Webinar – 2015 Mobile Recap and Trends for 2016: With 2015 drawing to an end, IBM and special guest Richard Absalom, Ovum Research analyst, will take a look back at the exponential growth of the mobile enterprise this year and share 2016 predictions for what we should expect in the new year. Secure your spot for Wednesday’s webinar now.
