I’ve been thinking a lot about what “Modern Mobility” means, as I just bought my son his first iPad mini for Christmas and I’ve been preparing for a webinar on the topic.
I was recalling the day, back in 2010 that I got my first iPad. I remember talking to a colleague who was showing me all of the coolest apps that were available for iPad. We both had iPhones and we were eager to see how iPads could change both the way we interact with technology both personally and professionally. I remember asking him if there was a Facebook app – and I was very surprised that there wasn’t. You actually had to go to the browser and type “www.facebook.com” (imagine!) Adoption of Facebook was strong on iPhones at the time but it was almost non-existent on iPads. Facebook quickly learned that people simply expected to see an app. They quickly created an app to meet user expectations – and adoption soared.
Fast forward to the present, and I honestly can’t remember the last time I looked at Facebook on a browser – I’m a mobile only user. And I’m not only a mobile-only Facebook user, but a mobile-first user in every way both personally and at work. If there is a mobile app I’ll use it before I’ll ever boot up my laptop.
I’ve been thinking about this as I prepare to moderate a webinar tomorrow with SAP experts Anamarie Franc and Senthil Krishnapillai and industry analyst Charlotte Dunlap of Current Analysts. Our topic is “Modern Mobility in Today’s Experience-Driven World”.
I’d love to get your input on questions to ask these experts. The session will be delivered in two sections:
- First, an overview by analyst Charlotte Dunlap, who will be discussing key trends in mobile app development and UX.
And then a discussion on three key points:
- How UX is a key priority today
- How mobile devices are the tools that businesses rely on to transform the way work is done
- How mobile and UX go hand in hand
Since you, our SCN readers, are the people most actively engaged in these topics, I’d like to gather your questions to ask both Charlotte and the panel! Your questions can be anything related to mobile and UX. We won’t spend a lot of time on products, though we’ll touch briefing on SAP UXaaS and SAP Fiori mobile service.
Please take a moment to comment on this blog and send ay ideas my way… My hope is that as we gearing the year down we can share some insights into trends we can expect n 2016 and the technologies you should consider next year. I hope your contribution can help us share a few nuggets to help you evolve your own career as a leader in the topic areas of UX and mobile.
