Mobile Technology; Embracing a new paradigm
The way that we live, work and play has changed beyond recognition – with mobile technology at its heart. An ever increasing range of low-cost, highly sophisticated devices have flooded the consumer market, and began percolating into the corporate space. Innovative businesses are starting to discover and exploit the exciting new opportunities offered by mobile technology, including the strong case for deploying mobile apps.
Looking to the future, how will the next generation of mobile devices, such as wearables impact businesses? Wearables have begun to gain traction in the consumer space, just like smartphone and tablets, they offer rich functionality which have potential to be harnessed within a variety of use cases to transform business practices.
We are delighted to be joined by Steve Reynolds who will map the mobile technology landscape, before opening up to a discussion with the audience about how to devise and implement a future proof mobile strategy.
