Kapow hooked me into lunch today at the AADI conference (where I am presenting for the majority of the week). They hooked me by showing me a mashup for the iPhone they had built (using their technology) that scrapes the Gartner AADI conference site to deliver a handheld based Gartner agenda management application. I’ve got to admit, it was cool. You can plan your agenda, search the agenda, and if you are in a session that isn’t meeting your needs (which I told them rarely happens) then you can hit a "Now" button to see other presentations going on at that time if you want to jump over.
The conversation progressed to the emergence of "Operational Intelligence" and its merger with mobile technology so workers can be sensors (remember my blog post mentioning "every soldier a sensor") and receivers who rapidly assemble a situational awareness and initiate an appropriate response. All from the comfort of your palm. This is yet another example portending the emergence of sense and respond systems. In this example Kapow mashed up Gartner AADI Summit content with an iPhone viz app. This is also a testament to the native mashabilty of WOA.
