Driving Competitive Advantages With Enterprise Mobile Apps
The mobile app market is seeing incredible growth over the past couple of years, and one particularly interesting piece of this industry is the enterprise app landscape. As companies recognize the benefits of mobilizing key workflows, so too does their investment in mobile grow. As of right now, the majority of companies are making some investment into mobile, and it’s clear that more will be done to mobilize the workforce in the near future.
Customer-Facing Applications Pave the Way for Enterprise Mobility
Of the many reasons to consider enabling mobile within an organization, the fact that many people already execute many functions of their lives by way of mobile apps is a great one. Apps have evolved a lot in the decade that smartphones have been readily available, and now that these devices are so widespread it makes sense to consider how they can be used for work.
BYOD vs. COPE: The Costs and Benefits of a Corporate-Liable Mobility Program
BYOD, or Bring Your Own Device, is a popular way to allow employees to access mobilized solutions for their business. It comes with its own challenges, however, as security risks associated with personal devices can be harder to manage than if the company owns the device. Therefore, another popular way of enabling mobile in the workforce is to enact COPE, or Corporate Owned, Personally Enabled mobile devices.
MEAP Vs Native Mobile Application Development Strategy

Of the myriad options available, one must consider native mobile app development vs. MEAP, or Mobile Enterprise Application Platforms. There are benefits and drawbacks to both, and whichever best suites the company’s needs should be evaluated and decided upon.
