More firms are making new apps because today's technology is making that easier, added Dennis Sheldon, AIA, CTO of Gehry Technologies of Los Angeles. Web Services protocols are making it easier for this to happen.
Sheldon said he disagreed with the notion that more firms are building their own apps "because tech isn't doing what you want it to do." Instead, he countered, "the emerging paradigm in technology is that you do what you want with it. I think people are moving (shall we say) away from this idea that a product comes in a box and you install it, and if you don't like that one than you get a different one."
