The Mobile Enterprise

The age of mobility is here.
Are your strategies ahead of the game, or barely keeping up?

Chicago, IL | October 20, 2011


Whether company supported or not, employees (and customers and vendors) have gone mobile. This rapid paradigm shift has the potential to turn an IT deparment on its head. As an IT leader, it's your job to ensure secure access to corporate-owned data, support worker productivity, and develop policies, training and support to meet the growing needs of the mobile workforce.

To be successful, you need access to industry strategies that deliver and the practical insights of peers who are adapting their own organizations to the mobile workforce. You'll get this and more at our professional development seminar, where you'll explore the rise of mobilocracy, effective mobile device policies, required security upgrades, the impact on worker productivity, and much more.

Because if you're not addressing the issues of mobility now, disaster could be right around the corner.

Join Top IT Executives from Axis Capital, CNA Financial, OptionMonster Holdings and Smalley Steel Ring...

They will discuss a range of issues to help you succeed:

  • How to balance enterprise data security and the need to access that data any time, any where

  • Best practices for developing mobile device policies that user-accepted and deliver results

  • Mobile computing technologies and trends that will influence how you manage this shift

  • and more!

The irreversible shift towards 'anytime, anywhere' connectivity means that the first – and maybe the only – opportunity you have to connect with your customers is via their mobile device. Recent research has shown that you have less than five seconds to provide an engaging mobile experience – if you fail to deliver on this expectation, 74% of your visitors will simply give up and go somewhere else. And remember: Your fiercest competitors, the disruptive 'ankle biters' and the social networking grapevine are all just a click away. In this session, Richard Stone will discuss the critical customer experience elements that should be part of every company’s mobility strategy, and will share the best practices that we have developed in helping thousands of companies around the world to successfully manage their customer’s mobile experience.
