I am learning a great deal from some of the most experienced mobility gurus in the business this week at the M6 MobilityXchange in San Diego. Yesterday we discussed all kinds of new developments taking place in enterprise mobility. Here are some of my notes from day #1.
- We are entering the age of wisdom - the result of many mistakes in enterprise mobility
- Maribel Lopez identified three phases of enterprise mobility, 1) Extend capabilities, 2) Enhance capabilities and 3) Transform your business
- Question to ask, "What is now possible with mobile devices that was not possible without?"
- Continued discussions around mobile devices with dual persona. Select work persona, and all your apps and screens are configured for work. Select personal persona and all your apps and screens are configured for personal use. These could have different security settings, etc.
- Mobility is about creating "right time" experiences.
- Question to ask, "Why are my customers connecting at this moment in time?" What is happening in their lives at this moment. How can we enhance and support that moment. Think landing at an airport and turning on your smartphone. What may the customer want to know at this moment of time? Where is Starbucks? Where is my connecting gate? Where is my airline lounge? Where is baggage claim? Don't wait for the user to select, make some predictions.
- American Airlines reported there are now more check-ins on mobile devices than on the web.
- The top mobile app users at American Airlines correspond to the top customers. Invest in these customers. They deliver the profits.
- Airlines are testing iBeacon/Beacon technology to help raise the quality of care for their best customers - read more about iBeacons here.
- Ford has developed the Ford Open XC open standard for interfacing with their cars' data. I can image service companies offering to monitor all of your car's data and servicing your vehicle based upon the data received.
- Heard a new mobile security phrase today that made me laugh sophomorically, "sniffing your packets" hehehehe.
Stay tuned for Day #2.

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walked through how Octob...
