The Jerusalem Business Networking Forum - JBNF
invites you to the Jerusalem App Event, 2013:
How APPs Increase Your Business:
The Megatrend that is Redefining the IT World
On Wednesday, December 25, 2013, at 5:45 pm (presentations are followed by networking until they kick us out at 9:00pm)
Why is an app an essential commercial ‘must’?
It's not just internet companies; it seems that everyone has an app. Shops, Egged, even lawyers and accountants these days have an app associated with their business. The smartphone has become the true mobile computer, taking over from laptops and with over 1 billion new smart phones annually, they are driving the computing and software market. Apps, the software for smart phones, caters to a market over ten times larger than the traditional computer market and growing.
Why does my business need one? How does my business get one? Your business may possibly not be relevant without an App! How do I create a start up that makes apps? Does it matter if I have an Android or an Iphone?
JBNF has a great panel coming to give answers to these questions and more. It is an event that will provided something for everyone, from the expert down to the person who is too bamboozled by the jargon to even know what to ask. It will be a great opportunity to see what Jerusalem has to offer in terms of Apps development and resources.
