To be held in CENTERIS 2015 – International Conference on ENTERprise Information Systems
Vilamoura, Algarve, Portugal, 7-9 October 2015
AIS Affiliated Conference



According to the European Commission report "A Roadmap for Advanced Cloud Technologies H2020 under", the environment of IST (market research, industry, education, training, etc.) undergoes constant changes. Thus, it is necessary to identify the major changes that can be expected in the next 5-10 years and may, or will, affect the environment of IST. It is expected, for example, that in 2015 billions of people connected by nearly a trillion devices, the concept BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) is practically general, as well as Cloud Computing.

Additionally, mobile malware has been around for a while, but it is only in the last few years that it is been used as a tool in the hands of cybercriminals. The growth of mobile malware is only going to continue as people increasingly conduct business and sensitive transactions via mobile devices and it is a result of a number of different factors. First, the huge numbers of smartphones being used; second, the variety of ‘interesting’ data now stored on these devices, such as: contacts, photographs, SMS messages, banking credentials and social networking logins; and finally, the growing use of mobile devices in business and the lack of awareness from organizations around mobile threats.

There are a number of major trends in the mobile space which will change the way software providers deliver applications and services. One of these trends is the move toward Mobile Websites instead of apps, hence Mobile Web Portals have a great impact. This progress it is important because literature in information systems rarely addresses the particulars of Mobile Web Portals from pure ICT view. This workshop encourages studies on technical, social and theoretical issues in mobile computing that will interest both practitioners and researchers.
