The top 6 Sapho blog posts of 2016

Happy New Year! We hope you enjoyed your celebrations and have returned to work refreshed and ready to take on new challenges. 

The beginning of the year is a wonderful opportunity to reflect on the previous year and leverage what you have learned to improve. 2016 was a big year at Sapho and as we looked back at our accomplishments, we wanted to share the blog posts our readers enjoyed the most. 

1. Getting mobile right with a micro app development and integration platform

The business world has made the leap to mobile, but that doesn’t mean the available apps and tools deliver a truly mobile experience. There is a difference between companies who “have gone mobile” versus those who prioritize getting mobile right. 

2. Building the future of work

Co-founder and CEO Fouad ElNaggar shares where the idea for Sapho came from and why we believe that inverting workflows and changing the way employees interact with enterprise software will create an entirely new way to work.  

3. High expectations of software: Written by a millennial

Read a first-hand account of what it’s like to join the workforce as a millennial and learn about the struggles that traditional enterprise software presents to this workforce. A key takeaway: there is no excuse for bad software, regardless of your age.  

4. Employees to IT: We can’t stand our enterprise systems

What did Forrester Research learn when they spoke to 109 business and IT leaders with application purchasing or application modernization purchase authority at companies with more than 1,000 employees? Enterprise software is falling short when it comes to employee expectation of easy-to-use, personalized, and mobile-friendly applications.  

5. Small screens, big decisions: How mobile is forcing businesses to rethink software

Feature bloat is no longer just a traditional desktop software problem as business software moves to mobile. Creating mobile-friendly workflows presents a beautiful challenge for businesses to prioritize and determine what is most important and actionable. 

6. Push comes to shove: Why push computing is the new way we interact with information

As software grows more intelligent and gets to know us, it’s able to anticipate a need before we even know we want it. Explore the paradigm shift from “pull” to “push” computing.
