Information Technology Peer Group Meeting 

Mobile Application Development and Emerging Mobile Strategies 
October 18, 2017 09:00 AM - 03:00 PM 
How best to develop and deploy an effective enterprise mobile strategy? 

Mobile is no longer fashionable, but a simple reality of the world we live in today. The pervasiveness of mobile devices globally has meant a huge influx of new apps developed for mobile consumers. The Apple App store boasts close to 2.2 million of these apps while Google Play has over 2.7 million Apps currently. For most users across the world, mobile is the preferred device. Designing, developing and deploying good mobile applications is critical for most organizations today. But developing new apps doesn’t simply mean building great apps, but staying abreast with the changes in technology, trends in the industry, and interacting with peers to learn about tips and tricks to help you stay ahead of the game.

This meeting will give mobile specialists and IT professionals the opportunity to discuss how best to develop and deploy mobile solutions, discuss challenges and issues in the mobile realm and share best practices. Presenters at this meeting includes mobile specialists from GOOGLE and the leader for the Mobile Center of Excellence at KIMBERLY-CLARK Corporation. Join a community of mobile specialists representing some of the most recognizable companies of Wisconsin to learn, network and benchmark on leading trends and practices in the mobile environment.
