Mobile Future Forward: Enterprise Mobility: IBM

Mobile Future Forward: Enterprise Mobility: IBM

Last week Apple and IBM announced their historic Enterprise Mobility deal. Microsoft in a series of memos and presentations this month declared that it is essentially betting the company on redefining productivity. In one of the hottest mobile segments – IoT – Enterprises are the ones who are driving the most revenue and tangible value. Enterprise mobility is getting redefined in so many respects – from the use of sensors to drive tactical decisions, from securing a global and mobile workforce, from creating collaborative moments of productivity, from putting true “analysis” and “data” at the fingertips of managers and field engineers, that it will see a complete transformation of what the world thinks of enterprise mobility. We saw some of these trends coming in our work with AT&T last year.

The Apple/IBM deal can have a significant impact on how enterprises use devices and think of applications. We are fortunate to have Paul Brody, VP and Mobile Practice Leader at IBM, one of the leaders who was behind this deal from day 1, to talk about how enterprises worldwide are thinking about mobility, workflows, operations, ROI, and business models. Paul has a deep global understanding of the enterprise challenges and has the experience of coming up with solutions. He joins a stellar cast of leaders to discuss the present and the future of enterprise mobility.
