Workshop Mobile Web And Mobile Apps - synergies and strategies
Monday 7 March 14.00 - 17.00
iCE Amsterdam 2011 is proud to host Ajit Jaokar’s workshop Mobile Web & Mobile apps – synergies and strategies’. This workshop is America's longest running mobile web and applications event and the next edition will be held at International CTIA in Orlando on March 21st, 2011.
Mobile First, Web Second – sounds like a provocative statement, but one of the best known Venture Capitalists in the world, Fred Wilson (who has investments in Twitter, FourSquare and Zynga), blogged about this vision.
Even a few years ago, that vision would be silly, but the iPhone, Android and other platforms have changed the landscape forever. We are all accessing the web from our mobile devices. Businesses and enterprises need to adapt to that vision else they risk being out of touch with society.
However, with a proliferation of new platforms and devices, the mobile ecosystem appears increasingly more fragmented.
The Mobile Web and Mobile Apps – Synergies and Strategies workshop will provide practical insights on strategies which can be adopted to profit from Mobile Web and Mobile apps.
The workshop will discuss:
• The evolution of the Mobile Web, iPhone, Android, Blackberry(RIM), Nokia
The workshop is designed for enterprise managers, third party developers (web and mobile), content developers and creators, mobile operators, online retailers, media outlets, internet/mobile marketers, entertainment companies and content providers, investment & commercial banking, venture capitalist, ISP's, advertising agencies, billing and payment companies, brand mangers, user interface architects, consultants.
Tea and beverages will be included.
