So, You’re Ready to Build your Mobile App… What Next?

Most businesses are looking to increase their brand awareness, one way to do this is to enlarge your digital footprint.  Expanding your digital ecosystem has many forms, one is migrating your products and services to the cloud and the other is to have a mobile application, both of these will increased user outreach and satisfaction. 

If you’re interested in pursuing enterprise mobile development and deploying your company’s enterprise applications in a mobile environment, the process can be challenging. It’s not easy to develop a mobile app – and the expense of doing so can be quite high.

For that reason, you’ll need to make sure you choose the right programming language – and development framework – for your enterprise mobile development project. In this article, we’ll discuss a few of our top picks for the best programming language for enterprise mobile development and discuss a few platforms and frameworks that use each language. Let’s get started now.

 

1. HTML5 – Ionic

 

HTML5 is often the best choice for enterprise mobile development. In fact, there is a good chance that you may not need to develop an app at all – it can be more cost-effective to create a web-browser based piece of software which supports both desktop computers and mobile devices.

 

Using a web-based design with HTML5 has a number of benefits. An HTML website is natively cross-platform, and can work on both iOS and Android, as well as Mac, Windows and Linux browsers – which can help eliminate a lot of redundant work and costs.

 

However, if you do want to create an app rather than use a mobile-friendly website, the Ionic framework is a great choice if you’re using a design that incorporates HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. Using Ionic, you can easily build and deploy iOS and Android apps that are developed using HTML5.

 

2. JavaScript – NativeScript

 

JavaScript, and especially Angular and Vue.js are ideal tools for building cross-platform enterprise mobile applications. NativeScript is one of the most popular mobile development platforms for JavaScript and TypeScript, as well as specialized frameworks like Angular and Vue.js.

 

Using NativeScript, coding mobile enterprise applications is simplified. It utilizes APIs similar to those used by Xcode for iOS and Android Studio for Android phones, making it easy to develop cross-platform applications.

 

3. C# – Xamarin

 

If you have an enterprise application that’s coded in C#, and you would like to use the same programming language for your mobile app, the Xamarin platform from Microsoft is ideal for you. This platform can be used to code Android, iOS, Windows, and even macOS apps simultaneously. This makes it especially useful if you are building a brand-new custom enterprise app from the ground-up, and would like native cross-platform support and functionality.

 

4. Dart – Flutter

 

Dart is a proprietary programming language developed by Google, intended specifically for the mobile application development space. Flutter is a platform and framework that allows you to use Dart to build native Android and iOS applications.

 

You can use a 2D rendering engine, known as “Skia” to create visual components and modify the design quickly and easily. This platform also offers incredible “hot-reload” functionality which allows for seamless testing without restarting the application. It provides fully-native performance on both iOS and Android, and allows for simplified UI iteration and design, making it a great option for rapid prototyping and fast app deployments.

 

Developing an Enterprise Mobile App? Consider One of These Languages And Platforms!

 

Every enterprise development project is different – but the above-recommended languages and platforms will be useful for the majority of developers. So take some time to think about your project, your needs, and the tools that are the best for you – and you’re sure to make the right choice.
