CASE STUDY: Deploying a mobile device for use at a gas-processing facility where any spark could be catastrophic was an interesting challenge for Australian managed mobility vendor, VoicePlus.
VoicePlus IT has deployed the Deputy application to 700 iPads across Australia utilising Microsoft Intune MDM and Apple DEP programs.
VoicePlus has utilised the AirWatch MDM environment and Apple Volume Purchase Program to rapidly deploy Kronos and Aptos apps to over 700 retail stores Australia-wide.
Many enterprises are grossly under-utilising the capabilities of Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) and should look beyond smartphones and tablets to enable digital business opportunities, says Gartner.
Microsoft has added 'Android for Work' to its Intune MDM platform with significant benefits for companies with Android fleets, or both BYOD and Corporate-owned devices.
Mobile management has traditionally fallen into the lap of the IT department for many Australian businesses. Yet so many mobility tasks are not really IT… Is outsourcing mobile management the answer for the time-poor IT department?
By the end of 2017 demand for mobile apps will grow at least five times faster than internal IT has capacity to deliver them, predicts Gartner. The need to manage these apps is driving interest in Mobile App Management (MAM) tools.
Only 38% of Australian companies currently remove data when employees leave or devices are disposed of, exposing them to a range of corporate security risks.
By 2018, the number of organisations managing desktop PCs with an EMM system will rise from less than 1% today to 40%, according to Gartner.
