In fact, it's been well-documented that poorly designed apps, web sites and other digital engagements can result in lost sales, dwindling customer satisfaction, silo-ed applications, and unproductive employees. A recent IDG study shows that only 15% of organizations feel they are equipped to design and develop apps to avoid these pitfalls.

InfoWeek and IBM invites you to attend a webcast on March 13th to learn how IT professionals use these five development principles today to create a holistic engagement platform for enterprise applications:
We are very exciting to have four incredible subject matter experts speaking on this webcast! To continue the discussion of engaging apps and dev techniques, Grady Booch and Tim O'Reilly will give a preview of the developer unconference being held at IBM Impact 2013. Developers and architects are encouraged to submit talk topics for the unconference now via the WebSphere user group community. This is the chance for developers to set the agenda at the upcoming event in Las Vegas.
