Push notifications, search, location-based features – consumers have grown very cozy with having such features in their mobile and web apps. And now, they’re expecting them in business apps, too. What’s an enterprise app developer to do? This week, Adam Fingerman (@afingerman), Chief Experience Officer and Co-founder of the mobile app design and development company ArcTouch, joins The New Builders podcast to help answer this question and discuss the ongoing consumerization of enterprise apps.
During the conversation, Adam provides his take on the biggest challenges in making enterprise apps function more like consumer apps (03:58), how data privacy and security concerns in the enterprise impact consumerization (06:53), what is to come with the IoT and new ‘smart communities’ (08:18), IT hurdles to bringing new data sources into enterprise apps (12:27), and his recommendations for developers planning to work in larger enterprises (16:40).
