    Why Xamarin is the Future of Enterprise Mobile App Development

    In the modern era, IT has become one of the most powerful assets for any business. Enterprises that are leveraging maximum out of IT tools and infrastructure are the ones that have created a competitive advantage for their brand over rivals. IT and its proper implementation can offer any business three distinct advantages – increased productivity, optimisation of business process and most importantly drawing maximum advantage from Big Data (a concept that is taking off and would determine the future of any business). Enterprise apps sit at the core of these benefits as they have lent a new dimension to how businesses optimize their workflow. They are fuelling growth for companies that have adopted this new model of working.

    Working smart is the new working hard. Today smartphones and tablets have transformed the entire corporate landscape. They allow data collected from field workers to be converted into information in real-time. The adoption of smart devices and enterprise mobility solutions is helping businesses across the board cut operational costs, take instant and informed decisions and improve efficiency in their supply chain. In short, to remain relevant and competitive you can’t say ‘No’ to enterprise apps. But with so many app frameworks and platforms to choose from, how do you overcome the puzzle. The answer lies in Xamarin app development, and there are good reasons to put your money here. Let’s find out why Xamarin is the future of enterprise mobile app development.

    Native Experience in Cross Platform Apps

    It is common for businesses to be torn between developing native apps and cross platform apps. While native apps offer great user experience, cross-platform apps solve the problem related to data sharing and also cut down on development costs. What Xamarin does is it addresses the most common pitfall in cross-platform apps – the problem of native experience. So the codes can be ‘written once and run anywhere’ without creating any hiccups with the native user experience. So a developer can write the core fundamentals once, and this can be integrated with platform specific interface. So the end users can use Android, iOS or Windows powered device but they would always enjoy the native experience.

    Expanding Offline Usability

    As businesses grow and reach remote corners of the world, the limitations of technology are coming to light. Enterprises that are working in areas with no Internet connectivity often complain about how enterprise apps tend to become handicap is such environments. This was one of the themes at the recently concluded Xamarin Evolve 2016 (the largest cross-platform mobile conference in the world). And it is quite interesting to note the kind of solutions that Xamarin developers from around the world have come up with. Xamarin is facilitating the development of apps that reduce the dependence on network traffic. These apps can smartly switch between connected and not-connected areas and allow access to a majority of their functions. There would be a greater focus on this problem in the future in the Xamarin community, and significant breakthroughs are expected.

    Sharing and Collaboration

    There is neither the need nor the joy in reinventing the wheel and since early days the folks at Xamarin have realized it. The Xamarin Component Store allows developers around the world to collaborate with each other and share different components. This ensures that enterprises don’t have to bear the additional cost of ‘reinventing the wheel’ as a lot of free and paid components are easily available. Apart from the cost advantage this also helps in cutting down the concept to delivery time. Remember even a few days can matter a lot in today’s competitive business environment.

    Increasing Acceptance in the Industry

    Last but not the least there has been increased acceptance for Xamarin powered enterprise apps in the industry. If you have kept a tab on the industry, you would know how Apple disliked apps that weren’t built using its own SDK. It seldom endorsed such apps in the past but times change fast in the technology industry and recently Apple even shared the stage with Microsoft during one of its major product launches. This is being seen as a crowning moment for Xamarin. Other giants including SAP and IBM have already collaborated with Xamarin, and this is the signal of a shift towards cross-platform enterprise mobility apps.

    The scope and possibilities with Xamarin powered Enterprise Mobility Solutions are immense. In fact, clients across industries have woken up to the immense benefits that this platform offers them regarding scalability and flexibility to be in sync with the demands of the market. If you want to get the best out of this platform, you need to hire a skilled Xamarin development Partner with an eye on the future.
