Is BYOD Really a Requirement For a Successful Mobility Strategy?

Is BYOD Really a Requirement For a Successful Mobility Strategy? I can’t believe how quickly the time has passed over the last couple of weeks.  Let me start off by saying that the imagery associated with today’s missive is nothing more than a homage to my World Champion Boston Red Sox.  I, among many other people in Red Sox Nation are quite tired, having stayed [...]

Could Analytics Be a Threat To Enterprise Mobility?

Could Analytics Be a Threat To Enterprise Mobility? I just came back from a speaking engagement in California.  The main theme of the event was the empowerment of the workplace via mobile applications.  Needless to say, I was pretty excited about the topic. See, for all the talk about BYOD and enterprise mobility management, the “cool” part of enterprise mobility is when you [...]

The Mistrust In Enterprise Mobility

The Mistrust In Enterprise Mobility Hello.  Remember me?  I’m the crazy enterprise mobility enthusiast who used to have the time to write semi-witty (and hopefully semi-intelligent) missives on this site.  And then life kind of went haywire for me over the last 30 days.  In any case, I’m back (I hope).  In one respect, I look at this unintentional hiatus [...]

Dual Persona: The Ideal COPE Enabler?

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 [...]

Could COPE Be The Betamax of Enterprise Mobility?

Could COPE Be The Betamax of Enterprise Mobility? I know it may hard to believe, but I assure you there was a time (right around the Mesozoic Era I believe) where audio and video was not served for your entertainment pleasure as a digital computer file.  In fact, there was a time where audio and video was distributed on this thing called “tape.”  [...]

The Challenge of Misnomers in Enterprise Mobility

The Challenge of Misnomers in Enterprise Mobility I just came back from Vegas.  This was my first trip since the birth of my daughter, so I had almost forgotten the joys of dealing with airport delays and incredibly long days full of meetings.  Good times!  In any case, I wanted to share with you something that happened during the CTIA conference this [...]

The First Step To “Mobile First”

The First Step To “Mobile First” As I’m sure many of you did, I watched yesterday with great interest the streaming video feed from SAPPHIRE Now, SAP’s annual conference.  Of particular interest was the “SAP Mobile Press Conference” that was led by SAP’s Sanjay Poonen.  After Sanjay made his formal remarks, he invited some partners and customers to join him in [...]

The Religious Side of Enterprise Mobility

The Religious Side of Enterprise Mobility Over the last few weeks, my wife and I have been taking a class at our shul.  A shul (pronounced shool) is actually a Yiddish term that means synagogue.  A shul is also a place of learning (notice how it resembles the word “school”), because the rationale is that you not only pray at your [...]

Facebook Home And What Han Solo Can Teach You About Your BYOA Mobility Policy

Facebook Home And What Han Solo Can Teach You About Your BYOA Mobility Policy I am admittedly a little late in the game in writing this missive, but I put the blame squarely on the newest addition to the Winthrop Clan who has now made sleep a privilege and not a right for me.  Watch out world, in a decade (or two), you’ll hopefully hear from yet another rabid [...]

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 [...]
