A new approach to design

Designers and developers alike have been forced to adapt their skills for a Post-PC era. In recent years, PC shipments have reduced dramatically thanks to the popularity of smartphones, tablets and mobile apps. With an increased demand for software that works well on a mobile device, designers have revamped their approach to creating intuitive user interfaces (UIs) and content.

Touch-screen technology has effectively replaced the mouse for mobile devices, which means traditional page elements and functional features must react to a fingertip rather than a mouse click. This factor forces mobile designers to abandon some of their instincts related to desktops in favor of mobile-optimized techniques.

Varying screen sizes, multiple operating systems (OSes), and the quality performance of mobile apps have resulted in new approaches from mobile designers. And those new approaches are being carried over into the increasingly mobile workforce.

The tools that business people use to accomplish tasks, land sales and run departments are currently undergoing a tremendous period of innovation. At Icreon Tech, enterprise clients know full well the importance of providing their employees with a powerful and productive software application.

Throughout their work with international logistics companies, retail brands and non-profit organizations, they've seen the transformative ability of effective enterprise software firsthand. The advent of mobile apps, innovative approaches to design for touch-screen devices, and the use of cloud computing have fundamentally altered the landscape of enterprise software.

In this slideshow, you'll find a list of the top trends in enterprise technology as well as an explanation for how such trends contribute to a well-oiled operation.
