Consumer technologies changing the world: CIO Workshop

Jack Loo | May 31, 2013
Conference attendees at Day Two of the CIO Workshop find out how mobility is transforming businesses.

Samsung developers have written at least 700 APIs that can be used to help IT shops customise BYOD security policies in partnership with Mobile Device Management vendors such as Mobile Iron, Juniper, AirWatch and Sybase.

Continuing the conference's strong focus on mobility is the presentation by Jung-Seong Han, head manager of New Trend & Business, Hana Bank. The bank saw the potential of mobile devices and has ventured into the mobility app space since 2009.

"We saw that smartphone users are using their device as a problem solver. So the bank's approach to mobile banking is to position ourselves and services where we can help them offer solutions," said Han.

The bank has at least five apps, including one that is built for medical tourism, taking advantage of South Korea's advanced cosmetic surgery industry.

The apps include a slew of features such as personal financial management services and location-based coupon offerings. The bank also added personalised touches like using social network services-based user interface and customer support avatars that are actually real customer service agents.
