Mobile Application Devlopment

Developing enterprise mobile applications that interact with IT systems and applications is more challenging than building mobile marketing apps and games for direct consumption. Enterprise mobile applications require integration with existing enterprise computing systems such as databases, legacy applications and Web services. Tweaking a Web client to fit the hardware constraints of a mobile device is not enough. Cintel team has been gaining credibility working closely with customers by building the effective mobile/tablet front end for SaaS and Cloud hosted applications or building interfaces to rich internet applications which require a lot of technical skills in scripting and coding.

The smaller screen sizes, decreased storage space, reduced memory, lower computing power and unreliable network connections aren't the only things that make mobile application development different than developing traditional Web applications.

The differences are largely driven by users experiencing variations in the conditions in which they interact with the app. While most enterprise applications are accessed from a desk in the office, mobile enterprise applications are more frequently

accessed out in the field, where workers are focused on completing one particular task and moving on. As the technology driving mobile devices improves and mobile users' expectations change, the landscape of mobile application development changes as well. Application developers must stay informed of mobile application development trends to avoid getting left behind.

The need for mobile applications has already reached slow-to-change industries such as financial services. Our customers are combining cloud resources and mobile application development. In fact, some cloud providers are now offering backend-as-a-service, which are cloud infrastructure services specifically designed to support mobile client apps.

Consumerization -- the trend of business devices and applications following the path outlined by consumer-focused technologies such as tablets, smartphones and mobile apps -- is a huge force in mobile application development today. The mobile workforce now expects the same convenience from business apps that their consumer apps have given them. Bring your own device (BYOD) policies have broadened the landscape for some organizations, while others have opted to keep enterprise mobile devices under the control (and the budget) of central IT.
