A Mobile Strategy should not be developed in a vacuum from an agency’s Cloud Strategy. Mobility is dependent on where data is stored, how it is accessed, and how you can manipulate it. Understanding where and how an agency will store and secure the data that is necessary to make the applications useful and empower the end user will make a mobile strategy more effective. The Federal Mobility Strategy must integrate, standardize, and secure the data in conjunction with how that data will be accessed. As technology accelerates the move towards the device being used as the portal to access government data, not storing and securing the data, the mobile strategy must coordinate its efforts with the centralized storage of data This is consistent with efforts to utilize cloud services for data storage.
