Mobile Apps for the Working Class: A Talent Struggle
This IDC study, which was written for CIOs and other senior IT executives, discusses the current and future state of mobile talent management and provides guidance on how to define and overcome the challenges it presents. It also describes the various types of skills required to design and build well-designed quality mobile software that meets the business needs of those using it."IDC believes that even greater pressure will be placed on IT to provide mobile thought leadership, deliver state-of-the-art mobile applications, and fend off vendors that are trying to replace internal IT shops as the mobile development resource of choice," says Eric Bloom, adjunct research advisor for IDC's Research Network. Mike Jennett, vice president of Mobility Strategies, says, "IDC is predicting worldwide mobility spending to reach $1.85 trillion by 2019. As this growth in mobility spending continues to expand, employees are requiring the same high-quality user experience from internally developed mobile apps as they expect from their commercially available counterparts."
