I believe if the USG continues an isolated platform strategy then they will continue to get suboptimal solutions.
For example, the consistent believe that "Windows is the platform" leads to the Windows team being group to pick the browser (IE) leading to outdated solutions for a modern world.
A successful mobile solution needs to make the browser the platform and divorce this from a Windows-centric view of IT.
I've seen some talk in the press that the Federal CIO doesn't specifically think the Gov should be building apps.
However, I believe that it's critical for Gov to build apps, even just initially. Make the source free, get a nonprofit to own it later but apps and workflow will be two powerful tools for leveraging mobility for the Federal workforce.
While the current EA process does not yield the correct level of data it should be possible to have every agency report what it spends on plain-old telephone systems (POTS).
I suspect it would then be easy to do a cost analysis as to whether _all_ employees can go mobile, vs. allowing this to tricle out.
