Companies of all sizes are starting to add mobile applications to their corporate strategies, and finding the best tools and applications available to build those enterprise apps is critical to solving the management and infrastructure issues they are facing.
As these applications continue to proliferate throughout the enterprise, Cisco is looking into ways to make the network more relevant to the mobile application developer community. After all, the concept of creating solutions to address needs has been with Cisco since its inception – an integral part of our DNA is creating long-lasting partnerships with our customers, working with them to identify their needs and provide solutions that support success.
In an effort to highlight some of the best enterprise mobile apps available today, Cisco is teaming up with Mobile Monday America, an open community platform of mobile industry visionaries, developers and influential individuals. Mobile Monday fosters brand neutral cooperation and cross-border peer-to-peer business opportunities through live networking events to demo products, share ideas and discuss trends from both local and global markets. With locations in over 115 cities worldwide, Mobile Monday is the world’s largest mobile industry community, dedicated to “Bringing the Mobile Community Together.”
Cisco is the exclusive sponsor for a five-city US tour of Mobile Monday Enterprise App Demo Night events, which will showcase how companies are building mobile enterprise apps, as well as the tools available to the developers building them.
The current tour kicked off in Austin on April 4th, followed by San Francisco and Boston on April 11th, Seattle on April 18th and New York City on April 25th. Registration is open now for events in each city, and additional event information and a list of presenters is available here.
This month at Mobile Monday, Location Based Services applications using Cisco Aironet Wireless Access Points and Mobility Services Engine will be demonstrated, giving developers in attendance a better idea of how location based services can be integrated into their enterprise applications. This is especially beneficial to mobile application developers, as it allows them to integrate an indoor GPS using Cisco’s wireless network.
