As mobile user habits continue to evolve, enterprises are expanding efforts to reach audiences on a variety of platforms. According to Gartner, "55 percent of all organizations will have deployed (used in production) at least one additional app experience in addition to a mobile app by 2020"2. Additionally, the analyst firm predicts that "by 2021 at least one-third of enterprises will have deployed a multi-experience development platform to support mobile, web, conversational and augmented reality development"3. Using Oracle Mobile Cloud, businesses are able to create cohesive experiences across all platforms to engage key stakeholders on the most popular devices and platforms.

"Smartphone adoption continues to grow and mobile apps, while key to engaging customers, are beginning to give way to new technologies like conversational interfaces," said Suhas Uliyar, vice president, product management, Oracle. "The addition of services like Oracle's intelligent bots, which can readily build chatbots for customers, will be instrumental for digital transformation as businesses engage with audiences on new and emerging platforms."

According to Gartner, "Leaders have a strong combination of Ability to Execute and Completeness of Vision. In the MADP sector, this means that Leaders are not only good at cross-platform development, deployment and management across the full life cycle, but also demonstrate strong vision for multiexperience development support. A Leader must also have open architectures and support open standards, while showing a solid understanding of IT requirements, and scalable sales channels and partnerships. Leaders must provide platforms that are easy to purchase, program, deploy and upgrade, and which can connect to a range of systems of record and third-party cloud services."
