The hows and whys of deploying mobile applications

Enterprise mobility can do great things for employee productivity, but it raises some serious concerns for IT professionals -- particularly when it comes to developing and deploying mobile applications.

Choosing to go mobile is the easy part. Making it happen, by giving employees the tools they need to succeed, is hard. Cost, security and end-user satisfaction are all important considerations. If an organization ignores any of those factors, it can sink a planned mobile application deployment.

In this video interview, mobility expert Craig Mathias explains the basics of deploying mobile applications. Why should you consider mobile application deployment in the first place? Which apps should you mobilize? What are potential gotchas?

Mathias, a principal with wireless advisory firm Farpoint Group, also explains the role of cloud computing in deploying mobile applications and discusses other mobile app delivery options.
