Q: How does BYOD affect what IT develops in-house?
A: I believe that the demand for multi-device applications will favor the SaaS providers for non-core applications like payroll, expenses, and email. However, an enterprise doesn’t want to use a SaaS provider for those applications that give it a differentiation. … And so, enterprises need to “tool up.” They need to develop, test, and support applications that are multi-device, with application functionality that varies depending on the device—less for smartphones, more for tablets, and more keyboard-orientated for laptops. In the area of testing, I believe that we will see multi-device testing as a cloud service.
