Security is certainly the most important issue within enterprise mobility for Indra Tjandra, Principal Architect for Enterprise Systems, T-Mobile USA, at the moment. The implications of BYOD for data protection, and data management, within organisations are considered some of the biggest challenges brought on by emerging mobile technology.
Indra lists building secure mobile apps, increasing customer satisfaction and improving employee productivity as the main three factors which drive the implementation of mobile solutions for T-Mobile. Additionally, he reflects on his predictions for the progression and evolution of enterprise mobility over the next five years at Enterprise Mobility Exchange, Las Vegas.
Ed Durbin, Director – Retail Solutions, AirWatch was joined by practitioners from HOLLY HUNT, Caterpillar and Shell at the Enterprise Mobility Exchange for an interactive panel discussion around aspects of mitigating mobile security risk and BYOD such as policy, governance, mobile device management and end user engagement.
Each panellist brought their unique experiences in mobility to the discussion - from HOLLY HUNT mobilising a select group of employees to large scale initiatives at Shell and Caterpillar - the latter connecting 600-800 devices per month to corporate systems, with a 17,000 mobile workforce that is largely ‘BYOD’.
