Mobile app development has been steadily growing, in revenues and jobs created. A 2013 analyst report estimates there are 529,000 direct app economy jobs within the EU 28 members, 60% of which are mobile app developers.[1] As part of the development process, mobile user interface (UI) design is also essential in the creation of mobile apps. UI design’s goal is mainly to create understandable, user-friendly interface. The UI of mobile apps should:

  • consider users’ limited attention
  • minimize keystrokes
  • be task-oriented with a minimum set of functions

Mobile UIs, or front-ends, rely on mobile back-ends to support access to enterprise systems. The mobile back-end facilitates data routing, security, authentication, authorization, working off-line, and service orchestration. This functionality is supported by a mix of middleware components including mobile app server, mobile backend as a service (MBaaS), and service-oriented architecture (SOA) infrastructure.
