Welcome to the GovLoop Academy course, Apps 101, where you will learn why applications matter and how your agency can best utilize them.


By taking this course, you will be enrolled in six lessons about different types of applications, why they are important to citizens and government employees, how they work, challenges to application delivery, and what the next generation of Application Delivery Controllers looks like.

We’ll tell you exactly what an Application Delivery Controller (or ADC) is and how it can help your organization boost productivity with new cloud and mobility service models.

To learn more about what ADCs can do for your organization and what future ADCs look like, we’ll also hear from our expert David Friese, Principal Engineer at Citrix Systems.
