Mobility and Endpoint Management at Pulse 2012
With the ever-increasing number of endpoints organizations must manage – physical and virtual servers, desktops, laptops, point of sale and mobile devices – it is imperative to gain visibility, control and automation. These devices simultaneously represent security risks, employee productivity, and new business opportunities. Join us at Pulse 2012 to hear from your peers and IBM experts on how to minimize risks, increase productivity, and increase innovation.
Track 1: Leveraging Mobility
Mobility is playing an increasing role across the enterprise. From standard voice and data services to business critical applications, mobility technologies are becoming critical to business operations. This track will explore the challenges and solutions around delivering and managing mobile technologies - from the impact to the network to accessing sensitive business applications to supporting the use of enterprise social and collaboration solutions - leveraging mobility is much more than simply enabling email access.
Track 2: Managing Endpoints and Mobile Devices
A well managed endpoint - regardless of whether it is a server, desktop, laptop, smartphone, tablet, Point of Sale, or any other type of computing device - is more secure and has a lower total cost of ownership. This track will provide real-world solutions for common problems across all platforms such as better patch management, optimizing software usage, automating common system administration and end user support tasks, and reducing costs through power management techniques.
Mobile devices in particular have a very large impact throughout the organization today. Their rapid adoption over the last several years has significantly increased the “consumerization of IT” and forced IT departments to adopt Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policies. At IBM we understand this goes well beyond the devices themselves though – it impacts network traffic, internal software development and custom applications, employee collaboration and use of social media, and much more. We are enabling businesses to build mobile applications, run and connect them to backend systems, manage their devices and applications, and secure their businesses on mobile – all to help our customers create new business opportunities and extend existing business capabilities.
