We'll Crack Through This Code Tonight

Forrester Tech Tide Mobile Development

Mobile is the primary gateway to the customer for most businesses. The unique channel provides an always-on relationship with consumers that modern companies desire. Mobile technology decisions are unique to each business, but require careful consideration in order to meet the demands of modern consumers.

As the modern mobile ecosystem continues to evolve, mobile developers face greater challenges with choosing the right technologies, frameworks, and tools for implementation. In the recent Forrester Tech TideTM: Mobile Development, Q4 2022 report, Forrester examines the business value and maturity of 12 mobile development technologies to help mobile development professionals make informed decisions on their technology investment approach. According to the report, “Forrester surveyed technology decision-makers, suppliers, and other subject matter experts (SMEs) in [their] search for the most important mobile development technologies.”

Defining the Optimal Mobile Technology Strategy

In the report, Forrester evaluates twelve front-end mobile technologies that have broad market traction and are commercially available at enterprise scale. According to Forrester’s research, the twelve technologies that contribute to mobile development are:

  • AI-based UI testing
  • Low-code development platforms
  • Machine translation
  • WebAssembly-based solutions
  • Cloud-based mobile device labs
  • Cross-platform for mobile and web
  • Native widgets
  • Progressive web apps (PWAs)
  • Single-platform native environments
  • Cross-platform for mobile, web, and extended reality (XR)
  • New mobile OSes
  • Cross-platform without web support

The technologies were assessed by their business value, defined by expected ROI for an experienced development team and maturity in terms of enterprise adoption. Forrester then placed each technology into one of four categories:

  • Experiment: low maturity and low business value
  • Invest: low maturity and high business value
  • Maintain: high maturity and high business value
  • Divest: high maturity and low business value
