Top 5 Enterprise App Development Trends for 2020
1. Efficient Remote Work Culture due to 5G
Remote working has become a popular culture among businesses today, especially during the present times when COVID-19 has given a boost to it. As per Statista, 38% of companies work in a fully remote culture. The introduction of 5G in the global market will make the trend even more relaxed and popular in the coming time. 5G enterprise apps are going to be accepted at a higher rate due to their improved speed and security standards.
Wearable and IoT connected devices will operate more swiftly owing to this cutting edge technology.
2. Reimagine the reality with AR/VR
Usually referred to as sister technologies, AR and VR are blending the lines between the real and virtual worlds. According to Artillery Intelligence research, global revenue of AR/VR usage is expected to hit $27.4 billion by the year 2023. This is just the beginning, these technologies have enormous market potential, and right now, it’s only in the initial stages of unlocking.
AR/ VR offers a new method of interacting with colleagues, customers, and the world around us. Not only interaction but enterprises are using it in other areas like training, creating expansive workplaces, monitoring digital workplaces (remote working), etc.
Just Imagine, you’re in your bed and feeling the workplace; this is what AR/VR does!
Well, that’s a far-fetched fruit, but for now, we can say it is very well used to enhance enterprises’ efficiency.
3. Pay attention to UI/UX
The software industry is evolving rapidly. We are surrounded by solutions with an intuitive interface and slick designs.
Enterprise apps are defined as solutions that need to fulfill the requirements of a large organization. Employees in an enterprise are consumers in themselves, and they expect consumer-level designs in the applications they utilize. Having said that, a significant amount of effort must be made in the app’s design, aesthetics, and usability for refining individual experience. Remember, UI/UX design is not a one-time event; instead, it’s a continuous process.
4. Beacon Technology
Beacon technology gained attention from the moment Apple launched Bluetooth iBeacon devices in 2013. Two years later, Google stepped into the scene and drove $44billion in retail sales from this fantastic technology.
What are Beacons?
Beacons are small devices that are known for sending BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) signals to the nearby smartphones. After that, these one-way signals interact with the apps installed on the smartphone and trigger location-based alerts.
Enterprise applications are also making excellent use of this technology to boost their marketing efforts. They utilize it to send instant offers, discounts, and coupons on the users’ devices in the nearby vicinity. Overall, the technology is used to streamline business operations and maintain a high level of interaction with customers, which in turn improvises the company’s revenue.
5. IoT enabled Apps Save Time
IoT has a significant role to play in large scale organizations, or say enterprises. Developers utilize this technology for creating IoT capable applications to enhance their workplace capabilities.
For instance, IoT capable solutions integrated with sensors may inform employees about the devices’ failure. This not only enhances workplace safety but also results in saving time and resources.
Thanks to new technologies, new elements can be added into enterprise apps, which leads to improved user experience, higher productivity, and, eventually, better ROI. The trends mentioned above induce fierce competition amongst app developments and promote remote culture without compromising on productivity.
