Apperian just officially launched their Enterprise App Services Environment, dubbed "EASE". The Company says they are getting out of the app development biz and instead "helping enterprise developers build secure mobile applications that improve company productivity". Apperian claims that EASE... Continue reading

Last time I posted something here was to tell you that we had 300 members. Well, now we're close to 800! With that in mind, we've gone through a major site redesign to make things more intuitive for you. So... Continue reading

For those of you who know me, or read this blog with any level of consistency, you know there's no way I could have the last blog entry on this site not have a provocative title. So yes, I am... Continue reading

You read this correctly...and notice how I did not write this yesterday where it could have been misconstrued as an April Fool's Day joke. I am writing a tiny little post today to inform you that this is the second... Continue reading

The rain has finally stopped in Boston. In March alone, we have gotten about half the rain fall we typically get the entire year. I was actually watching the nightly news from France 2 (a good way for me to... Continue reading

Thanks for the kind words Rajesh. If mobility is foundational to an organization, then I think back to what my father used to tell me when he taught me about carpentry. Measure twice, cut once. Philippe
Don't get me started on Palm :-(
Ahmed, Totally agreed. In fact, I'll go so far as to say that mobilizing apps is a perfect opportunity to go through a business process reengineering (BPR) exercise. Cheers, Philippe
Sandeep, RE: your comment on Palm and webOS: Betamax vs. VHS MacOS vs. Windows (c. 1994) Don't confuse quality with popularity ;-) Philippe
Please note, the original title of this post was going to be "Should Windows Phone Learn From Android?" but I chose otherwise ;-) The Interweb has a fascinating article today on News.com penned by Matt Asay on the topic of... Continue reading

Another rainy day here in Boston today. I can't complain really, it's far better than snow. While having my morning coffee I was thinking about an article I read earlier this morning over at Information Week, called "Global CIO: Will... Continue reading

Ah yes....a continued dearth of posts on this site. No need for excuses, let's cut to the chase. I read this morning a very interesting post over at Information Week called "Palm's Survival At Stake." That's certainly an intriguing title... Continue reading

I start today's entry thinking of Samuel Clemens, a.k.a. Mark Twain with his famous quote: "Rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated." Almost two weeks with not a peep or barely a tweet from me. Even on vacation, this... Continue reading

As Mobile World Congress continues in Barcelona, the world of mobility is all aflutter regarding Microsoft's announcement of Windows Phone 7 Series (I am still struggling with that name). Fresh off the heels of that news, we have coming today... Continue reading

Yup....Things just got interesting all over again. I just love this space.
So for what it's worth, I asked Microsoft whether they were steering away from the enterprise. They said absolutely not and that more details would be made available at MIX. I guess we'll just have to wait and see. Frankly, given Microsoft's corporate DNA, I am pretty confident they will "take care" of the white collar workforce. I just have no idea how they will deal with the gray/blue collar environment. Philippe

Today has been one heck of a busy day. If you read this blog, you know that today, Microsoft officially announced Windows Phone 7 Series (gotta love Redmondian branding), its brand new mobile platform geared to getting it back "in... Continue reading

Now are you talking about outsourcing or a managed service? They are two very different things.
Thanks Ric - but what do you think. Is this a phenomenon you are seeing play out?
Well, to your last point, while I haven't seen WinMo 7 yet to speculate, I certainly hope you're wrong! To your earlier point re: Android, it's got very low penetration right now. Sure, companies are looking at it, but TBD if it can really get a foothold in the enterprise market.

It's snowing today in Boston. This year has actually been rather easy in terms of snowfall in New England this year...certainly unlike what other cities like Washington D.C. have been dealing with in the last 10 days (I understand they... Continue reading
