In the last two decades, there has been an incremental increase in the penetration rate of mobile devices in almost every business. These devices have become a necessity as well as a pre-requisite for every business as these help complete tasks on the go. The usability of such mobile devices prompted various organisations to implement BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) technology in their functioning which further increased the usability of such smart mobile devices. Also, with organisations feeling the need to customise their BYOD policies, gave rise to more and more custom made smart mobile application development platforms which further gave an impetus to this market.
Smart mobile application development platforms are solutions and services that provide an integrated environment for servers and clients. These can be used as a middleware to deploy, build, and manage smart mobile applications. These also let enterprises deploy applications on various devices.
