    • Sweeping Changes (Gartner) • Rise of tablets ”By 2013, 80% of businesses will support a workforce using tablets” • BYOD ”By 2014, 90% of organizations will support corporate applications on personal devices” • Enterprise stores ”By 2015, 60% of organizations will use private app stores to deliver business apps on media tablets and smartphones” • Rise of social ”By 2015, 10% of your online ”friends” will be nonhuman” 12/11/2012 Copyright Appear, 2012 5
    • 2nd Generation Mobility • Lower TCO – Cloud vs On-site installations – One mobile enterprise platform vs Multiple siloed mobile solutions – Control – easier to deploy/publish and control apps • Improved user adoption – BYOD - Device Independence • Efficient and Reactive Organisation – Tighter, real-time integration between people, systems – Real-time communications, visibility and collaboration is a major game changer • Improved team collaboration – Shared situational awareness 12/11/2012 Copyright Appear, 2012 6
    • 2nd Generation – more mobility challenges Connecting Employees in Real Time to Corporate BackEnd Systems Managing a Complex Fleet of Enterprise Mobile Devices Developing Ergonomic Applications that Have Real User Impact 12/11/2012 Copyright Appear, 2012 7
    • 2nd Generation – more mobility challenges • Need to ensure all the key mobile devices are supported (iOS, Android and Windows Mobile) • Must not impact security, increase complexity. • Cross platform support based on hybrid technology • Cloud-based distributed architecture provides a scaleable solution • Must integrate with third party legacy systems • Context-aware data based on the situation of the user (context engine) 12/11/2012 Copyright Appear, 2012 8
    • Context-aware Apps • Efficient dispatch of resources based on – – – – Role Availability Location Skillset • Reducing information overload – Alerts and updates based on context – No need to surf, scroll and search • Allowing faster data entry – Device can pre-enter information based on context – No need to input information that your device already has! 12/11/2012 Copyright Appear, 2012 9 9
    • Connecting: Assets, People, Customers Operations Management Enterprise Systems Employees & Assets Customer service Asset Social Customers e.g. Passengers Consumers 12/11/2012 Copyright Appear, 2012 10
    • Mobility Roadmap ? More that 50% of the application code is spent connecting to the backend web service, retrieving the data and managing the local device database 12/11/2012 Copyright Appear, 2012 11
    • Mobility Roadmap MEAP More that 50% of the application code is spent connecting to the backend web service, retrieving the data and managing the local device database Why not do it ONCE and for all? 12/11/2012 Copyright Appear, 2012 12
    • 1st and 2nd Generation Comparison First Generation Application 12/11/2012 BYOD Multiple OS & form factors Cross Platform All behind the firewall, on-site enterprise implementations Hybrid Cloud Model Cloud based with secure back office (e.g. ERP) access Cloud Collaborative Apps, Information mash-up Static data Dynamic, Context-aware data ”Clunky” user interfaces Network Dedicated Windows Mobile Devices Application ”Silos” Device Second Generation Intuitive, Ergonomic UI Copyright Appear, 2012 Context 13

    • The 3 Key Pillars of Mobility • Cross Platform – Efficient support of heterogeneous devices and multiple operating systems – Enables “BYOD” (Bring Your Own Device) • Cloud Based – Cost-effective deployment and usage model based on cloud infrastructure – Easy back-end integration via secure gateway and connector libraries • Context Aware – Ergonomic, user friendly applications that respond to changes in user context – Intelligent business workflows that react in real time to resource location and availability 12/11/2012 Copyright Appear, 2012 17
    • Cross Platform • The Hybrid model: Native + Web – Native code: smart data caching (offline use) – Native code: access to hardware (barcode reader, camera, etc.) – Web/HTML5: write once, run on multiple devices and OS – Web/HTML5: requires less specialized developers 12/11/2012 Copyright Appear, 2012 18
    • Cloud • The Cloud advantage – No upfront hardware or software cost – Growth based cost models IT Mgr Project Manager Design Create ERP DB – Can support: • Application development Bank • Testing Diagnostics • Deployment • Security • Scalability Notification Servers Support • Storage • IT Operations Integration Devices M2M 12/11/2012 Copyright Appear, 2012 19
    • Mobility Projects – Key Questions • Vertical end to end solution or horizontal mobility platform? • Rugged handheld/tablet or consumer smartphone? • Android, iOS, Windows Mobile or other devices? • Always online or offline storage/functionality • COTS (off-the-shelf software) or custom solution? • Waterfall approach or agile development? 12/11/2012 Copyright Appear, 2012 20
