“The most costly disruptions. . . . Always happen when something we take completely for granted stops working for a minute.” – Jed Bartlet (Martin Sheen)
When we think of those disruptions, things like the power grid or the water supply come to mind. These are things that have been part of our society for so long that we just can’t imagine them not working. And when they do go out, like in the case of a power outage, it is extremely disruptive and needs to be immediately addressed. I had my power go out about 2 weeks ago due to a transformer blowing out during some construction work. My whole neighborhood shut down and everyone went outside to figure out what was going on, only to see street lights out, traffic acting like ants that had someone step on their path and a general sense of confusion. The real issue was that power is so reliable and so taken for granted that its failure is something completely out of the ordinary in our society and is rarely due to the systems running the power grid, but, as in this case, caused by something extraordinary like the construction accident.

It was a great second day at HP Discover with lots of things going on in the mobility space. We saw some incredible new announcements and a lot of talks about how HP is helping IT to change the way we do business and mobilize the enterprise.

As a California native who grew up near the beach I like to say that I run on salt water and sun. So when December hits, I can’t think of a better place to be than the wonderful city of Barcelona with the sea breeze coming off the Mediterranean keeping me going. That’s why I’m so happy that we are returning to Barcelona for HP Discover again this year, and it’s looking to be bigger and better than ever. I’ve been working with the Mobility team on a lot of the planning and there is just some great stuff going on in this space. Be sure to check out all my sessions and everything HP has to offer in the mobile space! I’ve jotted down some of my thoughts as we get ready to head for the Med once again and continue the Enterprise Mobility journey.

I learned a lot of things at Mobile World Congress this year from the various vendors and exhibits. The quality of the information I gathered was top notch, but the most interesting discussions came outside the venue. Whether we were on a break or out to dinner, we were discussing the future of mobile.

Wow, what a week. I just returned from Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona and all I can say is it was overwhelming! The changes that are coming over the course of the next year are really going to redefine how we look at mobility and devices overall. It was a week filled with great information, great people and great products starting with a half-day theater session with HP.

If you are a parent today, you live your life in fear. Everything needs to be sanitized with 99.7 percent anti-bacterial soap to protect your kids from the germs that surround us. The corporate world isn’t much different in their thinking when it comes to Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) policies. We have security and IT executives who are scared to death that viruses from the outside are going to walk in on their employee’s smartphones and attack their networks.
I recently wrote a post on informationweek.com that talks about what precautions you need to go to in protecting your networks from BYOD. I encourage you to read it here.

It seems like just yesterday I was on a plane back from Las Vegas after our last HP Discover, and I can’t believe Barcelona is now just around the corner! What I think is even more exciting is that in just that short time I’ve seen the mobile landscape change again. With the launch of the HP Chromebook, the Nexus5, the iPhone 5 (s and c). Too many new changes to count, oh and don’t get me started on the new companies, the mergers, the latest technologies, and it’s only been 5 months.
All this is just making the idea of heading out to Barcelona and meeting customers and industry peers to talk about what HP is doing in the mobile space that much more exciting. For the uninitiated, HP Discover is our big event we hold twice a year to showcase what we, and our partners, are doing. Attendees get to experience the latest hardware, software and services in a fantastic venue on the Mediterranean. ( I have to admit, I’m going to be doing my best to sneak out and hit the beach. But, I think I’m going to be pretty booked up.)
Currently I have four different sessions/panels that I’m going to be a part of. I would love you to come join me at one or all of them as we discuss everything there is to discuss about mobility in the enterprise. Discussions will range from our own journey in HP IT to the entire enterprise mobility landscape. There’s a little something for everyone.
If you’re attending, please be sure to sign up for one of my sessions. I’m always happy to meet with people that are working in the mobile space and answer questions, but also learn what you are up to. If you haven’t signed up for Discover,I encourage you to register here. I promise it’s an awesome conference that you won’t want to miss.
The following is a list of the sessions I’ll be a part of:
|BB1682||Mobilizing HP: how to embrace BYOD|
|BB1683||Mobilizing your enterprise: an expert panel|
|BB2085||Lessons from HP IT and HP experts. Empowering your mobile workforce – BYOD and productivity|
|TB1895||Mobilizing the HP enterprise – The IT Journey|
Hope to see you all in Barcelona!

I’ve been working in the Bay Area for the best part of the last almost 20 years and I’ve seen a lot of things come and go. I remember the days when Craigslist was simply run by Craig Newmark out of his loft in the city and he’d throw parties to bring together everyone working on the web. I also remember when we discussed merging our Web Development firm with a company that did WAP development back in 1999. A lot has changed since those lofty days of the Internet Boom and we experienced quite a bust after that period. But as everyone knows, the Silicon Valley is based on a bust and boom, bust and boom economy. This is not because we create bubbles, but because we create. And when we create the world takes notice.
