    Invest in Best-of-Breed Apps

    Consider investing in a best-of-breed mobile application.       

    Gartner predicted that "by the end of 2017, market demand for mobile app development services will grow at least five times faster than internal IT organizations' capacity to deliver them."

This is especially true for mission- and asset-critical applications that staff need on a daily basis to complete their job. For these types of apps, a smart alternative is to invest in a best-of-breed application to meet a growing demand.

Developing enterprise mobile applications is one thing. Deploying and ensuring your staff will use those apps is a whole different ball game.

But unless the solution gets high rates of end-user acceptance across your enterprise, the opportunity is lost.
