Historically, mobile solutions (tablets, GPS, etc.) have been viewed as data collection and data review mechanisms in the field. Fully integrated mobile solutions with real-time data were pipe dreams. Mobile GIS is in the process of not only evolutionary change, but on the brink of revolutionary influence on how business is done. Our presentation will examine the impacts that mobility, GIS, and mobile GIS will have on the business enterprise. Careful consideration of IT infrastructure, business workflows, security, and organizational education are required for effective deployment strategies. These factors, tools, and available technologies will be discussed to assist attendees in developing their own strategies for successful development, integration, and deployment of mobility solutions within their organization.
