Mail & Guardian CTO, WeChat Africa head among EMA Summit keynotes

EMA summit 2014

The Enterprise Mobility Africa Summit (EMA Summit) will be taking place at the Maslow Hotel in Sandton, Johannesburg, 6-7 February 2014. The agenda is packed with industry speakers and geared to connect attendees with both the early adopters, and the developers of Enterprise Mobility (EM) technology.

Keynote speakers at the summit are set to cover hot topics such as Alistair Fairweather, CTO of the Mail and Guardian, speaking about customer-facing applications and customer-driven mobility projects. As Fairweather was responsible for launching the first paid iPad edition of a weekly newspaper in South Africa, he will be speaking about the potential that mobile apps have to improve productivity in enterprise.

Instant messaging service WeChat has been making waves the world over with 600 million registered users and 100 million active daily users. Brett Loubser, who heads up WeChat for Africa, will speak on Native application technology for different devices, “has the time come to consolidate?”

Loubser has been in the mobile space since 1997 and has experience in product marketing from both network operator and device manufacturer perspectives.

Gareth James, a published IT author and Solutions Strategist for CA Technologies will share his views on mobile apps, and expand on the opportunities task-specific mobile apps presents to employees and customers.

Between presentations, attendees are invited to take part in 90-minute workshop sessions to learn about EM solutions, working closely with solution providers such as Airwatch, TechMahindra and Webroot. These sessions are designed to maximise Q&A time, giving attendees the chance to raise any questions with IT experts and peers.

Spots are still open, so be sure to check out the EMA Summit website for more information and to register for the event.
