet the specific needs of users, while improving business processes and gaining competitive edge. As part of this effort, tech departments are boosting enterprisewide visibility via metrics tracking that's related to app usage and network impact. There are, however, lingering challenges in achieving mobility goals, including those related to security and ROI measurement. That said, these developments demonstrate how IT can work with business departments to create a more agile, successful company. "With leading organizations developing mobile apps to gain a competitive advantage and needing to reach 100 percent of potential users," said Brian Day, president and CEO of Apperian, "we're seeing more and more organizations moving away from legacy, device-centric management approaches to an app-centric, best-of-breed approach to mobile app security and management. This is what enables organizations to reach everyone—whether the devices are managed or unmanaged—maximizing return on mobility investments." More than 300 IT and mobility professionals took part in the research, which was conducted by CITO Research.
