Enterprise Mobile Apps are the Requirement. Do you know the Solution?

Enterprise mobile applications are currently one of the things keeping CIOs up at night. They know that the right apps can engage customers and make employees more productive by enabling everyone to work and interact the way they prefer. However, they are only too aware of the risk of wasting time and effort by producing apps that never get used because they don’t “feel” right to users. Or even worse, failing to deliver a mobile app that the business expects.

This paper aims to help readers understand the issues surrounding enterprise mobile applications and suggest solutions so that they can reap the benefits and avoid the pitfalls. We outline our viewpoint on the challenges and make recommendations to help organizations that are contemplating, or already involved with, mobile development.

Speed, Scale, Security: Orchestrating a Great Download Experience

Delivering software is becoming harder every day. Not only do you have to compete in a universe of 15 billion connected devices, but also with a growing number of users downloading everything from new applications to virus updates.

The result is a growing congestion that can undermine your ability to get your application, software patch, or device update to your end users as quickly as possible. And every minute that your users spend trying to download your software is a minute they can’t spend using it.

What it ultimately comes down to is latency.

Limelight Orchestrate for Media & Broadcast

Every broadcaster and media content owner struggles with how to simplify and reduce costs of media publishing workflow. Instantaneously delivering high quality video worldwide to every screen has led to needlessly complex systems. Too often, multiple third party tools are required to encode, publish, and deliver high performing content, as well as integrate ads, gather analytics, and ensure content security—all of which can impact how quickly you can deliver high quality content to your viewers, who expect a seamless experience on every screen.

Software Download: The Challenge for Game Developers

Digital distribution is the fastest growing method to sell games, upgrade and fix game software, and push out new enhancements to existing games. For example, Steam, one of the largest game distribution sites in the world, distributes over 3000 games to more than 100 million active users while supporting 5-8 million players simultaneously. The percentage of video gamers choosing digital distribution over DVDs grew from 40% in 2012 to over 50% in 2013, according to the Entertainment Software Association, and this number will keep climbing.

Building a Better Game Experience

As the video game market has grown, it has become increasingly competitive. Traditional console and PC games are now competing against smartphone and tablet titles as the mobile segment explodes in popularity. But gamers have limited time playing, on average, only 1-2 hours per day. In order to capture mindshare, and a share of the $100 billion gaming wallet, game developers and studios must expand their titles to become more of an experience. Although they must provide a top quality storyline with easy-to-use controls, they must also extend that game experience into new channels and new platforms if they hope to remain top-of-mind with gamers.
