FM Academy -Look Before You Leap : Pick the Right Deployment Model for Your FileMaker Go Application

(FileMaker Go is very easy to install, thanks to iTunes and the App Store. Many FileMaker applications are immediately accessible once FileMaker Go is installed, requiring little (if any) modification before your mobile users are connected and productive.

Despite this relatively ideal scenario, there are a number of important factors to consider when extending an application to users on any new platform, and FileMaker is no exception. Examples include the development style of the existing solution, security concerns, data availability requirements, the physical network topology and performance expectations. Picking the deployment model that takes all of these into account and is the best fit for your application is an essential part of any successful FileMaker Go rollout.

During this presentation, Mark considered these factors and helped ‘plot your path’ to deployment. Mark illustrated possible choices, discussed their respective pros and cons, and offered examples that demonstrated what type of real-world scenarios would be best suited to each approach.

Topics Included: Identifying and defining factors that can impact a successful deployment Outlining your deployment options and their relative strengths and weaknesses Matching your application’s requirements to the best deployment model
