The Mobile News Delivery Device

When the first news reporter began working in live radio, the world was informed; when the first reporter began working in live broadcast, the world was transformed. The world has changed since then with the introduction of mobile and social channels, and now, reporters are civilians.  Civilians are news-hounds, and their audience is global, aware, and informed, all at the same time.   The mobile device has made us boundary-less and timely. It has allowed for immediate video streaming of global events and happenings from a variety of perspectives.  From wartime bombings reported via Bambuser to live updates from the Middle East via @jeananmoussa on SMS, we are now in the throes of a fresh news delivery platform.   One example of a solidly-delivered news piece from a civilian reporter via a mobile device was around an incident that happened a few years ago on the ...

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...
