Thoughts from Gartner Catalyst: Five Considerations for Driving Usage of Enterprise Apps at Scale
In August I attended one of the best conferences I have been to in recent years: the Gartner Catalyst event in San Diego. It was my first time attending this show, which addresses the needs of IT practitioners with in-depth practical sessions, many focused on enterprise mobility.
I attended many sessions in which various Gartner analysts demonstrated EMM products, highlighting key issues to consider when evaluating vendors. As part of the event I also had the pleasure of collaborating with our partner Mocana to create a great thought-provoking panel session titled “5 Considerations for Driving Usage of Enterprise Apps at Scale”.
During the session four mobility experts from Mocana, SAP, DMI, and Virtuoso discussed the five critical things you must bear in mind as you plan your mobile strategy:
- User Experience (UX) is Job #1
- The Mobile App is the New Security and Policy Endpoint
- Design for Scale From the Beginning
- Cloud Pushes the Limits
- Mobile App Usage Analytics are Critical
Based on the audience engagement of the session we decided to recreate it as a webinar to share with you. The video linked below will give you the same insight we shared at Gartner Catalyst – and explore why each of these considerations is vital for the success of any mobility initiative.
The session is moderated by Alan Panezic, VP of Products at Mocana. Alan has spoken globally at many events including our Mobile Security seminar held in Toronto in April. He is an engaging and insightful expert who does a fantastic job of translating complex topics into logical considerations. SAP’s own Matt Carrier, sr. director of product management, boasts 15 years of experience in mobility joined the session to share SAP’s perspective on securing at the app level and in the cloud. Kip Wagner, SVP of Managed Mobility Services at DMI brought an integrator’s perspective and Quentin Hurst, EVP of Business Development and Solution Delivery at Virtuoso shared his personal experience as a former CIO at a medical equipment company. These four perspectives make for a great discussion that I’m pleased to be able to share with you.
