IBM's Bring Your Own Device Strategy
   

In a Computerworld interview, IBM CIO Jennette Horan discusses IBM's Bring Your Own Device strategy (BYOD):

"IBM's BYOD program "really is about supporting employees in the way they want to work," Horan said. "They will find the most appropriate tool to get their job done. I want to make sure I can enable them to do that, but in a way that safeguards the integrity of our business."

To that end, the company has issued a series of "secure computing guidelines" to employees in an effort to raise awareness of online security and the sensitive nature of corporate data, Horan said.

So far, about 120,000 users are accessing IBM's network through mobile devices, and of that total, 80,000 are supplying the device and paying the monthly service fees, according to IBM spokesman Tim O'Malley. The remaining 40,000 are using smartphones issued by IBM. The company has an "aggressive" projection for growth for this year, although a specific figure wasn't available, O'Malley said."


The article goes on to discuss IBM's usage of Lotus Traveler for access to corporate email, contacts and calendar, the deployment of  IBM Endpoint Manager for Mobile Devices and an internally developed secure file sharing application similar to DropBox.

In a related note, Bill Bodin, also from the IBM CIO's office delivered a webcast yesterday with more details on IBM's internal deployment of mobile technologies.  A replay is now available online.

Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference 2014 Summary
Fri, Jul 18th 2014 4:25p   Christopher Pepin
I attended the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference (WPC) earlier this week in Washington D.C and I wanted to take this opportunity to share my impressions. An annual event, this year's conference had over 16,000 attendees who earn their living from selling Microsoft-based solutions. The highlight of the conference was a passionate, vision keynote from Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella. This was my first time attending the Microsoft partner conference as part the IBM MobileFirst team which incl [read] Keywords: ibm apple application applications community email enterprise google microsoft mobile office skype twitter

Android for Work announced at Google IO conference
Fri, Jul 11th 2014 12:25p   Christopher Pepin
The initial releases of Apple iOS, Android and Windows Phone were aimed squarely at consumers and offered few if any features geared to business users. However, all that's changed in the last few years with the growth of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and Corporate Owned, Personally Enabled (COPE). Increasingly, users want to access both work and personal information from a single mobile device (AOL CEO Tim Armstong's three smartphones: Android, iOS and BlackBerry not withstanding) Jump forwar [read] Keywords: apple blackberry enterprise google microsoft mobile network

I travel regularly for business and personal and the use of mobile technologies has dramatically improved the overall experience. As I author this blog post, I am in the middle of a two-and-a-half week business trip throughout Asia Pacific including Singapore, Thailand, Australia and the Philippines and I can't imagine making the trip without a smartphone. Here are a few of my favorite mobile applications for travel: Travel plans: TripIt.

Apple expands iOS 8 Enterprise Support at WWDC
Mon, Jun 2nd 2014 2:32p   Christopher Pepin
Earlier today, Apple kicked off their annual World Wide Developer's Conference (WWDC) in San Francisco. During the keynote session, Apple CEO Tim Cook and team provided details on the upcoming version of OS/X and iOS. Of particular interest to me are the new enterprise features in iOS 8. Last year, Apple introduced a wealth of enterprise features in iOS 7 and iOS 8, due out this fall, didn't disappoint. With over 4,000 new API's, iOS 8 is poised to be one of the largest upgrades yet.

Divide is joining Google and looking ahead to Apple WWDC
Fri, May 30th 2014 10:08a   Christopher Pepin
On May 19, Divide announced that they were being acquired by Google. Given the integration of Divide with IBM Endpoint Manager, I'm very familiar with the solution and used it on my smartphone to access IBM work data. Divide is a mobile container solution and the Divide secure workspace provides separation between personal and work data. One of things I liked most about Divide was that my mobile device no longer required a device password and I only got prompted to enter a password when I acce [read] Keywords: ibm apple enterprise google integration mobile password security workspace
