Scott explains BP Mobility: their demo connecting business processes with mobile apps, and how Worklight has simplified deployment and security.
As Scott says, “Mobile changes the way you look at business processes and makes possible interactions that just weren’t possible previously.”
In this series of interviews with developerWorks Editor Tom Young, Vijay Dheap, Global Product Manager for Mobile Solutions at IBM discusses the unique challenges of securing mobile devices and the steps companies should take as we move into the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) era.
Judith Hurwitz, President and CEO of Hurwitz and Associates, which provides consulting on the business value of emerging computing technologies, gives some of her predictions and thoughts on new technologies.

The Radware Alteon Virtual Appliance for the IBM PureSystems platform allows businesses to standardize their application deployment and add Application Delivery Controller (ADC) services over the same IBM PureSystems used for the other application components. Radware's Alteon Virtual Appliance (Alteon VA) for the IBM PureSystems is a fully-functional ADC solution which provides an application-aware approach to deploying and managing applications.
In this video, Radware's Travis Volk explains the benefits.
Vanessa Molho, General Manager Software Sales and Channel Partner Sales at Trident Services, explains the value of the zOSEM tool, which enables customers to reduce and control ISV costs and eliminate exit migration issues on mainframes. This creates a mainframe administration environment which is more user friendly and easier to manage.
In this Lightening Talk demo during the Impact 2012 Unconference, the Worklight team build a running native mobile app using Worklight in around 5 minutes.
In this demo you will see the rich page editor which allows you to build an app using pre-configured Dojo widgets. You'll see how you can drop icons into a page, create tabs with sub-views and preview the app in a mobile browser simulator, all without the need to write any device code: leaving you free to focus on layout and source application logic.
Forefront worked with Cast Iron to create a solution for Ipswitch Inc that helped them bridge processes across their CRM and ERP applications. Mike Mulryan, Director of IT at Ipswitch and Anne Marie Berger, Managing Partner at Forefront explain why they picked Cast Iron and what the major benefits have been.
Sugalya Murugesan, Market Development Analyst at ZSL Inc, explains how they have used Cast Iron to bridge applications, whether they be on-premise or in the cloud. For instance, for one major retailer, ZSL developed a solution that tied the CRM platform to the inventory system, so as soon as a sale occurs, the inventory database is updated.
More recently, ZSL have been developing applications on Worklight that allow enterprise developers to create one code base which is distributed across multiple mobile platforms, whether they be iOS, Android, Blackberry, etc.
Charley Rich, VP Marketing and Product Management at Nastel, explains how they monitor applications, from the web to the mainframe to the cloud. In this demo, you'll see there is a performance bottleneck between System Z, DB2 and the MQ transactions.
Using Nastel solutions, you can view all the transactions (eg. payments) and zero-in on the particular transactions executed, analyzing volumes of transactions and transaction traces.
In this presentation, Gene Fiorina from the WebSphere Education team explains the importance of education in implementation of WebSphere solutions: if you add 9 hours of training to your project plan, you can go from a 50% to an 80% success rate, so it is well worth the investment.
He also shows latest education delivery mechanism, including an iPad app.
Peter Santoro from IBM's ISSW group explains to Chris Rothemich how they support WebSphere customers and business partners, helping them learn about technology and provide services to help clients build better solutions.
Rob Covey from Autodesk explains how they can now offer cloud-based Product Lifecycle Management to augment their 2D and 3D design solutions. The cloud-based approach allows them to reduce bottlenecks in deployment of PLM systems. This means you can be up and running in minutes to days, rather than months to years. This also opens up PLM access to anyone in the company.
