Mobile devices are not just for fun anymore. Most companies now deal with a wide variety of smartphones connected to internal systems – including Android, iOS and Blackberry. Additionally, its reported that over 22% of businesses plan on deploying tablets in 2012.

However, this presents an interesting landscape for business IT to try and navigate. How are devices controlled? Should device freedom be allowed? Should multiple platforms be supported?

When it comes to developing custom LOB applications, things get even trickier. Native development is difficult and has major limitations. Almost all mobile devices get applications from some sort of app store where everything is public. If device freedom is allowed, multiple applications need to be written to reach all users. This paradigm doesn’t work for business. What are the other options?

In this session, Burke Holland will talk about how HTML5 can allow businesses to leverage their current developer skill sets, allow device freedom for employees and significantly reduce the cost of application development and deployment. It’s a mobile world, and it’s only a matter of time before virtually all business are faced with making some very important and strategic decisions. Know the options. Know HTML5 and the business of mobile.
