BYOD: Get Your MDM Off My Device

Posted by Rory Monaghan on Mar 12, 2018 2:51:34 PM

This article title has a couple of those oh, so wonderful acronyms we love to throw around in the tech industry. BYOD = Bring Your Own Device and MDM = Mobile Device Management. These two acronyms go hand in hand.

For years now, enabling BYOD has been a goal for many organizations. Those working as IT professionals have probably heard that in the past, IT has been the department of No and today, modern IT teams need to be the department of Yes.

Application Virtualization Smackdown Evolved

Posted by Rory Monaghan on Jan 23, 2018 12:14:07 PM

Some of you may have noticed we finished out the year 2017 without a release of the Application Virtualization Smackdown. This was intentional as we re-imagined the Smackdown.

We added CloudHouse to the Feature Matrix. We also added Thamim Karim and Kris Smith to our AppVirt Guru team. As the team has expanded, we found it the perfect time to rebrand AppVirt Guru too, giving the site a slicker layout.
