Last week at Mobile World Congress 2012, was a very interesting time in Barcelona, Spain. I was lucky enough to meet and interview many of the Mobile Movers and Makers in the SAP community (see the list below).

During the week I gathered the trends and futures on Mobility, Tablets, Messaging, mCommerce, Device Management & Security, Mobile Application Development and lots more from…

A general observation was that to me it seemed that everyone had an iPad and were using it in every way imaginable. Gone are the days of Tablet devices being mere ‘Executive Jewelry’
