Mobile Computing

Community information
Welcome to the mobile computing community on BrightTALK! With the consumerization of IT and the widespread adoption of mobile devices across the globe, mobile computing has become an important part of many people's lives in a culture of bring your own device (BYOD). With mobile devices doubling as work phones and more employees working from home, businesses need to provide secure access to data and work applications from anywhere at any time. Join this growing community and hear from industry thought leaders in webinars and videos as they share their insight on mobile computing research and trends.

  • Business computing is changing before our eyes. Physical PCs and servers cannot keep pace with the mobile workforces of today or tomorrow. BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) is no longer a “nice to have”, it is a “must have”. The problem most companies face is providing secure and controllable access – anytime, anywhere – to the data, applications, tools and resources required to maintain an enterprise network. DaaS is quickly becoming the leading solution for companies to adopt a comprehensive BYOD policy while actually increasing security and ubiquitous access. Join Nuvestack, the leader in DaaS technology, for an informative and insightful look at what it really takes to implement and manage DaaS as a BYOD strategy.
  • Every year, businesses are making the decision to adopt a Unified Communications platform. Why? The reason is simple – Unified Communications capabilities save companies time and money, and increases productivity.

    Today’s mobile and resource-challenged workers require more freedom and flexibility in how they communicate with their colleagues, teams, partners and customers. Instant Messaging, Presence, Voice and Video Calling, SMS Texting, and Screen Sharing features enable employees to easily connect with their colleagues, partners and customers. Each of these tools have an associated cost, which can add up quickly per user. By removing the a la carte price tags and contracts and rolling all of the tools into one unified platform, both the business and its employees reap the benefits.

    In this webinar, we will cover the following:

    - Typical per-user spend on Screen Share, Video Conferencing, Presence, and IM tools

    - Why businesses are moving to Unified Communications

    - Features of a Unified Communications system

  • A lot has changed in the way we communicate for business. A decade ago, most organizations had employees who came to the office every day, used desktop computers and desk phones, and stopped communicating for work when they went home.

    Today, people communicate for work anywhere, anytime, and on any device. Per Forrester, sixty-six percent of employees use two or more mobile devices for work. And according to Frost & Sullivan, nearly 25 percent of employees work from home or the road. What’s more, the desk phone is not the only business device. Based on a RingCentral survey, 35 percent of employees are using their mobile phones for work even when they are in the office. And nearly 80 percent of employees text for business, with 32 percent reporting that they’ve even closed a business deal via text.

    Even with these undeniable business behavior changes, the vast majority of companies haven’t optimized their communications infrastructure for mobile workforces or BYOD.

    Join this webinar to get ahead of the pack and learn the benefits of a cloud communications solution that supports the new world of work.

  • The ever-growing Internet of Things, together with the cloud, has created a host of new possibilities for enterprise network architectures for the distributed enterprise market. For those distributed enterprises that must manage hundreds or thousands of locations, ease-of-management, network flexibility, and always-on Internet access is required for business operations.

    4G LTE is being used to provide both primary connectivity and network resiliency for business continuity. With greater agility and speed-to-deployment than wired solutions, 4G LTE reduces network cost and complexity while maintaining ROI. Maximize the value of your wireless network.

    Attendees will also learn about:
    • Practical applications of 4G LTE for distributed enterprises such as parallel networks, primary connection, failover, in-vehicle, network convergence, and wireless WAN diversity.
    • How to rapidly deploy and dynamically manage networks at distributed locations through secure cloud-management
    • A cut-the–wire customer success story
    • Keys to success in choosing a 4G LTE networking solution
  • With the exponential growth and sophistication of malware today, the security industry can no longer afford to ‘bury its head in the sand’. The bottom line is that traditional endpoint security protection has now become ineffective due to the sheer volume, quality, and complexity of malware. New threats have stretched the capabilities of "fat client" security architectures to the limit, making it impractical to keep endpoints updated with signatures for all the new viruses.
