Mobile Unified Communications and Tablets: Are We (Almost) There Yet?

Mobile Unified Communications and Tablets: Are We (Almost) There Yet? Two missives in two days.  When was the last time you saw that here?  See, I told you that things were going to finally settle down and I could actually focus again on my beloved enterprise mobility!  I’m not even sure how I stumbled upon this article over at Light Reading where Sprint executive Jeff [...]

Interop Fall 2011: The Big Issues Now

Interop Fall 2011: The Big Issues Now I’ve had the privilege of Chairing the Wireless and Mobility Track at the Interop conferences for some time now. Interop Spring, held in Las Vegas, is the largest enterprise IT event in the world, and the New York event, Interop Fall, while smaller, is in no way less intense than its big brother.

Managing Enterprise Mobility in Europe

Managing Enterprise Mobility in Europe Hello from beautiful Amsterdam.  Today, I spent the day at the iCE Amsertdam event to talk about how organizations need to think about deploying their enterprise mobility strategy – and in this case, within Europe, as opposed to the traditional North American view on life.

So What Exactly Is Mobility?

So What Exactly Is Mobility? Hello from rainy Orlando.  No complaints here though – it’s only 40 degrees warmer than in Boston.  I’m here today for Enterprise Connect – the conference formerly known as VoiceCon (anyone get the Prince reference?).  In any case, I attended this morning a “Coffee Session” on mobility and UC (Unified Communications).  The moderator started off [...]

Thinking About Mobile Thin Clients

It was an article on Microsoft’s website about thin clients and cloud computing.  The first sentence of the article cracked me up: While not a new concept, [...]

4G: The Majesty and the Marketing

4G: The Majesty and the Marketing 4G, whatever that is, has arrived. But are the carriers misleading customers as to what this development really means?

My New Handset: A Tough Decision? Not Really…

My New Handset: A Tough Decision? Not Really… In my last column, I mentioned the fact that I was shopping for a new handset, and, at last, that process is now complete. Now, as I work in the mobility field, I don’t go all ga-ga over new toys. Well, OK, I do, for a couple of days, anyway, but truth be told I [...]
