Will Apple continue to rule in US? When will iWatch be launched? How Google Glass’s commercial launch will impact the world of wearables? Would we finally say good bye to plastic money? What will happen to Blackberry? So on and so forth.

There is only one thing that is absolute – smartphones will rule the scene in 2014 and will be one of the major considerations for businesses while making technology investments.

The world of Wearable Apps

Google Glass did come with a bang! Though no signs of iWatch yet, let’s hope Apple will not disappoint us either. Galaxy Gear smartwatches from Samsung, Pebble smartwatch, Sony Core etc. will constitute to the global wearable tech market that is expected to reach $4.6 billion this year. A new era of wearable apps is all set to explode in 2014 shaking up the world of mobile app development.

The rise of MBaaS

Did anyone see that coming? Interestingly, yes! If you closely observe some of the recent tech acquisitions, you will know. The growth in enterprise mobility will accelerate the development and release of mobile apps exponentially.

That’s exactly when businesses will turn towards MBaaS (Mobile Backend as a Service) providers for mobile backend management solutions as they streamline the backend connections and bring in a consistency across all the mobile apps using backend services.
