Survey: Back-End Integration, Security Are Top Mobile Development Challenges

Few enterprises are using MBaaS solutions.


Red Hat has released the results of a new survey on enterprise mobile development trends. "According to the findings, while mobile plays a role for 73 percent of organizations, nearly half of the respondents identify security (45 percent) and back-end integration (43 percent) as the top challenges for mobile app development," the company said. "Additional challenges identified by respondents include UI/UX design (35 percent), team collaboration (34 percent) and cost (24 percent)."

The survey found that only 30 percent of enterprises are using mobile back-end as a service (MBaaS) solutions, which simplify back-end integration.

In addition, 21 percent of those surveyed said they have begun internet of things (IoT) projects, 28 percent plan to do so in the coming year and 70 percent plan to do so within five years.
