Being mobile isn't just about having a mobile friendly website or mobile advertising. Mobile is not a stagnant term. It is always evolving and growing. Developing your own app is just step one of what it takes to be a modern mobilized business. There is no easy answer to how much it will cost or how many resources will be needed to make it work in your environment. It's important to consider it can take your team up to four months (on average) to build the infrastructure behind your app alone to meet the needs and requirements of the large amount of devices and operating systems. From there, you have to consider the ongoing maintenance and updates required to keep your app up to date and secure. This great infographic below from Kinvey is based on the input from 100 mobile designers on how long it takes to build an app in today's business landscape. The bigger the business, the more time and resources will be required to build the back end infrastructure to connect all of the dots accordingly.
18 weeks is simply the average. It's crazy to think Apollo 11 could travel to the moon 40 times in the time it takes the average business to build the first version of their app. Think of all the things that could go wrong. Crashing, freezing, irregular behavior, security, poor maintenance, not enough resources, poor user experience, lack of insight and the list goes on and on. That's why there are thousands of new businesses emerging today to specialize in helping you take your business mobile. The research entity of going mobile is just a piece of the pie. Our mission is to help you gain insights to deliver more value, whether it's in your existing app or one we build for you as a starting ground to learn how to take your business mobile.
