To Wi-Fi or Not to Wi-Fi, That Depends on Your Platform

Do you Wi-Fi, or do you data hog? That is the question. Right now, a best practice for staying under your data limit is to maintain awareness of your consumption level. Individuals who stay on top of this usually know where the next-closest Wi-Fi network is. And make a habit of staying connected to it early and often! As per a report from comScore (comparing users of the top two most popular mobile platforms) you're more likely to receive this helpful advise from an iPhone user than you are an Android user. This information spells both good and bad news for IT administrators tasked with managing a diverse mix of smartphones and tablets.

How Bring Your Own Device Will Change IT’s Job

Whitelisting and Blacklisting Apps in the Classroom

Similar to shoppers in the trenches of a local Apple store, K-12 schools have made it a top priority to get their hands on the latest gadgets and technology. Teachers are calling for bundles of iPads to be delivered for their students, and its popularity has spread nationwide. To get a picture for what I'm talking about, Apple reported in September at least 600 school districts had begun implementing one-to-one programs where at least one classroom makes a tablet available to every student. Its quite an anomaly whenever a consumer-driven technology can take the learning process such a long way. But who's complaining? Increased engagement is the very reason demand for the iPad continues to increase. It gives young learners something they enjoy using when they're not in the classroom and puts it right in front of them. An added benefit is the ability to stay up-to-date on material. The last thing a school district on a tight budget wants to do is buy in to the repeated process of textbook replacement.

BYOD Expense Management Considerations

Proponents of enterprise bring-your-own-device (BYOD) programs have taken a two-pronged approach to their argument. The first is simple: you have a personal device with all of your contacts, apps, and personal settings configured, so why complicate things by using a different device at work? The added benefits are of the many; you free up some space in your bag or pocket, you can respond to urgent matters no matter where you are or what time it is--finally, your work resources, materials, and documents are centralized in one place. And let's remember: using your own device makes it possible to do serious work a fun way. You'll find yourself transformed into a more productive worker. Let's face it, those who are buying in to it have an edge over those who aren't.
