Mobile-First Era – Keynote Speakers Take the Stage
As the world shifts to mobile-first in both the consumer and enterprise space, a burgeoning new era of disruptive technologies are changing traditional operations, upending routine systems, and transforming the world as we know it today. Carl Rodrigues, President & CEO of SOTI presented on the conference theme “Disrupt or be Disrupted” during his engaging keynote, diving deep into the next realm of game changing technology, and SOTI’s unique focus on bringing all the core pieces together into one integrated platform, SOTI ONE.
During SOTI SYNC, the company announced their position as the first Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) solution to manage mixed mobility and IoT deployments, with the introduction of support for Linux. This is part of the newest update to the company’s flagship EMM product, SOTI MobiControl, available from October 31, 2017.
“Mobility is changing the way we work. Businesses need to support mobile workers wherever they are – in the field, warehouse, storefront, or hospital room – no matter the form factor or OS. SOTI has been laser focused on empowering our customers to do exactly this for 20 years. Our newest version of SOTI MobiControl with Linux support is a powerful step along the important journey of enabling our customers to take full advantage of the next wave of mobility. Our proactive roadmap and delivery of visionary technology addresses the problems the enterprise will face, readying them for the mobile-first future with unmatched security and control,” said Graham Watts, Principal Product Manager at SOTI.
