Device-independent, seamless use to tools on market data, partner services, transactions, analytics and videoconferencing are required for day-to-day efficiencies. Expectations during use of mobile channels to these enterprise applications include high-speed access for all devices, locations and functions. Technologists have to drive these efficiencies across the service delivery stack from remote devices to the back-end data center. The user experiences for the various channels of interaction need to be individually optimized to maintain consistency. Key architecture decisions on multimodal user authentication, application architecture and roaming, data security, context-aware usage policies, device management and demand management define success of the mobile enterprise. Adoption of emerging tools and technologies including machine-to-machine and wearable integrations require a continuously-adaptive framework. This WSTA seminar is designed to provide an interactive forum for sharing today’s tools and practices that the industry needs for this dynamic framework.
