The Impact of Mobile and Social (Justice)

The Impact of Mobile and Social (Justice) I’m not one to usually comment on a specific mobile application, even though I get bombarded on a regular basis by PR people pitching me on their clients’ “new and innovative” mobile applications.  I’m making an exception today regarding an interesting new mobile application that I came across (without the help of PR execs) because [...]

There’s a Device For That

There’s a Device For That It’s a truly gorgeous day today here in Boston.  In fact, I will argue that those who live in this area find the weather that we will have here the next couple of weeks the climactic reason we suffer through the bone chilling winters and sweltering summers.  I remember a time when we even had [...]

Lessons Learned In Enterprise Mobility in Retail

Lessons Learned In Enterprise Mobility in Retail This was, admittedly, a rather disappointing weekend.  No no…I’m not talking about the emotionally crushing defeat that my beloved New England Patriots suffered yesterday in Superbowl XLVI.  I’m talking instead about a visit I made to a “Big Box” retail store.  I went to that store looking at kitchen appliances.  The most exciting part of [...]

The Fourth Amendment Vs. (Mobile) Risk Management

The Fourth Amendment Vs. (Mobile) Risk Management For better or for worse, the world of enterprise mobility is, in my opinion, saddled with an alphabet soup of acronyms.  EMM, MDM, MAM, WEM, MEAP, MCAP….I could go on and on.  Call it society’s ever increasing need for speed, and a small peppering of ADD (oh, wait…I just did it myself).  One of the [...]

Bricks & Mortar Should Embrace and Not Fear The Savvy Mobile Shopper

Bricks & Mortar Should Embrace and Not Fear The Savvy Mobile Shopper It’s (once again) a great day to be a Boston sports fan.  The late (and great) Myra H. Kraft must have called in a few favors last night when the New England Patriots squeaked by the Baltimore Ravens for a spot in the forthcoming Super Bowl.  Hopefully she also called in a few favors so [...]

Apple’s New Textbooks: The Enterprise Mobility Perspective

Apple’s New Textbooks: The Enterprise Mobility Perspective As we speak, Apple is showcasing in New York City its new iBooks 2 platform, alongside its new wonderfully immersive Textbooks.  In one respect, I’ve been wondering when this would happen in the education space.  Nevermind the green side of the equation (less trees being turned into pulp), there are wonderful improvements in terms of [...]

A Christmas Carol: The Enterprise Mobility Edition

A Christmas Carol: The Enterprise Mobility Edition I’m not going to even bother telling you what time it is right now, because it’s that early here on the east coast of the United States.  It’s pitch black with the sun not set to rise for quite some time, and I am getting ready to fly off again to the West Coast.  At [...]

e-Discovery vs. Bring Your Own Device

e-Discovery vs. Bring Your Own Device I know, I know…it’s been a while since you’ve seen me ramble on about something in enterprise mobility.  The truth is, I’ve been unbelievably busy with work and getting the last minute details sorted out for my impending nuptials. The other fact of the matter is that people are heads down implementing enterprise mobility (it [...]

Recapping The 2011 Enterprise Mobility Boot Camp

Recapping The 2011 Enterprise Mobility Boot Camp Hello from beautiful San Diego where CTIA is kicking off its Enterprise and Apps show today.  Yesterday, the Enterprise Mobility Foundation held its second annual Enterprise Mobility Boot Camp during the pre-conference day.  Let me start off by saying it was an absolutely surreal experience. We had planned on having 130 seats available….and we even [...]
