iPhone as Biz-Phone - Sybase to Present at AJAXWorld's iPhone Developer Summit

Enabling iPhone Support for Enterprise Applications & Messaging

With millions of iPhones sold in recent months, enterprises are challenged with how to manage the influx of these personal devices coming "in the back door" without compromising security policies. One IDC analyst states, "Bringing secure enterprise wireless email to the Apple iPhone brings it one step closer to being able to be used as a trusted enterprise device."

This is the background to the iPhone Developer Summit session "iPhone as Biz-Phone" to be given in March by Sybase's  Senthil Krishnapillai.

The session will advocate a proactive approach to adding iPhone as a supported device, and illustrate how doing so provides enterprise support for iPhones and reduces security concerns, while still providing a rich user experience utilizing the native iPhone mail application.

Krishnapillai, director of product management for Sybase iAnywhere, is responsible for bringing future generations of mobile collaboration products to market. He has more than 15 years experience in product management, marketing and development for mobile devices and smartphones and is a member of various consortiums including OMA-DS, CTIA.

iPhone Developer Summit - March 18-20, 2008 New York City
Could Apple iPhone become a viable portable gaming solution (like PSP or NDS) one day? If the iPhone does as expected and takes a decent chunk of the growing smartphone market then will malware writers start to give OS X some serious attention as the overall penetration of OS X skyrockets? How does a developer decide whether to create a web app or an iPhone native application using the iPhone SDK?  How does the iPhone SDK stack up against Windows Mobile 6.0/.NET Compact Framework 3.5?

These are among the dozens of questions to be asked and answered at the iPhone Developer Summit being held in New York City in March - an intensive and content-rich two-day program designed to satisfy the growing hunger among software developers and IT professionals for a broad spectrum of sessions informing developers what kinds of development options and opportunities the iPhone provides.

The Technical Chair of the event is Kevin Hoffman, editor-in-chief of iPhone Developer's Journal.

In the two-day Summit, to be held March 18-20 at The Roosevelt Hotel in midtown Manhattan, developers will hear from industry experts about the impact the iPhone is having on delivery of rich content to mobile users. Technical sessions will explore a world of web development opportunities on the iPhone including building applications using the new ASP.NET MVC framework, building social applications, and developing high-quality, iPhone-style web-based GUIs for your applications. Additionally, more than a dozen expert faculty speakers will help delegates learn about issues such as when to use the iPhone SDK and when to develop web applications, and how Google's Android differs from the iPhone SDK and iPhone safari development?

Attending delegates will leave the iPhone Developer Summit with resources, ideas and examples they can apply immediately.
