Four Weeks to MEES

By Stephanie Blanchard, Digital Editor & Lori Castle, Editor in Chief — October 03, 2013

Mobility is always moving — and fast. Just six years ago, the iPhone debuted, causing business to change forever. Technology continues to rapidly evolve and shows no signs of slowing down, so how can the enterprise keep up?

Though many organizations have moved beyond just access to information, the ways to use technology to create strategic, competitive advantages are still being discovered. Mobility is a way to increase revenue, workforce efficiency and productivity and communicate in real time to both business partners and clients.

What is your company doing? Find out how it compares with other mobile leaders.

For the past eight years, Mobile Enterprise hosts an annual Mobile Enterprise Executive Summit (MEES) to bring together senior-level professionals from across all verticals. The goal is to share ideas among those who strive to achieve excellence, which can enable every organization —no matter what the sector— to take business to the next level.

This year’s Summit is fast approaching: November 4 - 6, 2013 at the Four Seasons in Dallas, TX.

The theme is Mobility Roadmap: Today's Initiatives, Tomorrow's Strategies— in parallel with the fast pace of change and what comes next —the agenda will offer current, real-world examples, while looking forward to the future. To that end, we have a very exciting lineup of top-notch speakers.


Neil Garner, Assistant Director, Mobile Technology Solutions, Coca-Cola Refreshments, is a mobile leader. He will offer perspective on where you should be now and provide steps for your mobile future.

Vijay Sammeta, Chief Information Officer, City of San Jose (CA) is a visionary. In charge of the technology for the 10th largest city in the United States - arguably the tech capital of the world, Sammeta is implementing a modern plan that not only mobilizes workers, but enables citizens and the businesses which the city serves.

Patrick O'Keeffe, Vice President - Airline Operations Technology, American Airlines, will demonstrate how enterprise mobility creates customer satisfaction.

On the Dais

Gary Hill, CTO, Georgia-Pacific, and Shawn Kennedy, Mobility Architect, Georgia-Pacific. Both will discuss how business issues are enabled by mobile initiatives.

Chris Hazelton, Research Director, Mobile & Wireless, 451 Research will lead a panel to deliver a detailed first look at the results of the fourth annual exclusive and forward-looking Outlook on Mobility research report from Mobile Enterprise and Yankee Group, a division of 451 Group.

Other sessions are planned throughout the event, to showcase those companies who are getting it right, and offer first-hand accounts of mobile initiatives and results. Notable wins, and further examples of those organizations leading the way, will be recognized during the 2013 Mobilizer Awards session.

The Summit is purposely a friendly, low-key environment where conversations among peers can lead to inspiration back at the office.  There is ample time to make new connections and you can play golf on a leading course with fellow leaders. The Four Seasons Dallas is home to the PGA’s Byron Nelson Championship.

Who should attend? Senior-level technology and operations executives who are charged with purchasing, deploying and managing mobility and the mobile workforce in their enterprises. Register here.
