Mobile computing and the use of consumer devices are a fact of life, with enterprise deployments increasing. In fact, more than half of CIOs surveyed for 2013's "State of the CIO" expect to complete one or more major mobility initiatives within the next year. These will include projects to better connect remote and mobile workers to company resources in an always-on environment; projects to enable more meaningful collaboration among geographically dispersed employees and teams; and, increasingly, efforts to extend and deepen the relationship between the business and its smartphone-dependent, tablet-toting customers and suppliers.

Enterprise mobility empowers and liberates your workforce by accelerating critical business processes and boosting overall productivity. Early adopters of mobile development have already experienced these benefits as well as improved operational efficiencies, however most organizations struggle with the barriers imposed by skill set requirements (mobile developers), complicated architecture, and lengthy mobile app development cycles. We will examine the benefits and challenges associated with mobilizing your enterprise We will discuss a case study of how TiVo mobilized manager approvals from SAP's Universal Work List in only 3 weeks and will conclude the session by designing and deploying a mobile app in minutes without writing a single line of code or requiring complex APIs.
