Smartphones play an integral part of our day-to-day lives in this present era. Most use social media sites, listen to music, read articles, check emails and change projects etc. Each and all are executed determinedly from apps installed on our mobile gadgets, respectively. There are currently more than two billion people throughout the world who own a smartphone which is used for multiple purposes. They include users of all kind i.e. individuals who are just using gadgets for fun or enterprises and companies that have a serious use of these gadgets for their growth. The year 2020, like all its predecessors, is bound to see many improvements in the field of enterprise app development. Also, the enterprise app development companies will be willing to adopt these new trends not only for the enterprise using these apps but also for their own wellbeing. A number of custom enterprise IT solutions are bound to come up. This article discusses the enterprise app development trends that will be most sought after in the year 2020.
Google Accelerated Mobile Pages Project:
Google AMP is a website publishing platform that allows its users to create web pages that will load faster on mobile phones as compared to pages published with other technologies. More than 25 million domains have released more than 1.5 billion AMP pages since its launch in early 2016. If you visit a Google AMP page by searching it from Google, these pages will then load the fastest as Google hosts these pages on to its servers and then serves the required content just similar to Facebook Instant Articles. This immediate move has already altered the entire development of phone app trends, particularly from both sides of the SEO and web perspectives.
Augmented Reality (AR) often adds digital elements to a live view, using the camera on a smartphone. Examples of experience with augmented reality include Snapchat lenses and the Pokemon Go game. Virtual reality (VR) on the other hand implies an experience of total immersion that shuts out the physical world. Using VR apps like HTC Vive, Oculus Rift or Google Cardboard, users can be transported to a number of real-world and imaginary worlds such as a squawking penguin colony or even riding a dragon’s back. For enterprises that want to develop games for their users, these two technologies are going to see a rise in the near future although they are not anything new to the users of today.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) has revolutionized IT. The new information technology revolution has shaped the way that we work. AI algorithms have recently gained close researchers ‘ attention and have also been successfully applied to solve engineering problems. Nonetheless, because of the random nature of the search approaches, AI algorithms require significant computing time for large and complex problems. As such, there is a requirement to build an efficient algorithm to find solutions in real-world applications with limited resources, time, and money. In the coming future, AI will be applied to fields that include Artificial neural network, Computer vision, Evolutionary algorithms, Swarm intelligence, Pattern recognition, Image processing and analysis, Natural language handling, Global optimization, ML, Knowledge illustration, Social intelligence, Control theory, Uncertain reasoning, and Mathematical tools used in AI.
Cloud Driven Apps:
The number of mobile applications available for download in different app stores is growing at an alarming rate. But not all of these apps are created equally. Mobile apps since their inception have been native i.e. users have to download these applications to their computers or mobiles to use them. Cloud apps are becoming more popular nowadays and for good reasons. Cloud apps live on servers and are accessed via web browsers. Benefits of using cloud-driven include write-once and use on multiple platforms, low-cost of development, saving on time, no installations required, secure data storage, continuous database integration, scalability, and data recovery. Cloud services are perfect because you can simultaneously install an app for both iOS and Android platforms. Native app development is costly and takes a long time. Yet cloud apps are less costly and can be put onto the market much more easily.
Enterprise and Micro Applications-Further development:
An enterprise freeware’s main objective is to restructure, control critical business processes overall. A micro-app usually seeks to fulfill a set of specified operations. These two are performing their respective aims successfully and are expected to grow in the future. A recent report exclaims that about seventy-seven percent of entrepreneurs are pursuing corporate shareware; sixty-six percent also raise additional investment.
Wearable smart devices, more commonly referred to as wearables, and have gained a steady track record among consumers over the past decade. Smartwatches like the Apple Watch are probably the best-known wearables, but many other types of wearables have emerged, and are still emerging. Wearables from head-mounted displays (HMDs) to clothing and jewelry are available on the market. Such tools not only perform certain basic computing tasks, similar to laptops and smartphones but are also able to perform special health tracking services (such as calorie tracking and monitoring the number of hours a person sleeps) as a result of being in contact with the user’s body. In the near future, companies may see wearables emerging more and more frequently in their workplaces, and therefore need to consider whether they could utilize these technologies to build a more efficient and connected workplace. Some of these wearables are Smartwatches, Fitness Trackers, Smart Jewellery, Smart Clothing, Implantables, and Head-Mounted Displays.
Internet of Things:
After the boom of.com, everyone is watching the next big thing that will make fortunes. The world since the advent of the internet has never been the same. Statisticians may have many suggestions to make but the next big move that will shape the coming time will depend upon the Internet of Things. The Internet of Things (IoT) is here and is rapidly becoming a topic of interest amongst technology companies and business communities. The speculation isn’t unfounded as there’s enough evidence to support the “Internet of Things” performance over the coming years. By 2020, 26 billion devices are expected to be part of the internet of things. Hardware, software and communication infrastructure are the fundamental components that make the Internet of Things a reality. In the coming years, IoT will be effective as the telecommunications sector grows and becomes more productive, and broadband internet becomes widely available. With advancements in technology it is now much cheaper to produce the requisite sensors with built-in Wi-Fi capabilities that make connecting devices less expensive.
Most notably, the use of smartphones has crossed all expected limits and the telecommunications industry is already working on its toes to satisfy its customers by developing their networks. Since IoT devices do not need separate communication, IoT technology is very cheap and highly achievable as the existing one building.
Beacon is a small device that very often emits a radio signal and advertises itself in a small location. Internet-enabled devices, such as mobile phones, can discover that signal. Once the phone receives the signal, it starts a corresponding app and loads content specific to the location of that beacon. As beacons are built for use in a very small area, this makes them perfect for user-friendly, location-targeted content that is hyper specific. For example, if you were running a music festival, you could have a beacon at each stage, through your festival or company app, which could pull the set times of that stage on people’s mobiles up. Bluetooth Low Energy (the Beacons underlying technology) is a specific type of Bluetooth communication, limited to approximately 70 m (although there are longer-range beacons). Because only very small amounts of data are sent over the network, the low energy tag remains, which also ensures that the beacons themselves hardly consume any electricity.
Generally speaking, chatbots are automated ones that claim to be a unique way of communication in order to give users hands to meet needs. Chatbots like Alexa, Google assistant Siri and other forms are listed where you can explore them on websites.
With the year moving ahead, the technologies listed above are also going in the same direction. Users, whether individuals or entrepreneurs are going to benefit from the use of these technologies. We are going to see a lot of uses that will accrue from these technologies in the coming years.
