Make a big splash with business apps 2015
Gartner Predicts (http://www.gartner.com/newsroom/id/2284715)By 2015, One-Third of Consumer Brands Will Integrate Payment Into Their Branded Mobile Apps. That's a lot of companies looking to leverage apps as additional revenue streams, and oh by the way 2015 is now. If we are gonna make a big splash I think it's important we understand all these different types of "apps" and the when/why/how to leverage the different types and formats. Firstly, there is the traditional applications. We all know them as executables or .EXE files or even .MSI files. They are packaged, deployed and installed in traditional methods such as manual install or an application management tool like Configuration Manager 2012.
Then we have something the technology world calls apps. By using the shortened version of the word applications technology people are referring to applications which are packaged differently than traditional applications, and targeted as modern OSs and mobile devices. Typically apps are deployed via a store, think Windows App store, iTunes Store or Google Play Store. Now that we have an understanding of what apps are, lets talk about a couple categories of apps.
(http://thedevicepros.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/windows-store-150x150.png)In the world of Microsoft and the emerging Windows 10 release, Microsoft posted details in their blog to share their definition and vision of universal apps (http://blogs.windows.com/buildingapps/2014/09/30/universal-windows-apps-get-better-with-windows-10). For Microsoft, universal apps are apps created via visual studio that share a common core, which can have user interface (UI) displays be device type. Further, a Microsoft universal app is a single app which can span from the full Windows OS, Phone OS and even XBOX. That, my friends, is all goodness. If we take a short trip outside Microsoft this term is regularly used in the industry to represent cross platform apps.
