No argument that mobility is important to the enterprise, but I'm not sure that it warrants a C-level job title, as advocated by Cara Shockley (HP) and others. Certainly, the discussion underscores the role that mobility plays on application modernization and cloud computing. While many organziations are deploying mobile devices as a primary computing solution the applications and resource availability (say access to printing regardless of location) have lagged the availability of those solutions. What's required may be a simple best practices framework that organizations can utilize as part of their cloud computing transition/build-out.
