The recent Meltdown and Spectre announcements have seen wide media coverage this past week and prompted a fair amount of extra work for IT teams across the globe.

If you work in IT, I suspect that you have recently spent a fair amount of time ensuring your systems are patched against these vulnerabilities. However, I suspect that you have also spent a considerable amount of time dealing with enquiries from others asking about these vulnerabilities and your own organisation's risk.

Often we can overlook the need for the right level of skills to successfully administer our EMM software on an ongoing basis. Being trained on your EMM or MDM solution is crucial when dealing with new technology, so that your leading-edge technology stays that way and doesn’t become a bleeding-edge project instead. It will give you the required knowledge needed to install, configure, deploy and manage the solution effectively, but it can also have wide reaching opportunity gains throughout the business.

Once you find an Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) solution that can manage your mobile estate, whilst giving end users access to data easily and securely around the clock, do you as an IT administrator, just install it, sit back and relax? The answer is probably no.

The role of CIOs and IT departments has transformed dramatically over time. With technology playing such a huge part in driving change and solving business issues, IT affects every department of an organisation. At the same time, it seems that IT and technology decisions are increasingly being influenced by non-IT staff.

With technology playing such a huge part in driving change and solving business issues, IT affects every department of an organisation. At the same time, it seems that IT and technology decisions are increasingly being influenced by non-IT staff. LinkedIn recently conducted a survey of 2,300 professionals who have a say in IT budgets – and 72% of them did not work in IT.

A look at how organisations can approach understanding the drivers and the processes involved in their mobility projects, and planning for how to ensure overall project success.

I recently gave a presentation at the Enterprise Mobility Management Conference in London, where I discussed the typical lifecycle of a mobility project and what ensures a project's success. Before embarking on a mobility project, I think it’s important for organisations to understand the processes involved in the project, and to consider what they want to obtain from it.

During mobility projects, one of the issues that comes up time and time again is the total cost of ownership, or TCO. Mobility projects are long-term and there is a wide range of associated costs that organisations need to consider. So what are these costs and how can we maximise efficiency for long-term gain to the organisation?

A new survey shows how mobile workers feel pressure when handling work at home - and personal matters at work

A survey by Bridgeway partner MobileIron has revealed that 58% of mobile workers feel guilty about mixing their work and personal lives. The study, which surveyed more than 3,500 professionals across six different countries who use a mobile device for work, highlights the growing trend of ‘Generation Mobile’ or ‘Gen M’ – mobile workers who are aged 18-34 or people with children under 18.

A recent court ruling in Texas has raised some very interesting issues around enterprise mobility management (EMM) and BYOD. Saman Rajaee, who was working as a salesman for homebuilder Design Tech Homes, sued the company after they remotely wiped personal data from his iPhone shortly after he had handed in his notice. It is clear that no documented mobile IT policy was in place. The case was dismissed in federal court but is still pending at state court level.

Back in 2011, the Department of Health published a progress report from its National Mobile Health Worker Project, which was designed to examine the potential technical and business benefits of mobile working in community health services. It’s interesting to note that while the technology has evolved since then, the challenges of integrating mobile into the day-to-day running of the NHS remain consistent...

Lack of consistent mobile Web access is hampering business activity - but what can be done about it?

These days, people expect decent internet access wherever they go, whether they’re on a train or at the pub. However, we’ve all experienced the frustration of not being able to log on when we’re out and about. The fact remains that the quality of mobile network coverage varies greatly across the UK.  Many parts of the country, mostly (but not exclusively) rural areas, suffer from poor or practically non-existent coverage, while the quality of mobile coverage on Britain’s road, rail and underground networks is failing to meet commuters’ expectations. As more and more business is conducted online and on the move, this lack of connectivity is hurting the UK economy.

The first in a series of blogs that look at how businesses can change the way they manage their IT to accommodate the mobility wave.

Business IT is undergoing fundamental changes right now – changes that are as fundamental and far-reaching as when your company first connected to the Internet back in the 90s.  What’s more, these changes are probably not part of your existing IT strategy, but they’re happening all the same.
