Market research firm Gartner is reporting that enterprises are spending only 10 percent of their development budgets on mobile development. That’s a 2 percent decrease since last year.
“Demand for mobile apps in the enterprise is growing, but the urgency to scale up mobile app development doesn’t yet appear to be a priority for most organizations,” said Adrian Leow, principal research analyst at Gartner. “This must change, particularly given employees often have the autonomy to choose the devices, apps and even the processes to complete a task. This places an increasing amount of pressure on IT to develop a larger variety of mobile apps in shorter time frames.”
Several other firms, including Red Hat, Accenture, Telerik, Forrester and Outsystems, have published studies that found similar trends.
