While there, he led an organization of over 400 to help build a new asset management outsourcing business and technology platform that grew to handle over $3 trillion in assets.

Rich Napoli will be presenting on "iPad Apps for the Enterprise: More than just a clever UI" at 1:30 PM on 14th September at the event. He will also be one of the panelists of Enterprise and Government experts sharing first-hand experiences about developing complex mobile projects in their organizations. Rich's presentation will address the challenges involved in developing applications for tablet devices, especially for the iPad. Developing enterprise mobile applications that deliver on business requirements can seem easy, but the specific challenges should be first found out and then addressed to achieve outstanding performance. Since developing for the iOS platform is relatively new, many developing companies are not familiar with the challenges and think that creating an iOS application can be faster and need less work than developing for the web or desktop devices. Overcoming these perceptions involves training developers and business users in order to embrace this change in technology in order to maximize on the many benefits and have it deliver returns for your business organization.
