Sencha CEO Art Landro says that most providers of application development tools are just now getting around to supporting the new standard. In conjunction with that effort, Sencha added the ability to better integrate applications developed using Sencha tools with Angular 2 and React frameworks that some developers may also employ.
In general, Landro says, interest in HTML5 remains high in the enterprise because the applications they develop typically need to support multiple devices. In contrast, Landro says, developers of consumer applications that need to be optimized for a specific mobile platform tend to favor native programming tools.
“In the average enterprise, desktops are still critical,” says Landro.
As such, Landro says, cross-platform approaches to developing applications such as Ext JS are more relevant than ever in the enterprise.
