It is no secret that mobile has changed the way we live, work, learn, communicate... basically insert any daily activity and mobile has revolutionized it. However, many organizations still fall short in accommodating the demand for mobile technology as it becomes more pervasive. Elaina Farnsworth, CEO of Mobile Comply, recognized the need to support the demand which fueled starting the company.  Today she and her company are actively engaged in training and certifying IT professionals on mobile solutions.

What is your elevator pitch? What problem are you trying to solve? 
Mobile Comply is a mobile technology training firm that teaches organizations how to use mobile devices, applications, and mobile tools in their enterprises in a strategic and engaging way.
Our vision is to empower individuals and organizations with competence and professional excellence in building and sustaining effective mobile ecosystems. Toward that end, we provide mobile training solutions, courseware, curriculum development and strategy.

Where do you see the mobile landscape in 5 years?
The world of M-to-M (mobile-to-mobile) technologies will be our new reality in 5 years. The connected vehicle, appliance, streetlamp, wearable device,  health monitors - everything that can have a chip in it will, and those devices will send out messages: to parents, to first responders, to teachers, etc. The implications are huge.

What kind of company culture are you trying to create?
Our core values are: we empower excellence, we act with integrity, we have a passion for learning and teaching, we influence ethical practices, we embrace innovation, we improve society, we set the quality standards in mobility certifications, we value diversity, we respect all people, and we support each other.  I think Mobile Comply is a great place to work, we attract bright, happy and future-thinking people to our team.

What do you think is the most interesting trend in mobile right now? What trends would you like to see in the future?
The trend I see happening is the extremely rapid change in the mobile device environment  - in education, enterprise, and government.  For example, going from BYOD to organizationally-owned devices. Last year it was about MDM (mobile device management) and this year its about EMM (enterprise mobility management). Coming up next is FYOD - (fix your own device).
How the devices are functioning within an organization is changing. In the past, the focus for IT managers was on "How do I manage these devices?" to the present, which is now "How do I protect the data on these devices?"
The trend I am looking forward to most is M-to-M (mobile-to-mobile) technologies - how the car will communicate with your phone and with your heart monitor, for example. Our biggest mission is that we want to teach people and organizations how to manage these advances in the right way - ethically and responsibly.
