This is the last in a series of five initial articles, in which I'm going to
put my thoughts and findings on the subject of Enteprise Mobility.
For this final article I have decided to sum up the thoughts and findings of
the previous articles to form an initial set of 'Steps for Success' for an
Enterprise Mobility Strategy.
Currently my thoughts are...
Take a Strategic approach that can evolve and adapt, with innovations and
opportunities that will happen in the mobile industry... For example look at
the handset and OS market and one thing that you can say is, that it is
always changing and surprising us with advances
Start small & move rapidly... You need to be agile
Identify and understand an initial pilot project... One that can immediately
show ROI Communicate and involve Stake Holders at all levels... Nothing too
BEWARE - Mobility does NOT fix broken or b... (more)
On Tuesday I reported that at CeBit in Hannover, Germany... SAP & Sybase
announced the first set of applications to Millions of Mobile Workers. This
will extend the reach of SAP Business Suite Applications (including SAP CRM),

Other than always available data, synchronization of data from device to
back-end systems and vice-versa should be a must for Mobile Information

climate. Adding the capability of Location Based Applications and data onto
that package will make extremely powerful Enterprise Mobile Applications.
On March 22, 2010 at the ESRI Worldwide Business Partner Conference &
Developer Summit in Palm Springs CA, Sybase announced advanced spat... (more)
iPad on Ulitzer
Just over one week away from the launch of the Apple iPad, Sybase has
announced the results of a survey on mobile device usage, commissioned by
Sybase and conducted by Zogby International. The survey, which was compiled
from an online survey of 2443 adults with a mobile phone, 770 of which own
smart phones, uncovered that the #1 reason U.S. consumers would use a device
such as the Apple iPad is for working on the go.
The Apple iPad is the first computer designed purely for hand-held mode. It's
not a tablet with a touchscreen. It's not a Windows PC that happens to ... (more)
Blast-off... Now just watch that baby rocket upwards!
For the USA, it is finally here, the most space age piece of computer
hardware to hit the mainstream and one that I believe, within a year, we will
all see used in places that we would not expect.
To quote Jason Schwarz on Seeking Alpha, which continues my thread and
suggests that currently the iPad is being underestimated for business.
To quote Jason...
"Anyone who previously relied on a notepad or clipboard will adopt the iPad.
Doctors will use the iPad as they move from room to room and interact with
patients, teachers will... (more)
