I recently had a discussion with a potential client in a government department. Imagine my surprise when i found that they were using a cloud CRM platform to develop a app to monitor a recycling program. Why I asked? The answer, plain and simple, was built-in security, storage and tools to easily develop and maintain the app. And, of course, once developed, the app could be accessed anywhere and anytime.
Not long after this an enterprise client asked us to develop an app to manage their infrastructure. Based on our discussion with the government client, we suggested that the app be developed on the same platform.
Some of the entities in the government are thinking in innovative ways and we can learn from them.
