HP Anywhere – Enterprise Mobility

  Fig 1 - HP Anywhere flow Some time ago, HP’s software team was challenged with a task to manage up to 100,000+ mobile devices for a company. These devices needed secure access to business data and it’s apps, and allow the company to remotely wipe the device without affecting personal data. A significant challenge, and one that the group was not going to back down on. The customer? HP. Their own internal IT department needed a better way to manage mobile devices.   The solution is a common one. Build a container on the phone, and block any access from native applicat...

HP Discover 2012 – Day 1

Day 1: Being one of the late arrivals on Monday afternoon, I’ve pretty much missed all the great introductions with the many bloggers that HP sponsored. I quickly check into my hotel room, run to registration, just to barely make the initial Opening Keynote for Monday night. “Opening Keynote - Kunal Nayyar” FANTASTIC opening! Kunal Nayyar (from the Big Bang Theory) was the initial opener.  A video of him played at first, using scenes from "A Space Odessy" and "HAL 9000".  He was overacting to be funny, HAL was implying that he no longer works for us.... that we have to do ...
