12639: Help! The Mobile Device Invasion Is Here!

Tuesday, February 5, 2013: 9:30 AM-10:30 AM
Plaza B, Lobby Level (San Francisco Hilton)
Speaker: Naveed Makhani(IBM Corporation)

Mobile devices have taken off at an astonishing rate, and that trend is only going to continue. This explosion is certainly making its presence felt in the corporate world - in fact, the average forecasts among industry predictions is that 40 percent of endpoints will be mobile devices by 2015.  IT needs to take control of the situation quickly, given the growing trend of executives accessing email and documents with their smartphones, sales people choosing tablets when they hit the road, business line managers viewing critical application dashboards as they walk the halls, and front-line employees conducting transactions with customers using credit card reader attachments. But what exactly does it mean to "gain control"? What policies need to change? What automation options are available today for managing and securing these devices? How do you deal with a blend of OS platforms, uses, and employee-owned vs. company owned devices?

Join Mobile Device Management expert Naveed Makhani to explore these and other topics of interest while gaining insight into:
    •    Key market developments and the challenges they bring
    •    Understanding and managing the disruptive paradigm shift from “the power of the IT administrator” to “the user is king”
    •    Emerging best practices in enterprise Mobile Device Management (MDM) and IBM’s unified device management approach.
