Organizations are realizing the benefits of deploying custom applications for workers and potential customers alike. More employees are working from home as well. Mobile workers make up nearly one-third of the workforce in the U.S., the U.K., France and Germany, according to a recent survey published by Strategy Analytics. The trend seen in enterprises toward a diverse smartphone environment will continue to grow. Businesses will want to take advantage of that new work atmosphere to foster productivity, and custom software development can help.
"The continued growth of business mobile devices, BYOD, cloud, security, and business applications and contents will continue to drive the growth of the enterprise mobility market moving forward," said Gina Luk, senior analyst of mobile workforce strategies at Strategy Analytics.
