Good’s Virtual Mobility Summit features nine expert-led sessions with everything you need to maximize your investment in mobile: best practices, how-to’s, expert panels, case studies, and more. Browse through the sessions below and find the ones that are right for you.
Speakers: Christy Wyatt, President & Chief Executive Officer, Good Technology
Most IT Managers consider “secure mobility” a paradox. Lack of security is often still cited as the #1 reason companies choose not to adopt mobility more aggressively—and in one sense they’re right to be concerned. Most businesses don’t take security seriously enough. Anyone with a computer, a cable, and a few minutes with your phone can steal your information as easily as syncing to iTunes. Yet mobility is rapidly becoming a mainstream business requirement; users and business leaders want to expand—not limit—access to corporate systems from their choice of mobile devices. So how do we address this dilemma? Join in on this informative session to hear Christy Wyatt, President & CEO of Good Technology propose a way forward that:
- Focuses on managing and protecting the data separately from the device
- Preserves the user experience and privacy
- Accommodates the emerging need for a “multi-tenant” approach that spans a range of personal and corporate content on the same device.
Speakers: Christopher Fryer, Director of Information Technology, Hanson Bridgett , Jeff McGrath, Senior Director of Product Marketing, Good Technology
Perhaps no other industry has embraced mobile email more than the legal market. Hanson Bridgett, a mid-size law firm that serves a diverse client list of national companies, government entities, regional businesses, and individuals, initially provided its more than 150 attorneys with BlackBerries. The firm now uses Good for Enterprise to allow employees to work wherever and whenever they want on their personal smartphones and tablets. As the next step in its mobility strategy, Hanson Bridgett is working to deploy the Good Dynamics Platform to enable attorneys to be even more productive by using secure mobile apps, especially ones that work with the firm’s document management system (DMS).
- How Good for Enterprise has allowed Hanson Bridgett to support their BYOD program with secure email to give lawyers access to critical attached documents in compliance with regulations such as HIPAA and the HITECH Act
- Considerations as the firm moves beyond secure mobile email to other mobile productivity apps using the Good Dynamics Platform
- How Hanson Bridgett is working to overcome roadblocks with software vendors as Hanson Bridgett mobilizes attorneys’ workflows

A fundamental transition is underway from the desktop to mobile devices —and with it comes an evolution from IT-driven “Systems of Record” to LOB-driven “Systems of Engagement.” Mobility enables employees to engage more productively “at the edge", taking business interactions closer to customers and partners, and streamlining processes in ways that previously had not been possible. Progressive companies of all sizes and industries are seeing improved productivity and teamwork, greater customer loyalty, and competitive differentiation. Join Good Technology and mobility experts from Forrester Research Inc., Mitsubishi Electric, and Salesforce.com, as they discuss:
- Opportunities and challenges arising from enterprise mobility
- How leading companies are already transforming their businesses
- Considerations when planning a mobile strategy
- The impact on the organization: IT, LOB, Users, Developers
Speakers: Allen Spence, Vice President of Worldwide Professional Services, Good Technology, Jeff McGrath, Senior Director of Product Marketing, Good Technology
