Mobile Expert Video Series: Latecia Mills

I must confessed to rarely having a female mobility expert included in my Mobile Expert Video Series, so today I am particularly happy to publish a video interview that I conducted a couple of weeks ago with a 20-year veteran of enterprise mobility Latecia Mills, VP of Global Services and Support with DSI. DSI has been in business for over 30 years, and they have been implementing mobile solutions for over 20 years.  It is not every day that I get to interview someone with that much real-world experience.  DSI grew out of the heavy duty warehouse management and manufacturing industries, and this year they made it onto Gartner's Magic Quadrant for MADPs (mobile application development platforms). ************************************************************* Kevin Benedict, Head Analyst for SMAC (Social, MOBILE, Analytics and Cloud), Cognizant Read The Future of Work Vi...

IRS Expands Electronic SIgnature Form Acceptance

The IRS announced this week that it’s taking more positive steps towards making a painful process – paying taxes – a little less so for everyone involved.  In a March 12 alert, the IRS informed us that it is expanding its acceptance of electronic signatures on Forms 8878 and 8879, making it simpler than ever for tax preparers to serve clients quickly by minimizing printing and signing of documents.   This follows on the IRS’s announcement last year that it would accept eSignatures on Form 4506-T, slowly but surely getting up to speed on standards established in the ESIGN Act of 2000. Form 8879 is the declaration document and signature authorization for an e-filed return filed by an electronic return originator (ERO). The new guidance replaces guidance from 2007 which limited the ways in which the forms could be signed..  This is great news for DocuSign customers for...

Twitter’s ‘Whisper Mode’ Could Prompt More DM Conversations

Twitter is looking to encourage more private discussions on its service. CEO Dick Costolo would like to have a “whisper mode” that allows users to take public conversations and discuss them solely with friends, according to a video interview with Bloomberg. While the social network is public-first, meaning content is shared with everyone by default (unlike Facebook, where friends are the default), it does have a direct message (DM) feature for one-on-one chats. This potential new feature isn’t likely to replace that, but rather allow users to pick a tweet or set of tweets and use them as a jumping-off point to start a DM conversation with one of their followers. Interviewer Emily Chang got the CEO talking by asking about messaging apps, and noting that Costolo has previous discussed enhancing the ability to move between public and private conversations.
