    Mobile and Integration Platforms Converge

    Most apps provide their value via the data that flows through them, yet connecting the app to the systems that matter can take 10 times longer than building the app itself. Yes, you might be able to drag and drop your way to a basic app in minutes, but ensuring it can access sensitive customer or supply chain information, meet compliance and security standards, and scale across potentially dozens of integrations ranging from legacy systems in the data center to public cloud-based systems – that’s a whole other story. As a result, many mobile platform vendors are shoring up their integration capabilities. Similarly, integration platform vendors are seeing many of their use cases now being driven by mobile and are looking to add corresponding turnkey mobile capabilities. Expect technologies like iPaaS and MBaaS to converge in 2016.

    Recommendation: Ask your mobile vendors about integration and your integration vendors about mobile capabilities. Work with the ones that have a compelling and credible story.

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.
