Comments on the News
“The emergence of mobile enterprise applications, which will drive enterprise mobility, create new ways of working, and transform existing business processes will be a major trend in 2014. For organizations that already have a mobility strategy in place, the next phase will be to start mobilizing as many internal processes as possible to allow workers to perform their core tasks (beyond email) from whichever device they have to hand, from wherever they are,” said Richard Absalom, senior analyst, Ovum.
Today, people spend more time on mobile apps than on desktops, according to Comscore. In fact, smartphones are expected to have 70.5 percent of the connected device market share in 2017, according to IDC. While consumer apps dominate the time people spend on their smartphones, it’s a single app, Facebook, that cracked the mobile code. Consumers spend more than 17 percent of their time in Facebook, more than any other mobile app. Facebook has seen unprecedented mobile adoption because it is a platform that is supported by a robust app ecosystem, it is relevant for each individual user and is connected to every user’s social graph. But where are the enterprise apps that deliver the same value to business users?
With The New Salesforce1 Mobile App, Now Anyone Can Run Their Business from Their Phone
Enterprises have been slow to adopt mobile apps because they are hard to build for every mobile device, difficult to customize and challenging to connect to other apps and legacy systems. Now with the new Salesforce1 Mobile App, anyone can run their business from their phone. The new Salesforce1 Mobile App will deliver the most complete and customizable mobile experience in a single app for business users—just as the Facebook mobile app has done for consumers.
