The Next Imminent Threat of BYOD

The Next Imminent Threat of BYOD There are two truths in enterprise mobility – at least as far as I am concerned.  The first truth of enterprise mobility is that BYOD is an absolutely unstoppable force.  The second truth is that I will not stop complaining about BYOD until the world agrees with me.  Yes.  I am THAT stubborn. Sure, I [...]

Can Someone Please Explain To Me The Real Value of Mobile Containerization?

Can Someone Please Explain To Me The Real Value of Mobile Containerization? Good G*d.  It’s been ages since I have written anything here.  Candidly, my professional and personal lives have been chaotic and are only going to get more so.  Oh well…this is what most people call good problems.  In any case, let me cut to the chase.  I want to talk today about mobile containerization.  While [...]

Enterprise Mobility Has Become A Song By Queen

Enterprise Mobility Has Become A Song By Queen Another Mobile World Congress…another piece of big news in enterprise mobility.  In 2013, AirWatch announced an absolutely enormous “A” round of funding.  This morning, venerable EMM vendor Good announced that it had (finally) acquired its long time partner BoxTone.  I don’t need to spend any time talking about the merits of this deal, because my [...]

If BYOD and Mobility Are Everywhere, Do They Matter?

If BYOD and Mobility Are Everywhere, Do They Matter? Hello from the frozen tundra of Boston.  Because I am shivering here, I will try to keep this brief and pithy.  So you all know that I have been on two primary kicks/themes for some time now.  The first is that I hate the term BYOD.  Actually, it’s not that I hate the term BYOD [...]

My Un-Prediction for Enterprise Mobility in 2014

My Un-Prediction for Enterprise Mobility in 2014 Some might call me a creature of habit.  In one respect, I can see why.  Now, while I may not be as bad as Sheldon from The Big Bang Theory, I have been doing the exact same thing on the first business day of the new year for at least the past five years.  I [...]

Driving To Consensus On Enterprise Mobility Management – Are We There Yet? Are We There Yet?

Driving To Consensus On Enterprise Mobility Management – Are We There Yet? Are We There Yet? I found myself spending a surprisingly considerable amount of time this past week discussing on the Twittersphere the concept of Enterprise Mobility Management  You know, I must admit to you that I find it curious.  Enterprise Mobility Management is a concept that has been around since at least 2006.  One would think that a topic [...]

Is BYOD Really a Requirement For a Successful Mobility Strategy?

Is BYOD Really a Requirement For a Successful Mobility Strategy? I can’t believe how quickly the time has passed over the last couple of weeks.  Let me start off by saying that the imagery associated with today’s missive is nothing more than a homage to my World Champion Boston Red Sox.  I, among many other people in Red Sox Nation are quite tired, having stayed [...]

Finally! A Valid Reason To Consider Containerization

Finally! A Valid Reason To Consider Containerization So the “Where In The World is Philippe Winthrop?” game has taken a very brief pause.  I’ve been home a whopping – wait for it – SIX days!  During that time, I have had the opportunity to watch some amazing Boston sports wins.  Literally, as we speak, I am watching the Boston Red Sox play [...]

Mobile Application Development is Like Shampoo

Mobile Application Development is Like Shampoo I think I’m going to create a new game.  Remember “Where in the world is Carmen Sandiego?”  I think it should be renamed “Where in The World is Philippe Winthrop?”  If only I were jesting.  While I was in rainy London last week, I greet you today from sunny Orlando, where I am attending my [...]

Mobile Security: How Do You Manage Your Mobile Risk?

Mobile Security: How Do You Manage Your Mobile Risk? Two trips in two weeks that take me to the West Coast.  Sure, it’s nice to be in gorgeous San Diego, but it certainly makes for long days.  Actually, I should mention that also having the opportunity to play a PGA caliber golf course is quite fun.  In any case, I am here in San [...]
