Five Mobile Business Intelligence Traps to Avoid

Businesses should avoid these pitfalls as they dive into mobile BI deployments.

Mobile applications are white-hot as companies seek to capitalize on the market-on-the-move. Naturally, creators of mobile apps are much in demand, and these app developers must possess top-notch skills, experience and education, like the latest technical knowledge on mobile platforms and security.


G.1440, an IT staffing recruiting firm based in Maryland, contributed a good example of a job description that captures the essential responsibilities and credentials.


The iOS Mobile Application Developer job description, available for free in our IT Downloads library, offers a detailed run-down of the requirements that a prospective candidate must have, including:

  • Developing applications using iOS 5, Mac OS X 10.7 and XCode 4
  • Working with SFTP, WebDAVand HTTP
  • Familiarity with SSH, OpenPGP and SSL encryption tech


If you're an employer hunting for the right hire to add to your team, use G.1440's real-world example as a starting point in creating a solid job description. Or, as a job-seeker, use the sample description to compare and add depth to your resume as appropriate (but, please be truthful, of course).
