BPM Enterprise Transformation Takes Form at Mobile Applications Symposium

The mobile revolution is changing the way we do work. For business, each of our mobile devices serves as a computer in our pockets that must be fast and efficient to meet mission critical goals and complete tasks. The mobile revolution has had such an impact on the way we work that many people would rather work on their smartphones despite having the desktop staring them in the face.

As smartphone and tablets play a larger role in everyday business processes, the challenge is at an all-time high for the modernization, productivity, and innovation of mobile application development. As Gartner research shows, some 60 percent of enterprises plan to build private enterprise app stores by 2014, up from 10 percent in 2012. On-premise applications will need to be optimized for mobile access and provide enablement on popular interfaces, and developers will need to weigh the pros and cons of native applications versus HTML5 development.

Appian is proud to sponsor Computerworld’s The Power of Mobile Apps Symposium, taking place tomorrow in San Francisco, CA. This event will address enterprise-wide topics and more as attendees learn the latest, proven best practices around mobile application development, distribution, governance, and integration. Networking opportunities will be sure to yield informative dialogue sessions between stakeholders and industry experts regarding the state of mobile development and what innovations the future holds.

The symposium will address the following topics:

• Mobile app development

• Enterprise app stores, app libraries

• App policies and governance

• Integration

• MAM/MDM
