Constituents want constant access to their academic, work, and social environments, while embracing mobile computing as part of their lifestyle. Pushing essential information and services to mobile devices has gone from optional to mandatory. Students and employees expect instant access to maps, directories, academics, and other vital IT services to help them navigate their campus or work experience when they are mobile. Campus communities and organizations can require a variety of custom services, propelling CIOs and IT administrators to deliver personalized mobile content to each group. Now institutions and organizations have a reliable, open source solution that meets the demand of constituents who are using mobile technology, while allowing the institution or organization to stay in control of the platform.
