India, 21st September 2007
Amongst the fanfare of consumer-centric mobile services and applications, enterprise mobility is emerging as a key segment in the mobility space. Dataquest, a leading publication in the arena of IT and emerging technologies, organized a CIO summit on measuring productivity in mobile enterprise being formulated by the CIOs of manufacturing and service enterprises.
The summit was organized in three cities — Bangalore (12th September), Mumbai (18th September) and New Delhi (20th September). Mr. Vijay Shukla, Country Head, ValueFirst was the keynote speaker in the conference. The key participants in the summit were players like Reliance, KPMG, CheckPoint Solutions and ValueFirst representing different stakeholders in the enterprise mobility value chain. A few key points that emerged in the discussion were that enterprises are looking for low TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) and high ROI (Return on Investment) solutions to mobile enable their business processes. The PDA-centric solutions have not got the approval of CIOs even in the western world because of high initial investment.
