MDM Critical Capabilities and the Magic Quadrant

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 [...]

Mobile Device Management: Moving From Tactical To Strategic

by Phillip Redman  |  May 28, 2013  |  2 Comments

We published the latest MDM MQ last week. It’s a five month research process, starting with over 120 companies claiming MDM support. We did a deeper dive with almost 60 and finally settled on a top 18. Interestingly it wasn’t the technology itself that kept most out (though many that were excluded did not provide all four [...]

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 [...]

CTIA Wireless Conference 2012: Changing Of The Guard

by Phillip Redman  |  May 11, 2012  |  Comments Off

It’s funny–my first CTIA conference I went to in the mid-1990′s had kind of a start-up feel to it.  There weren’t a lot of big name companies there, not in the way we know the Nokias or Motorolas of today.There were quite a few industry exhibitors with speacilized products–cable seals or cellsite shelters, that you [...]

Google Aquisition of Motorola Mobility Impacts Telcos

by Phillip Redman  |  August 15, 2011  |  5 Comments

They say war makes strange bedfellows, and so does business.  Google announced its acquisition of Motorola Mobility Inc. (MMI), the recently spun-off cellular handset and set-top box maker.  MMI primarily sells its products to telcos–cable and wireless/wireline service providers, customers that Google has had a tenuous relationship with at best.  Google has been a force [...]

All I Want For 2010

“Are these the shadows of the things that Will be, or are they shadows of things that May be, only?” It’s one of my favorite moments in Dickens’,  “A Christmas Carol” from one of my favorite stories.  It is a moment of sheer terror in the dread of what can come, but also one of  [...]

Looks Like Net Neutrality Coming To Wireless Too

by Phillip Redman  |  September 22, 2009  |  1 Comment

Looks like the FCC, in the next month, is going to mandate net neutrality to all types of Internet access, including cellular networks. In his first major policy speech, FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski proposed new rules including that, “the Internet remains an unfettered platform. . . ” meaning service providers will soon be restricted in [...]
