IBM Distinguished Engineer Leigh Williamson walks "Turbo" Todd Watson through the myriad issues facing mobile application developers.youtube.com
Alex Shirlaw's insight:
This video addresses some of the key issusesn that are currently being faced by mobile software developers. In particular, Williamson discusses possible improvements relating to Development Operations or 'dev ops' as Williamson refers to it. He discusses that the time restrictions of many developers comes down to 'wasted effort' on writing source code and mentions that it is only a matter of time before it becomes automated. So what else could the future hold?
The mobile and “apps” market has been growing rapidly and steadily for the past few years. With the introduction of the iPad in 2010, the tablet market is gaining attention as product value soars in many industries. Health and pharmaceuticals is one of those industries openly accepting the mobile and tablet takeover as these devices and their “apps” bring added benefit and new innovative solutions. In a follow up to last week’s post,Arithmos discusses the market and how devices are being integrated.
The pharmaceutical industry has been embracing these markets for several reasons. One of the biggest reasons is patient compliance. Patients want the “WOW Factor ” – the digital and personalized experience.
Devices such as tablets and smartphones can cut clinical trial costs as well. Setting up desktops or laptops, or even printing paper, can be more expensive than simply downloading information on a device. Using these devices also allows patients to just send information via click or an IM/SMS. With the installation of ”apps”, medical information can be downloaded instantly by doctors or Investigators.
This is another perfect example of how mobile apps are revolutionising the way in which we use mobile technology to our advantage. This article mentions the fact that utilising this kind of technology is more cost efficient because it can run the clinical trials on the device instead of manually conducting them on paper. This is ironic because it creates a twist on the classic saying that 'more is less' when in fact this clearly demonstartes that this kind of technology delivers more results with less effort and cost needed.
This article talks about mobile phone technology that can "learn from use", and "change over time". Capuozzo is clearly trying to communicate that mobile technology is going to continuously become smarter and more intelligent until it is comparable with that of the human brain. The technological evolution is inevitable, not only in mobile computing but in any kind of technology - the only constraint, is time.
This is a really great video because it communicates a very important mesage that should be heeded by any small business that is looking to increase its market sector dominance, and success. It doesn't really matter how much money you spend on adverising, if you are not communicating effectively then you are wasting money. The reason why mobile apps are so much better for gaining potenial customers is because the software is easy to use. If something is easy to use then you are almost guaranteed to attract more attention, especially from popular search engines such as google. Business tools like these are just too relevant to be ignored.
This article dicusses some very important topics in relation to mobile applications - the most significant being education, of course. When it comes to learning, the information is always out there, the only problem is being able to access it at a convenient time and place. Mobile applications that are being developed for educational purposes are clearing a path for the future of personalised learning. This concept is relevant to any student no matter what they are training or studying because every individual leans in a unique way.
