Mobility Management Defined (Kind Of)

March 13, 2014 by Matt East

Before I dive into this touchy subject, I want to encourage colleagues, partners, customers, potential buyers, analysts, and even competitors, to jump in with their comments below; I’d love to hear some insight from outside the MOBI walls. You’ll see quickly that I don’t have all the answers. Recently, I’ve come up with a surefire way to give myself a quick headache: I simply start thinking about the various acronyms used in the mobility management industry today. Using MOBI as an example, Gartner included us on the MMS Magic Quadrant last year; according to the quadrant, MMS stands for Managed Mobility Services. However, to help with the confusion, the Gartner IT Glossary states that MMS stands for Mobility Managed Service. Years prior to this, we were ranked in the AOTMP State of the Industry Report as the top WMM (Wireless…

Implement a BYOD Program Your Employees Can Understand

February 4, 2014 by MOBI

  The Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) trend is the biggest technology issue facing today’s workplaces. Today’s employees are simply more comfortable working on their own mobile devices., and the trend isn’t going away. Employers can either embrace it or get left behind as their employees jump ship for companies that have BYOD programs in place. Most employers are choosing the latter option, with more than 50% of employers expected to have a BYOD program by 2017. BYOD programs do change a work environment, however. Implement BYOD in your own business so employees easily understand these rules: 1. Let Employees Know What Responsibilities BYOD Will Put on Them BYOD programs make employees responsible and even liable for some things that were previously on the employer. Make employees aware of the legal implications for them in implementing BYOD before starting the program…

BYOD Costs to Triple by 2016

November 7, 2013 by MOBI

Gartner reported that by 2016, it will cost enterprises $300 to internally manage each Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) line per employee; it costs $100 per employee to manage BYOD lines today. Most companies believe that by going BYOD they will save their company the cost of managing devices and user data. Unfortunately, this has proved untrue in the world of mobility. As BYOD skyrockets in popularity with companies and employees, the costs of BYOD become apparent. Not only do companies need to consider any stipends they will offer, but they also need to think about security, Mobile Device Management (MDM), and support. Many companies end up switching back to corporate-managed lines to save on hidden costs. BYOD isn’t the villain in this scenario. When managed correctly, BYOD is actually a perfect fit for companies looking to save on device…
