Abstract: This presentation will discuss the outcomes and next steps from the Mobile Applications Framework Workshop held on July 17-19, 2012. The initial goal of the project is to facilitate and expedite mobile application development across USGS. The workshop brought together a small group of experts to discuss requirements for a framework that will provide one-stop-shop access to support Hardware/Device Management, Application Development Support and Policies, Guidelines and procedures, and Application Delivery.  The Workshop outcomes included recommendation of a formal process for managing USGS mobile applications as products along with a formalized Mobile Community of Practice, development of detailed workflows to cover four phases of development (Ideation, Development, Review & Approval, and Publication & Monitoring), along with development of a series of checklists and processes that will help manage each phase of the product lifecycle. While the team is initially focused on application development, it is understood that there are many other stakeholders and support groups that must be coordinated with to link in support information and processes that cover all aspects of using, developing and delivering mobile technologies to support USGS science. The primary elements of the CDI Science Support Framework that this CDI-funded project and its products focus on are the Data Life Cycle and Knowledge Management elements.
