Enterprise mobile app development: Strategies that drive downloads

Is your enterprise mobile app development strategy download-worthy? Discuss mobile app dev in our SearchCIO tweet chat Wednesday, Oct. 29, at 3 p.m. EDT.

As on-the-go computing gains increasing traction in the workplace, enterprises with a mobile mindset are developing strategies centered on the development of proprietary mobile applications. But what does it take to develop a five-star strategy that will drive consumers to download your company’s app? Should organizations be developing their own in-house app stores? And is it preferable to release an app and tweak it according to customer feedback, or keep it under wraps until it’s just right?

Join SearchCIO Wednesday, Oct. 29 at 3 p.m. EDT to talk about mobile application development, and how CIOs can steer their mobile app strategy toward enterprise gains. Joining us will be Bryan Barringer, @collab_me, an independent enterprise mobility consultant specializing in user adoption, user experience and interface design, customer acquisition, product design/management and strategy, and business development. Most recently at FedEx, he was in charge of evaluating mobile solutions for operations and sales professionals and leading FedEx Services' Office of Mobility and Collaboration.

Among the topics we expect to discuss during the tweet chat: strategic planning for mobile application development, app dev methodologies that work, the importance of the mobile user experience, what CIOs and experts have learned from real-life app deployments, and what the future of mobile app dev might look like.

SearchCIO editors will lead the event from the site's Twitter handle, @SearchCIO, joined by other TechTarget editors, writers, experts and followers. Follow the discussion hashtag, #CIOChat, to chime in.
