We will give you the edge.

While many resources are available on the subject of consumer-facing mobile interaction strategies, if you’re looking for insights on how to really leverage mobile within the enterprise–by empowering employees and re-engineering business processes–your options are few and far between.

As transformative as mobile has been, new technologies such as cognitive computing, bots, beacons, IoT, machine learning, Augmented/Virtual Reality further extend the potential of existing mobile solutions. And are all very early in their maturity curve.

That’s why we created the Emerging Technology Council (ETC). We are a community of business and technical leaders in Fortune 1000 companies focused on one objective: driving innovation and business value with mobile and other emerging technologies.

  • Mobile Application Strategy
  • Internet of Things
  • Cognitive Computing
  • Bots
  • Mobile Security
  • Machine Learning
  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Mobile Backend as a Service
  • Beacons
  • Augmented/Virtual Reality

Our executive guidance helps members deliver effective, high-impact intelligence and experiences to employees, partners and customers.

Unlike other analyst or industry groups, the ETC has no sales angle or vendor bias. Members benefit from privileged access to insider market intelligence and resources.


Many of today’s top industry leaders already rely on the ETC for top quality mobile research and real-world knowledge sharing.
