Reflecting On Enterprise Mobility in 2011: Part I

Reflecting On Enterprise Mobility in 2011: Part I I can’t believe we are just two days away from Christmas.  Almost everyone is winding down for the year to spend some much deserved time with family and get ready for the new year.  It’s also a great time to reflect on what has taken place in the last 12 months. Maybe I’m just getting [...]

And Then There Were Four: The Enterprise Mobility Perspective

And Then There Were Four: The Enterprise Mobility Perspective Wow.  What an absolutely chaotic week in the world of (enterprise) mobility.  We spent the majority of the week digesting Monday’s news where Google announced its intention to buy Motorola.  Not to be outdone by that news, HP announced yesterday that it was cancelling immediately its webOS hardware business and considering its “strategic options” for [...]

Where Is The Line Drawn In What Defines a Mobile Operating System?

Where Is The Line Drawn In What Defines a Mobile Operating System? You know the expression “a picture is worth a thousand words?”  Well, today’s missive can absolutely be best described by the photo of French sculptor Auguste Rodin’s “Le Penseur” (The Thinker).   In case you missed it, Steven Sinofsky showed off the latest version of Microsoft’s venerable Windows operating system, code named “Windows 8″ to [...]

Does the iPad Really Enhance Productivity?

Does the iPad Really Enhance Productivity? As we continue down the long and convoluted journey of enterprise mobility, we often here talk about mobility management.  I still believe that managing the mobile implementations within (and increasingly beyond) the workplace is critical, but I also like to occasionally take a step back and see how we can take a broader perspective on [...]

New Speculation Around Microsoft and Nokia

New Speculation Around Microsoft and Nokia I must admit that today, I was hoping to provide some commentary on Steve Ballmer’s CES keynote – particularly around anything that he was planning on saying regarding tablets/smartpads.  Too bad Mr. Ballmer chose to completely overlook this emerging market during his high profile presentation.  That was a bit of a drag and an even [...]

Looking Back On Enterprise Mobility in 2010

Looking Back On Enterprise Mobility in 2010 It’s December 31….the last day of the year.  Sorry I have been out of touch this week, but I have been buried closing out the year, getting ready for 2011 and taking care of some pretty exciting personal stuff.  That said, 2010 has been a pretty amazing year.  As I sat down to begin writing [...]

Android Ambivalence: The Enterprise Mobility Perspective

Android Ambivalence: The Enterprise Mobility Perspective In case you missed Google announced today the latest version of its Android mobile operating system.  Version 2.3, a.k.a. Gingerbread is now available and will soon find its way to devices old and new – most notably the new Nexus S by Samsung.  There was a wonderfully interesting article over at ZDNet today that is [...]

Operating System Management: The Enterprise Mobility Perspective

Operating System Management: The Enterprise Mobility Perspective There’s a lot of buzz these days around mobile operating systems.  Apple recently announced the much anticipated upgrade of iOS 4 to 4.2 which now supports the iPad (yay!!!), and just today, financial advisory firm Jefferies upgraded its position on RIMM from Hold to Buy based upon the company’s new QNX based operating system.  Obvisouly, [...]

The Evolution of Exchange ActiveSync in Mobile Device Management

The Evolution of Exchange ActiveSync in Mobile Device Management I’ve been thinking about this issue for quite some time now….but candidly, I haven’t been necessarily able to put my thoughts to keyboard until today.  I guess my key theme is that I have been struck to a certain extent by the evolving role and position of Microsoft’s ActiveSync technology and its role in mobile [...]
