As mobile apps and websites explode into the enterprise it is becoming more and more important for analysts to understand the unique dynamics of mobile projects. All of the skills you’ve used successfully to define requirements and build traditional IT systems still apply, but there are some new questions that need to be considered for mobile projects. If these new questions are not addressed your mobile project faces an uphill battle to success. This presentation outlines these new questions, sprinkled with real life examples from our Fortune 500 clients, across all major phases of the project lifecycle, from project conception through deployment and support phases. Some of the things you’ll learn are:

  • Given all the excitement for our app, how do we manage scope creep?
  • What mobile platform should we target first; iOS, Android, or something else?
  • How do I make sure we’re not rewriting this app every year for a new phone?
  • How do I get ready for the Internet of Things?
