IBM has published a new thought leadership whitepaper, “Preparing your network for the mobile onslaught – How networks can overcome the security, delivery challenges posed by mobile devices.” While Mobile Device Management (MDM) is important, the network is often overlooked. Today’s mobile devices are dependent on access to the network and solutions such as wi-fi and Virtual Private Network (VPN) are critical.
“Only by providing a consistent, high quality end user experience can the organization fulfill mobility’s potential to bring value to the business by improving productivity and competitiveness. The network has a critical role to play in meeting this goal. Networks will need to deliver new levels of security while easing onboarding and access for legitimate users. They will have to deliver a higher level of performance. They will need specialized tools to improve device manageability and control management costs. ”
I’ll be traveling to San Diego next week to participate in MobileCON conference. IBM will have a large presence at the conference and I’ll be presenting and working at the IBM booth at the product showcase.
