Customization of new technologies: the future of … – JDN

New technologies are not only easier to use: they have become an extension of our personality. The next step is to master this link “emotional” with them. Objective: increase productivity.

 Within a generation we have witnessed a revolution
 in the field of new technologies. We are well past mainframes
 the client-server environments have seen progress through mobility
 laptops and have witnessed what is likely to remain
 as the most significant advance in recent history: the launch of
 iPhone in 2007. One thing is certain: a lot has changed

 would of course be naive of us to think that this transformation
 accelerated our daily professional life has now ended. Okay
 other changes are coming.

 offered us as consumers, the opportunity to take a
 advanced technology and use it to make our life more enjoyable.
 Since then, more and more services and applications have evolved and created a
 strong emotional connection with users. Now, who could honestly
 able to dispense blithely assert his iPhone (or its Samsung Galaxy
 or other smartphone last cry)?

 of course.

 devices have set a new standard for future technology trends.
 The power of the computer is huge, even for most tasks
 simple. There are twenty, getting rid of mosquitoes with a newspaper
 wrapped: now there an app for that. In short, we live
 So in a radically different world.

Video conferencing,
 management of bank accounts, reading books, games, instant messaging
 with friends, listening to music … the list of our new capacity is
 long. How not to build an emotional connection with such a device?

 what impact does it expect in the workplace? There
 consumerization of IT has had an impact. Paul Maritz, Director
 Strategic from EMC and former CEO of VMware, moreover argues that consumer grade is brought to
 become the new benchmark

 I can not agree more. Now the importance of having
 Information at your fingertips is so great that which corresponded
 before professional-level technology is now called
 just new technology. What the public has between
 hands today is that it will use in the workplace:
 attachment exists, and these devices are more than enough in the
 part of their missions.

 power to the people.

The influence
 new technologies for individuals on the characteristics
 from those used in the workplace has led to the emergence of BYOD (Bring Your Own
 Device). If this has sometimes been observed due to inadequate
 (Or absence) of technological devices provided by the company,
 it is most often the refusal by an employee to break the link
 existing with his personal device.

 of the motivation leading to BYOD, the result is that decisions
 on equipment used in business are usually taken by
 the company itself.

This is
 further evidence that the public has an influence ever
 before the computer business. Whether or iPhone
 Android, the use of a mobile device change dynamics
 communication, collaboration and data use.

 Security is queen.

 CIOs are concerned about data security. Nothing is possible as
 it is not guaranteed. Issues related to the simultaneous management
 data security and accessibility are obviously complex.

 a strategy focused on containerization, and delivering kits
 software development (SDK) to meet safety requirements
 and simple application encapsulation can achieve this.

 Companies can then progress to the next step: using
 of secure mobility to perform their transformation.

 employees have the devices of their choice, and, within two years, 80% of the population of Europe
 and the United States will have a smartphone
. Now IT departments
 Companies, too, have the means to enable them to secure this

 arrived at the interesting step for companies: one where
 they can be free and create an IT environment leveraging
 affection consumers for their device. They thus
 the opportunity to achieve levels of productivity, efficiency and
 unprecedented collaboration.

 first objective is to combine devices and preferences
 consumers / employees with the applications necessary for their business. The
 professional software was originally designed for use on a
 desk with a keyboard and mouse. Mobility removes these elements
 equation and poses a different problem. According to a report from Infonetics
 Research on mobile security, close to
one million Android applications integrate the world
 the company this year.

 to meet the employees who want to use their smartphones and more
 their shelves and used to a large number of specific applications
 their personal lives, companies have only one solution
 Available: provide applications!

 may be developing custom applications for processes
 specific business, to use secure applications available
 trade, or set up their own place of application market.
 The latter option enables IT to exercise
 control over their information systems to a level unattainable
 in a scenario of BYOD classic (and thus more open).

 IT departments can not control personal devices
 their employees, and in most cases, can not control
 incoming data (especially their destination after passing out
 these devices).

 solution is not to control everything. Rather, it is to create a
 IT environment that is consistent with what the user needs
 while meeting business objectives.

 the example of Facebook as an application popular with users.
 What are the reasons for this success? The first reason is
 Obviously the fact that his friends also use this application.
 Why? Because they can communicate with each other via
 instant messaging or using a conventional mailbox. They can
 also share their photos and movies, links to articles they
 appreciate, and anything else considered interesting.

Let us carry
 these elements work environment. What tools such as Salesforce
 Chat or Microsoft Sharepoint are they so different from what offers
 Facebook to individuals? If you make them available on
 mobile devices for employees and if you make sure they are suitable for
 the platform, there is a good chance that they are used by

 good news is that once this type of secure tools to help a
 container, they can be monitored and managed. IT teams
 can analyze their use while simultaneously controlling the data
 available and their destinations. As stated above, it is impossible to
 control what an employee … or indirectly.

 you are able to set up a controlled environment in which your
 employees work calmly, then you will come to the promised land

 Business Transformation?

 there is no easy way to fundamentally transform the way
 a business. It’s never simple. However, knowing the direction
 and take the route to get there is certainly useful.

 Mobility has already modified employee behavior, but very little
 companies have actually built this development in a real
 mobility strategy and, above all, to make it a competitive advantage.
 Cease to require employees to put aside their strong relationship with their
 smartphone and rather put this link in favor of the company.
