moTwin Survey Reveals Enterprise Applications Are Not Moving to Mobile Fast Enough, iOS Most Popular Platform

Cost, Time and Resources are Deterrents Despite Strong Desire to Deploy Mobile Apps; Most Planning to Move to Mobile In Next Two Years

PALO ALTO, CALIFORNIA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/22/13 -- moTwin, a leading mobile application development platform (MADP) provider for business applications, today identified lack of resources, lack of mobile expertise and difficulty integrating with back-end systems as the key barriers to migrating mobile applications. The findings, released as part of a survey of more than 150 companies, show that despite the explosion of smart phones and tablets, many companies have still not moved their consumer, employee or B2B enterprise applications to mobile devices, potentially missing a significant opportunity for use, productivity and revenue. These respondents also indicated that the projected "mobilizing" cost is as much as 10x the size of their currently allocated budgets for mobile application development.

"This survey clearly identifies the need for a mobile application platform that can cut the cost and complexity of migrating enterprise applications to mobile devices," said Claude Lemardeley, founder and CEO of moTwin. "With a development time of 8-12 weeks instead of 8-12 months, our development platform addresses the time, cost, resource and security concerns identified in the survey, and enables IT executives to more quickly move their applications to mobile platforms."

moTwin is a fast-growing provider of mobile application platform software and support services for the financial services, retail, media and entertainment, healthcare, and telecommunications industries. While most app providers have focused on client-side development of simple applications, moTwin takes an entirely different approach with a unique two-tier architecture approach. By allowing development at the server level, the company enables fast development and deployment on all platforms as well as flexible management of scalable mobile applications.

"MADP technology vendors provide a broad set of capabilities to support business apps for mobile employees, business customers and consumers across a broadening range of mobile devices," said Ian Finley, research vice president of Gartner, Inc. "According to Gartner Research(i), IT buyers will need to match their team's application development requirements with the broad range of capabilities offered by the various MADP vendors before they can make sound purchasing decisions."

Details of the Survey

The 146 respondents, selected from Mobile Enterprise Magazine readership, consist of primarily IT managers and CIOs that come from a variety of industries including manufacturing, transportation, government, healthcare and banking. A complete copy of the survey can be found at www.motwin.com/survey-497.html. The data collected provides details on current mobile development plans, including targeted platforms and timing.

According to the survey:

--  Nearly 30 percent of responding companies have not moved any of their
    applications to mobile platforms, while an additional 38 percent have
    only converted 10 percent of their applications. Yet, over the next two
    years, nearly half of the respondents want to convert 51-100 percent of
    their applications to mobile. 
--  Nearly half of the respondents see iOS as the most popular mobile
    platform, while 26 percent selected Google® Android(TM) platform and
    18 percent selected Microsoft® Windows platform. Only 3.7 percent
    selected the BlackBerry® platform. 
--  More than 45 percent of respondents plan to adopt HTML 5 for their
    mobile strategy. 
--  A surprising 57 percent of respondents noted that they have less than
    1000 active users for their mobile applications, implying most of the
    current mobile apps are focused on employees instead of consumers. 
--  The expected cost of mobile application development was listed by nearly
    half the respondents as $25,000 (US) to more than $100,000 (US), while
    nearly 25 percent list their budgets as less than $10,000 (US).

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises.
