There are basically two kinds of mobile apps for Android development: Generic and Custom apps. A Generic app could also be customized. Google is a standard operating system for Android.

Customizing an EAS for smartphones makes it easier for organizations to access and download various tools and information.

EAS Development and Support:

Over-the-air (OTA) support for Android users is connected to installing applications. Updates are now available for Android users. EAS should be able to offer OTA support for users that choose to update.

Making sure the EAS can support operating systems such as Google for Android is important. Cross platform and browser support application should also be available for download at the Google Play Store.

MDM, also known as mobile device management should also be supported. This is where an employee may require multiple accounts for login to their devices. MDM can properly track these accounts for devices, users and apps.

The EAS development and support features should also include proper security, admin portal, alerts and process. The most successful organizations' CIOs will work closely with other C-level execs and department heads to map-out the ways in which technology can and will support the company's growth and business plans. Using that info, the CIO and his/her team can then develop their IT plan, including the timelines necessary to ensure their business doesn't lag behind competitors.
