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 [...]

Research in Motion – The Options Now

Research in Motion – The Options Now RIM, the maker of the popular (well, historically, anyway; read on) BlackBerry line of products, and one of the firms that essentially defined mobility as we know it today, has been all over the financial news for months. The company’s stock has fallen dramatically (it was around 145 only a little more than a year [...]

Making The Case For Four (Enterprise) Mobility Ecosystems

Making The Case For Four (Enterprise) Mobility Ecosystems As you may have seen yesterday, RIM posted some pretty disappointing earnings for the second quarter.  As expected, the stock tanked in after hours trading, and is down ~20% today.  The situation is anything but rosy for our good friends in Waterloo.  And those very highly paid vultures better known as financial analysts continue their [...]

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 [...]

(Enterprise) Mobility: It’s About Playing Chess, Not Checkers

(Enterprise) Mobility: It’s About Playing Chess, Not Checkers It’s only Wednesday morning and it’s already been a crazy week.  Like many of you (I would assume), I spent the better part of Monday digesting the news regarding Google announcing its intention to buy Motorola.  Since the news came out, I can’t tell you how many people have called or emailed me to ask [...]

Does the OS (Mobile or Otherwise) Still Matter?

Does the OS (Mobile or Otherwise) Still Matter? I was watching one of the business TV channels recently, and a guest expressed the opinion that RIM’s (BlackBerry) current problems stem largely from the lack of a contemporary and competitive operating system. OK, my views on RIM are on record – they’re going to survive and can even prosper in the future, sustained by [...]

How Patent Law Could Radically Change The Mobile Landscape

How Patent Law Could Radically Change The Mobile Landscape Since yesterday, I have been biting my tongue a bit….trying my best to not comment on something that occurred yesterday.  Unfortunately, it’s been nagging so much that I just can’t stop myself from writing this missive.  I’ve been trying to hold off because it’s not 100% DIRECTLY related to enterprise mobility and how organizations should [...]

BYOD’s Impact On Mobile Enterprise Applications

BYOD’s Impact On Mobile Enterprise Applications I had an interesting conversation today with someone regarding my thoughts on how HTML5 Is Not (Yet) a Panacea For Mobile Enterprise Applications.  The person asked one question that got me thinking.  Is there any impact on your mobile enterprise application strategy if you choose to allow personally liable devices to be used in the [...]

Strategy vs. Requirements: The Enterprise Mobility Perspective

Strategy vs. Requirements: The Enterprise Mobility Perspective Before we get ready here in the United States to celebrate the birth of our nation by enjoying a nice long weekend, I wanted to pen one quick missive based upon an article I just stumbled upon.  It was an interview with Richard Kerris, HP’s vice president of Worldwide Developer Relations, as he talked about [...]

HTML5 Is Not (Yet) a Panacea For Mobile Enterprise Applications

HTML5 Is Not (Yet) a Panacea For Mobile Enterprise Applications Today is a good morning here in Boston.  The mighty Bruins have tied up the Stanley Cup Playoffs with another decisive win against the Vancouver Canucks.  I maintain the theory I tweeted that the winner of the Cup should be decided based upon the total goals accumulated during the seven game series.  I think some [...]
