Coping with Mobility - part 1: mobile architecture and the enterprise
Conclusion: Organisations looking to develop and deploy mobile applications must realise that the mobile device market will undergo significant change over the next five years. This creates serious challenges for developers within enterprises, who must either create applications for specific devices and different form factors, or attempt to develop cross-platform applications that will still meet end-user expectations. IBRS has identified four high-level architectures for developing mobile applications, each of which has specific strengths and weaknesses. This research provides an overview of these architectures.
