More than ever before, smartphones are keeping us connected both personally and professionally. Because most of us have a preference as to the ideal smartphone, IT departments are increasingly being tasked with managing a mix of business-liable and employee-liable devices. This trend has become known as the consumerization of IT.

Symantec has developed a short survey to get smartphone end users’ perspectives on this trend. We’d also like to learn more about how your employer is managing the growing use of smartphones, especially those being purchased and brought into the organization by employees. The quick five minute survey can be found here:

Once you’ve taken the survey, please stay tuned to this blog as we’ll be sharing the results once the survey is complete.

You've seen the post in this community about the #Altiris chat - manned by volunteers who are Altiris Admins like you and willing to answer your questions. But have you ever wondered what goes on, without actually wanting to wander into that great unknown? Or worse yet, have you wandered in and no one is there?! We don't always have answers to the questions that are asked, but we do our best.

One of the #Altiris regulars GaurhothW put this report together showing what times are most active (times listed are EST) and who is most active. You can also see some of the random comments - thus we will be watching what we say so we aren't randomly quoted saying something embarrassing!

The information on this report updates periodically #...
