A new webcast, featuring Gartner analyst Van Baker and FileMaker’s Ryan Rosenberg, explores trends and best practices in creating and managing custom business-to-employee (B-to-E) mobile apps.

Baker, Gartner vice president and research director, discusses how innovative companies are improving productivity, efficiency and customer satisfaction with B-to-E apps. Baker also details key requirements for B-to-E apps, such as security and integration with business systems, which are quite different from those of consumer apps. He summarizes issues, such as selection of tools and the power of native functions, for IT to consider when building custom apps.

Rosenberg, FileMaker vice president of marketing and services, explains the advantages of using the FileMaker Platform for iPad and iPhone apps. You can find the webcast at http://www.accelacomm.com/acc/filemaker/0/50235715/ .
