Full session description:
Mobile Government: Today, Tomorrow and Beyond
In 2012, the number of smartphone users will reach 106.7 million with 94% of these users accessing the mobile internet.  With citizens and government employees increasingly adopting multiple mobile device and having increased expectations on mobile services, how do agencies adapt?

In this wide-ranging training, we will explore a number of mobile topics from:



  • Optimizing your content for a mobile audience
  • Making the decision to use a mobile app vs. a mobile website (or both)
  • Managing content across multiple platforms -- from Android, Windows, Apple, and Blackberry
  • Launching a “Bring Your Own Device” strategy based on our research from a recent GovLoop  BYOD survey and guide
