A new Appcelerator report says that the enterprise side of the mobile development industry is suffering from a lack of leadership. Its surveys found that 73 percent of enterprise application development teams have created five or fewer mobile apps. And 39 percent had just one mobile app or none at all. In addition, few enterprises have named a VP of mobility or a Chief Mobility Officer, despite the fact that 55 percent say that mobility is a key priority.
“Enterprises that have transformed to a mobile-first [perspective] have seen impressive results,” said Appcelerator’s Michael King. Enterprise IT managers seemed to agree, as 81 percent of those surveyed believed traditional companies in mature markets will be disrupted by mobile-first startups.
