It's no secret that with each passing day, businesses are becoming increasingly mobile. From BYOD to remote working, the mobile invasion is upon us. So what tools will ensure a secure and reliable connection, what challenges does the mobile enterprise face and where do we go from here? Find out at this month's Tweet Jam.
The Mobile Enterprise: Tools, Practices, Strategies
Be sure to join us this Thursday, April 24 as we discuss the Mobile Enterprise — the pros, the cons and everything in between. The conversation kicks off at 9 am PT/ 12 pm ET / 1600 GMT.
These questions will shape the discussion:
- Name the biggest challenges to securing mobile data.
- What can companies do to guard against information sprawl?
- Should CIOs try to prevent the use of consumer apps for business purposes?
- Some of the most commonly used apps, e.g. Dropbox + Evernote, are frequently blacklisted by companies. Are they more useful or risky?
- What capabilities do employees need that mobile solutions don't yet offer?
- In what ways does mobile access affect the tenor and length of the average work day?
- (Bonus Question) How do organizations understand the state of mobile use and how does the answer change their mobile strategy?

A Few Things to Keep in Mind
- Introduce yourself with your first #socbizchat tweet. Include your name, job title and organization you work for.
- Be sure to include the #socbizchat hashtag in all responses. Use A1 for answers to question one, A2, for question two, etc. For example, "@bigbird A2 First step should be having a strong mobile policy in place #socbizchat"
- Please don't pitch products or services — stay knowledge focused.
- Keep the discussion professional, but informal.
- Remember that this is a public chat — be thoughtful.
