Venture Capital IT is the reference event in Portugal in the Venture Capital area. A group of national and international specialists in Entrepreneurship, New Technologies and Venture Capital gathers during the two days of the event to discuss ideas about projects, concepts, tendencies, among many other approaches.

Defining a Profitable Mobile Deployment in 2006

The pace of mobile application deployments is rapidly accelerating in organizations of all sizes. Three factors are convincing people to move forward and also defining the success of these deployments: 1) the business case, 2) security and 3) simplicity of execution. Business strategist and columnist Craig Settles shows you how organizations weave these factors into a deployment that enables them to cut costs, increase revenues and run a better business.

Receive guidelines for effectively identifying end user needs as well as cost and revenue centers that wireless can impact so you develop a realistic business case with obtainable objectives. Discover why the greatest ROI often comes from mobilizing the least number of tasks. Learn how to create a “culture of security” among line of business managers which lowers the threat of data and device loss.

Mr. Settles offers insights and practical tips to make your deployment a winner. This presentation is ideal for those who have a mandate to evaluate or execute a strategy plan for mobile and wireless technology in their organization.
