Question Wireless Mobility Strategy

Please Login to Remove!

Last week if you attended BBWC, you heard an overwhelming amount of advice and questions around Wireless Mobility Strategy.

It was a little unnerving to hear how many organizations are with out any strategy. Most companies are taking mobility and throwing solutions at the problem to see what sticks.

What is your organization doing?

I have never yet met a company that planned to fail, but I know a whole lot that failed to plan.

I was noticing a lot of folks that didn't have anything in place for a strategy. Just getting BlackBerrys out there and make 'em work.
No security, no failover, no DR plan. It was quite shocking.

We have a clear security policy in place that applies to all devices. Password, encryption, everything.
BES HA is in place with the HA in a completely separate facility.
BESMgmt is backed up incrementally each night; full back up weekly.
Servers are VM snapshots.
DR plan in place with updated off-site storage with a 3rd party company of data, backups and snapshots as stated above. All information is sent to them on a weekly basis.

We are currently looking into allowing personal devices in the workplace including iPhones and Droids. Support disclaimers are being written and IT polices will be the same as BES.

How's that for a strategy?

Darth, you would be one of the few that has gone that far, given the attitude at the conference. What is interesting to me is how many "mobility solution providers" have popped up. But what I find funny is that they were doing TEM then thought they might dabble in device management. I think we should band together and make a company. Really kick it into high gear and show people what they are missing starting as admins not as some schmuck who decided it was a quick way to make a buck.
