10 Best Practices for Mobilizing Enterprise Applications

10 Best Practices for Mobilizing Enterprise Applications

As business users increasingly turn to smartphones and tablets to do their jobs, enterprise application development teams are facing increasing pressure to turn out mobile versions of the apps those workers use every day. Regev Yativ, president and CEO of Magic Software Americas, offers the following best practices for developers working to mobilize enterprise apps:

  1. Start small, with just two or three key applications.
  2. Design for short attention spans.
  3. Take full advantage of the mobile device, including the GPS, the phone and the camera.
  4. Leverage back-end data properly–use APIs instead of connecting to databases directly.
  5. Personalize the user experience.
  6. Use a native look and feel.
  7. Remember that legacy applications are not obsolete.
  8. Run beta testing before you roll it out to everyone.
  9. Keep it simple.
  10. Keep up with the technology.
