I just spent the last 2 days at GigaOm Mobilize and it was a great event to think about where the connection is between Mobile and Data Centers. I had a chance to spend time with a lot of C Level executives of the companies exhibiting and when I heard of good consumer scenarios l found myself thinking of how the technology could be used in the data center ecosystem.
How can mobile be used in data centers to support better operations?
One interesting talk was by Flipboard CEO, Josh Quitner.
LEARNING FROM FLIPBOARD
Moprise Is Launching A
“Flipboard For The Enterprise”
Moprise is launching a new iPad application it’s calling a “Flipboard for the Enterprise.” The app is a tablet-optimized version of the company’s currently available Coaxion iPhone application. The Flipboard analogy isn’t quite right, however. Flipboard is about reading news and articles, browsing photos and viewing updates from your social networks in a magazine-like format. Coaxion and Flipboard are only similar in that they both have easy-to-browse, touchable, swipe-friendly user interfaces. But Coaxion’s content is corporate documents, not news or tweets.
What enterprise problems is Moprise solving?
- Work with All Your Critical Documents
Seamlessly integrated access to SharePoint and Dropbox keeps you connected to all your important documents.
Optimized Microsoft Office document views allow you to see everything including annotations, graphics, and formatting.
- Discuss and Share in Real-Time
Group messaging and sharing in real-time keeps your team in sync and moving forward from anywhere.
All conversations and documents are transmitted over encrypted connections, and discussions and documents are only visible to the coworkers you explicitly invite.
When conversations are closed, files are removed from devices while leaving the originals on SharePoint and Dropbox intact.
- Optimized for Mobile
Push notifications keep you updated in real time without draining your battery.
Geekwire also covers Moprise.
Flipboard has transformed the way people consume information on the iPad, allowing readers to quickly scan headlines and photos in a beautiful and easy-to-read interface. Moprise co-founder David D’Souza now wants to bring that same type of functionality to business documents through a new iPad application they’re dubbing “Flipboard for the Enterprise.”
D’Souza and his team previewed the new application at theTechCrunch Disrupt conference in San Francisco last week. We caught up with the ex-Microsoftie to learn more about what they are up to.
In fact, it was an experience at Microsoft that helped shape the concept of the new product, which is known as Coaxion for iPad.
Maybe it is my Microsoft time that gets me thinking about Enterprise and where the money is. David D'Souza and i were chatting how much more money is available in the enterprise vs. consumer and we'll continue the conversation on how Moprise could be used in data scenario document scenarios.
One of the huge opportunities for Mobile is in the enterprise and there were many other talks on this topic at Mobilize.
