ACA Mobile Trend Report 2015
Download your free Mobile Trend Report today! A survey of 5.778 Mobile developers.
Some key findings :
- Forget ‘Mobile First’, Embrace ‘API First’
In the survey’s starkest finding, nearly three quarters of developers (72.4 percent) say that getting mobile-optimized access to back end data is becoming the single greatest challenge to building apps. When asked to rank the chief difficulties in getting data access, the work of building and deploying mobile APIs took the “prize,” with 46.7 percent of developers naming this the top bottleneck.
- Leaders vs. Laggards: Lessons Learned
The survey also provides an opportunity to compare the habits of self-identified mobile “leaders” and “laggards.” Among the biggest differences? Release velocity. 42.6 percent of leaders report a weekly or bi-weekly app release cycle. Among the laggards, this number drops to 9.5 percent.
