    Businesses are rushing to develop mobile apps for their customers and for their field staff. But as these initiatives proliferate, firms run the risk of the same disconnected architectures they experienced with the rise of the Web. You need to understand:

    • Mobile's impact on architecture domains.
    • What mobile means for solution architecture governance.
    • Tomorrow’s challenges that you should address today.
