This white paper, based on original IBM research with analysis by IDC, offers a Mobile Infrastructure Maturity Model and documents the best practices and characteristics of organizations that are leaders.
Building a mobile collaboration or bring-your-own-device solution requires three things: mobile applications, the mobile devices themselves and the network that underpins them both. Often, the network and its capabilities take a back seat to applications and devices—which can ultimately lead to poor performance or an inflexible infrastructure. Find out how to develop the type of network that truly supports mobile devices, applications and unified communications programs, thereby establishing the foundation for stronger mobile solutions.
End users are demanding their own devices in the workplace, making IT the shepherds of a potentially unruly flock? The good news is IT can embrace BYOD with security and confidence given the right preparation and technology??
The major trends challenging IT organizations today are the increasing dissimilarities and hybridization of platforms inside and outside the organization. And the rush to deploy SaaS applications and the explosion in smart phone and tablet devices that users are bringing to work for personal productivity. This fractured identity environment results in significant management challenges for IT, and frustration and lower productivity for users forced to remember multiple usernames and passwords.
Unified identity architecture ensures your on-premise Active Directory infrastructure can be securely leveraged to quickly bring servers (UNIX, Linux, and Windows), applications (on-premise, SaaS, and mobile) and endpoints (Mac and Mobile devices) into line with security best practice and compliance. This paper will cover the practical path of unified identity management across multiple platforms including data center, cloud, and mobile.
