IT organizations are largely siloed between the desktop and mobile management worlds. IT has addressed management of mobile devices with modern enterprise mobility management (EMM) solutions. However, Windows desktops have been managed separately using older PC lifecycle management (PCLM) technologies, which have fallen short of basic IT and end user expectations of today’s evolved, mobile-cloud workforce.
The VMware AirWatch® Unified Endpoint Management (UEM) solution is a single, platform-independent approach for managing every device and every operating system across any organizational use case. The solution combines traditional client management requirements with modern EMM efficiencies enabling IT to deliver OS policies, patches, and apps over-the-air. Cloud-first management with instant push technologies and self-service capabilities ensure lower cost management, better security, and peak user experience regardless of the device being used to access the corporate environment.
Mobility, having permeated our cultural ethos, has subsequently transformed the enterprise. No longer considered a frill, its ripple effect on our workforce can be seen in the way IT handles security and productivity.
As IT administrators catch up with their new responsibilities, enterprise mobility management (EMM) solutions flood the market. Explore key questions to ask on your EMM journey, including:
- Does this EMM platform address my use case?
- Does it support common platforms?
- Does it control access to corporate resources?
- And more
Enterprise mobile capabilities ideally complement, protect, and enable market-leading mobile applications to improve workforce productivity and intelligence and enable increased sales performance as a result. After a number of years of considering the relative value of various new devices, mobile device management (MDM) paradigms, development methodologies, new services, and new connectivity models, retailers are ramping up investments in enterprise mobility. Rugged devices can be part of this business outcome-centered approach, adding enterprise mobility to deliver great experiences and comparatively reduce the economic cost of doing so — importantly, doing so with continued ease in supportability, excellence in performance, and consistency in usability. Retailers are continuing to invest in deployment of secure ruggedized mobile devices for many reasons that are explored in this white paper.

Dramatic shifts in workplace norms as a result of remote sales teams are now a reality, as field-based personnel perform so many vital selling and strategic account management business functions, more effectively armed with tablets than ever before. Aberdeen research conducted for Sales Performance Management 2012: How the Best-in-Class Optimize the Front Line to Grow the Bottom Line (December 2011), shows that 60% of companies’ sales team members are primarily remote workers. Indeed, in Aberdeen research for Mobile HCM: Workforce and Talent Management on the Move (June 2010), 57% of respondents who track the impact of their mobile recruiting efforts report improved quality and/or size of their talent pool as a result of their work. Does attracting and retaining a quality sales force thus require corporate technologies and processes that are influenced by consumer trends and cultural sea changes? Moreover, are there benefits to enterprises that enable their sales team to work remotely?

Engaging Employees through a Unified Platform
Learn how simplifying processes with a unified HCM solution can help you better manage all employees and remove barriers to optimal engagement.
An engaged workforce is satisfied and productive. To make this a reality for your organization, you need a human capital strategy that can help you think strategically about managing, engaging, and retaining your entire workforce.
However, in many cases, the systems that manage human capital alienate rather than engage both employees and managers — making it challenging, for example, to easily access schedules or paystubs without having to call HR or do self-service assessments of career path options.
Implementing an effective HCM strategy supported by the right workforce technology can save your organization time and resources, improve the management of your people-related processes, and drive greater employee engagement.

At the Defcon security conference on August 2007, a hacker and Defcon staffer who goes by the name Zac Franken, showed how a small homemade device he calls "Gecko", which can perform a hack on the type of access card readers used on office doors throughout the country.
Swiping a card to gain access to a company building is now a perfectly accepted feature of everyday corporate life. Over the years, we have all grown familiar with the routine and the advantages it brings to access control. But where cards were once used exclusively to open doors, controlling who went where and when in a building, now they can be used for a wide variety of extra functions.
