I talk mobile a lot – it’s a basic element of my job. As with any industry, the enterprise mobility space has developed its own vocabulary. This tends to lead to a lot of acronym speak which can be quite confusing.

There is apparently no shortage of projects managers. Rather, there is a shortage of development resources they need to get the job done. As a result, they have to take on more, often beyond what they are qualified to do.
