Mobility as a customer channel enabler has attained a reasonable level of maturity. While working on new channels like wearable integration, the industry is still dealing with traditional challenges on ubiquitous employee access to enterprise resources, device security, end-user authentications and cybersecurity. In return, the firms are getting access to precious data from their mobile customers by correlating their access, interests, locations and behavioral patterns. New types of data are enabling new analytics on customer and product intelligence. Product-centric design is yielding to user-centric design. This seminar on mobile-first design and seamless delivery will include topics on responsive web design, app store enrichment, governance, mobility testing, multimodal user security, near-field communication integrations, and cloud-based service implementations. It will also cover strategic challenges to increase revenue by harnessing the seamless delivery of features and functions using the mobile platform.
