iPhone Developer Summit: iPhone Apps VS. ROI

ROI (Return on Investment) has never had such a major importance, especially in these economic crisis days. In many ways a well delivered ROI analysis is the most effective part of the whole pitching art, whether you are pitching for a web development, desktop application or the increasing popular mobile iPhone / iPod Touch projects. Since I am very involved in mobile solutions, in this case iPhone / iPod Touch Applications, we are always trying to create something that will make it, an offer that cannot be refused. We all know, that ROI is a very important aspect on any kind of project, although here I would like to point out, that, these days we need to be even more flexible and scalable, so that the client has a clear way of looking at the whole solution with complete confidence about its success. With an iPhone App’s, it is slightly easier because of the App Store... (more)

SYS-CON's iPhone Developer Summit Day One ROCKS

Today was the first day of SYS-CON's iPhone Developer Summit, in the Roosevelt Hote in NYC... and I'm pleased to report that the first day ROCKED!

The iPhone Is Here To Stay!

I thought it fitting to make a bold statement today as this is my 100th article on Ulitzer... The iPhone is here to stay! Now the follow-on statement is more thought provoking... What's an Enterprise to do about it? If you have followed my previous articles you will know that I'm a devoted advocate of mobility, especially in particular Apple's iPhone and I know that this device is now making its way into businesses, via the mass adoption in the consumer market. I have, in the past few months, written on various subjects such as the integration of Corporate Email, Security & Management of mobile devices, as well as Enterprise adoption and the necessity for businesses to address these previous points to safeguard their mobile devices containing corporate assets. I'm excited that Sybase has now created a very cool interactive brochure, which is very much from the same... (more)

Managing and Securing Enterprise Mobility?

Following on from my articles on thoughts and findings of Enterprise Mobility, I have decided to delve again into the challenging areas of Management & Security. Both Management & Security are inter-dependant and if not in place, your valuable enterprise mobile asset is vulnerable as soon at it is goes 'on-the-road'. I use the wording valuable, not really due to the cost of the actual device, as that is minor when compared to the corporate applications and data deployed on the device itself. Think.. What damage could be done if that device & the data within got into the hands of your competition of even worse, someone malicious? Mobile Device Management to anyone serious should mean SECURE management of DATA, DEVICE and APPLICATIONS.   So what should be done? Firstly for Enterprise Mobility you probably want Cross-Platform device support and a Central Configuratio... (more)
