TABLET STRATEGY adds Microsoft VP, SIU CIO and Pharma exec to Tablets 2.0 conference

March 6, 2014

The unique, one-day event features IT and business leaders in charge of tablet projects at their organization and how tablets are becoming indispensable productivity tools as a new generation of 'Tablets 2.0' devices emerge.

What’s next in BYOD? Can tablets replace notebooks? Android vs. iPad vs. Windows. Insights into using tablets effectively in sales. Management and security issues. All this and more will be covered at this exclusive event in expert solo and panel presentations. Check out the agenda here.


The initial list of confirmed speakers include:

  • Christopher Gish, Vice President of Sales at Sunovion Pharmaceuticals – a subsidiary of Dainippon Sumitomo Pharma – who will explain how the 500 sales reps he manages use iPads every day to make their sales calls more effective.
  • Jane Boulware, Vice President of the Microsoft US Windows Devices business, who will detail the shift in enterprise IT strategy to mobile devices and services. 
  • David Crain, Assistant Provost & CIO of Southern Illinois University (SIU) where he is responsible for all aspects of Information Technology, including a large deployment of Windows 8 tablets to incoming freshmen this past fall. He previously was the CIO for the Missouri House of Representatives.
  • Alex Bratton, author of the forthcoming book, Billion Dollar Apps, who will share his insights into how enterprises can unlock the value of their mobile apps development.
