    For Georgia-Pacific, with a mobile organization that includes both manufacturing and sales (not to mention corporate functions), it’s not about the next “shiny” toy. Mobile devices change every few months, but the company does not let that dictate its mobile strategy. In fact, it’s the other way around. First, they identify the business issues and opportunities that could be optimized and enabled by mobile initiatives. In this session you’ll hear about Georgia-Pacific’s approach to mobility, where the value dictates the use case and mobile strategy comes before the device.
