Red Pill Development: Asymmetric Modernization - The Quest for WMDs
Peter Presnell - CEO, Red Pill Development
Your Notes applications have served your organization well over the past 20 years. You have recruited well and the numbers have steadily grown. You now control a fleet of 100, 1,000 or even 10,000 applications that are working each day to keep your company safe from the ravaging hordes of your competitors. But are those applications as modern as they now need to be? Is the platform under attack from newer technologies? Are you seeking a WMD (Wholesale Mobile Deployment) strategy that will allow all your Notes application to integrate with the latest weapon of choice by many businesses, the mobile device? In this session we will outline a new approach to modernization that exploits the capabilities of XPages and mobile controls to allow the information already available in your Notes applications to be made accessible to your entire workforce from their mobile device. Mobilization delivered at the speed of a bullet.
