The battle for the one ruler of mobility has been ravishing the land for years. As three powerful families of devices battle to usurp the others with larger screens, faster processors and more features, it has left the kingdom in great turmoil on who they should trust as the most benevolent ruler of productivity.
Join Fiberlink as Medieval Mobile MaaSters for Apple, Android and Windows clash to determine which device family will sit upon the silicon throne.
Apple: Lord Andrew Clarke: Like the Lannisters, Apple is the current leader of Enterprise mobility with the most devices activated in business and schools. With its beloved features, apps, usability, and expanding device options, the iOS platform seems fit to rule for years to come. But it remains to be seen just how far Apple can extend its empire across the continents.
Android: Sir Frank Schloendorn: This Targaryen like mobile OS may not be the obvious choice, but the device diversity that was once keeping Android in exile has turned into a powerful battle arsenal. Devices and features found in the Samsung KNOX family line could very well be a mammoth dragon of power in pushing further inside the enterprise garden walls.
Windows: Squire Sergiy Mimkha: Windows like the Starks has taken quite a few battle scars in the battle for mobility. Now though with the power of Windows Phone 8 and the seamless connectivity to Office365 and portals of parchment sharing like SharePoint, Windows is poised to march from the great Northwest to show they are a force to be reckoned with.
Smartwatches, Google Glass and fitness wearables have captured consumer interest imagination the past 12 months. Is the next step adoption into the enterprise?
While tablets and smartphones kicked off the BYOD revolution, wearable tech will solidify the age of user choice for productivity. Join Fiberlink experts Frank Schloendorn and Jonathan Dale as they debate the pitfalls and perils of these ubiquitous devices as they emerge in networks, systems and the enterprise.
In this webinar you will get full details on how you can ride the wearables wave into the future and stem the tide of data leaks in your enterprise:

We know what year it is, but Fiberlink wants to help you future proof your Enterprise Mobility Management strategy and solutions with guest speaker IDC analyst John Jackson. Mobility is a dynamically evolving design point for enterprise applications of all types. As an IT professional, it can be tough to keep up with the fast pace, new ideas and all those acronyms! MEM, MDM, MAM, BYOD...how does it all fit together and where's it all going?
Mobile Enterprise Management (MEM) is expected to own $2.1B of the market by 2017.** This isn't hard to believe with more than half of IT Managers reporting that their organizations have implemented an MDM or MAM tool in their mobile strategy. And as the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) beat goes on, MEM solutions have evolved from device management to incorporate app management, and are now increasingly supporting content management functionality.
Join John Jackson, IDC analyst,to discuss enterprise mobility:
- IDC's Third Platform concept and how it changes everything
- 2-3 -year outlook on EMM
- Expanding functionality expected from EMM platforms
- What other IT professionals like you are saying about EMM
- Essential guidance for IT buyers vetting EMM vendors
In Part 1, we shared key trends to watch and consider as you build your mobile plan for 2014. In this session, we take a deeper dive to help you develop your company's mobile policy to fully embrace the BYOD trend, enable employees to be productive on any device they choose, and keep corporate data secure.
Watch Ovum analyst, Richard Absalom, as he outlines Ovum's 6 recommended areas to consider when building a mobility policy:
- Security: Safeguarding corporate-sensitive data
- Employee privacy: Defining clear boundaries between monitoring corporate and personal usage
- Eligibility: Identifying which employees are suitable for your policy
- Acceptable use and dealing with policy violations: Educating users to comply with policy regulations
- Technical support: Determining responsibility for dealing with device malfunctions
- Reimbursement and total cost of ownership: Drawing the line for corporate expenses
What should you be focusing on as you build your 2014 enterprise mobility plan? Your Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) strategy must evolve beyond basic Mobile Device Management (MDM) to include all aspects of mobile as a first point of contact between your business and your customers and employees.
Join Ovum analyst, Richard Absalom, as he highlights EMM trends to watch and consider in 2014 to stay ahead of the mobile consumerization curve such as:
- Multi-screening: Meeting employee expectations and productivity needs
- Mobile first: Defining a mobility policy that addresses how employees are already using mobile (hint: it's so much more than email)
- Mobile apps: Creating easy-to-use modern business apps to mobilize core tasks
