Modern Mobility sure is going out with a bang. Our January issue, the magazine’s last in its current form, highlights enterprise mobility projects that delivered game-changing benefits to four businesses and their end users.
Please join me in congratulating the winners of the Modern Mobility Innovation Awards:
- Bell and Howell’s use of Kinvey’s mobile backend as a service, which brought the power of a back-end SAP system to a new app for the company’s field service technicians.
- General Electric’s deployment of Couchbase Mobile, a database that brought offline capabilities to GE’s app development and analytics platform, Predix.
- Southwest Airlines’ use of Stratix managed services to deploy Apple iPad minis, preinstalled with an in-flight app, to its 15,000 flight attendants.
- Telstra’s implementation of Kony’s development platform, which helped the Australian telecom provider give employees mobile access to its human resources system.
These award-winning projects demonstrate how organizations that embrace mobility and take advantage of cutting-edge technology can transform their processes and achieve new levels of productivity. Since its inception two years ago, Modern Mobility has strived to offer the insights and analysis that all organizations need to do the same.
In March, we’ll return with a new magazine, Access, that expands upon this vision. Mobility is a major part of the modern workforce, but it’s not the only part. Windows 10, workspaces, and more social and collaborative apps will also change how users do their jobs. Access will provide in-depth information and advice to help business leaders, IT professionals and developers navigate these end-user computing waters.
Thank you for reading Modern Mobility. I hope you’ll join us as we start a new chapter.
