In 2017, there were over 197 billion mobile downloads of mobile apps — over 500 million downloads per day. Mobile applications are the magic behind the success of the consumer smartphone — games, social networking, music & video as well as lifestyle and productivity apps. Without these apps, a smartphone is just a “dumbphone” with lousy battery life.
Mobile apps are seeing the same success in the enterprise market as they are in the consumer market. Over the next 5 years, the global mobile workforce is expected to grow by almost 30%, but in that same period the mobile enterprise business applications market will grow by over 70%. Some other interesting factoids about enterprise mobile apps include:
- Half of remote workers have more than five apps on their work devices.
- In 2016, businesses created 10.6 apps (up from 4.7 in 2015), but the average deployment size for each app was only 321 users.
- Enterprise demand for mobile app development will grow at least five times faster than internal IT organizations' capacity to deliver them.
Today’s businesses only use a few apps, but they want a lot more. Businesses are starved for custom line-of-business (LOB) applications to streamline their important workflows. Unfortunately, most companies do not have the internal resources to develop the LOB apps that they require, and outsourcing development can cost upwards of $170k to develop a single app. This discrepancy, the difference between how many apps a business wants, and what they are able to deliver is often referred to as the “App Gap.”
