During our sitdown at IBM InterConnect, Marie shared some of the proceedings from her two "Hot Topic" sessions in Singapore, one on the Mobile Enterprise and the other on Business Process management.
Marie also expanded on IBM's emerging "mobile enterprise" strategy, explaining that rather than seeing mobile as another blip on the technology evolutionary radar screen, it's an opportunity to be transformative across the enterprise.
From fomenting front-line employees' opportunity to be more collaborative in the field to enabling back-office overlords to use their smartphones to watch over and manage business process management processes, IBM is working to bridge systems of record and of data together with employees and external constituents in a much more transformative story than has been communicated to date.
It's an exciting narrative, and as Marie conveyed in the interview, mobile is touching the entire IBM portfolio.
