StarGarden is about to do some mobile application prototypes which would give our clients the ability to do online time entry and approval as well as look up and update information that is currently available on Employee and Manager Self Service. Everyone at StarGarden is excited about this given all the press lately about mobile applications and their impact on the future of software development.
Gartner released their 'Top 10 Tech Trends for 2012' and mobile applications ranked #2. Here is what Gartner had to say:
"Mobile-centric applications and interfaces: Here touch, gesture and voice search is going to change the way mobile apps work in the future, Cearley says. By 2014, there will be more than 70 billion mobile application downloads from app stores every year. By 2014, at least half of the tools optimized for app store application development in 2010 will have been acquired or will have ceased to exist"
