(Past Event)

Enterprise Everywhere

Corporate IT professionals from Enterprise organisations have requested an exploration into the future of the Mobile Enterprise.

New technologies, the influx of smart devices, cross-border legislation, employment policies and a business requirement for a flexible approach are demanding that organisations keep on top of all options.

Output

Summary

Representing the peak of industry knowledge, experience and best practice, Enterprise Everywhere will balance real-world user experience with supplier expertise, and present case studies, master classes, Q&A sessions and technical surgeries.

Designed to inspire ideas, provoke discussion and prompt action, the conference will give you relevant, practical and up-to-date information you can take away and use.

Objectives

This conference will focus on the impact to the infrastructure of delivering, supporting and managing a Mobile Workforce. Consumerisation is a part of the driving force behind this change - but many other aspects (cost, new technologies, BC / DR, demands for flexible working) are driving organisations to consider new ways of working and how to support this.
