Building Apps in a Mobile‑Centric World


Pundits have been espousing a “mobile‑first” approach to application development for years, but with mobile traffic now growing at nearly 60% per year, adopting it is simply no longer optional. What sets great developers apart from the rest – or, quite frankly, what separates winners from losers – is the ability to innovate, adapt, and build extraordinary new products and experiences faster than the competition.

In this webinar, special guest speaker Michael Facemire, Principal Analyst at Forrester Research, introduces you to the application delivery model that Forrester Research is calling the four‑tier engagement platform. They believe it's the ideal way to build your applications for a mobile‑centric world.

In this webinar, we’ll cover:

What a four‑tier architecture is and how it helps address scalability issues for mobile

How this modern approach is already being used industry‑leading organizations such as Dropbox, Netflix, and Uber

The implications of the four‑tier architecture for how you architect and build your apps

How you can begin to move your current apps to a four‑tier architecture today
