“There’s been a lot of talk about the impact of the pandemic on mobile adoption, and that’s also what we saw. Over the last two years, we went from mostly catering to very mobile-savvy teams to seeing massive ‘traditional’ enterprises fully commit to building in-house mobile teams that are increasingly sophisticated,” Birmacher, CEO and co-founder, said in an emailed statement.
“From those same customers, we hear that this is a direct result of the huge increase in importance of mobile for their business success. There’s no more putting off investment, or half-assing an effort. They are seeing that, regardless of how big or established they are, doing mobile right is a matter of surviving and thriving as a business.”
