Enterprises and businesses around the globe, from healthcare and agriculture to automotive industries, strive to digitally transform to stay innovative and competitive in the market.

In order to digitally transform, companies must enable the workforce to be more productive. To accomplish this, workers need access to any business application on any device from anywhere.

With increasing levels of digitalization, it is no longer sufficient for companies to just buy a suite of business applications. Instead, more organizations develop enterprise applications, including workflow-specific mobile applications for sales, customer service, finance, marketing, research and development and other business processes. This way, these teams can work more efficiently, and the business can engage with customers, partners and internal teams on a deeper level.

3 Key Challenges to Developing Enterprise Apps

At VMware, we talk a lot to enterprise customers to understand their business goals and requirements, as well as the problems they are trying to solve on their journey of digital transformation. We’ve identified key challenges:

  1. Securing data on mobile apps and devices, which can be difficult and complex
  2. Gaining business insights for business and mission-critical apps
  3. Developing apps more cost-effectively

Enter the VMware Workspace ONE SDK

To address these challenges and help enterprises bring about change and accelerate their digital transformation, we transformed our VMware Workspace ONE SDK. Our software development kit (SDK) for the digital workspace helps organizations:

  • Solve digital work challenges,
  • Integrate key capabilities,
  • Build enterprise-ready applications in a matter of minutes,
  • Roll out apps to market faster and
  • Reduce complexity, time to market and the overall cost of enterprise app development.

We believe mission-critical and workflow-specific mobile applications play a vital role in how organizations digitally transform. Embracing this shift, we develop our Workspace ONE SDK with a few key principles in mind:

  • Deployment flexibility for corporate-owned and bring-your-own-device (BYOD) use cases,
  • Minimum effort to integrate with existing and expanding IT infrastructure,
  • Flexible enough to customize,
  • Non-intrusive, consumer-simple user experiences and
  • Most importantly, ease for app developers to implement key features in minutes.

The Workspace ONE SDK extends our Workspace ONE platform capabilities to mobile apps. This helps enterprises integrate FIPS-compliant security, compliance, identity and intelligence capabilities into mission-critical business applications and provide data security on every level—network, device, app, data and identity.

The Workspace ONE SDK supports multiple app development platforms, including native iOS and Android, Cordova, Xamarin and SAP Fiori, so developers can build business applications on the app platforms best suited for their needs.
