Adobe, one of our Enterprise Partners, was recently recognized as a Leader in Gartner’s 2016 Magic Quadrant for Mobile App Development Platforms. 2016 marks the fourth year that Adobe has been honored with this recognition.
Gartner evaluated 17 vendors on a wide range of criteria, including cross-platform development, ability to deploy and manage apps across the lifecycle, ability to support multiple architectures and standards, and proof of a solid understanding of IT requirements.
Additionally, Gartner reviewed vendors’ overall viability, innovation, execution, and track record across customer experiences.
Expanding Mobile App Landscape
There’s no question that the demand for mobile apps continues to grow exponentially. Approximately 95 billion apps were downloaded in the last year across iOS and Google Play, according to Apple and Google. And consider the 7.2 million people who downloaded Pokémon Go within the first week of its launch.
Aside from the gaming and virtual reality use cases, more organizations are developing mobile apps, and yet they’re challenged by the fragmented and complicated development environment.
Mobile app development is undergoing a similar evolution that website developers experienced 15 to 20 years ago. Instead of everything going through a webmaster when updates are needed, content and app updates now often fall on the dev team. This is a perfect case for when Adobe Experience Manager Mobile can help.
