Today, the mobile space is propelled by the rapid mobile application development. Catapulting the sector towards an enhanced state of capacities and challenges, this blog is about methods wherein the audience will learn how to increase the speed, user expectations and reliability of the plan for mobile application development designed for the enterprise. 



In Mobile Application Development HTML5 Will Lag Behind:
The spur of change across the commercial sectors was brought by the popularity of the web. Unfurling new technologies, today, the new drivers are online payment portals, enterprise mobility and Big Data. This change also brings forth challenges in context with the transference to enterprise mobility. With the growth of the Smartphones, there is yet to be a solution that does not fall short of skills or platform fragmentation. 
Most web browsers are functional on a mobile phone however, they are unable to tap into the inherent assets of the mobile.  A panel of mobile connoisseurs at a MIT conference conferred that developing native mobile applications for individual mobile would surpass the HTML5 applications despite the latter’s web browser improvements. One of the panelist, Mr. Sean Kelly, the Vice President of mobile games, Zynga, San Francisco, Calif, said, “There are distinct advantages to native now. From a game point of view, the problem is in the APIs that HTML5 does not support. There are APIs in HTML5 that just don’t exist”
Sean Kelly also stated that along with the video processing and global positioning system technology, there are other innumerable capabilities that the native operating systems are better at. On the other hand, HTML5 is still yet to catch up on the support of multimedia on mobile devices. Designated to be unviable by Kelly, the HTML5 needs to be built by the developers. Eli Schiefer, Microsoft mobile device architect and developer, and founder of Directr, further argued about JavaScript being too general and an absolute disaster for application development.
With the application developers, the HTML5 is a dream. The web browser became a universal client, and the need of developing multiple platforms was reduced. Today, when application needs to be ported to each Unix variety, there is the need for developers to write different operating systems especially if they want to utilize the innate capacities of the mobile device.  Schiefer thinks that approach of the HTML5 is nothing but a dream, and that both the HTML5 and JavaScript are not going to catch the native. Most companies do not care, and they want functional products. Schiefer thinks the company can find the best approach by themselves. No conclusion, like “this has to be in HTML5,” will work, as with technology there is always some associated problem.
Developing Mobile Applications:
Most of the mobile application developers face challenges in unfamiliar territories like the selection of an effectual application development strategy, to the decisions about SOA that can be resized to adjust according to all devices. However, whatever be the crisis, the focus is on speed, reliability and meeting the user requirements. 
Forming a mobile application strategy:
The mobile application needs to be compatible with a slew of devices that operate on a different scale from desktops or laptops.
The developmental process:
Though similar to the development of web applications, the mobile application development needs to function with the unique features of the devices. The compatibility factor is essential attribute as more devices like the tablet, Smartphones and feature phones are arriving in the scene. 
Implementing a mobile application development should be in content with the speed of the evolving landscape. Jeffrey Hammond, Analyst with the Forrester Research said that the developmental process is all about synchronizing the agility, cost, performance and user experience factors. The landing on the effective strategy platform is important along with the understanding of the basic difference between Native, web, hybrid and third party based apps. The key here is to be prosaic and flexible.
Integration of mobile applications with the enterprise:
Each time there was a switch from the desktop to laptops to the mobile, there was the need of the SOA service to resize and fit within the confines of the mobile domain. For seamless transition, it is important to break the same into smaller chunks of relevant information and be presented in a logical sequential format to the audience. This can be accomplished only when the developers are thorough with the fundamentals of mobile.
Fulfilling the demands of the user:
Even if the developers present a rich mobile application interface, there is the constant need to meet the requirements of the demanding audience. From faster loading time to reliability, user-friendly applications, it is important that these attributes are build into the app when developed. It is important to enhance the functionality of the app and monitor the reactions of the end-user and applications proactively especially during its transference to Enterprise Mobility.
