The App Explosion

  • An ‘app for everything’
    • Your DA tracking software vendor is promising an app. So is your library software vendor. So are the asset management guys. So are…
    • DANGER. It’s an App Outbreak!!
  • Don’t confuse (exciting) individual consumer software trends with business needs – it happened before with PCs
  • Loss of your Information Brand – lack of consistency
  • Educating public & staff about 5 -10 different mobile services
  • An app may only work on specific devices
  • You’re at the mercy of your software providers
  • A big integration exercise looming down the track
slide4

The App Explosion

  • 2 New devices monthly
    • The mobile industry is moving extremely fast. New capability, new devices and new operating software Is coming out all the time.
    • DANGER – don’t lock yourself in
  • Committing to one platform limits opportunity
  • Supporting new devices will add to cost if you’re going alone
  • Will your traditional software vendor’s mobile app support new devices quickly?
slide5

The App Explosion

  • I’ll write my own
      • (I’ve got good people)…
    • Technical staff love the opportunity to get involved with mobile technology. It’s the new black.
    • DANGER – It isn’t easy doing commercial grade software in a perpetually moving complex delivery landscape
  • Delivering apps as a co-ordinated, auditable, supportable, robust framework for the future is a challenge.
  • Delivering functionality reliably yet quickly isn’t easy to do yourself
  • You’re exposed to knowledge resting with a few staff & them possibly leaving because they have even more marketable skills
  • You don’t get the benefit of an evolving platform being driven by input from many customers
slide6

The App Explosion

  • 4 I’ll just convert my existing site using CSS (cascading style sheets)
      • DANGER – Lost opportunities ahead
    • Superficially this can look cost effective, but CSS is a black art with mobile devices.
    • Good CSS skills are expensive and hard to pin down
    • Follows all the existing “big screen” navigation which isn’t appropriate for mobile users
    • CSS doesn’t take advantage of mobile device features like cameras, gps etc.
slide7

The App Explosion

  • 5 Delivering enterprise-level features
    • Robust, secure, auditable, scalable, supportable? Disconnected mode operation?
    • Embracing change in underlying systems?
    • DANGER – Will you incur extra costs making sure?
      • Disconnected mode is important for mobiles
      • Enterprise apps require enterprise-level features
      • Will your mobile delivery cope with change?
slide8

The App Explosion

  • 6 Long term costs and support
    • DANGER – Integration exercise ahead
      • Not acting soon to establish your mobile delivery strategy will result in a bigger integration exercise later (remember PCs!)
      • Get the greatest number of options for the lowest cost
      • Don’t lock yourself into any one technology
      • Look for hidden costs
      • Look out for people costs in supporting mobile delivery
      • Is your chosen platform well supported?
