To show you just how serious this actually is, let’s delve into 3 myths and misconceptions. This will illuminate the point and make things clearer for everyone reading this to see.

Creating a mobile app is expensive and difficult

The volume of money and efforts that you are going to spend in order to create your app depends on many different factors:

– The number of features.
– Platforms compatibility (iOS, Android, Windows Phone or all at once).
– Complexity of the interface design and animations.
– Back End (also known as a server part).
– Type of employment (hiring an indoor team, outstaffing developers or outsourcing your mobile app development).

Wireframes NOT Required!
It is a popular misconception that wireframes are not required in app development, so spending the time to create them results in wasted time. Nothing, but just a false conception that wireframes are critical as they deliver an insight that acknowledges how a developed app will work and look like. Changes can be done in wireframes to know how effective they will be when done in a developed application.

Mobile Apps are Unable to Access Data Stored in Legacy Systems
Many enterprise organizations have heavily invested in enterprise resource planning software (ERP software) and hesitate to develop mobile apps because they don’t seamlessly plug into present technologies. Although enterprise apps may have the ability to plug into backend systems and API systems like Sharepoint, Oracle, MySQL, and SAP, many ERP’s are not mobile accessible and this can slow down app development, even making some apps obsolete. However, many of these challenges can be solved by finding a mobile backend (MBaaS) as a service solution with an API infrastructure that easily allows mobile devices to access legacy systems.
