Mobile Expert Video Series: Accenture's Brandon Webber

At SAPPHIRENOW 2011, SAP and Accenture announced a partnership to develop and support mobility applications focused on three verticals: oil and gas, utilities and consumer products.  I met up with Accenture's Brandon Webber last week and was able to record this interview with him about this announcement and more. 

One of the most interesting segments of this interview is that Accenture believes their primary opportunity is not so much in developing individual mobility apps, but rather in delivering enterprise strategy, mobility platforms, integration and mobile device and data management.
