WHY
ATTEND

As a business disruptor, mobile computing is dramatically changing how companies navigate the constantly evolving global landscape. It’s transforming how businesses engage customers, streamline processes, improve worker productivity, and inform decision makers. Mobile technologies and their impact on business must be on the radar of every executive responsible for the success of the company.

At the InformationWeek and MicroStrategy Mobile Business Futures Summit, you’ll have the opportunity to hear from business peers and technology experts who have embraced this business disruption and discovered new ways to empower employees, improve customer experience, and unlock additional revenue streams. An array of pioneers in business mobility, as well as forward-thinking industry analysts, will be on hand to help make sense of the rapid evolution of mobility and give a glimpse of what’s beyond the horizon. It’s your opportunity to learn how mobile applications are creating a more flexible and dynamic business environment; how multiple digital devices are creating data management challenges; and how security and compliance have become your number one business concern.

Among the topics we’ll discuss:

How to embrace business disruption brought on by mobility and gain a competitive advantage over slower moving contenders

What CEOs want to know about security, ROI, productivity, and budgeting, and how business and IT leaders are collaborating to address these issues

Ways to create a mobile business mindset in your company – regardless of the existing corporate culture – to improve the attitudes, values, and work styles of the people using the technologies

Best practices from business leaders responsible for mobile strategies in their respective vertical markets

                                        9:15 – 9:45AM - Keynote: “How Safe Is Your Current Business Model: Disruption in the Age of Mobility”
                                        As mobile technologies become more prolific, business models of all types and in all industries are being challenged. This disruption, driven by anywhere/anytime computing and an increasingly mobile and global workforce, is challenging business leaders to more rapidly and more consistently rethink how they’re doing business.
                                        9:45 – 10:30AM - Panel Session: “‘Is Our Data Going to be Safe?’ (And Other Burning Questions CEOs Are Demanding CIOs Answer About Mobility)”
                                        CEOs are asking some new and important questions of their business and technology leaders about how prepared the company is to handle the tidal wave of change – and opportunity – that mobility is bringing to the business. These questions revolve around the company’s sensitive data, their productivity, their ability to innovate and grow revenue, and ability stave off competition (for instance, “How do we know we’re getting real value?” “What is the staff really doing with these devices?”) Find out which questions are most strategic – and whether you and your business and technology peers are prepared to answer them.
                                        10:30 – 11:00AM - Panel / Fire Side Chat: “Innovative Mobile Business Ideas You’ve Never Tried (But Should)”
                                        Some leading innovators in creating new revenue streams with mobile technologies and platforms share their ideas and discuss some of the challenges they faced in achieving their ultimate successes.
                                        11:00 – 11:15AM - Key Takeaways & Closing Remarks
                                        There are profound differences between mobile apps and conventional Windows clients – not just in how the two are built, but also the functionality each prioritizes, the release cycles on which they’re developed. The distinctions even come down to the attitudes, values, and work styles of the people using them. Here’s how you and your business leaders can use the ideas discussed at the event help establish a mobile business mindset.
                                        11:15AM - Event Conclusion

                                                                    As mobile technologies become more prolific, business models of all types and in all industries are being challenged. This disruption, driven by anywhere/anytime computing and an increasingly mobile and global workforce, is challenging business leaders to more rapidly and more consistently rethink how they’re doing business.
                                                                    3:45 – 4:30PM - Panel: “‘Is Our Data Going to be Safe?’ (And Other Burning Questions CEOs Are Demanding CIOs Answer About Mobility)”

These questions revolve around the company’s sensitive data, their productivity, their ability to innovate and grow revenue, and ability stave off competition (for instance, “How do we know we’re getting real value?” “What is the staff really doing with these devices?”) Find out which questions are most strategic – and whether you and your business and technology peers are prepared to answer them.
                                                                    4:30 – 5:00PM – Panel / Fire Side Chat: “Innovative Mobile Business Ideas You’ve Never Tried (But Should)”
