Workers increasingly need to track important business activities while on the go and initiatives like ‘Bring Your Own Device’ (BYOD) are helping by making devices to the mobile workforce. But the smaller tablet and smartphone form factors dictate a new user experience. Providing a meaningful mobile experience means much more than rolling out a mobile app. New “twitter-like” application activity streams represent a breakthrough because these streams can keep workers aware of updates while on the go. However, activity streams represent the next major source of information overload, since unmitigated streams create a ‘stream of unconsciousness’ that is impossible to follow. Automated filtering and context-aware technology provide some hope, but these technologies are still in their infancy. This presentation looks at the promise, as well as the issues provided by activity streams, and it proposes practical strategies for providing ‘anytime, anywhere’ activity updates in a secure and scale-able environment.
