Here's Who Made Gartner's 2018 Magic Quadrant For Mobile App Development Platforms


Resco: Niche

What it offers: Resco's platform focuses on high-productivity app development "for any mobile device," Gartner said, including phones, tablets, PCs, wearables and smart glasses. The platform provides low-code capabilities using JavaScript and leverages Xamarin for creating native apps. Resco is new to Gartner's Magic Quadrant this year.

Strengths: Resco enjoys a broad base of customers, with particular popularity among organizations focused on the Microsoft ecosystem. The platform offers "prebuilt connectors" for Dynamics 365, leverages Xamarin for the client runtime and supports both Windows 10 and Windows 7.

Cautions: Resco "does not offer API mediation capabilities" and doesn't support NoSQL or storage of unstructured data, Gartner said. Lack of support for virtual assistants and chatbots is another major issue, according to Gartner.
