Driving Mobility Through MDM

Driving Mobility Through MDM

Peter Frankl, VP of Lifecycle Management here at Absolute Software, recently shared his experience with Mobile Enterprise Magazine on the topic of Driving Mobility Through MDM. Peter uses a driving analogy to share why going automatic trumps manual when it comes to managing a corporate mobility program.

If organizations needed a license to drive their mobile device management (MDM) strategy, many would still be working on their learner’s permit. A lot of businesses are still going on test drives as they transition from basic MDM to more complex strategies that support bring your own device (BYOD), corporately-owned personally enabled (CoPE) and other user-centric models.

Peter shares 3 main tips, which he goes into in detail in the article. These tips are:

  • Stop Treating Portable Devices Differently
  • Forget Devices – Think Users
  • Secure Access Not Data
These tips highlight the importance of not boxing mobile device management as something “different.” Users want the same experience on their mobile as on a desktop, so your MDM policy should focus on business-enablement and user productivity.
