Mobile app development Trends
So, how is enterprise application development changing? What big trends can we expect in the coming year? In this article, we’ll examine some major trends, and explain why they’re so important. While this certainly isn’t an exhaustive list, the following includes some of the most important trends to watch in 2014:
Trend #1: Development moves to the client side
We’re already seeing a strong push towards web applications that behave more like native applications–a trend that will spill over into the enterprise this year. However, this push towards faster and more powerful web applications requires a shift in development methods.
“A trend that will continue is that more and more applications will move to the web… more accurately to the browser, ” says Alan Canton, Managing Partner at NewMedia Website Design. “Currently most web applications (like banking, airline reservations, checking the weather or the stockmarket, etc.) are server-side based. The bulk of the processing takes place on the server with the browser sending ‘signals’ as to what needs to be done and the server does it and sends a new page down the wires.”
Trend #2: Business applications get “consumerized”
Business applications of the past focused on function over form. A well-designed, intuitive interface wasn’t so important as a powerful application, and users accepted this as normal. These days, that’s changing. Users now expect the types of applications they can access on their smartphones and tablets–powerful, yet easily understandable applications.
