The cacophony of ringtones from mobile phones in my office doesn’t annoy me like it does others. In fact, I sort of look at ringtones as a sociological experiment; when the father-of-four with a dedicated wardrobe of Dockers and a slavish devotion to beige, fuel-efficient sedans picks up when Prince’s “Erotic City” seranades the office from his HTC, it makes me realize that there’s more to this guy than meets the eye. The question is, do I want to meet the other half of that personality. Topic for a different time…
But ringtones, phones and habits are all a matter of personality, and we’re starting to see more individuality from people not just because they’re using their mobile devices more, but because it’s so much more common to have people using their personal device for work. “Bring-your-own-device”, or BYOD, is likely going to be the main way workers get their mobile needs meet.
This brings with it a host of IT challenges, and that’s the topic for our upcoming Mobile Insights Webcast, “Best Practices for Securing and Managing your Android Devices“. It will be on Wednesday, July 18, and will feature solutions specifically for Android devices. In the webcast, we’ll walk through proven methodologies for provisioning in-house applications and data on Android devices without affecting user access to personal information. Find out how you can minimize the IT resources required to manage your organization’s Android devices. Specifically, our host, Peter Mitchelmore (Mobility Solution Principal for SAP), will cover:
