The Revolution Is Here, and the Revolution Will Be Mobilized

Aaron1“The revolution will not be televised.”

With those simple words, great soul and jazz poet Gil Scott-Heron reminded us that things are changing and changing fast. As he once explained, “That song was about your mind. You have to change your mind before you change the way you live and the way you move…The thing that’s going to change people will be something that no one will ever be able to capture on film. It will just be something you see and all of a sudden you realize ‘I’m on the wrong page.’”

Those who are successful in business today never find themselves on the wrong page. They reject the status quo and seek perfection. Mobile is taking over and leaving those who ignore it to rue the day they said no to BYOD. In my days at Salesforce.com, I saw more exploding bar charts explaining this trend than Al Gore used at his last TED Talk. This is not a disputable fact. Mobile IS the revolution, and Kinvey moves fast enough to harness it.

The debate rages over how to best allow the Enterprise to tap into the mobile revolution and harness it for their employees. While walled gardens exist, no one has been able to burrow and tunnel effectively enough to link them. Herein lies my reason for joining Kinvey. As a set of talented individuals and a company, they get it. They see the possibilities. Kinvey has the answers.

As a salesperson for most of my career, I join Kinvey knowing that to be successful, I should be able to access information about my company or customer wherever I am, at a second’s notice. Though I’d like to task my brain with that job, the sheer volume of information is simply beyond one human’s capacity. Mobile technology vaporizes that limitation. I don’t need to take the time to fire up the laptop and enable my 3G card whenever an “important” piece of information is needed. I shouldn’t have to wade through a clunky app just to find a customer’s phone number or billing history. I should have it at my fingertips, and Kinvey will make that possible.

So as I embark on this great adventure, I re-borrow that famous line, since hijacked and repurposed by the great rapper Common Sense in a more applicable lyric: “The revolution will not be televised. The revolution is here.”

If I might be so bold as to make it my own, I’d say: “The revolution is here, and the revolution will be mobilized.”
