Mobile Computing

Community information
Welcome to the mobile computing community on BrightTALK! With the consumerization of IT and the widespread adoption of mobile devices across the globe, mobile computing has become an important part of many people's lives in a culture of bring your own device (BYOD). With mobile devices doubling as work phones and more employees working from home, businesses need to provide secure access to data and work applications from anywhere at any time. Join this growing community and hear from industry thought leaders in webinars and videos as they share their insight on mobile computing research and trends.
  • Low-code platforms have become a critical factor in helping AD&D organizations rapidly deliver applications to win, serve and retain customers.

    With these platforms, enterprises are routinely delivering apps much faster than conventional methods. But can these platforms truly scale across the full modern app lifecycle? What are the top use cases for deploying a low-code platform?

    Join John Rymer of Forrester Research for an engaging discussion about the innovative ways organizations are utilizing low-code platforms across the app lifecycle. Hear from IT executives with Autoliv, Estafeta and NES Financial as they talk candidly about how low-code platforms have driven growth and competitive advantage in their organizations.
  • IT security risks are changing, and undoubtingly increasing in complexity and frequency. Enterprises across the globe are struggling to not only keep up, but to maintain a secure network environment. From a recent breach by hackers to gain sensitive information of more than 100,000 taxpayers, to the breach of 110 million consumer records, the cyber threat landscape is getting worse every year. Hackers are faster, and organizations are taking longer to discover the breaches, giving thieves hours, days, and even weeks to explore the most private and sensitive company data.

    Gemalto has identified key steps to help secure your enterprise network, certainly one of the first areas fraudsters attempt to infiltrate.

    Join us on September 28th for an informative presentation that will help you plan a strategy to protect your most critical assets.
  • VMware Horizon View allows IT organizations to deliver virtual or hosted desktops and applications through a single platform to users. The success of these virtual desktop deployments is linked to the user experience: virtual desktops have to deliver better performance than physical desktops.

    The heterogeneous, multi-tier, inter-dependent nature of the underlying infrastructure makes performance monitoring, diagnosis and reporting a challenge. When users complain that “the virtual desktop or application is slow”, IT administrators often struggle to determine the actual cause of the problem. Is it the network, database, application, virtualization platform, connection server, storage or the virtual desktop?

    This webinar will help you learn how to unlock the benefits of desktop and application virtualization by enabling your organization to monitor, diagnose and report on the performance of your VMware Horizon View infrastructure.
  • Robots and drones have captivated us for more than half a century. When you think about a robot, you might automatically think about Rosie from the Jetsons. However, the next revolution of robotics will be very different than what you think. Robotics will enhance everyday life by enabling a broad range of applications from smart home to healthcare and transportation.

    Why now? Historically, robots have been pre-programmed to complete tasks in industrial settings, but thanks to the same technology powering our smart phones, robots are poised to evolve into intelligent, intuitive machines capable of processing their environments quickly and efficiently - both on the ground and in the air. Robots will be seamlessly integrated with everyday life, handling tasks once too time-consuming or tedious for us.

    In this webinar, we'll discuss:

    *The key consumer and commercial applications of robots and drones

    *The role robots will play in societies and economies

    *How smartphone technologies will pave the way to robotics' future

    * How cognitive technologies will transform our lives and business

    * How Qualcomm is fostering innovation and helping the ecosystem

    * The foundation of many IoT applications in shaping the way to robotics

    Since the beginning of time, marketers have understood that location matters. From putting guys on corners wearing sandwich boards to having airplanes dragging message banners, marketers use proximity marketing to snag hot prospects and leads when the moment is hot. Knowing where your customers are has never been easier, thanks to their own smartphone's internal GPS. Now you can target those prospects who are in the same state, city or even the same block as your salesman. Through geo-fencing and iBeacons you can even send a message to them the moment they step inside your store -- or try to lure them out of your competitor's store too.

    The flip side? You risk creeping out and alienating your customer base. Don't know where to start? Want that next great idea? Our experts will talk through the basics to master level geolocation triggers through mobile marketing automation in a fast-paced discussion. Register today!

    In this webinar, you'll
    * Learn the difference between geo-fencing, geo-targeting and geolocation
    * Discover the savvy geolocation techniques being used by today's top marketers

    There’s more marketing data available than ever, and that’s exactly why it’s so challenging to truly make sense of it all. While cloud-based data platforms have accelerated the availability and access of marketing data, it hasn’t made the marketer’s job any easier. It’s just the opposite. ‘Mo’ data, mo’ problems.’
    VB Insight’s new research on analytics shows that brands plan to increase their spending on the category by a whopping 73 percent over the next 3 years. For big market cap B2C companies, it’s closer to a 100 percent increase.

    The trouble is most marketing organizations are lukewarm on both how good their own insights are and how good their business partners are at making their insights actionable.

    This webinar will cover how top marketers are using marketing data to their advantage and driving huge value with data.

    Attendees will:
    * Learn the primary objectives for marketing analytics organizations today
    * Get an overview of the massively complex marketing data ecosystem. We counted 800+ vendors in use across 10 key marketing use cases

    A person’s name is the sweetest and most important sound in any language, according to Dale Carnegie. Clearly Mr. Carnegie would have heartily approved of personalization technology.

    Consumers are constantly on the move and always eager to engage with any brand that will make their lives better. Smart marketers recognize the need to combine mobile into the overall brand experience but, why are so many businesses failing to keep up?

    Behavior is changing quickly. Consumers may start an interaction on one device on the go, transition to a tablet at home or in the office, and subsequently interact in person. These consumers are expecting a seamless experience that today is fragmented. Successful marketers realize that the experience must be integrated to live up to the brand across all touch points but as marketing channels continue to proliferate, it is extremely challenging to get the full picture of what that individual customer experience looks like.

    After this webinar you'll have insights to

    •Gain new techniques to enrich the customer experience by understanding and acting on behaviors, preferences and sentiment;

    •Deliver amazing and integrated mobile experiences at every single touchpoint of your brand;

    •Engage your customers in the moment with contextually relevant interactions; and

    •Move beyond marketing campaigns to manage the overall experience along the customer journey.

    Mobile is driving new engagement models for your clients. Are you ready? Register today!

  • As more and more applications moved to the Cloud it became clear that the network needed to change to accommodate new levels of agility and automation. Over the past few years the concept of a Software-defined Network (SDN) has emerged as a way to adapt to new requirements. One of the primary ways customers are evolving their networks is by building a Software-defined Wide Area Network, or SD-WAN, to more effectively connect users to applications, particularly those in the Cloud.

    During this webinar, learn how Interroll, a global leader in providing high-quality core products for internal logistics and automation, evolved its network to improve the delivery of applications such as Microsoft 365, Sharepoint, SAP and Autodesk Computer Aided Design (CAD) by building its own SD-WAN.

    Giuseppe Genovesi, Head of Corporate IT at Interroll, will review how they went about selecting an SD-WAN overlay and the initial results they’ve seen to date. You will also find out how they avoided thousands of pounds a month in additional Multi-protocol Label Switching (MPLS) costs by using broadband without compromising performance.

    Attend this webinar to learn:
    •How the branch and remote networking landscape is evolving
    •How to connect your users to applications with greater flexibility and performance
    •Details on how Interroll dramatically reduced their WAN costs and improved SaaS application performance in days
