Mobile Apps Experience Will Provide Live Demos, Educational Opportunities

FOSE 2011, the most comprehensive event for government information technology (IT) professionals, today announced that it will be featuring a Mobile Apps Experience as part of its free education session lineup at this year’s event. FOSE will be held July 19-21, 2011 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C.

The Mobile Apps Experience also will feature multiple programs focused on the GSA app store, GSA featured apps and FOSE’s partnership with leading developers of mobile apps will help define mobility and its use across the federal government.

"The mobile market is booming, and in the face of increasing budget cuts, effective mobile communications are becoming essential to supporting government operations," said Suzanne Young, FOSE Show Director. "FOSE will feature mobile apps propelling agency-wide initiatives, such as telework, that are currently in motion as well as highlight secure mobile applications that are on the forefront of government."
