Episode 025 – Windows8 in the Enterprise with Ben Dewey

In this episode Phil chats with Ben Dewey about the impact of Mobile in the enterprise and the value of Windows Apps in this equation. Mobile is impacting everything in the world in the consumer experience, but the savvy enterprises are beginning to think carefully about how they can leverage mobile to radically change the way business processes are executed via Line-of-Business apps. Ben takes us through many categories of business scenarios where mobile can have a dramatic impact on the operational efficiency of your workforce as well as by improving access to information, data, and actionable intelligence for the immediacy of decision-support activities.

With the prevalence of Windows in the enterprise and the richness of the development tools and APIs available, Ben explores how to get started writing apps for both Windows and WindowsPhone to best position your enterprise to take advantage of what it means to mobile-enable your workforce!
