EACD Regional Debate in Hungary

Thursday 12 March 2015

We are happy to invite you to our next Regional Debate in Hungary which will take place on 12th March 2015 at 10:00am in Budapest. The topic of the event will be "Mobile now! Do you already leverage the power of mobile for your employees and connect with your customers?
Mobile is primary and essential to all business and is paving the way to growth and innovation — the rise of BYOD and app development is evident. But the numbers are pointing to something even stronger: Mobility as a mainstay in business. It is opening the access to the new markets and it is expected that during next couple of years it will significantly change the buying behaviours of the majority of the clients.  That is why it is so important for organizations to develop an enterprise mobile strategy and get on top of app development — creating their own apps and investing in long-term strategy — because if they don’t, someone else’s business will. IBM MobileFirst strategy offers the painless transformation to the mobile relationship with clients, other businesses and employees by leveraging all current business critical services and their connectivity with the new technologies.
We are happy to announce our speaker: Rainer Pirker, Executive, CEE - Central and Eastern Europe, IBM MobileFirst Business Unit.
