Mobile Transformation: Leaders Connect On Strategy, Insight




The widening enterprise IT landscape will soon have to include everything from true unified endpoint management to layered security and how automation, artificial intelligence, and the Internet of Things (IoT) all play into it. Mobile transformation is not a buzzword: it’s now a necessary mindset for chief information officers and their fellow IT administrators to behold in order to push the business forward.

On November 9 and 10, 2017, dozens and dozens of mobile technology professionals will gather in San Diego, California to learn, connect, network, and better understand the challenges and successes of their peers across a multitude of industries at the Enterprise Mobility Transformation Exchange.

The event will open with Kevin Burden, Vice President of Mobility Research & Data Strategy at 451 Research, addressing the audience and explaining where mobile transformation is truly headed, and how IT pros can stay ahead of the emerging trends set to disrupt the enterprise mobility ecosystem.

Exchanges, which are closed-door meetings in which participants can share candidly, aren’t designed to just throw information at attendees or force decision makers to walk a trade show floor. Rather, the event is inclusive and engaging, as the two days will offer two Think Tank sessions, two executive panels, and six round table discussions that include an informal question and answer format.

What attendees learn at the invite-only event comes from insights offered by peers in different industries, and how that can translate to other companies.

“It’s the ‘one man’s trash is another man’s fortune’ outlook,” said Chris Hewitt, DuPont’s Center of Excellence leader, who will be speaking at the event. “DuPont developed a way to take the ‘trash’ from harvested corn residue and create a multi-million dollar, first of its kind industry. The role I challenged my team to take was to explore options with our business to go beyond the legacy way of thinking and determine the art of possible.”

Hewitt will be lending strategy and techniques to the group that he found successful for his own enterprise. “We’ll explain why DuPont Industrial Biosciences choose to pioneer the use of Telemetry in the cellulosic ethanol space. By utilizing IoT I will share how DuPont developed a solution to fill the void of an industry gap resulting in driving costs down and designing a model for the future,” he told Enterprise Mobility Exchange.

Other topics will involve how to unite mobility, innovation, and the business, but will also drill down to the specific tracks like application security, implementing wearables in the enterprise, and improving artificial intelligence to push technology forward.

For Kumar Srivastava, the closing keynote presenter, he’ll use his platform to share the incredible opportunity IoT is presenting for enterprise mobility.

“The focus of the presentation will be on how to build an IoT specific data and compute architecture that enables the organization to understand, react, and iterate to the signals delivered through their IoT ecosystem,” he told Enterprise Mobility Exchange.

Srivastava is VP of Product & Strategy for BNY Mellon’s Silicon Innovation Center, and looks forward to attendees understanding how IoT can create ROI.

“I expect the audience to get key insights into what a good architecture and strategy looks like for ensuring high ROI from IoT investments that bleed into AI/ML, data and API strategies,” he said. “Audiences will understand how to design an intelligence hub that brings together the best in class technology to enable cutting edge applications.”
