The Land of Oz

By  Lori Castle, Editor in Chief — September 10, 2013

Striving as you are, to stay ahead of mobility, we are ever expanding our connections and coverage—a focus on which has always been horizontal.

Unlike the back end, mobile technology is fluid, and while some challenges  are unique to certain industries—mainly those that are regulated —what you do in oil and gas can frequently apply to other field workers; what’s working in retail can often work in healthcare, for example.

It’s in that spirit of being open to ideas with which the ME team followed the road to the Dr. Oz show in New York. Working on her own projects for ME, our digital editor Stephanie Blanchard came across a pitch from the show and felt that our publisher, Dorene Rettas would be a fit for the topic of the day. Was it anything around mobile technology? No.  Would it expand our horizons in other ways? Probably.  

The point is, when it comes to anything new, you never know where the road will lead. When it comes to technology, you can always learn from another's experience—not just those in a similar business, not just the IT Director or the mysterious coder or the executive—but with mobile, everyone is a user and that means everyone is an expert of sorts.

It's a little over a month until the Mobile Enterprise Executive Summit. The event is built for these types of cross-learnings with speakers talking about what they are actually doing in their enterprises. There’s still time to register. As for the show, follow us on Twitter @Mobi_Enterprise or join our Linkedin Group to find out the air date.

Editor's Note: Show air date announced! Thursday, Sept. 26.
