Blueprint for the Future of Enterprise Mobility
Moving the BYOD Agenda Forward
We know that BYOD is here to stay and is happening everywhere, with employees in all kinds of roles, in every vertical and in every country using their personal devices to access corporate data.
If it isn’t already a priority issue for your business, it should be. For CIOs, managing such ‘Bring Your Own’ behavior is a huge challenge that is now being exacerbated by the trend spreading beyond mobile devices: in their attempts to find easier and more convenient ways of doing their jobs, employees are also finding ways to bring their own PCs to work. And usage of employees own devices is also driving them to find new document collaboration applications to be able to flexibly move work between their devices, and amongst groups. The new challenge for IT is to strike the balance between meeting the needs and requirements of the consumerized employee to avoiding driving behaviours out the line of sight and control of IT, while at the same time keeping corporate data secure.
This dual requirement means that demand is moving further than mobile device management (MDM) strategies, towards policies that take advantage of the specific capabilities of smartphones and tablets around app usage. Those vendors in the enterprise mobility management (EMM) space are adjusting and extending their offerings accordingly, providing ways to deliver corporate app stores and mobile application management (MAM) capabilities. Some are also extending the definition of ‘mobile device’ to managing laptops, and finding ways to manage the whole mobile computing estate from a single place.
This event from Ovum will provide the blueprint for CIOs to take away and implement a robust mobility strategy that addresses the challenges of consumerization. It will present our latest research into both the supply side and demand side of the BYOX effect, and give advice on best practice vendor selection, governance and implementation strategies. By showcasing real life case studies, we will also give delegates the chance to learn from the experiences of their peers who have been implementing policies within their own organizations.
- Access the latest insight into the BYOX landscape including the current state of the mobile device management and mobile application management landscape, best practice management of employee data privacy requirements, taxation parameters and device support. Hear about the latest developments in BYOX management, from multiple ondevice personas, softphones and hybrid approaches to virtualisation and next generation network management
- Understand how to value increased employee productivity and satisfaction to complement TCO models for investment in BYOX programs. Create a working blueprint that you can take back to your business to drive programs to support the consumerization agenda in your business. Don’t be part of the statistic of those businesses ignoring BYOD!
- Explore the latest data on what enterprise apps employees are using on their devices at work, understand the drivers for this employee behaviour and ensure you deliver a program that effectively balances this with your security, governance and cost requirements
- Is BYOX right for your organization? Our expert panellists will engage in a free, frank and open debate centred on the case for and against the implementation of BYOX. This is a great opportunity to come away with a no-nonsense assessment of what BYOD could mean for you.
- Hear what developments and challenges from both the supply and demand sides of the consumerization market can be expected over the next 12 to 48 months and how you can prepare for them?
