We’ve discussed how Viziapps is disrupting mobile app development with the power of visual rapid mobile app design, data connectivity, and publishing. Let’s recap the key factors ViziApps provides.

Visually Design your Mobile App User Experience. Viziapps is a Visual platform for IT Professionals and Citizen Developers to easily design, test, and publish mobile apps for iOS or Android OS devices. All this through the Visual Design studio that supports all of the cool features that you want in your mobile app’s User Experience.

Connect Data Visually with ViziApps no coding drag ‘n drop connectors for 37 SQL databases, QuickBase, Google Drive, and Salesforce, as well as key now Internet of Things data sources. All this without having to learn how to code the data connection together. Just use the ViziApps Visual Mobile Design Studio.

Use Native Mobile Features like Camera integration into your app (take a picture and upload to your app), or Geolocation to know where your fleet of trucks is, or Signature Capture to know when your order has been received are all core features of the platform. When key new native phone business features are introduced, the Viziapps development team is there to bring it to you as part of the rapidly evolving platform. No longer do you have to go to a professional services firm for updates to take advantage of useful new phone and tablet features. Viziapps keeps you abreast of the changes taking place in mobile space.

Enable Offline Mobile App Use. More often than not, your mobile employees won’t have cell or Wi-Fi coverage everywhere they need to capture data with their mobile app. Viziapps Offline Sync captures all of the info; and when the mobile worker reconnects to wireless coverage, ViziApps Offline Sync automatically re-syncs the mobile app and backend databases. No more paper or the mobile worker’s mind required to capture data.

Do it all Securely. Viziapps protects the infrastructure and contents of your mobile apps. The platform is built on Amazon AWS using the highest level of security standards.

And all at Low Cost! ViziApps empowers you to build business mobile apps at 1/10th the time and cost of coded mobile app development. Priced on a low simple per app subscription basis, there’s no limit on the number of mobile app users, mobile app complexity, mobile app updates, data queries, and more!

Jack Gold is the founder and principal analyst at J. Gold Associates, LLC., an information technology analyst firm, covering the many aspects of business and consumer computing and emerging technologies. He just had an insightful on-target editorial in the Computerworld IDG Contributor Network entitled, “The great mobile app challenge”. Here’s a quick excerpt:

The demand for enterprise mobile apps has far outstripped most companies' ability to deploy even the most needed apps to the workforce. Enterprises face a real mobile app dilemma. They want their users mobilized, but are having a huge problem keeping up with the demand for the apps needed to satisfy their smartphone and tablets users. I have spoken with many enterprises, and the backlog of queued and/or user desired mobile apps is staggering. I estimate that no more than 15%-20% of proposed mobile apps actually get created and deployed, and in some companies the number is far less. There is no question that this has a negative impact on an organization’s need to maximize worker productivity.

This problem is a direct result of the difficulty in creating mobile apps. I see three major hurdles that most enterprises face. First, most companies are not adequately staffed with mobile developers and using more traditional desktop developers doesn’t work very well as mobile app development usually requires a specialized skill set.

Second, even if companies want to develop more mobile apps, most currently face a general lack of IT resources due to the reductions that have taken place over the past few years. Most IT organization resources go to maintaining existing production systems rather than creating new ones.

Third, and this is no small issue, the time to deployment of production mobile apps cannot take 12-18 months -- the typical amount of time it takes to deploy apps in the desktop world. This is inadequate for a mobile-oriented world. Apps must be completed in a matter of days or weeks to create true value for line of business needs.

What’s really needed is a way to enable the line of business units to create any needed apps quickly and without (or at least with minimal) IT resources. Most knowledge workers have been creating their own documents, presentations and spreadsheets for many years. The key is to take the mobile app development process to the knowledge worker at the line of business -- the one who knows what is needed to get the job done and to get the app completed and deployed in days or weeks. By raising the productivity of workers through targeted mobile apps, the potential ROI to the organization can be huge.
