Blueprint for the Future of Enterprise Mobility

Moving the Enterprise Mobility Agenda Forward

BYOX World Forum has been renamed to reflect the matured thinking around enterprise mobility, which is so much bigger than simply BYO. Mobile First incorporates governance, strategy, security, devices, apps and culture; addressing the challenges in supporting a truly mobile enterprise and ensuring the best employee experience to promote productivity, cost savings, business process improvement and satisfaction.

Building on our excellent reputation of unbiased analyst-led research programmes, top quality speakers and next generation technology innovations, Mobile First: From BYOX to Mobile First brings another though-provoking event in the IT and technology landscape, with a host of new features including the quick-fire case studies, bite-sized insights, interactive panels, practical workshops and cutting edge analyst opinions.

Offering both a strategic overview covering the business critical issues around mobility, such as multi-screening behaviour, mobile applications for the enterprise, data security and privacy; to provisioning for the future; this programme delves deeper and explores the practical implementation of the above cornerstones of enterprise mobility.

Topics Include:

  • Enabling the mobile-first enterprise: Supporting mobile as a primary channel for customer engagement, and to connect an increasingly virtual workforce
  • Sourcing in a technology transient world: Hear from your suppliers as they discuss their roadmap  for the future and explore the changing procurement model as technology constantly evolves
  • Data Governance, Privacy and Data Protection: Delivering the latest update on policy, exploring how to gain employee trust and helping to build your mobile privacy policy
  • Mobile apps to drive the next phase of enterprise mobility: Beyond mobile email, how are organisations mobilizing core business applications and using apps to drive business process improvement
  • Debate: Post BYO – Who should take ownership: From self-service support to centres of excellences, who should take responsibility, and what has been the response.
  • Infrastructure provisioning: Discussing the latest innovation disruptors within mobility:  Office365, Cloud, SaaS
  • MDM vs. MAM vs. Virtualisation: Sharing practical experiences
