    REPORT: Building A Mobile Business Case: It's A Steep Climb

    Business Case: The Mobile App Development Playbook

    August 31, 2017 Julie A. Ask, Jeffrey S. Hammond, Michael Facemire

Moreover, the cost of app development is a drop in the bucket compared with the cost of powering apps through infrastructure that taps into real-time information and services. Application development and delivery leaders must carefully plan a business case that captures the benefits, total costs, and risks of mobile development. This report lays out the steps in that process.
