The challenges involved in integrating various mobile technologies are nothing new. At Impact 2010, Verizon Director of IT Venkat Gaddam (shown here) described “an explosion of operating systems and handsets." He saw different cell phones, different OS versions, different patches - all of which spelled trouble for Verizon IT. At Impact 2012, Gaddam discussed his current use of the mobile middleware platform called Worklight, recently purchased by IBM. It allows development teams to develop once and deploy everywhere. While diverse, the future of technology is highly integrated, he said, adding, “The day of standalone things is at an end.”
