Enterprises these days usually provide employees with devices (company owned personally enabled – COPE) or allow employees to use their own devices (bring your own device – BYOD). What many people don’t realize is that enterprise mobility goes beyond developing a few mobile apps, allowing access to emails through mobile devices and browsing web apps on mobile devices.
Every organization needs to have a clear strategy when allowing mobility in their enterprise. First and foremost, you need to create a policy around device usage in your organization. A well constructed policy helps in keeping your enterprise information safe and secure. This policy should include
Which device platforms can be used (iOS, Android, etc.)
Which versions can be used
Whether rooted or jailbroken devices can be used
Whether to allow BYOD or COPE (or both)
Whether to allow access to company resources based on connectivity, location and time
Once the policy is created, you need to identify the tools that will help you enforce it. In this session Ruwan and Dilshan will share their expert advice on how to follow a winning path to achieve enterprise mobility.
