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 [...]

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 [...]

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 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 [...]

Knowledge Workers

Knowledge Workers The best part of being back from vacation is catching up with people. Your mind has had a chance to rest and hopefully put your work aside (it’s good to not look at emails for a week) and you come back refreshed and raring to go. One of the conversations I had last week was [...]

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 [...]

The Mistrust In Enterprise Mobility

The Mistrust In Enterprise Mobility Hello.  Remember me?  I’m the crazy enterprise mobility enthusiast who used to have the time to write semi-witty (and hopefully semi-intelligent) missives on this site.  And then life kind of went haywire for me over the last 30 days.  In any case, I’m back (I hope).  In one respect, I look at this unintentional hiatus [...]

Dual Persona: The Ideal COPE Enabler?

Dual Persona: The Ideal COPE Enabler? Late last week, I briefly caught two unrelated conversations on Twitter regarding the deficiencies of BYOD, dual persona, and COPE – three of the top issues being discussed these days in the enterprise mobility universe.  We all know where I stand on BYOD, and I have shared some thoughts in the past regarding my mixed [...]

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 [...]
