Fonemine, the enterprise
mobility software company, today at Mobile World Congress announced
availability of MobileForce
for Good, which delivers mobile workers great effectiveness by
enabling them with instant access to all back-end applications and
content from any mobile device.
MobileForce for Good provides mobile workers such as sales teams, field
services, medical and healthcare professionals and manufacturing workers
with instant access to any of their corporate applications, such as SFA
and CRM systems like Oracle CRM or Salesforce.com, order and quote to
and content management systems such as Documentum or Sharepoint, EMR
and CAD systems as well as Collaboration tools such as Jive, Cisco
WebEx, Jabber or Skype – from a single, unified and native mobile app
with just a few taps of a finger – on any mobile device.
“Our customers have experienced significant productivity gains as a
result of MobileForce,” said Jagadish Bandhole, CEO of Fonemine. “For
example, when a vice president of sales delivers up-to-the-minute
selling information into the hands of reps with just a touch of a
button, they are empowering their teams to deliver new levels of
customer intimacy. Couple that with instant access to all of their key
sales tools and applications in a single user interface on any mobile
device, and you’ve got the makings of true 21st century
mobile sales warriors.”
Built from the ground up for easy deployment and IT Ready, MobileForce
for Good delivers all of its rich functionality from the cloud
via SaaS, so there is no need for new CapEx, custom programming or
lengthy installations. Complete with industry standard plug-ins, single
sign-on and security standards, it works stand alone or with any MDM or
MAM. Privileges, features and system access can also be personalized for
users based on their role or function in the organization. It combines
the power of native mobile applications – such as offline access and a
rich user experience – with all key mobility features such as push
notifications, location, camera functionality, and more. Best of
all—customers can be live in days, instead of the many months required
by custom app development.
"The Good Dynamics® secure mobile application platform enables Fonemine
to offer our joint customers native access and interaction to all backed
systems—such as Salesforce, Oracle and SAP—securely from their mobile
devices,” said Herve Danzelaud, vice president of Alliance, Good
Technology. “With Good Dynamics AppKinetics, Fonemine and Good can
enable multi-system access, all within a secure framework using a
single, unified and native mobile app, which helps significantly
increase productivity and employee effectiveness while on the go.”

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…

Early adopters of IoT viewed it mainly as a different term for machine-to-machine connectivity or M2M. This is understandable since a prerequisite for any IoT solution is the ability to collect and aggregate device data, which is most often presented in a dashboard. The problem is that viewing data in a dashboard requires a human to interpret the results and take manual action, which doesn’t scale to the needs of IoT.
