Creating a Satisfied Customer – What The Carriers Need To Do Now The recent news from AT&T about the end of unlimited wireless data came as no surprise, but still raised my hackles more than a bit.

Some More Thoughts Regarding What COPE Means For Enterprise Mobility

Some More Thoughts Regarding What COPE Means For Enterprise Mobility Where has the day gone?  It’s been one of those non stop days since dawn.  Frankly, that’s the way I like it.  The workaholic in me can’t deal with “slow” days.  I’ve spent part of the last 48 hours fielding some great offline questions regarding my last missive around what COPE can mean for the [...]

Could There Be a Better Way to COPE With BYOD In The Enterprise?

Could There Be a Better Way to COPE With BYOD In The Enterprise? “You can have any color you want…as long as it’s black.”  That’s a quote that is attributed to Henry Ford.  It makes me think about the “old days” of enterprise mobility…you know, the ones before we had the consumerization of IT and the tsunami better known as Bring Your Own Device (BYOD).  You could have [...]

The Cure For The BYOD Blues?

The Cure For The BYOD Blues? Just under 15,000.  That’s the number of miles United Airlines tells me I have traveled in the last 2 1/2 weeks.  Not the best excuse, but really the only one I have for not having shared any missives with you on a regular basis during this time period.  Miracle of miracles, I am not traveling [...]
