Managing the Changing IT Landscape: Mobile Applications for Business
There’s been a lot of talk lately about app stores in the enterprise. Back in March, I blogged about how app stores are an opportunity for IT to gain tighter control over things like software installations, role-based app delivery, or licensing.
Well, things are moving quickly. Not only are enterprise app stores becoming increasingly common, but IT organizations are stepping up efforts on mobile apps—from development to deployment—and moving the work in-house. A recent CIO Insight article captured the latest from a survey done by Antenna Software. The bottom line is that time to market is critical, and organizations are bringing the work in-house as “part of a broader need for cost, speed, security, and reusability.”
Insight from Intel IT
A couple weeks ago, I had the opportunity to moderate an Intel® IT Center webinar on mobile app development (52:37).
For more insights on Intel IT’s strategy, check out the Building a Mobile Application Development Framework whitepaper, or check out the Intel Developer Zone that Meghana mentioned.
I believe HTML5 provides a critical opportunity for IT organizations to deliver applications across a range of platforms. Where do you stand on mobile application development in your organization?
