These are observations from the work we’re doing at MobileIron. We sell software to companies that want to get the most out of their smartphones. So we encounter lots of interesting and even thought-provoking situations where just the introduction of mobile tech into an organization has created a bunch of behavioral and technology strategy shifts in the status quo. The world’s changing. By the time my kids get real jobs they won’t know what a desk phone is. Maybe even a laptop. If you also believe that smartphones will become the primary computing platform for the enterprise one day… and especially if you don’t … please comment and share your thoughts.

If you’re like me, nothing annoys you more than the feeling of getting ripped off. Last year I leased a car. The salesperson pushed hard to get me to upgrade to a model with GPS. I didn’t see the value given that all my mobile devices already have GPS, but I was...Continue Reading »

Getting past the Engineering Recruiter in Silicon Valley
Pavel Zeman | April 26, 2013
Engineering resumes are dead.
Yes, you may need one to make your job application look half legitimate, but, for the hiring manager, the resume by itself has very little value.
When applying for that next exciting, rewarding opportunity, remember that you’re selling. You’re selling yourself.
Tell me a story. Tell me a story that makes sense and that is easy to...Continue Reading »

Good Posture: Why MobileIron MDM, MAM, and Cisco ISE for BYOD Will Make Your Mom Happy
Ojas Rege | April 3, 2013
BYOD brings diversity into the enterprise mix: more devices deployed, more types of devices, a flood of consumer apps, and highly personal usage patterns. As @jsirota described in Mobile Security: A Better Model than Desktop, managing this diversity does not mean locking down the device-side software, but rather establishing a trust-based model for controlling enterprise access. Good...Continue Reading »
How Windows Phone 8 MDM and MAM Work
Tomas Vetrovsky | April 2, 2013
One of the most common questions I receive on Windows Phone 8 support is: “Where is the MobileIron client in the Windows Phone Store?”
The answer is: We have supported Windows Phone 8 since Q4 2012 but we don’t need a client to do the initial device enrollment.
