So when December hits, I can't think of a better place to be than the wonderful city of Barcelona with the sea breeze coming off the Mediterranean keeping me going. That's why I'm so happy that we are returning to Barcelona for HP Discover again this year, and it's looking to be bigger and better than ever. I've been working with the Mobility team on a lot of the planning and there is just some great stuff going on in this space. Be sure to check out all my sessions and everything HP has to offer in the mobile space!

Enterprise mobile apps…what’s in store for the future?

Now more than ever, enterprises are feeling the push to scrap their legacy data systems in lieu of a mobile, cloud-based futureof.jpgstorage system. With the growing number of BYOD work policies, enterprises must cater to the needs of their employees and customers—instead of the other way around.

 

The pervasiveness of BYOD in the workplace--and outside of the workplace--has also spawned a move toward BYOA (Bring your own Application). With industry trends headed toward universal data access and app preference, best practice trends have surfaced to ensure that enterprises are keeping up and are ready for the future. These trends will alter the way employees perform their duties, where data and apps are stored, and how productivity and collaboration are measured.
