Top 4 Emerging Trends Impacting the Mobile Application Development Platform Market From 2016-2020: Technavio

Technavio’s latest report on the global mobile application development platform market provides an analysis on the most important trends expected to impact the market outlook from 2016-2020. Technavio defines an emerging trend as a factor that has the potential to significantly impact the market and contribute to its growth or decline.

 
The global mobile application development platform market was valued USD 13.75 billion in 2015 and is foreseen to reach USD 45.95 billion by the end of 2020, growing at a CAGR of 27.29%.

Mobile application development platform solutions are IT solutions and services specifically designed to build, test, and run enterprise and consumer mobile applications. Mobile-first strategy in enterprises and the latest IT trends such as BYOD policies are powering the growing adoption of mobile application development solutions. Enterprises have been using mobile applications to manage their operational and business processes fluently. Mobile applications provide convenience, great user experience, functionalities, features, and other add-ons which have created significant demand for advanced mobile application development solutions such as DevOps.

The top four emerging trends driving the mobile application development platform market according to Technavio ICT research analysts are:

  • Emergence of DevOps
  • Mobile backend-as-a-service (MBaaS) on the rise
  • Increased adoption of BYOD and BYOA
  • Developers embracing Cloud IDE

Emergence of DevOps

At present, more than 39% of the global software development firms have implemented DevOps technology to manage end-to-end software development process. Software development firms are planning to implement the DevOps tools in the near future to develop software in a collaborative environment,” says Amit Sharma, a lead analyst at Technavio for research on IT professional services.

The major feature of DevOps is to automate the application testing and deployment processes. The automation in application development services reduces errors and reduces manual processes. This helps to speed up the application deployment process. For instance, the Chef Automate solution provided by Chef Software provides DevOps platform solution for mobile application developers to build, deploy, test, and automate the application development process.

Mobile backend-as-a-service (MBaaS) on the rise

MBaaS solutions are back-end services implemented through cloud computing IT deployment models. Strong back-end systems in the organizations form the key success factor to run the enterprises application for enhanced business performance. MBaaS services also help developers to build and install enterprises applications to store enterprise data. The emergence of technologies such as location-based services, beacon technologies, and Internet of Things require efficient enterprises back-end systems. Location-based services require navigation systems that can be accessed through mobile devices. Creating native applications for location-based services require flexible IT solutions.

Beacon technologies are used in industry verticals such as retail to enhance communication between shoppers and retailers. BaaS for beacon technologies, provided by Cubecon, helps developers to quickly integrate applications with beacon technologies. There is an exponential increase in IoT-enabled applications, which has created significant demand for mobile application development solutions. The adoption of MBaaS to manage IoT-enabled applications and to store enterprise data is increasing in enterprises.

Increased adoption of BYOD and BYOA

Enterprises have adopted BYOD and bring your own access (BYOA) policies in industry verticals such as healthcare and retail to encourage employees to use their personal mobile devices such as tablets and smartphones at the workplace. The BYOA policies in organizations have created a huge demand for enterprise application development services. The BYOD trend is increasing at an exponential rate. More than 58% of organizations have deployed enterprise applications to support their BOYD policies.

Vendors in the market have developed enterprise mobility management (EMM) solutions to manage BYOD policies in the enterprises. For instance, VMware Airwatch, EMM platform helps application developers to configure and manage enterprises applications,” adds Amit.

Developers embracing Cloud IDE

Cloud integrated development environment (IDE) solutions are another form of cloud-based application development services where developers work in a collaborative environment. Web IDE solutions are delivered over cloud computing platform for the development of software applications for mobile phones, tablets, PCs, and software development projects. IDE tools are widely used by full-stack software developers, front-end software developers, back-end software developers, community developers, and mobile application developers. Leading cloud computing firms such as AWS (Amazon Web Services) are providing cloud computing services to vendors to build IDE solutions, which can be delivered over cloud computing platforms.
