A management guide for software companies
With the shift to mobile, there has been a dramatic change in the way that people work today. Usage and devices vary across industries – for example, in construction, site managers are moving to tablets, and in real estate, employees are making more use of their smartphones in client meetings and open houses.
With applications that were built with the desktop in mind, navigation and usability are often compromised. Additionally, key interface elements may not render correctly – for instance, pop- ups can get cut off and there can be challenges with orientation. Menus can also be problematic on mobile since there is limited space.
It is important to understand the needs of your users and develop applications or platforms based on their specific requirements. For vertical market software companies, not having a mobile strategy today is equivalent to not believing that Microsoft® Windows® would replace DOS several decades ago.
Here is a guide that will help you:
- Decide between responsive, native and hybrid applications.
- Determine your device compatibility based on customer behavior.
- Understand the technology stacks associated with each application type.
