Here at BrianMadden.com, we’ve always gone deep on desktop virtualization, mobility, and EUC. We know that we’re not covering hard-core mobile app development, and that that’s not our audience, either.
However, we we’ve written a decent amount about related topics, including:
- RMAD (rapid mobile app development) products that use desktop virtualization-like technologies, like Powwow and Capriza
- EUC vendors’ app tools, like VMware Workspace One Mobile Flows and Citrix Secure Forms
- Securing and delivering mobile apps
Most recently, I wrote about RMADs for one of TechTarget’s other sites, SearchMobileComputing. Check it out here for a general overview of RMAD concepts.
Anyway, I’m mentioning this because I have a few questions on my mind: Who in your organization uses these RMAD platforms? (Regardless of whether you’re them today, or just think you could hypothetically use them in the future.) Is it just the developers, or are EUC IT folks building apps, too?
One of the ideas I’ve heard is that RMADs are a good place for IT to turn when the developers are busy on other projects, and we’ve always thought that RMAD and app refactoring had a strong fit with EUC—it’s a natural extension of doing whatever you have to do to get the right apps to the right users, on any device. (Then next, we can get into the whole citizen developer question.)
This is an open question that I’ll be pursuing over the next few months, but I thought I’d write about it today to see if it starts a conversation.
