Announcing Mobile Management Month [Manifesto]

Announcing Mobile Management Month [Manifesto]

We're kicking off Mobile Management Month!

The iPhone and iPad are revolutionizing business as we know it, causing companies to throw out old playbooks that mandated strict control over every piece of technology in the workplace. That revolution is liberating workers everywhere to choose their own devices, pick the best apps, and enjoy using technology in the office for the first time since… well ever.

All this month, we’re going to spend time highlighting the businesses helping to power that revolution: companies that take iPhones and iPads into the office and let them drive and control all the enterprise systems in place in your workplace.

The companies helping power this revolution do so in different but equally important ways. Some help you collaborate on choosing apps, some plug your iPhone or iPad into powerful collaboration tools, and some secure confidential data so that it can be kept safe on your device.

Our goal this month is to make it easy for everyone involved in this revolution – executives, IT leaders, managers, and individual employees – to understand the power and potential for liberating tasks from the clunky processes of the past using the iOS and iOS apps.

Each day, we’ll highlight one of the companies that’s helping drive the radical evolution of the workplace – telling you who they are, what solutions they offer, and how they stack up against each other and against the needs of different types of businesses – all so that you and your company can easily pick the software you need to ride this wave of change.

We’re calling it Mobile Management Month – and you’ll want to check back each day as we cut through the confusion of acronyms, products, and techniques that is often a side-effect of integrating the iPhone and iPad into new, existing, and even outdated IT systems.

Miss a day? Want to compare two companies? No problem. Just check head over to our Mobile Management Month Archive.
