In today’s society, we want information at the tip of our fingers: The ability to keep in constant contact with both co-workers and friends, access data and information in a second, and respond to emails from our desk and our couch, alike. Now more than ever, as society continues the shift toward mobile technology, mobile app developers attempt to stay one step ahead of trends and introduce the newest and best software solutions to businesses and consumers. And while predicting the future may be a good trait to have in this field, the ability to adapt to change as well as think outside the box also tops the charts.

While this growth includes the ever-popular Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, having work at our fingertips has definitely expanded the mobility for business pros across the nation. As this trend continues to grow, app developers are going to need to integrate mobile apps into their organization’s IT strategy and determine the best areas to transition from legacy to mobile apps.
