Embracing the Mobile Development Trends of 2016

    The Internet of APIs

    Whether you think the Apple Watch is a smartphone, a wearable, a sensor or a supercomputer with a really tiny screen, you are 100 percent right. Form factors are blurring the boundaries between mobile and IoT use cases. What both domains have in common is that applications are conceived, created and connected API-first. What sits behind the API – a “thing,” a “system,” or a “service” – doesn’t matter as much as how you can interface with it. REST-based and real-time APIs aren’t a luxury anymore, they’re table stakes.

    Recommendation:  Research API management best practices and vendors. Don’t build or buy any more apps without a solid, public, documented API.

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.
