Sure, smartphones and tablets can be loads of fun, but with sales of these devices now rivaling those of traditional PCs, it's becoming clear that mobile technology is serious business. Specifically, it's a key component of social business.
Many enterprises are now looking to provide productive, reliable, secure mobile capabilities to their employees, customers, and partners -- wherever they are, whenever they want it, and to any of a wide range of mobile devices. Needless to say, the challenges can be formidable, so (needless to say) IBM offers a comprehensive set of solutions to help businesses harness the power of mobile. The new IBM Mobile Enterprise site can help your organization make the move into social business: Learn how IBM can help you build, connect, manage, secure, extend, and transform your mobile business, so you can increase efficiencies and get a competitive advantage. And those of you who've already made the leap can access the mobile version of the site.
Of course, that doesn't mean you can't still have fun with your mobile gizmo. I'm really digging this new monster truck app that I downloaded for my son. It's for him. Really!
