Recent studies by Gartner indicate that more than a quarter of enterprises worldwide have not built or customized any mobile applications over the past 12 months.

Gartner said the figure was high, but still lower than the previous year, with 39 percent of respondents in the 2016 study indicating that they had not built or allocated any mobile applications over the past 12 months.

“Companies are responding slowly to increasing the demand for mobile applications,” said Adrian Loew, research director at Gartner. “Many IT teams will face significant backlogs in application-related business that need to be tracked and terminated, complicating new IT-centric business and increasing the risk of not doing business urgently. Development teams need to reconsider their priorities and limits on mobile application development or face greater risks of IT budget losses and the expected value of IT development. ”

According to the study, mobile application development companies have deployed eight mobile applications on average so far, a relatively stable percentage compared with 2016. On average, 2.6 mobile applications are currently under development, and 6.2 applications are planned to be developed over the course of the year. The next 12 months, which have not yet been developed.

“It is encouraging to see significant growth in the number of mobile applications being planned, but most of this growth is due to mobile web applications rather than native or hybrid mobile applications, indicating that some companies may be frustrated by the development of Mobile applications, and instead refocus on responsive Web sites to meet mobile needs. ”

Gartner revealed that 52% of the respondents had begun exploring or testing the uses of interactive textual interactive aids, known as bots or chatbots or the default helper in mobile application development, a relatively large number due to the novelty of these technologies.

Gartner points out that these technologies as a technology beyond the applications of the era will become the traditional applications (downloaded from application stores and installed on mobile devices) is just one of the multiple functional methods and services to be provided to roaming users. Application development and application developers need to understand the various technologies of the post-application era that are emerging to ensure the success of their mobile application strategies and keep pace with developments in the application technology world.

According to the study, the main obstacles to the development of mobile initiatives are resources such as lack of funds, hours of work and skills.

In terms of expenditure, the study revealed that the actual technical expenditure of enterprises on mobile applications is lower than all expectations. Although 68% of enterprises expect increased spending on mobile applications, average spending on the total software budget is only 11%.
