But with the introduction of Apple’s iPhone and competitor operating systems like Google’s Android and Palm’s Pre/Pixi now offering similarly rich user experiences, email marketers have a huge opportunity to reach consumers anywhere, any time, on their mobile devices.

The year 2011 ended with a staggering 5.9 billion mobile phone subscriptions, especially significant considering that the total world population is around 7.011 billion. Of course, a direct comparison is not fair since many people have multiple subscriptions, but it represents a window into the pervasiveness of these devices and how they are an integral part of people’s lives today. For enterprises, this also represents the impending end to the old computing era and the emergence of the mobile worker.
Enabling mobility in the workplace is a top-of-mind goal for decision-makers within every organization. This necessity is brought about by the consumerization of IT and the requirement to develop policies to manage the “bring-your-own-device” (BYOD) trend.
By 2014, smartphones and tablets will put power in the pockets of a billion global consumers, including your employees and partners and customers. However, mobile is not simply another device for IT to support with a shrunken website or a screen-scraped application. Rather, mobile is the visible manifestation of a much broader shift to systems of engagement that marry physical context and digital intelligence to deliver service directly into a person's hands. This shift will add value and take cost out of every business service, workflow process, and business application. But mobile engagement will also require wholesale changes to your app design, service delivery, IT skills, technology assets, and even your business model. This report lays out a vision for mobile engagement and introduces the strategic elements developed further in The CIO's Mobile Engagement playbook.
Mobility and consumerization are little more than buzzwords without the applications that drive business activities. A successful enterprise mobility strategy places priority on applications first, mapping their mission to the variety of use cases out in the field. This paper describes how you can simplify application mobilization with Citrix.
Enterprise Strategy Group shares why client-side deduplication is the best. Dedupe 2.0 leverages intelligence and awareness at the source, backup server, and storage device. In these scenarios, the awareness of what data is already in the deduplicated storage and the discernment to send new data or not is performed within the production server instead of the backup server or deduplicated storage. Hence, network savings begin at the production server and backups are significantly faster since only changed data is transmitted from the production server to the storage solution.
The BYOD demand was initially created by the popularity of the iPhone and the iPad from Apple. Relying on the closed iOS operating environment, these devices presented a fairly straightforward challenge for businesses that wanted to allow access to corporate apps without compromising the security of company data.

With more mobile workers using personal smartphones and tablets to conduct business, 2011 is being heralded as the year of mobile apps in the enterprise. The benefits of mobile apps initiatives will far outweigh the challenges of getting them into the enterprise, in the form of increased work productivity and customer response, analysts say.
The explosive growth and superior performance of the iPhone and iPad has changed the definition of mobile computing. As more employees ask to use their iPhones and iPads for business purposes, companies are facing increased demand to provide enterprise application management.
