Visitors will gain an exclusive preview into up and coming technologies across the entire wireless value chain, some of which are not yet commercially available.
"We are excited to once again return to Mobile World Congress and demonstrate how OMA Enablers are driving developments in the mobile industry and ultimately how this is enabling broader adoption and delivering open specifications for the Internet of Everything," said Seth Newberry, General Manager of the Open Mobile Alliance.
GS1 will be hosting their exciting Google Glass demo, which will show the power of barcodes on product packaging to receive nutritional information, recipes, coupons and the ability to share the information on social media websites. Cameron Green, B2C Director at GS1 will highlight how OMA standards are critical in enabling a vision of the connected consumer of the future whose shopping trip and product usage are augmented with trusted information and services.
"Consumers are increasingly using mobile devices to research and purchase products. GS1 and OMA standards will allow more consumers to access accurate and trusted product information to help them with their daily lives," said John Phillips, SVP Customer Supply Chain and Logistics at PepsiCo.
Roger Ordman, Director of Product Marketing for Red Bend Software, will present the challenges that the car manufacturers are encountering from the convergence of the mobile and automotive industries, specifically in managing the multitude of software elements in the car. Roger will show that using OMA Device Management (OMA-DM) and specifically the Software Component Management Object (SCOMO) Enabler will allow the complex automotive industry to manage these software elements throughout the lifecycle of the car.
M2M will be under discussion by Zach Shelby, Director of Technology for the ARM Internet of Things Business Unit. Zach was the founder of Sensinode, which was acquired by ARM in 2013 and has been an active participant in defining the OMA Lightweight M2M (LWM2M) Enabler and will give an insightful discussion into the world of M2M and the need for standardization to support the projected growth of this market.
Gil Kazes, Domain Expert - Digital & VAS Services from Comverse, will focus on interoperability among a wide variety of legacy systems, and the convergence of those systems with new IP based services and technologies. The discussion goes on to show the primary goal is to enhance user experience and the operator's ability to build comprehensive communications systems.
George Percivall, Chief Engineer of the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC), will discuss the latest developments in Location-based Services (LBS) in an exciting presentation. George will look at how OGC and other standards developing organisations are co-operatively developing specifications that raise overall industry capabilities across differing mobile networks, platforms, and devices.
Camillo Carlini, Wireless Devices Innovation Manager at Telecom Italia, along with Luigi Carabiniere, Executive Chairman at 0infinito, will be discussing 'Are Smartphones (still) a vertical industry? Or is Standardisation progressing?' as well as looking at new initiatives for Smartphone openness and developer engagement.

Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.

As organizations realize the scope of the Internet of Things, gaining key insights from Big Data, through the use of advanced analytics, becomes crucial. However, IoT also creates the need for petabyte scale storage of data from millions of devices. A new type of Storage is required which seamlessly integrates robust data analytics with massive scale. These storage systems will act as “smart systems” provide in-place analytics that speed discovery and enable businesses to quickly derive meaningf...

DevOps is about increasing efficiency, but nothing is more inefficient than building the same application twice. However, this is a routine occurrence with enterprise applications that need both a rich desktop web interface and strong mobile support. With recent technological advances from Isomorphic Software and others, rich desktop and tuned mobile experiences can now be created with a single codebase – without compromising functionality, performance or usability. In his session at DevOps Su...

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

In today's enterprise, digital transformation represents organizational change even more so than technology change, as customer preferences and behavior drive end-to-end transformation across lines of business as well as IT. To capitalize on the ubiquitous disruption driving this transformation, companies must be able to innovate at an increasingly rapid pace. Traditional approaches for driving innovation are now woefully inadequate for keeping up with the breadth of disruption and change facin...

With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.

Culture is the most important ingredient of DevOps. The challenge for most organizations is defining and communicating a vision of beneficial DevOps culture for their organizations, and then facilitating the changes needed to achieve that. Often this comes down to an ability to provide true leadership. As a CIO, are your direct reports IT managers or are they IT leaders? The hard truth is that many IT managers have risen through the ranks based on their technical skills, not their leadership ab...

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem"...
