Break The Mold - iPhone for the Mobile Enterprise - Senthil Krishnapillai - Director of Product Management, Sybase iAnywhere
Business users are actively embracing Apple’s iPhone and bringing it into the enterprise - both through the back door and the front door. iPhone developers have a significant opportunity to help businesses gain a competitive advantage by empowering workers with a true mobile office – secure email, mobilized business processes, and seamless access to back-end enterprise systems. In order to achieve this vision and help companies truly realize the power of the iPhone in the enterprise, a mobile infrastructure is needed that enables enterprises to move away from single ‘one-off’ applications to a more strategic mobile platform.
Senthil Krishnapillai is director of product management at Sybase iAnywhere. Senthil's mobile communications group, part of the Information Anywhere suite, is responsible for the designing and bringing future generation of Mobile collaboration products to the market.
