MWC 2014 sessions capture key strategies for enterprise mobile applications

Mobility presents a significant opportunity for enterprise IT to deliver more value to the business through solutions, data, and applications, but it also introduces much greater complexity. You need forward-looking strategies and specialized tools and skills to develop enterprise mobile apps that support BYOD and the expectations of your users—while properly managing and securing the data.


To bring you some great ideas on using mobility to transform your business, we’ve gathered links to videos of eight sessions HP presented at Mobile World Congress 2014 in Barcelona.

Backstage with HP Software at RSA Conference 2014, Mobile World Congress, more!


We often find great content on other HP online destinations, and from time to time, we share them with you right here. In the past few weeks, we’ve seen some great coverage of Mobile Word Congress, the RSA Conference 2014 and some great thought leadership from the HP Security Products blog.


If you couldn’t get to San Francisco for the RSA Conference 2014 late last month, fear not—Backstage with HP Software brings you highlights with plenty of video coverage from the event. We suggest you start with “Stop Looking for the Silver Bullet: Start Thinking Like a Bad Guy,” in which HP's Art Gilliland, SVP and GM for Enterprise Security Products, summarizes his keynote speech from the conference (the full keynote is here). As you might recall, we featured a post about Art here recently, and—if you haven’t yet—you’ll want to check his interviews on the Discover Performance site: “Staying ahead of the cybercriminals” and “Shift to protecting what matters most.”
