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.
You didn't mention health and workout metrics - oximeter, heart rate, blood pressure, pedometer, GPS, ascent/descent. I want a watch that looks like that, is easy to use and has the kitchen sink in features.
BYOD is an easy subject to have strong opinions about and that resulted in a very robust Twitter chat hour yesterday. The Tweets were flying: 279 of them from 38 rowdy participants.
The main question asked if BYOD is on the wane or plateauing based on a couple of CIO.com stories from senior online writer Tom Kaneshige. One cited a California court ruling that employees must be reimbursed for business calls made from personal phones.
I think for millennials and younger workers, mixing work and play is SOP....but unwinding is important. There's also a relationship between working at home and BYOD where you're essentially your own helpdesk and IT equipment supplier. In a way, it's taking ownership of your own IT needs.
The number of small/medium businesses in the world is growing. This is, of course, recognized by governments – many Prime Ministers and Presidents are looking to SMB’s to lead their countries out of recession.
I see this trend inside HP marketing. We are increasingly using SMB’s for campaign material generation, newsletter generation, and so on.
