IDC Analyst Connection: Inside the Minds of Enterprise Mobile App Developers

The success of smartphones introduced a new paradigm for developing applications that's having a broad and deep impact on application development tools and software architectures. The new paradigm, aside from its characteristic touchscreen user interface, relies on sets of granular apps, which individually carry fewer function points but utilize a variety of device sensors and a rich runtime with a notification architecture that connects to back-end cloud services. When compared with existing desktop or browser applications, this paradigm represents a new way for app developers to think about not only product design but also enterprise needs.
