Mobile Cloud App Development will Reach $3.6B in 2019

​The nascent enterprise mobility space will see tremendous growth in new cloud-based solutions as organizations seek to mobilize quickly and easily, according to findings from the latest market study by ABI Research.

No longer focused on mobile device management solutions, companies are seeking mobile application platforms deployed on-premise or in the cloud for the development and management of enterprise applications.

The shift towards applications is based on necessity and scalability as enterprises are forced to deal with a growing number of devices and device platforms accessing enterprise content and systems. This is a perfect environment for open-source software projects to flourish.

"Mobile applications allow for greater flexibility when mobilizing content and employees. However, the cost in terms of time and resources is fairly expensive to generate a single app for multiple platforms like iOS, Android and Windows Phone," said Jason McNicol, senior analyst at ABI Research.

Fortunately new cloud based development solutions have evolved and are now gaining traction to reduce the app development time -- while also permitting cross-platform deployment.

There exist two cloud based solutions -- front-facing and backend integration.

Front-facing solutions focus specifically on the end user experience (i.e., app appearance, user interaction, etc.). Backend solutions, also known as Mobile Backend-as-a-Service (MBaaS), focus specifically on connecting the app to enterprise systems.

Both solutions can be installed and used on-premise or as a cloud service. ABI Research predicts cloud deployments will grow faster than on-premise solutions with a CAGR of 42.5 percent between 2014 and 2019.

Moreover, the upside opportunity is significant. ABI forecasts that cloud application development and management platforms will drive $3.6 billion in mobile enterprise app revenues by 2019.

McNicol adds, "We routinely hear about the advantages and increases in worker productivity from mobilizing a workforce." This emerging sector will likely be a key focal point of market development, going forward.

Recent gains are driven by new cloud based tools as enterprises gain more understanding of the mobile cloud thus reducing security fears. North America is driving cloud adoption solutions, but ABI believes that there exists tremendous growth opportunity in other regions seeking to exploit the same productivity gains.

Precision Medicine Spend to Reach $132.3 Billion

Precision Medicine uses molecular info to extract the optimum medical method from diagnostic protocols, by merging the impact of environmental and genetic factors. Data access is essential, with genetic metabolic and clinical data used to build a fuller picture of a patient's biology. Moreover, the primary aim of precision medicine is to design and optimize a pathway for diagnosis, therapeutic intervention, and prognosis, using large biological datasets. Personalized, evidence-based medicine uses stored health data, which includes patient diagnosis, laboratory work, insurance claims, and demographic information. The results enable healthcare providers to predict and prevent some illnesses. Precision Medicine Market Development According to the latest worldwide market study by Juniper Research, the total investment in precision medicine will reach $132.3 billion globally by 2027 -- that's increasing from only $35.7 billion in 2022.
