Sometimes I despair a little at how much time and effort enterprises take to perform tasks that really should be considered simple housekeeping. One would have thought that, in this day and age with disruption and turmoil facing many organizations, that we would have reached a place where the most basic tasks of IT management were no longer necessary.
Alas, however, there’s no escaping the fact that, like the physical infrastructure our cities and nations work upon, the building blocks of an enterprise’s IT footprint are still important. One of these building blocks is increasingly problematic, that of mobile application management (MAM). MAM is all about delivering, securing, and controlling enterprise applications within the context of mobile devices. With the rapidly growing use of mobile devices within enterprise settings, and the increasing move towards bring your own device (BYOD), this is an area of increasing importance.
