by Phillip Redman  |  June 4, 2013  |  Comments Off

I’ve been blogging for Gartner for 4 years now. I’ve noticed that my submissions are pretty non-existent in the Spring every year. That’s because I am working on our big MDM MQ and Critical Capabilities (CC) project at that time. I’m very proud about the impact that it has made on the market and how [...]

If Apple Won’t Do It, Somebody Else Should

by Phillip Redman  |  February 14, 2013  |  Comments Off

In a survey from December 2012, 63% of respondents said that  iOS will be their primary enterprise platform in the next twelve months, if it isn’t already.  There’s no doubt that Apple has taken the enterprise world by storm.  Its done just enough to offer enterprises security and management, and although there’s a list an [...]

Can Containers Control Content?

by Phillip Redman  |  January 25, 2013  |  1 Comment

Over the last quarter–I’ve been getting a lot of questions around the capabilities of managing and securing content and enforcing policy on enterprise and third-party (application store) apps.  We often end up talking about mobile application containers.  Very few IT people know much around the containerization category–often listed under mobile application management.  It’s awareness level is [...]

Jumping On The (Mobile) Cloud Bandwagon

by Phillip Redman  |  November 14, 2011  |  Comments Off

Alright I’ve waited long enough.  All this talk about cloud was making me hungry.  No really, being a telecom analyst and watching all these computing geeks talk about cloud computing while the fixed and mobile network providers basically invented the cloud, has been tough.  Haven’t network providers been using the “cloud” diagram for years?  And how do [...]

by Phillip Redman  |  June 25, 2010  |  1 Comment

There was a lot of excitement in the air this week, or at least on the Internet, about the release of iOS4 to upgrade the iPhone 3G and 3Gs (and oh, yeah, the new iPhone 4 availability to those that pre-ordered!).  Currently, iPhone is a mile wide in enterprises, but only an inch deep–basically most [...]
