MicroApps – An Emerging Development Trend

The apps world has seen a fast growth in the enterprise apps category with SMEs emerging every now and then. MicroApps help users restructure, organize and handle a important business processes. They offer a highly focused, task-based functionality that allows users to access the app, interact and close the app in the best possible way.

The new wave of MicroApps

The new wave of MicroApps can be smart as well as context-aware. The platforms that support MicroApps may range from Slack and Facebook Messenger bots to Google’s interactive answer boxes and conventional mobile OS. While the MicroApps are typically single purpose, they make use of a combination of direct user interfaces and context.

The Edge

App developers need to deliver enterprise apps to mobile users and they also have to deliver a mobile app that suits the enterprise’s functionality requests in a limited time and deliver the mobile apps with the highest quality user experience. Micro services can be integrated into various systems with ease too, MicroApps can present them as simply consumed user interfaces, and the system flows enable users to complete tasks fast and without any problem.

Enterprise companies are the most notable adopters of MicroApps

Enterprise companies are the most notable adopters of MicroApps, since components to integrate and interweave in one installable app to meet workstream-level requirements for workers is seen as the most advantageous solution.

MicroApps – offering the right balance

MicroApps offer the right balance: enterprises can build tons of niche solutions and integrate them together to build full-scale solutions for their users as they would think of doing with micro services. They are generally based on HTML and load dynamically and they typically bypass app stores and loading directly into current communication tools, such as the aforementioned Slack and Facebook Messenger.

But, HTML is not the sole app development tool that you should consider this year. Telerik and Xamarin are both used as frameworks focused on allowing you to create cross-platform mobile apps  with native UI and shared, common code across all platforms providing a faster and lower cost path for quick deployment.

The way to go

Enterprises have to find new, innovative methods to test and learn rapidly what will make an impact for their business and MicroApps offer a way forward for them to get success out of the mobile strategy. Considering MicroApps have the power to one thing extremely well, enterprises should consider them as the strategy to look forward to in the future.
