As head of Appcelerator's Alliances team, I have the privilege of working with many of our talented technology and integration partners as they build out our ecosystem and leverage the Titanium platform to deliver rich mobile applications for their clients. I am constantly amazed by the energy, excitement, and unique point of view (POV) these dedicated entrepreneurs bring to our community. Today, I'm pleased to introduce one of our integration partner luminaries-- Brad Weber, founder and president of InspiringApps (based in Boulder, Colorado) to guestblog on a topic where we are seeing increasing interest-- enterprise applications. I met Brad a few months ago, and was immediately struck by his experience with, focus on, and passion for delivering engaging, rich business applications to his clients. So I asked him to share his perspective with the Appcelerator community at large: business applications — the past, present, and future.
