Gartner Trend: Superapps

Superapps are more than composite applications that aggregate services. A superapp combines the features of an app, a platform and an ecosystem in one application, providing a platform for third parties to develop and publish their own miniapps on.

Superapps is a term used to describe mobile applications that offer a wide range of features and services, typically beyond what is traditionally associated with a single app. Superapps aim to become a one-stop-shop for users, offering a seamless experience for multiple activities, from communication to entertainment, e-commerce, and more.

Superapps are usually associated with large tech companies in Asia, such as WeChat, Grab, and Gojek. WeChat, for example, started as a messaging app but has since expanded to include services like mobile payments, e-commerce, ride-hailing, food delivery, and more. This all-in-one approach has made WeChat an essential app for millions of users in China.

Superapps are designed to make users lives easier by eliminating the need to download and manage multiple apps for different purposes. Instead, users can access a range of services and features from within a single app, simplifying their daily routine. In addition, superapps offer opportunities for companies to reach a wider audience and engage with customers in new ways.

While superapps are still relatively new, they are expected to become increasingly popular in the future, especially as mobile technology advances and consumers demand more convenience and integration in their digital experiences.

Enterprise superapps are similar to consumer superapps, but they are designed specifically for use within a business or organization. These apps provide a range of features and services that allow employees to perform their job functions more efficiently and effectively.

Enterprise superapps can help businesses to streamline their operations, improve collaboration between teams, and enhance the overall employee experience. They may include features such as:

  • Communication and collaboration tools
  • HR and payroll management
  • Customer relationship management
  • Business analytics and reporting
  • Inventory management
  • Training and development

Enterprise superapps can be particularly useful for businesses with distributed teams or remote workers. They can help to improve communication and collaboration, and ensure that employees have access to the tools and information they need to do their jobs effectively.

Examples of Enterprise Superapps:

  • Microsoft Teams
  • Salesforce
  • Workday
  • ServiceNow
  • Zoom
  • Slack
