As government moves to a more mobile workforce, demand for consistent and standards-driven application development and deployment has become even more critical – especially in an environment of shrinking budgets. It is important to develop cost-effective applications that are easily extensible for use on mobile devices, with the ability to be built once and tweaked for use across the enterprise. Agencies and the public both need to create and consume information without cumbersome access requirements and limitations regardless of platform – from tablets and smartphones to laptops and desktops. What is the business case for the evolution of data-driven solutions versus continued investment in legacy databases? What are the mobility requirements for developing and modernizing applications?

Join AFCEA Bethesda on December 12 at the Bethesda North Marriott and Conference Center for “Standards-Driven Application Development for Workforce Mobility,” an executive breakfast panel discussion on the challenges, best practices and procurement opportunities in developing a standards-and data-driven approach to application development, creating government App Stores and building mobile device specific solutions.
Panelists will discuss:
  • What infrastructure changes need to occur in the enterprise to support standards-based application development for the mobile workforce
  • How to identify and develop a business case for migrating existing applications for mobile device access as a mission enabler and how success is measured
  • How to develop standards for application development across the enterprise to reduce customization and increase reuse
  • Recent examples of data-driven solutions that have eliminated the need for ongoing investment in legacy applications and how these solutions have been mobilized
  • Can agencies create a one-stop shop for mobile app testing and certification
  • Benefits and requirements for an enterprise-wide app store

According to Deltek research, the shifts in federal IT spending priorities may seem like a chaotic game of musical chairs, but not to Deltek’s expert analysts. They have made sense of the confusing decisions and market segment anomalies that have evolved into full-blown trends.
