If you've ever wondered what Mumba looks like then now is your chance to take a look.

One of the most important strategic aspects is the concept of building and deploying many micro apps compared to just focusing on one single app with a single interface to 'rule them all'. Mumba's new article titled "One App for Everything Versus Many Micro Apps" takes a detailed look at this hot topic and is a must read for any person involved in mobile strategy.

In other industry news, Gartner released a report highlighting that only 10% of IT budget is currently being spent on enterprise mobility in 2016 - read our response to this research.

One App, One Interface vs Many Micro Apps

Gartner: Enterprise Mobility spend is down this year

We recently published a blog on Gartner's latest research that indicates overall enterprise IT budget for enterprise mobility is 10% for 2016, down 2% from last year.

mc jul gartWith all the productivity enhancements and overhead reductions resulting from mobility, it is interesting to learn that Australian businesses are slow to capitalise on the solutions available.

We at Mumba believe that one of the key factors behind slow adoption is the costs and complexity involved in mobile app development for enterprise.

Fortunately, our goal is to deliver true mobility at a fraction of the cost when compared to traditional alternatives and we are already seeing a positive response to the Mumba solution as we overcome the various obstacles that have historically impeded adoption.

If you are interested in learning more please don't hesitate to contact us to discuss how we can be of assistance.
