It's always good to visit with clients and "last week in mobile", I had the opportunity to brief over 100 clients at our SOA Architect Summit events in (links to the agendas here -->) Minneapolis, MN and Raleigh/Durham, NC specifically on mobile as it pertains to SOA. I conducted an informal poll at these events and discovered this:
- 25% of the SOA-interested attendees already had mobile apps deployed, but
- 100% of the mobile development projects used an "Agile" approach
While I didn't have time to qualify how each attendee interpreted "Agile", it's safe to say there's an "Agile-THINK" that surrounds businesses' mobile projects as well as projects that need to deliver results quickly. But for those looking to grow skills in this area, have you seen the Agile Learning Circle? What a great way to collaborate (IBMers, clients and business partners) on your Agile learning!
At these SOA Architect Summit events, IBM engaged a "Graphic Recording" company www.imagethink.net to "reverse engineer" the speaker's (not the slides) presentation to produce, well, some really cool images! I liked it so much, that I tweeted one photo and am uploading another one on mobile here: (I didn't verify the image quality, my apologies, but it should be uploaded soon to the event links at the top). These are the results of two different "graphic recording artists":
