Mobile Continues to Grow in Importance
According to The Whir almost half of IP traffic by the year 2017 will come from mobile devices. In 2012, according to the same reporting, a full 26% of Internet traffic came from devices other than PCs. This, of course, means that web application development will have to keep pace with this and come up with new and innovative ways to allow people to get the most out of their mobile devices with compatible mobile applications.
A distinct advantage of web applications is that, because they run on a browser, they’re compatible with multiple operating systems. As Himanshu Sareen, writing for the Huffington Post points out, the line between operating systems and browsers is becoming increasingly fuzzy. In fact, both Mozilla and Google have released operating systems that are based on their browsers. Look for web application development to take advantage of this and, of course, to accommodate it.
Joe Stangarone points out user expectations have changed, partially due to the fact that software companies have gotten consumers used to very clean and understandable interfaces. Look for this trend to continue in web application development. Over the course of the year, anticipate that the user interfaces on applications will become cleaner than ever before and far more intuitive than they were in the past.
Cloud Takes Over
ZD Net notes a trend in enterprise software that is likely to boost the market for applications based on the web. Companies are increasingly moving toward cloud-based solutions, forgoing expanding their own internal IT and utilizing these more cost effective resources. Along with the other trends, expect more people to start adopting web-based applications this year overall.
