Buyer's Handbook: Discover the leading mobile app development platforms Article 1 of 6

Mobile app development tools serve a variety of business organizations

Before the mobile computing era, organizations only needed a website in order to promote, sell and interact with customers at a high volume and on a high-quality basis. Today, however, every enterprise needs to be mobile.

Mobile is quickly overtaking desktop computing, not only in terms of mainstream usage, but also within the enterprise. The advent of BYOD, as well as a multitude of cloud-enabled productivity apps, has given the workforce a new way of getting the job done.

Organizations must stay up to date with the times, but where do they start, and how do they find the right mobile app development platform? How do they choose between Android, iOS and Windows? What are the pros and cons of each mobile application development tool?

This guide helps buyers with these complex decisions by comparing some of the top mobile operating systems while highlighting the must-know differences between iOS and Android platforms. Readers can then discover the benefits and drawbacks of both Android and iOS mobile app development platforms to know the full spectrum of options. Finally, the guide discusses how to choose cross-platform tools, as well as what to watch out for even after the final purchasing decision.

Whether an organization wants to focus on secure data or ease of use; whether its development team works only with Visual Studio or is comprised of web developers; whether an organization is a large, globally distributed company or a 10-person startup, this buyer's guide is designed to help find the right mobile application development platform for any organization's unique environment.
