On Tuesday the Federal CIO Council released a Mobility Report.  This report highlights several customer challenges associated with supporting a mobile environments and implementing Steve VanRoekel's Federal Digital Strategy.  The challenges highlighted are consistent with the challenges that many of our government customers have articulated to Symantec:

  1. Mobile Device Management: the need to manage devices and configure them in a way that is consistent with an agency's mobile policy
  2. Mobile Application Store: the need to have a well managed application store where applications can be authorized, secured and managed consistently and centrally for an organization
  3. Identity and Access Management: the need to have appropriate identity and access management controls for mobile devices with authentication and encryption capabilities that meet federal standards 
  4. Data Standards: the need to work with industry to bridge security...

By Rob Greer, Vice President & General Manager, Enterprise Mobility, Symantec

Over the last few years, we’ve seen an increase in the number of new mobile operating systems. The latest example is Microsoft’s announcement today of the availability of Windows Phone 8.

Bring Your Own Device, or BYOD, is all the rage these days. However, any given organization is likely going to have some use-cases where BYOD is feasible and some use-cases where different mobility strategies are a better fit. For most enterprises, a homogeneous mobile infrastructure consisting of several different mobility strategies is going to produce the most effective, productive employees while still maintaining the levels of management and security necessary to keep sensitive corporate information safe.

Thus, companies need to look beyond BYOD and understand their total mobile story. For many, BYOD will likely be a part of the equation, but just one part. The following matrix is a simple and useful way of looking at and understanding the complexities of enterprise mobility. Again, most companies will likely find that they fit into more than one of the quadrants below.

Recently I had the chance to speak at FedScoop’s 4th Annual Lowering the Cost of Governing with IT event. Lowering costs without slashing budgets, while at the same time providing a higher level of service to agency employees and their constituents is top-of-mind for most agencies, so I was thrilled to be included in the all-star line up.
Agencies themselves have two major concerns at the moment that both focus on mobility.
First, they are tasked with mobilizing two customer-facing services before the end of May 2013. As we approach the mobile tipping point, Federal CIO Steve VanRoekel would like to see agencies address what he sees as their biggest technology challenge – enabling secure access to digital government information and services anywhere, anytime, on any device. If it’s true that in 2015 more Americans will access the Internet via mobile devices than desktop PCs, this will be a major and necessary undertaking....
