re: Forget Standardization -- Embrace BYOD
I agree, standardization is a thing of the past with BYOD. IT departments are going to have to get used to the fact that BYOD means very little standardization, and if they want to 'standardize' then they are going to have to get inventive. Our hospital is a good example of this; as we are taking a HIPAA compliant texting API by Tigertext called TigerConnect, and putting it together with a secure email API and the Dropbox API to make a security app that all the staff, interns and doctors will install on their phones and tablets to ensure HIPAA compliance and security. This app will work on all platforms, so in a sense itGs a form of standardization in order to meet HIPAA compliance.

re: Forget Standardization -- Embrace BYOD
I agree. People are creatures of habit. They have preferences for various devices, and if they are more comfortable working with a particular one, they will be more productive. This also cuts down on costs for the company.

re: Forget Standardization -- Embrace BYOD
Why do you need a MDM to enforce access/authorization rules? Especially when you even stated - the corporation does not own the device.

The real way is to enforce application access control - based on corporate access rules.

re: Forget Standardization -- Embrace BYOD
MDM is only one aspect of BYOD management. But what about helping IT staff support a wide range of devices, or ensuring that employees can connect to their work applications?

What's needed is a way to deliver applications to all types of devices while minimizing hassles for IT. For example, Ericom's AccessNow HTML5 RDP client enables remote users to securely connect from iPads, iPhones, Android devices, Chromebooks and more traditional laptops and PCs to any RDP host, including Terminal Server and VDI virtual desktops, and run their applications and desktops in a browser. AccessNow doesn't require any software installation on the end user device G just an HTML5 browser, connection and login credentials. An employee that brings in their own device merely opens their HTML5-compatible browser and connects to the URL given them by the IT admin.

Please note that I work for Ericom

re: Forget Standardization -- Embrace BYOD
Couldn't agree more. People always want to work with the latest and greatest new gadgets. If they're willing to buy it themselves, why would a company not embrace that? Rather than put the money into a standard, and usually outdated, mobile platform, put the money into a MDM and have have happier employees.
