In this paper, we discuss why a bring-your-own-device (BYOD) approach to workforce mobility can be a compromise-free approach, and then how the combined capabilities of Samsung KNOX and
Enterprise Mobility Management from AirWatch by VMware turn this compromise-free approach into reality.
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
This report provides a guide to some of the opportunities that are available for using machine learning in business, and how to overcome some of the key challenges of incorporating machine learning into an analytics strategy. We will discuss the momentum of machine learning in the current analytics landscape, the growing number of modern applications for machine learning, as well as the organizational and technological challenges businesses face when adopting machine learning. We will also look at how two specific organizations are exploiting the opportunities and overcoming the challenges of machine learning as they’ve embarked on their own analytic evolution.
This paper examines the barriers to adoption from an IT and
end-user perspective, and shows how self-service analytics in
general – and SAS Visual Analytics in particular – can eliminate
these barriers. Self-service analytics empowers users to truly
exploit the wealth of data available to them, while ensuring
that the IT organization maintains governance and control
over that data.
The clear benefits of agile development—better collaboration, incremental delivery, early error detection and the elimination of unnecessary work—have made it the default approach for many teams. Agile methods are also being adopted by systems engineering teams to deliver the same benefits. Some developers have questioned whether requirements fall into the category of unnecessary work, and can be cut down or even completely eliminated. Meanwhile, teams developing complex products, systems and regulated IT continue to have requirements-driven legacy processes.
So how does requirements management fit in an agile world? This paper argues that requirements management can bring significant value to agile development in regulated IT and complex product development projects, and sets out the characteristics of an effective requirements management approach in an agile environment.
Agile methods have proven effective for software development and have grown in popularity across a number of software disciplines. Agile methods build capabilities using an iterative approach, as opposed to traditional approaches where requirements are defined early and designs are completed in full before a single line of code is written. Agile incrementally defines requirements with priorities, partial component designs and working systems that evolve through iterations called sprints.
The question remains, however: Do the 12 agile principles apply to more than just software? Agile principles are in line with lean management’s approach. Given that, it seems as though agile principles should directly apply beyond software development. However, the answer is not straightforward, because differences between software and physical components affect how agile is applied. Let’s explore how agile can be applied in light of these differences.
