The Mobile Research Council Launches First Enterprise Mobile Community Forum

Leader in Enterprise Mobility and Industry Veteran Launch First and Only Enterprise Mobile Research, Advisory Services and Expert Community

SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/08/14 -- Propelics, a leader in enterprise mobile strategy and delivering world class mobile apps, and industry mobile market research analyst Maribel Lopez, of Lopez Research LLC, announce the launch of the first enterprise mobile expert community as part of The Mobile Research Council (MRC). This community will create a forum for technical and business leaders from Fortune 1000 companies focused on driving innovation and business value with mobile software and solutions. Many large enterprises are already thriving members of this community.

The MRC was formed in late 2013 to assist organizations who are launching enterprise mobile. These organizations are able to communicate across businesses, the shared learnings within enterprise mobility, and have access to mobile experts. The council members receive easy access to the community along with Lopez Research market research and strategic advisory services.

The three tiers of membership are:

1. Community. Those subscribed to this tier have access to the community of other enterprises who have launched or are launching an enterprise mobile strategy. Monthly MRC Member Roundtable Calls will take place exploring hot mobile topics and issues. Community members also receive a weekly MRC Newsletter, featuring best practices and advice on driving innovation and business value with mobile.

2. Professional Community. Those subscribed to this tier have access to the community of other enterprises who have launched or are launching an enterprise mobile strategy. Monthly MRC Member Roundtable Calls will take place that explore hot mobile topics and issues. Community members also receive a weekly MRC Newsletter, featuring best practices and advice on driving innovation and business value with mobile software and solutions. In addition, companies receive 10 Hours of Lopez Research analyst inquiry time as well as 2 Day On-site Mobile Strategy Innovation Session from Propelics.

3. Elite. This level combines the Community + Professional membership options. In addition, members receive 1 week of Propelics Mobile Strategy Kickstart, 40 Hours of Propelics proven methodology, tools and advisory and 10 additional hours of Lopez Research analyst inquiry time.

According to Maribel Lopez, "Over half of the companies we interviewed globally plan to deploy 5 or more mobile apps within the next year. Companies are looking for guidance and best practices for this journey. The MRC will help members to quickly and effectively deliver high-impact mobility to employees, partners and customers. Unlike other analyst or industry groups, MRC has no sales angle or vendor bias. Members benefit from insider access to real-world mobile experience, and gain privileged access to market intelligence and resources that would otherwise be difficult to attain."

"Propelics is excited to partner with Lopez Research to make research and advisory services actionable, enabling organizations to change customer interactions, identify new business models, and create a competitive advantage through enterprise mobility. The new tiers of membership provides a flexible pricing model and a customize approach," according to Adam Bookman, Partner at Propelics.

Cognitive Computing is becoming the foundation for a new generation of solutions that have the potential to transform business. Unlike traditional approaches to building solutions, a cognitive computing approach allows the data to help determine the way applications are designed. This contrasts with conventional software development that begins with defining logic based on the current way a business operates. In her session at 18th Cloud Expo, Judith S. Hurwitz, President and CEO of Hurwitz & ...
WebRTC adoption has generated a wave of creative uses of communications and collaboration through websites, sales apps, customer care and business applications.

What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...
