Check out Gartner’s Jason Wong’s comments in Ramin Edmond’s article in the June issue of Tech Target’s Modern Mobility: Many organizations haven’t yet built their own apps because of the scarcity of developer talent and the extra expense it requires. Rapid mobile app development (RMAD) platforms low- and even no-code tools can help lighten that burden to build mobile applications. RMAD adoption is growing in the enterprise, because it has the potential to unleash app dev in a big way, says Jason Wong, principal research analyst at Gartner.

What does modern mobility mean to you? Modern mobility is a user-centric approach to the mobile experience and takes into account context across multiple channels and interaction surfaces.

Where is app development headed? Gartner predicts that by 2020, 70% of enterprise mobile apps will be developed without IT involvement. IT becomes an enabler, but not the one actually doing it. The lack of available app developer talent I still a big challenge for a lot of companies. This is why cross-platform tools are very important, and why rapid mobile app development is such an important trend.

How do RMAD platforms help IT? IT has control and visibility in the back end, but on the front end, mobile app creation can be done by business users with low- and no-code tools. That will unleash app dev in a big way. If marketing wants to run a campaign, they can quickly build a micro app, or HR could do it for recruiting campaigns, or other cases.
