The Mobile Center of Excellence

The idea of a Mobile Center of Excellence (COE) has been talked about for years, but it’s only recently that enterprises have begun formally budgeting and assigning people to set up and staff this effort. Done right, the Mobile COE provides a centralized hub for mobile expertise and technology. By coordinating and providing guidance for all mobile projects across the organization, companies can benefit from economies of scale (e.g., when purchasing third-party products) and can both accelerate and de-risk the delivery of critical mobile solutions, by exchanging best practices, prescribing the use of approved tools and enforcing compliance with key IT and business policies.

Recommendation:  Centralize your mobile efforts, take stock of all the existing tools and vendors your organizations are paying for today, then negotiate discounts.

Over the last few years, mobile has swept across the enterprise and mobile apps have become part of the way we communicate, collaborate and work. Creating, deploying and scaling mobile apps has evolved from something only a handful of specialists could achieve to becoming the core competency of an entire industry comprising mobile consultants, digital agencies, service providers and technology providers.

The flipside is that organizations are inundated with pitches, products and technology choices and it’s easy to lose sight of the bigger picture of what’s truly trending across mobile development amongst all the clamoring voices.

In this slideshow, Built.io, an award-winning technology provider with solutions that enable organizations to quickly create, integrate and scale apps across mobile, web and IoT, identifies the key trends that mobile developers and enterprises adopting a mobile program can benefit from right now.
