Exploring the Developer Skills Needed to Build Apps with MobileCaddy

The MobileCaddy framework removes a great deal of the hard work for developers tasked with building sophisticated enterprise mobile apps. This means the business investing in the app won’t need to seek new developer skills or spend to recruit new team members thanks to MobileCaddy, and the developers can focus entirely on delivering the app itself. This article will detail the many ways the framework makes this possible, giving the business complete confidence it will be getting the app it needs.

You’ll always need capable, competent people to build a mobile app which can add value to an organisation beyond the obvious improvements to basic worker productivity. That’s why finding a solution which allows the people you already have to rely on their existing skills and focus on delivering that app, rather than working on tedious, time-consuming development, is so important.

With the MobileCaddy Application Delivery Framework, developers can quickly and easily build these more advanced mobile apps using a familiar set of skills, as the solution removes the need for specialist development, and provides helpful guidance across all stages of the project.

Here, we’ll answer key questions our partners and clients ask us about the skills needed to begin a mobile project on the Salesforce platform using the MobileCaddy Application Delivery Framework.

Looking Beyond the Limitations of Salesforce1 Mobile Apps

mobile-appsFor businesses looking to leverage the Salesforce platform to mobilise operations, enabling the now inescapable demand for ‘deskless work,’ it’s common for Salesforce1 mobile apps to be the vehicle chosen to make the first attempt.

Diesel: Learn How This Leading Global Brand Achieved Mobile App Success

diesel-case-studyWhile enterprise mobility may have transcended the status of ‘buzzword’ to be recognised as a genuine strategic business practice many years ago, most analysts and experts feel it’s a trend which is still in its infancy.

Why? Well, despite the vast majority of employees now demanding mobile technology in their respective workplaces – fuelled by the consumer habits and expectations of their everyday lives – some business leaders are still struggling to fully embrace enterprise mobility.

But with all the early attention on enterprise mobility being given to mobile devices, mobile business strategies are now beginning to mature and evolve to focus on the applications those devices support. This app-centric trend is where the real driving force has originated recently for enterprise mobility to become more than just a strategic business practice, but an absolute necessity for those businesses to survive in the long-term.

Designing for Success: Countdown to the Salesforce World Tour, Part 4

Designing-for-successAs our series of exclusive insights from members of the MobileCaddy team continues, I sat down with our Senior Mobile Technical Architect, Todd Halfpenny, to discuss what he feels is the most important thing for business leaders to get right to successfully build a mobile app which delivers value for their employees.

Todd explained: “Essentially, the design of an application – not just in terms of its graphical representation, but how it’s actually built, and the UX flows which are thought about – is the key thing in mobile at the moment.

Because users are working across so many different devices now, especially with BYOD becoming more and more popular, you have to be able to cater for all sorts of different screen sizes and different hardware with your design decisions.
