Weekly Enterprise Mobility Wrap-Up: Sept 21-25
Meeting the demand for mobile everything
There’s no doubt that cellphones are ubiquitous. The amount of data that is transferred all around the world amounts to a stunning 30 exabytes (1 exabyte = 1 billion gigabytes!) this last year. Surprisingly enough we’re only just beginning to truly go mobile. In the not too distant future, machines and appliances are expected to come online as well. WiFi and data networks will need to intelligently increase capacity to support the future of mobile everything.
Managing apps and content is key to enterprise mobility management
Enterprise mobility is shifting. It used to be that you could govern just the device (in a BYOD, or Bring Your Own Device, program), or just control your standard email and calendar apps. What’s become apparent is a more granular approach is now necessary for employees to access mobile apps and data. In addition to managing apps and content, the addition of Mobile Identity Management is a way for IT to ensure company data is secure - by ensuring only trusted users have access.
Why iOS Could Become the Enterprise OS of the Millennial Generation
Despite PCs still ruling the desktop marketplace, the reality is younger people consume things from the phones. Now with the iPad Pro, Apple is positioning themselves to become the standard workplace device among millennials. It’s obvious now that Apple doesn’t only want to be a consumer-focused company, they want to rule the enterprise as well.
A farewell to firewalls: how enterprise mobility redefined VPNs
Data in the enterprise is no longer housed in a central area within the corporate network; with the numerous devices in use there is a dissemination of data across many points in the network. Because of this, the boundaries of connectivity have had to change. While maintaining security, instead of housing data only behind the firewall, organizations must consider how they can provide access to these devices, plus how they will manage to support the various platforms.
