With booming adoption of mobile business apps by enterprises, it comes as no surprise that a demand for skilled developers is also increasing. Today, the mobile market is gradually adapting to this demand and offers tools to simplify mobile app development.
Companies have realized that because of mobile apps, business processes that previously took many hours or days can now be done in minutes, thereby leading to time savings and increased revenue. However, finding a good developer who will take into account all your requirements and create a really useful application while staying within your budget is not always easy.
“Sometimes, what’s available in the app store isn’t enough. And native development skills – experience coding in Objective-C, Swift and Java – are difficult to find”, says Adam Bookman, co-founder and partner at Propelies. Another problem is to find a developer who is particularly skilled at building enterprise apps and not just has experience in the creating of games or simple marketing apps. “While app developers don’t need to be enterprise architect or Web services gurus, they do need to understand enterprise systems and processes and how to hook into them”, Bookman asserts.
This lack of competent and field-specific app developers gave rise to low-code and codeless development tools which enterprises can adopt, while tapping into their existing employees’ skills.
IDC’s Mobile Enterprise Software survey from April 2014 showed that 40% of businesses with more than 1,000 employees developed and deployed all their apps themselves within the previous 12 to 18 months. 15% of the respondents deployed all apps using a third party and 43% mixed third-party firms and internal development.
No-Coding Tools for B2E Apps
Organizations are paying more attention to business-to-consumer apps, which can directly lead to sales, than business-to-employee apps. However, B2E apps are also important and provide numerous workflow and productivity benefits.
To build business-to-employee apps, organizations can turn to low-code or codeless app development platforms, intended for users without programming skills.
