When should enterprise develop its own mobile apps?
Any guidelines on when an enterprise should invest in custom mobile app development, as opposed to seeking products from the open market? Is the availability of commercial mobile apps for business still spotty?

Not forgetting the importance of testing…
Great article! One other key element to consider should be testing whether an application can handle the pressure of peak loads in traffic.

As we saw from Twitter this week, even high profile applications can crash under an unexpected load. Therefore, making load testing a key part of your testing cycle can mitigate the potential reputational damage from a crash.

As you say, BYOD is common in the workplace, significantly increasing the number of platforms your applications must support, so your tools should speed up testing across the ever-growing number of desktop and mobile browsers to ensure you meet your users' demand for quality and performance. If they don't, then Borland can help. Our tools can help ensure your company delivers successful software across the Software Delivery Supply Chain. Find out more here.
