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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

My Mel Brooks Enterprise Mobility Moment

My Mel Brooks Enterprise Mobility Moment Growing up, my dad introduced me at a young age to the comedic genius of Mel Brooks. I think it started in 1981 with “History of The World, Part I.” I’ll never forget the great scene where the actors start singing “The Inquisition” or in the final credits where there’s the “preview” for “History of [...]

Benjamin Franklin: The Original Mobile Device Management Expert

Benjamin Franklin: The Original Mobile Device Management Expert I know.  You’re already saying to yourself after having read the title of this missive that I am completely off my rocker.  What’s new?  That was confirmed ages ago. However, Benjamin Franklin’s famous quote “The only things certain in life are death and taxes” did come to mind as I read an article at CRN [...]

The First Step To “Mobile First”

The First Step To “Mobile First” As I’m sure many of you did, I watched yesterday with great interest the streaming video feed from SAPPHIRE Now, SAP’s annual conference.  Of particular interest was the “SAP Mobile Press Conference” that was led by SAP’s Sanjay Poonen.  After Sanjay made his formal remarks, he invited some partners and customers to join him in [...]

Facebook Home And What Han Solo Can Teach You About Your BYOA Mobility Policy

Facebook Home And What Han Solo Can Teach You About Your BYOA Mobility Policy I am admittedly a little late in the game in writing this missive, but I put the blame squarely on the newest addition to the Winthrop Clan who has now made sleep a privilege and not a right for me.  Watch out world, in a decade (or two), you’ll hopefully hear from yet another rabid [...]

The Key To A Successful Enterprise Mobility Strategy: Focus

The Key To A Successful Enterprise Mobility Strategy: Focus You know, it’s interesting.  So much talk these days around enterprise mobility and BYOD is all about preventing your employee base from doing “bad things.”  OK, it’s not really said that way.  The more diplomatic terminology is Information/Data Loss Prevention (DLP).  Regardless of whether you are an optimist or a cynic, it really does boil [...]
