You’ve enabled them to “B” their own “D”. Corporate email, calendar and contacts are in all employees’ pockets. It’s all secured with MDM and containers. Now what?
The next level up the mobility value ladder focuses on a firm’s proprietary data and business processes. But how to provide these mobile-y? Code your own native apps? HTML5 browser apps? Build upon dashboarding packages? And does the security plan for horizontal services still apply for sensitive corporate data? And how might the rules change when one’s asked to provide this data to customers?
This WSTA seminar focuses both on practical ways to harness mobility that can change the game for your employees, providing insight into both current business processes and historical data, tailored to their unique business needs as well as evolving the mobile foundation to support this ever-evolving platform.
