Respondents call for a Mobile App Strategy that Offers Choice – HTML5, Native and Hybrid
WALTHAM, MA, November 20, 2013 – Telerik®, an end-to-end provider of application development tools and solutions for building cross-platform and mobile applications, today announced the results of its latest Mobile Application Development Survey. Titled, “The HTML5 vs. Native Debate is Over. The Winner is…,” the survey was conducted in October 2013 and polled 3500 respondents from around the world, ranging from developers to CIOs and CTOs. The results demonstrate an opportunity for vendors offering tools that support both hybrid and native approaches for mobile app development. Download the full report here.
Key findings include:
While native approaches were perceived to be the best choice for mobile application development in the enterprise a few years ago, today, 57% of those surveyed believe that HTML5 is either enterprise-ready or will be within 12 months. This demonstrates that the lines are blurring between developer preference for mobile app development approaches, not simply in terms of the end-user experience, but also the app development experience.
“Developers are taking the time to really understand the advantages and best practices for hybrid and native development and are quickly realizing that there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ solution for their mobile development process,” said Todd Anglin, Telerik’s EVP of Cross-Platform Products and Solutions. . “Many developers are finding that the choice between native and hybrid approaches is dependent on business needs, app requirements, developer skill, development timeline and other factors. When considered in context, we’re seeing plenty of cases where hybrid is the right choice for a given app, and others where native still makes the most sense. What developers need, then, are tools that can help them be effective, regardless of the chosen approach.”
In addition, the survey posed questions around standards adoption, number and types of apps that will be developed in 2014, cross-platform adoption and the cost and time savings benefits of non-native approaches.
