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.
At yesterday's MORE series webinar, we took a dive into the hottest topic in enterprise mobility: Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) programs. Whether your IT team has begun putting a BYOD plan into practice — or is looking to start from scratch — we've got you covered.
Technology has made March Madness madder than ever, giving the term a whole new meaning around the office. Especially with games tipping off between the hours of 9 and 5. According to a recent survey of 500 IT professionals (conducted by Braun Research), the NCAA college basketball tournament has been identified by 42% as a corporate network inhibitor. 37% reported slower speeds and 34% say the hoops tourny shut down their network for an extended period of time. It's easy to imagine how this is happening with employees streaming games from their work computers. The chances of your employees engaging in the same type of activity is relatively high. Bracketology, after all, can leave pride, money, and other unspeakables on the table.
Marked by its ease of use and managability in most work environments, the iPad 2 has become a go-to option for actualizing today's mobility initiatives. With a new iPad on its way in March, its hard to hold back from imagining what the next tablet could mean for tomorrow's mobile workers. It's safe to assume that it will be everything and more than what we know it to be today, but let's take a couple minutes to hypothesize how it could change the way you do work. Starting with what we know about the iPad 2--and a little help from rumors about what's coming next--we can work our way up to an educated guess.
Herein lies Round 3 of the tablet showdown, and perhaps the most interesting part of the debate for users themselves. Where our opening rounds covered the physical tablets--how they appear out of the box and their tech specs--this round covers what your interaction would be like with the device in the context of your home or office. After reading this post, you should have a pretty good idea of which tablet is best suited for you in either respect. If you are in the mood to listen rather than read, you can always watch a recording of the event here (Note: Round 3 begins 22 minutes and 10 seconds into the video).
Now that we've (somehow) bounced back from the period of drowsiness synonymous with the Thanksgiving holiday, I invite you to jump right back into the action with me. Continuing from where we left off, I'm going to summarize how the kindle fire chalks up to the iPad 2 in terms of tech specs.
