Considerations for Delivery of
an Enterprise Mobile App Portfolio

Are packaged mobile apps from enterprise software vendors failing to keep pace with the internal demand for employee-facing apps?

Employees are challenged with using ERP and CRM systems that do not translate well on mobile devices. To combat these issues, IT often invests in packaged mobile applications from enterprise software vendors that fail to meet all organizational requirements, are slow, complex and expensive.

In this research report, Gartner includes a case study on ViaSat, a PowWow Mobile customer. Faced with growing employee demands, lack of resources and minimal budget for internal employee apps, ViaSat leveraged the PowWow SmartUX Platform for their Rapid Mobile App Development (RMAD) needs.
