Thoughts on Gartner Releases 2015 Mobile App and Development Predicts


  1. Hey Robert,

    Thanks for the update. Sounds about right. IT developers are always having to implement the latest mobile trends (which are always changing).

    At the enterprise level, it will be interesting to see how business applications evolve with the shift towards hybrid cloud computing solutions and infrastructure as a service too.

    Would be happy to connect with you,
    Dennis

    Thanks Robert. Given the number of reports about hacking and information leaks this year, I think enterprises and app developers would also be focusing more on improving the security in 2015.
