New Style of Agility drives the Mobile Experience at HP Discover

Going Mobile? Don't forget to test, your customers won't! says A.J.Murray, one of my fellow bloggers highlighting the need to deliver applications that run according to the needs of  the brave new social world of mobile interactions.  Agile methodology has long been about shorter development cycles with real-time adjustments based upon direct interactions with the end user.  However, with software defining the new brand of the digital enterprise, competitive enterprises of the future must adopt a ‘New Style of Agility.’  What could this new style of agility entail?  Checking out a few of the HP Discover sessions on Mobility in Barcelona would be a good start.

Discover the Inner GPS of Enterprise Transformation

Dr. John O’Keefe, will share this year’s Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine with May-Britt Moser and Edvard I. Moser. These three scientists are being recognized for their discovery of an “an inner GPS, in the brain,” that solves the basic mystery of how the brain creates a map of our surroundings and helps us navigate our way through a complex environment.  Sound familiar?  Enterprise Transformation can similarly be described as both are a continuous engine. The New Style of IT drives a new style of leadership triggering a new style of thinking that develops the “Inner GPS” for the enterprise.  Can enterprises zero in on this “Inner GPS” of transformation?  Let us see if the sessions at HP Discover Barcelona offer any clues!

The state of technology in 25 years

Rejuvenating the trifecta of partnership at HP Discover

“Sometimes 30-year marriages need a little rejuvenation,” quipped HP CEO Meg Whitman on stage at HP Discover Day 2 with Intel CEO Brian Krzanich and Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella by video. New York Times Columnist and Pulitzer Prize winner, Thomas Friedman was on stage moderating the discussion between these three leaders of the 21st century—leaders who embrace a new style of thinking to address the challenges faced by the enterprises of today; spearheading a new wave in their respective companies. This new wave of thinking goes beyond the enterprise, and applies to the partnership as a whole. It is time to rejuvenate this trifecta of partnership between HP, Intel and Microsoft. And what better place to do this than on stage for the first time together at HP Discover 2014?

 

Discover an enjoyable User Experience beyond the GUI

“It is not just about being useful, but it needs to be usable and ultimately enjoyable.” That was the slide that was up on the screen as I walked into the DT3804 session - How to build great Mobile Apps by Traci Terterian and Oded Klimer at HP Discover. Terterian was talking about building great mobile apps, based on a design that is centered around the new Nucleus of IT—the user. In the true spirit of having fun in the Race to the New Style of IT, the Mobile App must be an enjoyable experience for the user—an app  the user should want to use rather than have to use. Therein lies the fundamentals of “an enjoyable user experience,” much more than the basic functional value the Graphical User Interface (GUI) used to deliver. Useful doesn’t cut it anymore.
