Sandy Carter, General Manager of IBM Ecosystem Development interviewed Matt Smith, CTO of Leverage Mobile at IBM Impact 2014 in Las Vegas, Nevada and discussed a number of trends affecting mobility for the modern enterprise. See the interview here. The interview came on the heels of the debut of Leverage Mobile’s new mobility service at IBM Impact that allows organizations of all types to deploy mobile applications fully integrated into backend systems along with EMM (Enterprise Mobility Management) software all bundled as a service.
During the interview, Mr. Smith discussed several key topics including mobile strategy, delivering mobility via the cloud, the need for a platform vs. pushing out “one-off” apps, and the value of IBM software.
“Whether you’re a Fortune 100 company or a small business trying to stay competitive, mobility can be hard” said Matt Smith, Leverage Mobile CTO. “What it’s going to cost? How long will it take? Who’s going to take care of all this? The questions for IT departments seem endless. Leverage Mobile makes it easy because the application is already built, it works on every conceivable device, and it will integrate with most existing backend systems – it even includes Mobile Device Management. So business of all types and sizes can deploy it in the cloud with no upfront development costs – they simply they pay as they go.”
