Yesterday's Twitter chat focused on the balancing act between mobile access and security. Most agree that mobile workers must be given acccess to perform their jobs. Others weighed mobile access in terms of business value: if there's value in access, it must be given.
With that in mind, the Tweets of the week came from CIO Wilfredo Lasalle (@wlassalle). There's two:
"The attention to BYOD mattered when it was wanted by the users/business. Now the CIO needs to manage its security implications."
What is the balance enterprises can strike about how much access they should allow mobile workers without compromising security? What's more, how do enterprises acquire and manage corporate data assets generated on mobile devices?
You probably don't need convincing that workers want the flexibility mobile provides. Indeed, in a new book from three Forrester Research analysts contends that mobile is dramatically changing business. It is called "The Mobile Mind Shift."
Yea, I know it depends. I am wondering if there is a rule of thumb or any guidelines about how to strike a balance. I also wonder about all the data on farflung mobile devices and how that gets integrated into the enterprise and how it is managed.
Just read an article “Nokia planning phablet for 2013”. The original information appeared in the Financial Times. Yes they put the word “phablet” into brackets, but everybody seems to know what they mean. Wonderful language that keeps expanding itself.
The world is increasingly becoming digital and interconnected. At the moment, our main focus is on human interactions, but that is changing quickly. The machine to machine communication is slowly but surely increasing.
