Mobile Application Development

Gartner predicts that by 2017, mobile apps will be downloaded more than 268 billion times, generating revenue of more than $77 billion and making apps one of the most popular computing tools for users across the globe. It also believes that there will be a long term shift away from native Mobile apps to Web apps as HTML5 becomes more capable. Nevertheless, native apps will continue to exist in several niche application areas.

The market for tools to create consumer and enterprise-facing apps is also growing rapidly and in this evolving technology landscape; Gartner expects over 20 million enterprise apps to be developed by 2018. The need to rapidly develop and deploy apps at scale underscores the importance of cross platform development tools & utilities over the coming years.
