intelligent technology

If you follow tech news at all, you’ve probably seen or heard something about job-stealing robots. While we could all use a little more time away from work, don’t expect EmployeeBot 3000 to be sitting behind your desk anytime soon. Companies aren’t using Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning to get rid of workers—they’re using it to make work easier for them. We’re still a long way away from robot workers becoming the norm. Even early automation adopters understand the value of human interaction and are using this technology to refocus their workforce, not replace it. Helping your employees understand and use AI and machine learning comes with substantial benefits: Minimized Employee Burnout Organizations can use intelligent technology tools to automate mundane tasks and take them off employees’ plates entirely, increasing job satisfaction and quality of work.[tweet] In enterprise mobility…

Virtualization Across the Nation

May 9, 2017 by Matt Louden

virtualization

Modern mobility programs are constantly challenged by end-user demands for the latest devices and technology. Unfortunately, that usually means running multiple Operating Systems (OSs) and applications simultaneously. While this has traditionally created gaps in program security, today’s enterprise mobility efforts have a safer solution: virtualization. For the first time, government-approved virtualization resides on a smartphone. The National Security Agency (NSA) just added a modified version of the HTC A9 to its Commercial Solutions for Classified (CSFC) list and is actively suggesting that all other businesses should take advantage of this technology too. So, what exactly is virtualization? Virtualization Explained Businesses that use this technology can create and test these virtual reproductions to boost their mobility program’s agility, efficiency, and flexibility in a way that minimizes IT risks.[tweet this] Essentially, virtualization is a process that creates software-based copies of mobile applications,…

Change: Mobile Security’s Only Constant

April 28, 2017 by Mitch Berry

mobile security

Managing program security is one of the toughest jobs in enterprise mobility; nobody needs constantly changing acronyms that make things harder to understand. In recent years, mobile security has evolved from Mobile Device Management (MDM) to Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM), and soon Unified Endpoint Management (UEM) will be the industry standard. MDM When employees started bringing their smartphones to work, enterprises needed a way to remotely configure and control security settings without negatively impacting workforce productivity. It wasn’t long before MDM became a hot commodity. For the first time, companies could secure mobile device access to sensitive internal networks and resources. Despite its initial success, organizations quickly discovered that MDM had inherent limitations. For example, if a program administrator needed to delete application data off an employee device, they had to eliminate all that application’s information – even the user’s…

software interface

Making the decision to update your software’s User Interface (UI) is bold. If rushed through without proper research and product testing, the results can be disastrous. If done well, however, something else happens: every dollar invested creates 100 more for the company – that’s a 9,900% Return on Investment (ROI)! Designing a software product’s new look is a complicated, multi-stage process we discussed in-depth a few weeks ago. Regardless of the industry or product’s intended use, an effective UI needs to be three things: configurable, consistent, and flexible. Configurable You new look should be configurable and customizable. Ensuring a UI satisfies unique user needs and integrations properly focuses your software and can inspire new levels of interest in the product. It also transforms the interface into a foundation from which new logical, intuitive end-user features can be built and launched….
