The Story of IBM's Mobile Enterprise Office Hours Twitter Chat

On January 31st, IBM announced a couple of big moves in the mobile space. The news touches on IBM's Enterprise Mobile strategy, solutions and services. I teamed up with the PR team to host virtual office hours, in the popular Twitter Chat style, for press, analysts, IBMers and the public. Bob Sutor and Scott Hebner joined as the intrepid hosts fielding some two dozen or so questions in addition to shedding light on IBM's view of the mobile industry and IT management of devices in today's increasingly connected work force. We used Tweetchat.com to host the chat and used the new #IBMMobile hashtag for the first time. You'll be seeing a lot more with this hashtag in the coming weeks and months, save that search in Twitter! Check out Bob's blog for his POV on the announcement and follow him - he's a great contact to discuss IBM's technical strategy for mobile. He's also speaking at Mobile World Congress at the end of February. Embedded below I'm sharing the entire Storify summary of the #IBMMobile Twitter chat, where I included announcements, chat set-up tweets, Q & A, mobile factoids, conversation starters, upcoming event info and reference links. I'd be remiss if I didn't thank @Bob_Sutor, @SLHebner, @Faye429, @CRubsamen, @Calebbarlow and the countless others who participated in this first of it's kind Twitter Chat with either questions, comments or helping get the word out about this impromptu event with less than 1 hour notice! Stay tuned for future chats.

To kick things off, here's a snazzy infographic about the Mobile Enterprise.
