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 [...]

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 [...]

Disppearing Apps

Disppearing Apps We spend a lot of time talking about devices these days. Have you seen the new iPhone 5, the Samsung Galaxy S III, or how about that new one, what is it, the one with that really awesome camera. We think that the latest, newest, sexiest device will win the smartphone war and the enterprise [...]

Get IT Into The Game

Get IT Into The Game I watched somewhere in the neighborhood of 5 soccer games this weekend as my daughter was playing in three of them. I spend many weekends like this throughout the year going to different tournaments that she is taking part in. As I watched one of the games today and the strategies being employed by the [...]

The Effect Of BYOD On The IT Department Of The Future

The Effect Of BYOD On The IT Department Of The Future There’s obviously much discussion these days regarding the impact of BYOD in the workplace. Sure, we have seen recently some of the potential negative impacts of deploying a less than optimized BYOD plan, but the general consensus (not supported by yours truly) is that BYOD is the way to go.  A recent comment from an [...]

BYOD Is No Bed of Roses

BYOD Is No Bed of Roses You know I gave up a long time ago trying to NOT talk about BYOD.  It feels like it’s everywhere because it’s top of mind on almost every discussion I participate in these days.  It may even reach the point that people will start talking about BYOD when they’re not even talking about enterprise mobility.  [...]

If Mobile Device Management Doesn’t Matter, Then What Does?

If Mobile Device Management Doesn’t Matter, Then What Does? Thanks to the powers of the Twitter-sphere, I stumbled upon this interesting article called “Why Mobile Device Management Doesn’t Matter.” It’s certainly a provocative title, albeit not a unique one, particularly from enterprise mobility vendors that are trying to provide technology solutions to help manage the ever-explosive growth of mobility in the workplace via non [...]

Two BYOD Discussions…One Theme

Two BYOD Discussions…One Theme Another week, another flight.  At least that’s sure how it feels these days.  It’s not that I am complaining, because I actually enjoy tremendously the opportunity to meet new people (as well as reconnect with people I already know) and speak with them about something I am so passionate about.  It’s just a lot of [...]

How Do You CYA In a BYOD World?

How Do You CYA In a BYOD World? That was the name of the session I moderated this morning at the RSA Conference in San Francisco. Given that there were about 250 people in attendance in the room (on the last day of the conference no less), I don’t think I’d be going out on a limb to say that it’s a question [...]
