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.

The Questions

These questions will shape the discussion:

  1. Name the biggest challenges to securing mobile data.
  2. What can companies do to guard against information sprawl?
  3. Should CIOs try to prevent the use of consumer apps for business purposes?
  4. Some of the most commonly used apps, e.g. Dropbox + Evernote, are frequently blacklisted by companies. Are they more useful or risky?
  5. What capabilities do employees need that mobile solutions don't yet offer?
  6. In what ways does mobile access affect the tenor and length of the average work day?
  7. (Bonus Question) How do organizations understand the state of mobile use and how does the answer change their mobile strategy?
