Why IT management is harder than ever
Remember the good-old-days, when IT owned all of the equipment and software? That's all changed. Now, employees bring their own mobile devices to work and use them both for personal and business activities. How do you safely provide access?
To manage all of this, you're responsible for an alphabet soup of functions:
Mobile Application Management (MAM). Getting the right apps out to the right users, while securing and updating those apps.
Mobile Device Management (MDM). Now that you have the apps, what parts of the acquisition, provisioning, configuration, management, and decommissioning are you going to take on?
Mobile Network Performance Management (MNPM). All of this will impact your enterprise wireless networks: increase the load, increase availability requirements, and increase the security risks. How do you optimize and monitor?
Telecom Expense Management (TEM). And what is the all really costing you, including your global telecom infrastructure, added security, service contracts, BYOD complications, and policy enforement?
