MDSL teams up with GEMA (Global Enterprise Mobile Alliance) to deliver the next in its series of live webinars on Thursday, July 17 2014, with a discussion on key challenges and considerations to take into account in your Global Mobility Strategy
Thursday July 17 – New York: 9.30-10.30am – London: 2.30-3.30pm – Paris: 3.30-4.30pm
June 10 2014 – London, New York, Paris, Tokyo, Gothenburg and Hong Kong – MDSL, the leading global Technology Lifecycle & Expense Management solutions provider, announced that it will be holding the next in its series of TEM Webinars on July 17th 2014, entitled: “Global Mobility Strategy & Roll-out – Key Challenges and Considerations”.
MDSL is pleased to welcome Nick McQuire, CEO of global managed mobility services provider The Global Enterprise Mobility Alliance (GEMA), as a co-presenter on this webinar. Nick is responsible for the strategy and operations of GEMA, including overseeing its financial performance, business development, expansion and product development, and brings over 13 years’ experience in the enterprise mobility industry, most recently as Vice President at leading research firm IDC.
A recent Yankee Group survey found that companies, especially larger enterprises, are turning back to ‘pure play’ TEM providers and Systems Integrators for their global mobility solutions.
The report suggests various reasons for this trend. But what are the key factors to consider when compiling your global mobility strategy and preparing a multi-national roll-out? What are the major challenges and how do you legislate for them, to prevent delays and budget overruns?
The latest in MDSL’s quarterly series of TEM webinars will examine:
- Today’s key trends in global enterprise mobility strategy
- The primary mobility challenges facing multi-nationals
- What steps they’re taking to overcome those challenges
- What are the central considerations for multi-nationals over the next 6-12 months?
All these points will be supported by practical examples and case studies drawn from MDSL’s own extensive international experience as one of the leading global TEM providers and GEMA’s international experience as the preeminent expert in the management of enterprise mobility services.
Ben Mendoza, MDSL CEO and founder commented: “MDSL has a long and successful track record of deploying complex world-wide TEM installations on behalf of our multi-national clients. We have a long and proud reputation of careful attention to detail and innovation in tackling the problems which beset global companies as they install new IT infrastructures.
“As the growth in mobile devices continues to rise we have become experts in the integration of mobile device management technology into the global enterprise. In this webinar we will be demonstrating what the global organisation needs to know about now to be able to cope with the era of The internet of Things and Machine to Machine communications.”
Nick McQuire, CEO of GEMA, added: “The speed and complexity of mobility in the enterprise is accelerating, in some cases at a faster rate than some firms can realise its strategic potential.
“These trends are compounded in global organisations with large, distributed workforces which require specific support and guidance. I look forward to presenting in this webinar, designed to help multinationals understand some of the key mobility trends, customer challenges and potential solutions available to support their multinational enterprise mobility needs.”
