Will Enteprise Mobile become Enterprise IT?

Will Enteprise Mobile become Enterprise IT?

Will Enterprise Mobile become Enterprise IT?  Where are you on your Enterprise Mobility journey? What does a mobile workspace look like? How do you give your employees a great user experience wherever they are but keep the data and device secure? 

These and many other questions were discussed at the 4th Enterprise Mobility Management Conference in London last week/yesterday, where over 150 IT security professionals attended to learn about industry best practices, hear updates on the latest critical thinking around mobile technology and network with their peers. 

It was Bridgeway’s first time at the EMM Conference and we found it to be an informative, insightful event. Along with other exhibitors, we networked with many large enterprises and discussed with them their current mobile IT projects and challenges and how we could help support these. 

Our very own MD, Jason Holloway presented in the afternoon on “Understanding the Mobility Lifecycle” where he shared his insights and analysis from over two hundred customer mobility projects deployed by Bridgeway. The session focused on the mobility journey of an enterprise and highlighted how a project transitions from tactical to strategic, the true cost of ownership for choosing mobile devices as well as the device management lifecycle. Jason also showed a live demo of implementing Apple DEP on his iPad which was greatly received. 

Another highlight was Khawar Hameed’s talk on “Dissecting Enterprise Mobility.” The senior lecturer from Staffordshire University discussed the transformative impact of mobility and focused on some key concepts, trends, and directions that underpin and influence enterprise mobility. What was most interesting was the way in which he discussed developments in Higher Education linked to knowledge and skills development in this field to deliver a ‘mobile ready’ workforce. Something we need now and for years to come as we mobilise our business with mobile technology. 

Delegates also had the chance to ask questions to the panels of speakers in more interactive sessions, with questions on topics such as app testing environments, to advance threat management strategies.

These events are an excellent way to learn more about the latest trends and technologies arising in Enterprise Mobility.  Organisations want to fully mobilise their business and to do so it’s vital to keep up to date with what’s new, what’s working well, what’s yet to come and what the future may look like in this space. 

All in all, a great event.
