BYOD & Mobile Workers and pushing in the Security and Software distribution traditional headaches, making them bigger, faster and more critical. In the background, a Desktop transformation is rolling. Why a Desktop Transformation? Gartner says in 2020 45% of the organization will have no owned devices, that is, they will be 100% BYOD organization, and only 15% or the organization will have no BYOD in place. Take a minute to think about these figures. They are awesome! We are not talking only about employees that bring they own laptop to the office, we are also talkling about tablets, phones and any new device that will allow employees to access their data and applications to create value for corporations. Forrester ( “2013 Mobile Workforce Adoption Trends”. Feb 2014) shows how new devices are becoming usual devices to work: In the same report, Forrester points out that currenty more than 29% of workers are "anytime & any-device" workers: So there is an evidence: BYOD , Mobility, Anytime, Any-Device... all these topics put more and more pressure in IT departments to be able to deliver applications to all these devices and users without compromising security. Layer Cake Transformation "Anytime, anywhere information Work is the new normal" (Forrester,"2013 Mobile Workforce Adoption Trends". Feb 2014). This is IT CONSUMERIZATION. What is really happening is that the standard Layer Cake with HW, OS, Applications and Users, is exploding into many pieces, i.e.: new Operating Systems, tons of new devices. IT consumerization is driving the change, and nothing is going to stop it. We can track this change over the years, starting in the old PC, then VDI attempt, and finally, Workspaces. [...]
Quick snapshot Quick snapshot of what is commonly understood as a Workspace or a Workspace Aggregator A WORKSPACE AGGREGATOR is a software that offers: Microsoft Windows, Web-based, published, SaaS, and native local and mobile applications, as well as entire HVDs Appplication self-service stores Centralized identity management (SSO) Application life-cycle management Consistent UI and context-aware access According to PQR , the term Workspace Aggregator is used to describe software that unifies the delivery of multiple application or desktop types such as: Native mobile applications; Software as a Service (SaaS) applications; Mobile web applications; Windows Applications via application virtualization or installation; Desktops, local, server Hosted Virtual Desktops (VDI) or published Desktops in SBC. Core functionalities that every Workspace aggregator should offer: Source: VDI Smackdown solutions overview and feature comparison matrix (PQR- 2013). A workspace aggregator should also evaluate the user’s device to determine which applications are available for this user on this particular device and at this particular time (context-aware access). Workspace aggregators also provide secure file data access from a broad range of devices. A workspace aggregator simplifies the deployment and life cycle management of applications. As the single point of access, (de)provisioning, auditing and monitoring is easily accomplished through security rules and policy enforcement. Workspace aggregators that are available at the market today also provide Single Sign On capabilities to applications. ‘Workspace aggregation’ is a strategic function in the future’s workspace which is independent from hardware and is OS and browser neutral. Workspace aggregators will mature and become more and more complete over the next
I have been using Google Apps for years to manage my own domain e-mail accounts, and it works pretty well! ... when you get used to their stream model for organising mails. And it is free, sorry, it WAS free. Since Dec. 12, you have to pay 4 €/month to get the service. :( This is NOT good news. Yesterday I needed a powerfull mail-engine for a new domain that I bought. So I went out and saw what is out there. I found Outlook.com, former Hotmail service. Uhmmm.. Microsoft offering free service?? Let's see... They offer basically the same features as Google Apps plus some interesting advantages: 7 GB storage capacity in Skydrive (more than Google Drive). You can go back to the classic way for classifying mails in folders, not just tags like in gmail. The one I like most: you can edit MS-Office files in the Cloud like if you were in your Desktop computer with MS-Office Apps. This is a wonderful feature. Neither Dropbox, nor Google Apps can do that. Here you can find a more deep comparison. I must confess that I have to test Outlook.com sychro with muy smartphone, but first attempts have been successful. Up to now, I must recommend Outlook.com for those who need a free and powerful mail engine for their own domain, with excellent features. update July 2013. Outlook does not support IMAP, so why don't you try Zoho.com? I have been using it for 3 month and it quite good. NO adds!!
