Your Enterprise App Won’t Please Everybody (And That’s Okay)

Your Enterprise App Won’t Please Everybody (And That’s Okay)

According to Gartner, worldwide spending on enterprise apps will reach US$149.9 billion by the end of the year as organisations eagerly build and implement apps internally. The aim of these enterprise apps is to improve the way employees work and, in turn, increase productivity. That’s good and all but there’s no point rolling out an app that employees don’t want to use it. Most organisations know this but there needs to be an acceptance that an app won’t please everybody in the business.

Robert Lacis, senior director of customer success at enterprise applications management company Apperian, said in a blog post:

Too often, developers gather requirements from key stakeholders and design enterprise mobile apps that attempt to deliver all things to all people. This approach is time consuming and often doesn’t deliver the functionality that’s truly needed.
Instead, a more successful approach commonly used by best-in-class organisations is the development of custom, workflow-focused mobile apps that look beyond the obvious features in desktop apps. They are designed, instead, around the actual flow of work that’s conducted by targeted employee teams.
