Mobile App Expert For Enterprise Adoption

Mobile Enterprise Adoption Award: TD Ameritrade

While surfing my favorite site Reddit, I stumbled upon “Sporkmonger” saying that he uses the TD Ameritrade app over the PC. Though I have never used the app, this is an awesome unbiased review. Will 2013 be the year the keyboard goes away?   [–]sporkmonger[S] 1 point 10 days ago Cool, will do if I decide to make the switch. I do a lot of mobile trading though and I really like the TD mobile app for Android. Bizarrely, I’d rather execute trades on my phone because their mobile app is better designed than both the java app and the website. 😛This is great to hear, with something as important as a financial trade. Mobile devices arent just for Angry Birds anymore.Cheers, to my first MEAA winner!Dan DiMassa –...

BrianMadden.com’s three focus areas: Desktop Virtualization, Consumerization, and Enterprise Mobility Management

Mobile Enterprise Adoption news: MEAN Summary: Comparing EMM Enterprise Mobility Management and Desktop Management Consumerization vs IT’s business applications   by Brian Madden  You may remember a few months ago I wrote an article suggesting that the topics of “Desktop Virtualization” and “Consumerization” were merging. I also announced at that time that we intended to merge the contents of our ConsumerizeIT.com website into BrianMadden.com. Even though it’s taken six months, we’ve finally done that. As of today, all content that was on ConsumerizeIT.com is now available via the “Consumerization” tag on BrianMadden.com. In looking through the list of Consumerization articles, it quickly became apparent that we really had two different focus areas on that site: Enterprise Mobility Management (MDM, MAM, BYOD, etc.) and the broader “What does consumerization mean for IT” issue. And then it hit me: We need to break those two areas out when we integrate them with the desktop management content of BrianMadden.com. If you think about it, Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) and Desktop Management are basically the same concept applied to different devices. Desktop Management is about managing devices with traditional OSes like Windows, and EMM is about managing new-style devices with mobile-like OSes like iOS, Android, Blackberry, and Windows Phone OS. Sure, the management styles are different, but they’re both basically the same thing. Then on top of Desktop Virt and EMM, we have this “consumerization” thing that’s the over-arching trend that affects how IT delivers apps and manages devices. While it makes for great conversation, you can’t go out and buy any products that “solve” consumerization per se. Instead you buy specific products for specific subsets of consumerization. (You buy desktop management to deal with Windows and laptops, you buy EMM to deal with phones and tablets, etc.) I’ve always argued that IT is really about providing access to business applications and data. Consumerization flips that model around a bit, but when it comes to actually providing that access, this is where Desktop Virtualization and EMM kick in (again, depending on the device). Long story short, even though we started this website ten years ago to focus on desktop virtualization, in today’s world you really can’t cover desktop virt without also covering EMM. And you can’t cover those two issues without...

Enterprise mobility – are you ready for the ride?

Mobile Enterprise Adoption News MEAN Summary: Enterprise architectures will move from 3 to 4 tier  Mentions 4 points to enterprise mobile: mobile delivery, cloud, social & big data He explains why the development of software will change Enterprise mobility – are you ready for the ride? Consumer mobile devices create countless new opportunities to engage your customers, employees, and business partners at a level never before seen Published 16:35, 11 January 13 My colleague Melissa Parrish recently posted how perpetual connectivity will change how we experience the world. I read this and couldn’t help but get excited about the endless mobile possibilities — but I can see how enterprise leaders are filled with an equal amount of trepidation. Consumer mobile devices create countless new opportunities to engage your customers, employees, and business partners at a level never before seen. As Melissa points out, this will change nearly every facet of how your business operates. Here are the areas that I’m excited about: Enterprise architectures will change from a three-tier model to a four-tier model that incorporates an aggregation/data transformation tier. This will allow existing enterprise infrastructures to react to the new mobile demands on performance and scalability while allowing the enterprise to migrate existing services (public and private) to a cloud-based service-oriented offering. Successful mobile strategies include four key areas: mobile delivery, cloud, social, and big data. The service tier in the new four-tier model will not only federate internal services for mobile consumption but will naturally extend to include third-party services.This statement will cause security leads to block my blog from being accessed within your company, but don’t fret: new security architectures (zero-trust, among others) are being developed with exactly this service-level interaction in mind. The way you develop software must change, and analytics will become your best friend in this transformation. Mobile devices know more about your users than their spouses and close friends do, and the sensors that are being used today are just the tip of the iceberg. Become familiar with the analytics available to parse all of this “big data.” React to the available rapid feedback loops and deliver software updates on a monthly cadence instead of an annual/biannual one. With the proper focus...
