In 2011-2012, demand for mobile applications will surge, helping to spur hiring in the IT sector. Mobile application developers will be needed to meet the demand for more applications. Along with this will come the realization that this type of development requires the same rigor and support that’s given to any other type of development effort, but with a greater need for speed-to-market. New software development and support utilities will be developed and agile development techniques will grow in practice in a competitive and mobile-driven economy. How to adequately secure data and mobile devices will continue to be a major concern.
