The Present & The Future
Apps have so far been touch-enabled. The demand for conversational & wearable apps is expected to see a surge in future. Advanced mobile user experience design, augmented reality (AR)/virtual reality (VR) and new networking standards are new transformational technologies as per Gartner’s prediction for Enterprise Mobility.
“In context to business applications, we don’t see AR & VR going mainstream as yet. There are a few application areas best suited for AR, VR & MR, however, we will not see major outcomes of any successful PoCs until 2020,” shares Jinen.
In the above-mentioned Gartner report, the use of analytics to understand user behaviour and determine new feature functionality was stated as a factor in growing in business-to-employee (B2E) applications. Internet of Things (IoT) protocol is also being embedded in traditional mobile application development platforms.
Experience and expertise
DronaHQ, the full stack enterprise mobility player, has already been a platform of choice for some very large mobility programmes. The company is continuing its path to consolidate enterprise enablement and augment capabilities to meet future needs of enterprises.
As a product, the team is working in the direction of making it simple, like a 3D printer where you put in the requirement designs and get an object, to produce full-fledged apps as output served on a single container for a user.
Given that they are a product focussed company their aim is to create a new market category and being a market leader is the path they are pursuing. “We would also like to provide their shareholders with the hockey stick returns that they deserve,” says Jinen.
The team at DronaHQ believes enterprise mobility programmes will continue to emerge and become a powerful market in themselves as they aim to be at the forefront of this wave where enterprise mobility category transitions to mainstream to become a very significant category.
Jinen adds that as RMADP stays the course to go mainstream, DronaHQ will continue its global positioning to be a significant market leader to provide app development tools and build an ecosystem where partners can leverage their deployments.
