Mobile Applications and the demand for mobile application developers are becoming such a booming need that many companies in the United States are now willing to invest billions of dollars into Mobile Application Development Research and training labs where they can start training and nurturing mobile application developers in-house rather than having to outsource the mobile app development to other companies. Microsoft and Nokia has already announced that they will invest billions of dollars into a program designed to teach and educate rising mobile application developers how to develop mobile apps for the Windows and Nokia Platforms but now other companies are also jumping aboard the mobile application bandwagon.
With so much demand and need for mobile applications it is only wise for companies to start investing for their own in-house mobile application development team rather than having to rely on another companies mobile app developers to develop mobile applications. Even though there are many mobile application development firms who can develop quality mobile applications, many high level employees believe that it is always better to do things in-house rather than outsourcing specific projects. With so much competition and potential in the mobile application development industry, there are often times when a company is considering developing a ground-breaking mobile application which can change the way individuals interact or conduct specific tasks and they will be much more assured knowing that the mobile application and intellectual property is staying within the company and key information is not being released to individuals who are not part of the company. It is also believed that developing mobile applications in-house will be much cheaper for the company than outsourcing the mobile application development. Yes, it is true that the up-front investment cost to train and educate individuals on mobile application development maybe high initially but in the long run, many mobile application developers and mobile application “experts” believe it will be worth the investment.
One mobile application developer recently stated the following with regards to companies now wanting to train and educate their mobile application development team in-house: “I don’t blame these companies for wanting to have their own in-house team. This industry is booming and the demand for it so much that I have a feeling there will be a time later this year or early next year when it will be difficult to even find a mobile application development team that will have the resources to take on projects because they will already be so busy with other projects they are working on. The best and most safe bet for companies to depend and rely solely on their own employees for mobile application development rather than outsourcing the mobile app development to other companies. Companies who have their own development center will also probably pay less per mobile application compared to if they continuously went to other firms to get specific mobile application projects developed”
The Mobile Application industry is certainly heading in the right direction and the fact that large corporations and companies now want to invest in their own mobile application development team says a lot about the mobile app industry and the demand for it. It is impossible to predict the future but all indications are showing that the mobile application industry and mobile application developers are on the rise and the resources/skill-set which they offer is hard to find and is quickly getting taken by other firms. If a company or corporation can create a solid mobile application development center where their mobile app developers are able to develop quality mobile applications, then they are in store for a bright future for not only the short term but also the long term.
