Less than a year ago, analysts’ predictions had mobility enthusiasts believing doomsday was approaching for the mobile device management (MDM) industry. At the 2013 Gartner Security and Risk Management Summit, a panel of analysts told attendees that the bring your own device (BYOD) phenomenon would lead to slashed prices, plummeting sales and the death of an industry. “Mobile device management is in chaos right now, and I think this market is going to die,” Gartner analyst John Girard told attendees (as reported by CRN.com). Girard predicted a shift toward application-level management necessitated by the BYOD trend and employee resistance to management of personal devices.
A Google Trends search for “BYOD” reveals it is a fairly new term, appearing in news publications for the first time in late 2011. BYOD is one part of a much larger, deeper-rooted trend: The consumerization of IT, which can be traced back to the early 2000s. Around that time, most everyone had a personal computer, which enabled them to work from home after hours – and to realize the benefits of using the devices that they had carefully chosen and were comfortable using, rather than the corporate devices their IT departments had issued them.
BYOD and the consumerization of IT continued to grow as devices became cheaper and more connected. Where IT leaders were once solely concerned with reining in all the unapproved devices accessing the corporate network, a recent Intel and readwrite report that shows 49 percent of U.S. IT managers “strongly agree that BYOD improves worker productivity.” The next era of BYOD has arrived, and IT departments are thinking about it as a strategic value-ad
Organizations that invest in proprietary applications and data
for competitive advantage in their industries only succeed by
making those investments available to employees, customers,
and partners that drive revenue and opportunity. Securing
those investments requires a fresh perspective as the types
of devices accessing the cloud datacenter are changing rapidly
and new workloads, such as VDI desktops, are appearing more
regularly alongside server workloads. These changes alter the
potential attacks and potential threats to datacenters whose
security primarily stands firm at the perimeter, however, within
the data center the security is weak.
By combining VMware NSX with the AirWatch Tunnel and/or
VMware Horizon View, organizations are able to bridge the
device to datacenter security gap in a way that both increases
the overall security of the cloud datacenter and makes it far
simpler to manage security through defining and delegating
application and services to specific users. This
Today as customers increasingly turn to digital channels to research products, shop and purchase--and as employees arrive in the workplace conditioned by engaging consumer Web mobile and social experiences-- organizations can't afford to be left behind because of legacy investments.

Business travelers in the U.S. will take close to 500 million trips in 2016. That means, every day, nearly 40,000 people are booking ground transportation¹. Meanwhile, a stream of devices and applications are emerging to help travelers get to their destinations in more efficient, safe, and affordable ways. This constantly-changing landscape can leave your team lost, fighting other business travelers for space and trying to keep up with the best apps. And lost is the last place your team should be, especially when they’re traveling for work.
Is there that much of a future for magnetic spinning disk? Even if manufacturers could move to 30,000 rpm disks with better areal density, the constraints in the engineering and physical capabilities of magnetic disks will still put them orders of magnitude behind flash-based systems in overall performance terms.

Subject lines can be one of the most important elements of your email program. It’s your first (and maybe your last) impression on your recipients. It’s what determines your email response and engagement. However, many marketers will spend far more time on the content of the email and ignore the importance of the subject line. After all, an awesome email is worthless if it’s never seen. That’s why it’s so important to know how to create amazingly effective subject lines that will get your email opened.

In many cases, the ability to quickly create and deploy new solutions, often using innovative technologies, is what sets one organization apart from its competitors.

Aberdeen recently polled our analysts in the IT infrastructure group to determine the key performance indicators that set Best-in-Class information technology organizations apart from their competition. We collected data from our application performance management, cloud, virtualization, and business continuity practices, and found that Best-in-Class companies are superior when it comes to staff training, documentation, data analysis, and processes top organizations take, develop, and carry out to earn their Best-in-Class status and enable their organizations to succeed.
You set aside hours every week for them to train, you tie learning to performance objectives, and you talk about their progress regularly. But then you see the total usage hours and you’re, well, underwhelmed. Maybe your team doesn’t need training afterall? Not so fast.
Fact: Training pays. Invest in your employees and that investment comes right back to you. In one survey, 85 percent of workers indicated that employer-provided training increased their own workplace loyalty. The same survey showed that workers who trained just one hour per week saved 1.8 hours per week—or 83.7 hours per year—through productivity gains.
