Kevin Benedict on…: What Has Happened to Enterprise Mobility – An Update

    My colleague and mobile expert Peter Rogers, shares his insights into the fast changing world of enterprise mobility, and his fondness for acronyms with us today.  Please add your thoughts and comments!  Enjoy!*****Peter RogersCognizant Mobile ExpertFour years ago, if you asked me for recommendations on the best solution for a mobile application on multiple platforms, I would have doubtless told you to use a MEAP (Mobile Enterprise Application Platform) or a MCAP (Mobile Consumer Application Platform) depending on the business case. Three years ago, it would have been a MADP (Mobile Application Development Platform)  solution because the two terms merged. Two years ago, I probably would have told you that the merging of the terms was a bad idea and to use an MCAP solution with an BaaS (Backend as a Service). Last year, I would have told you to use an MCAP solution, pure native or an HTML5 based solution combined with a Mobile App Platform as a Service / Mobile Platform as a Service that combined API Gateway functionality. You can see that things are starting to get a bit nebulous here in the terminology stakes and the definitions, boundaries and business cases are looking a bit wobbly. So the burning question is what would I tell you this year?
