Future of App Development is Multi-experience: Gartner
Now, before you start thinking about Multi-experience Development. I want you to list out the brands that you feel more connected to.
Most probably you might have thought about the Biggies in the industry – Apple, Amazon, Samsung, Nintendo, Nike, and Sony. Now recollect the ways you interact with these brands. It might be through physical devices television, phones, tablets, and smart watches. These physical devices serves a lot of digital experience flavors like – video, audio, or web based.

Claiming that the modes of interaction are expanding across the digital user journey.
Now jumping back to Multi-experience Development
What is Multi-experience Development?
Multi-experience development platforms (MXDPs) help enterprises to rapidly scale their applications across a range of devices and platforms. MXDPs can help you develop a single application that can be deployed on a variety of devices. This greatly shortens down your efforts and gives brands more control over their digital experiences.
MXDPs will be the new Mobile App Development Platforms (MADPs)
Buyers in the market are looking to address the challenge of building and delivering a sizable portfolio of mobile apps for customers, partners and employees.
They now are looking for a complete user experience. It is no longer enough for them to simply interact with a mobile app or web application.
MADPs have enabled development for mobile, web, and desktop web.
Even hitting the minimum, brands are now including one more additional experience, which includes – chats, AR, and wearable. Consumers’ desire for more have caused the evolution MXDPs that supports Multiple Experience.
MXDP simply means Low Code platform integrating customized environmental experiences. The technology has gained massive traction because it comes with massive digital transformation.
Here are some more top reasons why enterprises are moving towards MXDPs –
1. Offer internal operational efficiencies
MXDPs help enterprises to support a large number of internal operations in a single space. With every process being present in one system, processes can be easily streamlined. MXDP enable organizations to create efficient, faster, and valuable digital experiences.
2. Reduce Time to Market for Mobile Apps
MXDPs can significantly improve development time by as much as 10 times. All because of the reusable code and streamlined design processes. And with faster releases, feedback cycles can also be shortened. This helps in creating and honing your digital experiences.
3. Better Control over Actual Deployment
It takes a week to conduct a single cloud-based deployment. But with the right MXDP, information can be directly sent to your cloud-based server provider, such as Amazon Web Services. Plus, MXDPs are also going to provide full-distributed environment on your behalf. Providing more efficiency by streamlining deployment process.
4. Eliminate potential security Risk
With your application feeding on a single platform like MXDPs, you can get a 360 view of your software landscape. This can eliminate all the potential security risks like shadow IT that many organizations struggle with.
Diving Deeper into MXDP
According to Gartner’s study, cloud-hosted artificial intelligence (AI) services are the most widely used technology to support multi-experience application development (61 percent of respondents), followed by native iOS and Android development (48 percent) and mobile back-end services (45 percent).
Contrary to the perception that Mobile apps are declining, they are going to have the most impact on businesses by the year 2020. And following the mobile application comes Augment Reality and Virtual Reality applications. Although the users indicate a high level of development in chatbots and voice apps, very few though that they are going to have a huge impact on the businesses by 2020.
