Kobi Korsah I just read this really nice article in Financial Services Technology about the rise and rise of mobile banking.

Gregor Petri In 1943 former IBM president Thomas J. Watson allegedly *1 said: "I think there is a world market for maybe five computers". Will cloud computing prove Watson to be right after all? Anyone who visited a computer-, internet- or mobile-conference in recent years, is likely to have been privy to someone quoting Watson. Most often to show how predicting the future is a risky...

Robert Stroud This summer has been exceptionally hot in New York (well for NY anyway). In fact, the discussions around the water cooler are primarily about the heat wave. I have been told the beaches are packed and, well, I went to India to escape the heat!

Smartphones invade the enterprise: Will IT management need to change?
8/6/10 10:37 AM

More companies will allow end users to carry IT supported smartphones and more enterprise applications will reside on the devices, according to recent research, but will the trend challenge IT management practices?

Just how smart is your smartphone?

ABI Research this week shared data that showed more than 60% of the installed base of mobile handsets worldwide, or about 3.7 billion, will contain mobile Web browsers by 2015. And McAfee’s Digital Trust unit reported that some 75% of 150 senior IT executives intend to make internal applications available to employees on a variety of smartphones, according to a Network World article. Specifically, nearly 60% of respondents said they will mobilize more than e-mail, extending CRM, ERP and proprietary in-house applications to mobile devices.
