3 Simple Rules for Government Agencies to Manage Mobility

By: Absolute Editorial Team | 7/17/2014

I recently wrote an article for FCW on “3 rules for managing mobility,” which looks at how mobility devices are changing organizations, including government agencies. From wireless networks and cloud-based business apps and the demands of users to bring his or her own device, governments now face major challenges balancing data security and control with end-user flexibility and productivity.

In the article, I highlight how organizations that successfully enable and manage mobility follow three key rules:

  1. Manage the user, not the device
  2. Implement and enforce a mobile-use policy
  3. Maintain a persistent connection to the devices

Mobility is arguably the most disruptive technology since the World Wide Web, and IT departments that try to resist it will ultimately fail. Those that follow the three rules outlined above can secure data while embracing mobility and enabling a more productive workforce. Read about each of these points in detail on the FCW article.
