The coming wave of connected devices and the apps that run on them promise to be very beneficial to businesses who know how to leverage them. But they also present substantial challenges for the IT departments that will manage them.
Coping with an explosion of connected devices
The mobile enterprise has become far more complex as businesses and other organizations struggle to manage a growing variety of smartphones and tablets purchased and used by their employees. Those struggles will only increase as the BYOD trend picks up steam and wearable devices make us more connected. Hewlett-Packard’s Omar Javaid will tell us how the BYOD trend will increasingly affect the enterprise, and AirWatch Chairman Alan Dabbiere will talk about the strategies and policies that will be most effective in managing all those gadgets.
Leaning on the cloud to cut communications costs
Corporations are beginning to turn to the cloud to minimize traditional telecom costs and potentially eliminate inflexible contracts. Jeff Lawson will discuss how Twilio is taking on behemoths like Cisco and Avaya with fast, scalable offerings for a variety of communications needs.
Join us at Mobilize next month as we explore the opportunities and challenges of the next generation of the mobile enterprise.
