Mobile has changed the way people socialize, access information, interact with their world, and consume content. At Xamarin we work with thousands of businesses across dozens of industries, and have seen first-hand the opportunities and challenges faced by these businesses as they transition to becoming mobility-driven.
As the mobile leader in your organization, you're invited to Xamarin's exclusive Evolve Mobile Leaders Summit for executives from global businesses. Here’s how this event will transform your mobile journey:
Mobile has changed the way we work and play, and the stakes have been raised for all businesses to engage with consumers and employees in radical new ways. Mobile users want what they want, when they want it, and in their immediate context. Businesses feel an urgent need to find ways to capture users in their ‘mobile moments’ to stay relevant. But there are multiple challenges when it comes to executing on this - from identifying the right mobile opportunities in your organization to reengineering technology systems to meet the demands of mobile. Join Julie Ask, VP & Principal Analyst, Forrester Research, and co-author of ‘The Mobile Mind Shift’ as she lays out how you can best empower employees in their mobile moments, and why it requires a fundamentally different technology approach.
Chris spent the better part of 2015 building Schlumberger’s Mobile Center of Excellence (MCoE) with a goal to transform Schlumberger’s workforce with innovative, roles-based mobile solutions which improve efficiency of operations, promote a safe work environment and enable great work at any time, in any place. As the leader of this initiative, he placed significant emphasis on user experience, platform architecture, security, integrations and how best to deliver impactful solutions which align with Schlumberger’s global business transformation efforts. The Schlumberger MCoE is now successfully up and running, and the native first methodology is taking hold as the organization begins global deployment of several field services related apps in 2016. Join Chris to learn about why Schlumberger decided to build an MCoE, his experience with what worked & didn’t, and what, if anything, he would do differently today.
Mobile is far more than "just one more channel" to support; it's the channel that stitches the rest together. Mobile operates in the gaps between other platforms, delivering information and service at the point of inspiration. The best enterprise apps boost efficiency—even delight—by capitalizing on immediate context... and then encouraging nimble shifts in that context.
Create apps that enable customers and employees to move easily among channels—from mobile to desktop, from physical to digital, from retail space to office to sales visit, and back again. Helping users leap these gaps is more than a shift in technology; it's a shift in strategic perspective that requires designing for the entire user journey, not just individual platforms. This session demonstrates how to do that by exploring a rich collection of examples across industries. You'll learn to:
Use apps as sensors to capture information and intention for the user's benefit Shuttle between virtual and physical, freeing information trapped inside documents, packaging, products, even people Shift activity seamlessly between phone, tablet, and desktop Discover the relevance of the emerging internet of things Understand the critical lessons that consumer apps can teach enterprise software
This talk will cover industry perspectives on DevOps and the unique challenges faced when applying DevOps to mobile. The mobile ecosystem is fragmented with a large number of devices & operating systems that change frequently. Staying competitive requires embracing these changes through innovation and streamlined DevOps - streamlined for build, test, and frequent releases. There are multiple internal and external factors that influence these releases and this talk will feature real world examples from customers talking about their continuous integration practices in mobile.
What are the real-world implications in deploying and supporting apps? How do you know if you are testing on all the popular devices for your app? Do you have insight into your apps when they are out in the wild and in the hands of real users? Learn the importance of mobile DevOps and ways to improve your app release and management cycles.
With BYOD the new normal, app adoption accelerating, and the enterprise continuing to extend, mobile security has never been more complex or important. The demand for access through a widening variety of platforms continues to grow along with the need for auditability and granular control, and existing security measures are failing. But what should enterprises do to protect increasingly sensitive data without locking down productivity? Hear from some of the top names in the mobile security industry as they debate the current state of this industry and what mobile security 2.0 looks like.
