Mobile Computing is a generic term describing your ability to use technology 'untethered', that is not physically connected, or in remote or mobile (non static) environments. The term is evolved in modern usage such that it requires that the mobile computing activity be connected wirelessly to and through the internet or to and through a private network. This connection ties the mobile device to centrally located information and/or application software through the use of battery powered, portable, and wireless computing and communication devices.

With companies embracing mobility to maintain competitive advantage in the digital era, information security threats have increased exponentially. Userfriendly technologies such as mobile devices, mobile apps, and cloud storage are often hacker-friendly too, creating opportunities for cybercriminals to covertly infiltrate company data. This opens the door to data loss, reputational damage, loss of proprietary information – not to mention the associated regulatory penalties and potential legal fees. IT bears the brunt of responsibility for information security, yet according to Forrester, internal incidents top the list of security breach causes in 2014.

Innovation in business mobility is adding up to opportunity for the enterprise— opportunity to accelerate employee productivity, increase collaboration, and streamline business processes through mobile applications. At the same time, IT organizations are keen to control costs and maintain safeguards around their
corporate information. With the goal of striking a balance between opportunity and control, increasing numbers of IT decision makers are adopting enterprise mobility management (EMM) solutions.
But how do you know your organization is poised to make the move to EMM, or if you should be leveraging more from an existing EMM solution? Here are five cues to consider that the time is right to adopt EMM for your organization.
We work at home. We take conference calls in the backseat of a taxi. We even tap out emails from 30,000 feet. Mobility is radically redefining the way we work, because it’s redefining where and when we can work. It’s why Keith Perske, executive managing director of workplace innovation for Collier’s, thinks it’s time
to adopt a new description of the workplace: “Today’s workplace is an integrated set of locations, technology, programs and work practices that connect people and enable employees to contribute and be productive. That’s the new workplace definition.”
And with the emergence of this modern workplace, users are expecting a mobile experience that’s simple, convenient, and a boon to their productivity. In order to deliver on these expectations, IT organizations are making business mobility a
priority in their investment decisions. Which is why we’ve identified five potent mobility trends that warrant attention and also present opportunities to transform the enterprise
The mobile office is a reality in today’s world. According to the Philadelphia Business Journal, telecommuting has increased more than 73 percent since 2005, meaning a burgeoning number of employees are accessing corporate documents and data on their mobile devices. In a recent IDG Enterprise survey, 82 percent of respondents reported that at least some colleagues have completed tasks from mobile devices, whether those devices are managed or not.
One of the most common questions being asked by many customers recently is “How does VMware AirWatch support Office 365?” Many ask if AirWatch can control access to Office 365 (O365) not only on their corporate desktop systems, but most importantly on their mobile devices.
Fortunately, AirWatch provides tremendous support to help organizations leverage O365 on their mobile devices and our recent integration with VMware® Identity Manager provides an industry-first adaptive access control framework to ensure that all work applications, including O365, can only be accessed on managed and compliant devices.

At the end of last year, the US alone had 435 million smart mobile devices in use — that’s 35% higher than the total US population. Among smartphone users, 68% use messaging apps regularly. And 84% of smartphone engagement with apps is spent communicating via text, email, and social channels.
What does this mean for brands? The current state of CX is broken. Brands focus too much on channel and transaction, ignoring the customer’s preferences, and, ultimately, negatively affecting their bottom line.
But wherever there’s a disconnect, there’s also opportunity. In increasing numbers brands are turning to messaging platforms and apps to offer more efficient, convenient customer service.
