The New Mobility: BlackBerry CEO John Chen on the Paradox of Simplicity



John Chen
CEO, Blackberry

Charles K. Kao Auditorium, Hong Kong Science Park | October 17, 2014

MIT Enterprise Forum Hong Kong, in partnership with Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks Corporation, proudly present the "Technologies that Matter" series featuring John Chen, CEO, Blackberry.

Mobile is not just about phones anymore. As billions of objects - including cars, appliances and medical devices - connect to the Internet and each other, virtually every aspect of daily life will be transformed. But as mobile innovations seek to simplify how we live our lives, they introduce new levels of complexity into how businesses manage billions of new endpoints and how we define innovation.

In an open and fun dialogue format on a Friday afternoon, John will share his view with us on the follow issues:

  • The challenges faced by businesses as technology moves toward more diverse and dispersed mobility, which is blurring the traditional lines between work and personal communication;

  • How security is more essential than ever – even as the definition changes from restricting what users can do to enabling them to do more;

  • The latest on BlackBerry’s turnaround as the company that revolutionized mobile communications itself undergoes a rapid transformation to lead the next era of mobile computing.
