Michael Rheinheimer, Advisory Software Engineer for IBM mobile solutions, talks about how enterprises have a unique problem today in supporting a BYOD (bring your own device) environment.  How can they reduce cost supporting the wide variety of mobile devices, operating systems, and capabilities brought into their infrastructure?  How can apps be managed without relying on third-party app "stores"?  What is the best solution for mobilizing all these legacy desktop and web apps?  How does the enterprise ensure their intranet remains secure?  He will briefly discuss the costs and solutions for all of these problems.

Cindy Reyna, Developer Relations, talks about the new WebSphere® Application Server V8.5 Beta Liberty Profile and how it has been redesigned - by developers, for developers - to provide a lightweight application foundation and optimized developer and operational productivity. 

Ewan Auguste, Developer Relations, talks about how MQ telemetry is leading the way in M2M and device connectivity and the profound impact it is having on mobile messaging and application development
