Enterprise Mobility and the IT Pendulum

Enterprise Mobility and the IT Pendulum

14% of employees said they installed productivity apps on their phones even though they knew that their company’s IT group did not allow it (according to 451 Research in this Mobility Outlook 2015 paper). And in the same way that business units didn't feel central IT could understand and meet their needs in my old company, individual users and departments often feel that no other group can keep up with their mobile needs.

Leapfrogging the Cloud: Enterprise Mobility in 2015

Leapfrogging the Cloud: Enterprise Mobility in 2015

As we get started into 2015, I’m guessing a lot of companies are considering the cloud and mobility to be two huge leapfrog changes. Between the two, I think mobility will leapfrog the cloud – pun intended. So what would that really mean?

Wooden Ships, Steamships, Spaceships – Enterprise Mobile Development Stages

Wooden Ships, Steamships, Spaceships – Enterprise Mobile Development Stages

Sometimes it’s helpful to find analogies when looking at technical trends. The move from wind-powered sailing ships to ships which provided their own power changed the world... As we look ahead to the spaceships of science fiction, we see innovations not only in propulsion, but life support, artificial gravity, and power generation that make the stories possible.

If I Built Facebook At Work: Part Three – Only human

If I Built Facebook At Work: Part Three – Only human

In my prior two blog posts, I talked about who I think Facebook At Work should target and the kinds of use cases (link) it should support. The last thing to discuss is why anyone would bother to use it. After all, humans are creatures of habit - using something new means putting in effort and changing habits.

If I Built Facebook At Work: Part Two – All about the use case.

In my last blog post, I talked about who I think of as the users and key decision makers for a business service provided by Facebook. The Facebook At Work that I’m imagining needs both end users and business stakeholders getting value from it to be successful. So now we need to talk about use cases – what should Facebook At Work actually do?

If I Built Facebook At Work: Part One – Who are you?

The recent reports from the Financial Times about a Facebook At Work offering got my product development juices flowing. For the past eight years, I’ve been building social software for the enterprise at Sitrion (www.sitrion.com), so I have a couple of thoughts on the subject :)

Sitrion ready for iOS8 and Apple Watch

With the release of iOS 8, Apple once again delivers a lot of great capability to end users. From our perspective, the release of a new mobile operating system means that we need to ensure our mobile clients work well with the new OS and that we look for opportunities to take advantage of new capabilities.

Your 1000 Enterprise Mobile Apps

Your 1000 Enterprise Mobile Apps

A few weeks ago, I was chatting with a major industry analyst who said they project that every company will have 1000 mobile apps. For a moment, that seemed unrealistic. But when you consider the number of use cases that a large enterprise might want to enable on a mobile device, the 1000 number actually sounds pretty realistic.

Workplace 2025

Because Sitrion focuses on the broad mission of making work better, we sometimes get asked to share our views on the future of work. It’s pretty clear to me what technology will need to do in order for this to be an enjoyable future.
