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 [...]

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 [...]

What is Missing From Enterprise Mobility Management?

What is Missing From Enterprise Mobility Management? Did you know that this year, we will be celebrating the 10th anniversary of the first BlackBerry smartphone? That’s right — white collar enterprise mobility will, for all intents and purposes, be celebrating its 10th anniversary.

Reflecting On Enterprise Mobility in 2012

Reflecting On Enterprise Mobility in 2012 I must admit that I have been procrastinating on writing this particular post.  In fact, I have been procrastinating for weeks on this.  I had wanted to do it at the end of the year, but stuff happened.  Then, I wanted to do it at the very beginning of the year…and guess what?  Stuff happened.  [...]

Understanding What Is and Isn’t An Enterprise Mobility Strategy

Understanding What Is and Isn’t An Enterprise Mobility Strategy It’s a rainy day here in Boston as we get ready to celebrate America’s independence today.  I was talking to a friend yesterday about enterprise mobility (I know….shocking) and he touched upon mobile strategy.  That got me thinking about what strategy means…it’s a word that gets (mis)used so frequently, that I sometimes think we don’t [...]

Could A Container Become Mobile Application Management 2.0?

Could A Container Become Mobile Application Management 2.0? OK, today’s missive is going to be rather theoretical and pensive…perhaps even more of a rhetorical question.  As the world of enterprise mobility continues to evolve at its frenetic pace, the conversations are shifting from one centered on mobile device management to one more centered on mobile application management (and ultimately to mobile information management [...]

The Costco Approach To Enterprise Mobility

The Costco Approach To Enterprise Mobility Hello from not so beautiful and not so sunny Orlando…the land of Mickey and Minnie Mouse and way too many other theme parks…and conventions.  OK, enough with the crankiness.  I’m here (for the second time this month) attending SAP’s big SAPPHIRENOW event…and when I mean big, I mean real big.  I lost count at 10,000 [...]
