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.
  • Many organizations have struggled with BYOD programs due to MDM/MAM deployment challenges, user privacy concerns, and low adoption. This is causing some to question BYOD altogether. Fortunately, data shows that there is huge demand for BYOD, but such programs must meet employee needs in addition to IT needs.

    In this webinar, you'll learn where existing BYOD programs have fallen short, and how the next-generation of mobile security products will ensure secure, broad adoption of BYOD.

  • Virtual desktops are being widely adopted as a cost-effective way of providing users access to enterprise applications. Performance of these desktops and the scalability of virtual desktop deployments are a key to the success of these IT initiatives.

    In this webinar, Jeff Stokes, Senior Content Developer, Microsoft and Bala Vaidhinathan, CTO, eG Innovations will focus on Windows virtual desktops and VDI image creation best practices that you can adopt to get the most of your virtual desktop infrastructure investments. Some topics will include:

    - Best practices for building images in persistent and non-persistent virtual desktop deployments
    - Tools for building optimized virtual desktop images
    - Optimization techniques for Windows 7, 8 and 10 workloads
    - Performance impact of changes and how to measure them at the desktop level
  • Much like a great UI is designed for optimal user experience, a great API is designed for optimal consumer experience. But what defines great consumer experience? And how can you deliver it consistently in every API you develop? In this session we’ll cover these topics in-depth and demonstrate best practices for developing great APIs through collaboration.

    You will learn:
    - Elements that define a great API consumer experience
    - How to consistently drive API design in every API developed
    - Best practices for API strategy
    - API design pitfalls to avoid
  • Data preparation is occasionally referred to as data plumbing, suggesting that it is dirty grunge work that is an unglamorous necessity. We will see how this point of view misses entirely the discovery potential, value, and “thrill of the chase” that data preparation can offer. Data prep includes the all important first step in any analytics project: “Know Thy Data” (which is one of the fundamental principles of data science). We discuss data profiling, data transformations and normalization, feature selection and engineering, and more data prep approaches that empower you to begin learning from your data right out of the “starting gate” on your analytics project. Learning from Data (i.e., data science) doesn’t begin after data prep, but right from the start.

  • MDM and MAM solutions for BYOD create a poor user experience. In this video, watch 5-year old Brooke onboard an iPad to Bitglass Mobile Security in seconds, with one step. Easy Peasy!!
  • Watch this short webinar to get an overview of Windows 10, which converges traditional Windows operating systems to allow for security and management through a single, unified platform across mobile, desktop, and embedded products. This unified platform also allows programmers to develop and manage universal apps that can be written once and run on any form factor and screen size. As a result, the application experience will now be the same on a Windows PC, phone, or tablet, which is a huge evolutionary step for Windows in the enterprise.
  • Office 365 is Microsoft’s cloud-based productivity suite. Office 365 is central to Microsoft’s strategy as the company evolves into a mobile-first, cloud-first software and solutions provider. Office 365 is also central to the productivity strategy of many MobileIron customers since their employees will increasingly use Office on mobile devices instead of traditional PCs. Therefore the ability to secure and deploy Office 365 on mobile devices using MobileIron is a common requirement. This webinar will outline the MobileIron security framework for mobile apps and how it can be used to secure and deploy Office 365 on mobile devices.
  • 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.

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!

    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

    How do you get the best mobile users? That's a question thousands of app publishers ask themselves daily. We have the answer.

    If you build the best app in the world, it's going to be wasted if no one ever finds it. But there is a virtual sea of mobile apps out there, each clamoring for the attention of those top users -- the ones with the great attention spans or the deepest pockets. Most consumers will only tolerate so many apps on their phone -- that means yours has to really count. Mobile ad spending doubled last year and top apps are spending anywhere from $4 to $30 per user for fresh users.

    VB Insight took a hard look at mobile user acquisition -- the major players, the best strategies and the top user acquisition companies. We surveyed 731 mobile developers with over a billion users among them. We also studied data summarizing the results of almost 14 billion mobile ads, and talked to leading user acquisition experts. And now John Koetsier is going to give a first look at the data -- for free. We'll also talk to two experts in the field of mobile user acquisition and get their real world take on a very tempestuous arena. Your mobile strategy can't afford to wait another day -- don't miss this vital information and free interactive web roundtable.

    This webinar will be based on John Koetsier’s VB Insight report "Mobile User Acquisition: How top publishers get the best users for less money", which was published Sept 10, 2015. This is independent analysis and vendors did not have any influence on the outcome of this report.

  • Is there any device more personal than the mobile phones consumers keep glued to themselves 24/7? It tracks where they go, when they go, and often, how long they stay there. They visit city parks and day care centers regularly? Chances are they’re a mom (or dad). They go to concert venues and trendy cafés? While they may or may not be a hipster, they’re probably a millennial.

    Not to mention all that content on their phones. The apps they download. The podcasts they listen to. The searches they perform.

    Personalization takes a giant leap when applied to mobile, and mobile marketing automation is essential to any marketer trying to reap its sweet rewards. It’s the only way to action all that data and turn it into meaningful mobile interactions.

    But what exactly do you need? And what’s the full potential? After all, you can’t act on what you don’t know.

    Consumer behavior is evolving. As a consequence, so must marketing. The heart of marketing is about making a connection with people, engaging with them, and creating mutually beneficial value. Traditional and even digital media have been used to broadcast messages to mass audiences, but today’s consumer expects to be treated as an individual. While brands are investing heavily in paid and social media, they risk building communities on platforms they don’t control. Successful brands are using owned communication channels -- push, email and in-app messaging -- as a bridge between paid marketing and high value, long term customers.

    In this session, Michael Becker, Managing Partner at mCordis, and Doug Roberge, Strategic Services Consultant at Kahuna, will explain how paid and owned communications can be used in tandem to connect, communicate, and generate commerce from consumers on an individual basis by first learning to understand and engage them, then automating and optimizing the process to scale.

    In this webinar, you’ll:
    * Balance the advertising (paid) and direct (owned) marketing in your overall marketing mix
    * Enhance your paid and owned media and connect with individuals
    * Learn how communication automation reduces engagement friction and opens the door for a rich dialog
    * Anticipate the consumer demand for individualized messages and how that impacts engagement and commerce
