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.

Context awareness is important for your business!

Posted by Sascha Goeckel on Nov 7, 2016 2:31:27 PM

Let’s make one thing clear; context awareness is one of the most important topics in the IT landscape today. Without context awareness, IT departments cannot fulfill the requirements of their customers (means users) and the security and compliance requirements of their business. Not considering this fact may result in a disadvantage over the competition and in worst case it costs the business money.

The Future of Computing, 2016 Edition

Posted by Tim Mangan on Sep 12, 2016 2:29:14 PM



This summer we held the final (we think) BriForum here in Boston.  These 20 conferences have been both fun and very educational and I’m sorry to see them end.  So at the conference I pulled together a panel of some of the top minds in the desktop and virtualization space and had an excellent informative and fun session called “The Future of Computing”.

Joining me for the session were:

  • Shawn Bass (CTO of EUC at VMWare)
  • Ruben Spruijt (CTO at Atlantis Computing)
  • Dr. Benny Tritsch
  • Rick Dellinger
  • An awesome audience

In the session we started by asking the audience to answer a survey with couple of questions, which we then used as topics to discuss. I promised to post the full list after the conference.

Connected To The Mobile World, But Not To The Room?

Posted by Rob Bamforth on Feb 21, 2016 11:52:07 AM

Mobile devices provide a mix of connectivity and compute power on the move for most employees, and with the huge upsurge in adoption of tablets and smartphones thispersonal power can be used anywhere and remotely from other colleagues. However, it is still important in most working environments to get together, share information, make decisions and assign actions - i.e. have meetings.

What Does “Mobile First” Mean For Endpoint Management?

Posted by Ganesh Rama on Apr 23, 2015 10:19:05 AM

You have no doubt heard the term “Mobile First” used liberally these days. Clearly, enterprise adoption of smartphones and tablets has exploded lately (and, continues to grow). But, what does it mean and how does it affect your Endpoint Management strategy? The modern Mobile platforms have adopted a fundamentally different architecture compared to Windows OS of the past (XP,7 - we will call this "old Windows"). Along with iOS and Android, Microsoft also moved to a similar OS model, initially with Windows Phone, and going forward with a unified Win 10 platform.

Wearable devices - now a reality for the workplace

Posted by Rob Bamforth on Apr 13, 2015 9:24:06 PM

There has been a lot of hype about wearable technologies mostly focusing on smart glasses, watches and heath wristbands for consumers, but it is likely that there will be far more compelling reasons to use wearable devices in the enterprise. Here, wearable devices, perhaps often in combination with sensors and other interaction from the internet of things (IoT) will provide greater context and granularity of information and control.

Unified Endpoint Management – Are We There Yet?

Posted by Ganesh Rama on Apr 1, 2015 9:57:00 PM

There has been lot of chatter lately about Unified Endpoint Management. The explosion of iOS and Android devices in the enterprise & the subsequent emergence of Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) vendors, is a catalyst for this discussion. But, what exactly is Unified Endpoint Management? Can enterprises use “one solution” - “one console” to rule them all? Well, as always, it depends. There are several pieces to this. Let’s break this down.

Unifyle makes another friend

Posted by Brian Duckering on Mar 24, 2015 8:17:09 PM

Unifyle has always been a team player and bridge builder, literally unifying those who may not ordinarily play well together, all for the benefit of enterprise users. So the recent announcement that Unifyle is now able to integrate with the Symantec Sealed Program should come as no surprise.

Is Consumerization of IT Believable?

Posted by Brian Duckering on Feb 4, 2015 7:39:00 PM

Enterprise IT projects are easy to spot. They are the ones that take weeks and months to complete.  And yet they may never truly be complete - because enterprise IT is necessarily complex. As an IT admin, I know it’s always been that way and always will be.  Right?

Consumer projects, on the other hand, have to be simple enough and fast enough that almost anyone can get it done without getting frustrated and giving up after an hour of struggle.  Even the consumer “experts” have had to get their times down. An Xfinity system installation or upgrade used to waste 2 to 3 hours, but surprisingly is now generally done in half an hour.  As a consumer, I just won’t stand for it and consumer providers have adapted.
