Go to CIO Forum 2008 ...

Executives, managers and operational personnel in enterprises are finding that due to the combination of increased enterprise security requirements and increasing number of devices which they must use including the desktop, laptop, tablet, PDA, and, cell phone to stay connected to perform their jobs, mobile coverage today is far from seamless. With all the hype about convergence, the increased complexity of networks and devices in the last several years continues to defy seamlessness. This forum will bring together CIOs and CTOs from Fortune 500 companies of diverse industry segments to share how they are achieving Seamless Mobility in their organizations. This is the 4th in a series of thought leadership CIO Forums organized at UCLA.
