Enterprise Mobility: 15 Promising Mobile IT Companies Flying Under the Radar
Twice a year, Microsoft hosts a daylong??íDealmaker Media conference called??íUnder the Radar at its Mountain View, Calif., campus. The event showcases between two dozen and three dozen new companies with interesting new takes on technology, including some with totally original ideas that are competing for funding. These presentations are often viewed with great anticipation by professionals from several sectors: analysts, venture capitalists, private investors, potential competitors, potential OEMs as well as IT journalists. The theme of the latest edition of UTR, which opened on Nov. 12, was "IT mobility." This year's conference will look at how retailers, brands and media companies are looking to improve their customer relationship and engagement levels. About 29 companies will each get their time on stage before the mixed audience of folks mentioned above. C-level execs get to demo their products or sites, plead their marketing case and answer questions in a limited window of time. In this slide show, eWEEK highlights the first half of the companies that appeared at the conference. The rest will appear at a later time.
