These are observations from the work we’re doing at MobileIron. Every day, we encounter lots of interesting and thought-provoking situations where just the introduction of mobile technology into an organization has created significant behavioral and technology shifts in the status quo. The world is changing. By the time my kids graduate from college and get their first jobs, they won’t use a desk phone or probably even a PC. If you believe, like us, that mobile will become the primary computing platform for the enterprise … and especially if you don’t … please comment and share your thoughts.

The Lessons of the BlackBerry Decade
Ojas Rege | November 26, 2013
BlackBerry changed the world. It made wireless email a killer app that every salesperson and travelling executive absolutely needed to have to get their work done. It gave us devices with batteries that lasted a full week, connectivity that made email feel real-time even over very slow networks, and a user experience that everyone LOVED. And, for IT, BlackBerry...

Ojas Rege | October 30, 2013
A few weeks ago, I wrote up my impressions from this year’s Gartner Symposium in Orlando, where mobile took center stage as a CIO priority.
One of the highlights of the conference for me was doing a session on BYOD Privacy with Rebecca Onchi from eBay. Rebecca is Senior Manager of Corporate Mobile Strategy at eBay, and she gave really practical guidance on how...Continue Reading »

Michael T. Raggo | October 23, 2013
Now that the Black Hat and DefCon hoopla has settled down following the releases of new hacks and vulnerabilities in a plethora of products, vendors quietly go back, make revisions and release patches for their products. So where do we stand "2 months later"? This warrants a review of the prominent mobile device attacks presented at BlackHat 2013 and DefCon 21.

Welcome to the Third Phase of iOS in the Enterprise
Ojas Rege | September 27, 2013
iOS 7 kicks off the third phase of iOS in the enterprise - Mobile First transformation through apps.
Phase I - the “Listen” phase – of iOS in the enterprise started in the summer of 2009. Employees were knocking on IT’s door saying “I want an iPhone,” and, for the first time, it was a realistic request because the iPhone 3GS...
iOS 7 Enterprise Features
Jake Woodhams | September 17, 2013
I love the new iOS 7 look-and-feel and a lot of the cool new consumer features, but at MobileIron, what we’re even more stoked about are all the new iOS 7 Enterprise Features and Capabilities. iOS 7 Business features don’t have the panache of consumer functionality, so most of these new capabilities only made it to the “and a whole lot more”...
