Not only the apps you use every day are enhanced with new features, OS X Yosemite will in fact will change the way you see your Mac. Although it is true that in spite of OS X having changed in many ways for the better, the basic principles deﬁning it – power, simplicity, beauty – actually haven’t.

In the First Part of the series we covered important factors of BYOD growth. In the last part of the series we covered essential elements and security management of BYOD program.
Essential Elements of a Successful BYOD Program
Posted in BYOD | Posted on 03-06-2014
Bring your own device (BYOD) phenomenon is making inroads into the corporate world at a rapid pace. Employees want to use their personal smartphones, iPads, tablets and laptops at work to access enterprise data and systems. While many companies have been and still are skeptical of this growing trend, there seems to be no stopping. Many believe BYOD increases employee morale and productivity. Sheer freedom and the convenience of using their own devices, makes employees feel liberated and happy. Employees are more comfortable with and adept at using a personal device – making them more productive. Very often personal devices are updated and cutting-edge, so enterprise gain huge benefits using latest features. Further, BYOD programs shift costs to the user. After all employees end up paying for mobile devices and data services. It appears to be a win-win situation for employees and employers. Right? Well, not exactly. When you let users bring their own devices, you are putting a lot at stake in terms of corporate security and confidentiality.
Of course, you shouldn’t let users bring in any devices they want and open floodgates of risks. There are some very strong arguments not to allow BYOD. Security concerns happens to top the list, but is certainly not the only factor playing on the minds of decision makers and IT teams. Organizations ultimately tend to lose the control, especially in absence of well-defined BYOD polices.

Enterprise mobility is the new buzzword forcing IT decision makers to rethink their business strategies. Mobile technology has evolved from just providing enterprise email on the go, to introducing robust applications and services that have the potential to change the way companies do business, streamline operations, and improve efficiency. Proliferation of smart phones and pervasive mobile devices is helping organizations to leverage contextual data and reach out to their customers and partners in new ways. But many organizations are simply taking a plunge into this new world without applying any thought. There is no denying that enterprise mobility will change the way people work and no organization can remain untouched by this phenomenon. Early adopters of enterprise mobility are already reaping benefits and scaling new heights of customer satisfaction and employee productivity. Since today’s business realities demands agility and enterprise mobility is fast turning out to be a strategic imperative rather than just a technology choice.
While many consider Augmented Reality (commonly known as AR) as the dawning of a new era in technology, what makes it all the more interesting and mystic is its very limited information available as of now (which I guess will no longer be applicable after you read this article), accessibility to the technology and its implementation in the real world.
Although, AR existed even as early as the 1960s (See AR Facts below), it largely came into prominence in the last decade with the increasing dominance of mobile applications. What actually is Augmented Reality?
Understanding Augmented Reality
Augmented Reality (also referred to as ‘enhanced reality’) is a technique that blurs the divide between the digital and the real world and brings them together. AR uses camera technology to recognize real-world images, objects and environments and links them up with complementing digital and virtual information – both being linked together visually, and this by identifying a person’s surroundings and displaying information on a mobile device.
With AR your mobile device turns into a portal to the digital world with overlays of video, audio, 3-D content or even location-based information all in real time. As mobile devices become smarter and new factors like wearable computing emerge, AR will continue to deliver incredible applications with even more impressive results.
Microsoft on Monday announced that it’s much loved cloud storage service, Microsoft SkyDrive is now rechristened OneDrive. Interesting indeed is the choice for the word ’ONE’! Earlier Google too has imbibed this concept, ‘One account. All of Google’.
