For its second edition, the only conference devoted to tablets in the enterprise will take place in both San Francisco and New York. Executives from Box, Brainshark, DocuSign, Drchrono and MobileIron are among confirmed speakers.

NEW YORK, Jan. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- TabTimes, the reference news source about the tablet business and tablets for business, announces the second edition of its flagship business and IT conference. After its successful debut in New York last year, it will be held this year on both the East and the West coasts: TabTimes TABLET STRATEGY West will premiere in San Francisco on February 20, while TabTimes TABLET STRATEGY will be held in New York on April 30.

"Many attendees at our first conference were from the Silicon Valley and asked us to hold a similar event closer to home," says TabTimes CEO Patrick Pierra. "Expanding our one-day event to both New York and San Francisco will allow a larger number of IT and mobile decision-makers to share their tablet experiences with their peers."

Under the theme "Putting tablets to work," both events will feature experts in enterprise mobility and app development, and leaders of businesses who have deployed tablets to empower their employees.

The initial roster of confirmed speakers for TabTimes TABLET STRATEGY West includes:

  • Chris Yeh, Vice President of Platform at Box
  • Joe Gustafson, Founder & CEO of Brainshark
  • Tom Gonser, Founder & Chief Strategy Officer of DocuSign
  • Daniel Kivatinos, Co-founder & COO of Drchrono
  • renowned Silicon Valley analysts Maribel Lopez, Ben Bajarin and Rob Enderle

Conference attendees from all over the world will hear case studies of organizations having deployed iPad and other tablets. They will meet other business and IT managers involved in tablet projects within their enterprise - in sectors as diverse as healthcare, finance, sales and education. They will discuss technology, security and management issues related to tablet adoption by employees and executives, through sessions such as:

  • The challenges of managing a tablet project
  • In the field: How tablets empower mobile workers
  • At the workplace: How tablets are replacing the office PC
  • The next step in BYOD: How can companies reap bigger rewards and fewer setbacks

The TabTimes TABLET STRATEGY conference series has been designed for IT and business executives who are at the forefront of the tablet revolution in the enterprise. The first 50 tablet project managers from non-IT organizations who register for each event will attend free of charge, thanks to the events sponsors. Confirmed sponsors for TabTimes TABLET STRATEGY West currently include FileMaker, Apperian, EFI and Vernon.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain.
A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, whic...
