As the bring your own device trend (BYOD) gathers momentum, IT managers can no longer stem the tide.
Users are bringing their tablets, smartphones and new applications into the enterprise, so IT departments must now have to contend with these new endpoints without breaching data security or breaking the bank. The BYOD trend presents opportunities to empower remote users and make the workplace device-agnostic, but it also poses challenges in terms of security, identity management and more. In this Enterprise Mobility University, we focus on the key questions that infrastructure managers, systems and virtualization administrators, and IT purchasers must consider before introducing BYOD to their environments.
This video-driven university outlines the considerations for IT managers and helps weigh the pros and cons of introducing and managing these technologies. Each multimedia classroom will address a key area of the consumerization of IT: security policies for diverse endpoints, BYOD and virtual desktops, mobile device management practices, and the basics of application virtualization.
