Mobile Expert Video Series: Kony Solutions' Sam Lakkundi

Several weeks ago I had the good fortune to meet up with my long time friend and mobility expert Sam Lakkundi while I was in Orlando, Florida.  Sam and I have been meeting up at enterprise mobility conferences for most of a decade.  He has traveled the world first with Sybase, and now with Kony Solutions as the VP of Mobile Strategies.

Kony Solutions is an interesting company.  They are kind of the new kid on the block in the enterprise mobility space, but they have huge experience in the mobile B2C (business-to-consumer) area.  This experience is serving them very well now because as companies adopt the BYOD (bring your own device) model, they are finding that the B2C and B2E (business-to-employee) models are converging.  If a company decides to support a wide number of mobile devices using many different mobile platforms, then that is basically the same model as B2C.  This plays to Kony Solutions' strengths.

In this interview Sam discusses BYOD models, HTML5, enterprise mobility, mobile strategies, mobile UX, mixed mode development and much more.
