Weekly Enterprise Mobility Wrap-up: Oct 3-14
This month, Google announced a new device, Pixel, which provides for a solid Android experience. Also, is an all-in-one enterprise mobile management solution the right way to ensure security?
Hands-on with Pixel, the most Googlely Android phone ever
For those in pursuit of the best Android experience on a phone, you might consider Google’s newly announced Pixel device. The Pixel has a clean, seamless design and much attention is paid to the camera. There is also integrated machine learning technology for hands-free interaction with the phone.
App security in a mobile world
As mobile apps become more readily available to the workforce, so too are challenges presented to IT organizations to maintain security. To achieve a balance between app availability and data security, IT should concern themselves with device management, app management, and finding ways to secure data.
The three remaining obstacles to ubiquitous workforce mobility
While more and more people are going mobile to perform functions of their job, and while companies continually are making greater investments in mobile solutions, there are still a number of ways that companies are challenged when it comes to enabling mobile. Namely, a rich user experience can seem pretty far off, especially considering the translation of legacy applications and data to a more streamlined mobile experience.
How to successfully deploy an Enterprise Mobility Management solution
Deploying an enterprise mobile solution to a business could be compared to organizing a large scale event: there are timelines that are often tight and focused, and the budget is a matter for great consideration. Keeping in mind that EMM solutions can put strain on IT resources, it’s important to account for lead time and ensure that the right support channels are in place. Oftentimes businesses will go with an all-in-one enterprise mobile solution simply because of ease of deployment in comparison to something for ad hoc.
Mobile workplace open to threats
All over the world, workers are demanding a more mobile workplace. With increased availability to company data in a myriad of ways, so too does this open up an organization to threats. More than ever, appropriate measures must be taken to ensure security is always maintained while keeping workers productive on their mobile devices.
