Enterprise mobility conference aims to help big business take control of digital revolution

Big business has always been the engine room of global technology spending — Gartner estimates that the global IT market will be worth US$3.8 trillion in 2014, with the enterprise software market alone on pace to total US$320-billion — but it’s become impossible for it to ignore consumerisation trends like Bring Your Own Device (BYOD).

While these trends can lead to security concerns, companies to adapt, or get left behind, negatively affecting company bottom line. Increased levels of mobility mean that organisational efficiency and employee productivity have risen rapidly.

The Enterprise Mobility Conference, taking place in Johannesburg between 14 and 17 July aims to address those trends, as well as allowing opportunity people in the tech industry, to meet and discuss challenges and offer solutions around them.

The topics to be discussed include:

  • Taking control in the digital revolution
  • Developing and implementing policies to manage and secure mobile devices
  • Increasing mobile enterprise capacity while reducing costs through the use of cloud technology
  • The future of enterprise applications – designing custom-made applications for enterprise mobility
  • Increasing productivity and efficiency through the use of mobile devices – Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) strategy

More details can be found by visiting the event site.

  • Trends like BYOD are here to stay. It’s important for ALL companies to adopt new strategies to counter any potential security concerns, such as implementing MDM and clear-cut company BYOD guidelines.
