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.

The first day of elementary school for my two sons and daughter is this Thursday, August 28. With the new school year comes a decision on what device(s) they'll use to do their school work - both in class and at hime.

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

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
