Joanie Wexler, Contributing Writer, Network World Challenge Series; Technology Analyst and Editorial Director, Webtorials TechNotes

Mobility in the enterprise -- and our daily lives -- is here to stay, and its footprint and influence is expanding. What does the broader mobile environment look like? What are the drivers, benefits and challenges of the BYOD/COPE craze?

There are numerous enterprise mobility management approaches available (and still emerging!) for handling BYOD, COPE and other challenges. All, of course, have their advantages and tradeoffs. Generally, how do they stack up against one another? Join us for this session to gain insight into proactive steps you can take to embrace the mobile future, secure your environment and adapt to future growth.
9:15 am - 10:00 amBring Your Own Design: Implementing BYOD Without Going Broke or Crazy
Eric Stresen-Reuter, Technical Director, Ruckus Wireless
When it comes to BYOD, few companies want to implement every bell and whistle because (a) they don’t have time, (b) they don’t have the skilled staff, (c) they don’t have the budget, (d) they don’t see the need, or more likely, (e) all of the above. Since Wi-Fi takes center stage in any BYOD initiative, the good news is most organizations already have the right network components to address their BYOD basics without having to purchase more network equipment. This session will focus on how to simply address BYOD issues without a lot of pain and anguish. Topics will include identifying and managing devices, providing simple device security and access, role-based access, and visibility.

Paul Durzan, Director of Business Development, Cisco
As smartphones become smarter, tablets become the norm, and wireless Internet access becomes ubiquitous, the practice of BYOD is gaining traction.  Companies big and small across many different industries are turning to these technologies to create innovative new business offerings to attract customers and enable greater flexibility and productivity in the workforce.  These innovations used to come with compromise, often forcing IT to relinquish control or loosen security standards.  But today, new wireless technologies enable IT to truly embrace BYOD without compromise.  Join us for this session as we explore mobility and security advancements that will dramatically shape the enterprise and drive further growth and innovation.

Don’t miss this revealing discussion chock full of inside stories and critical tips.

Tajinder Mann, Director of Marketing for Enterprise Networking & Communications, Motorola Solutions
BYOD is like a tsunami across many enterprises in many verticals, with expectations of easy, secure on-boarding that improves employee responsiveness and increases productivity. But many IT departments are finding complexities in implementation and deployment, rising security concerns and challenges with integration into existing systems. They are also finding that BYOD may not be one size fits all. Is BYOD over-hyped? Is BYOD the right tool for the problem you’re trying to solve? Join Motorola Solutions to learn where BYOD applies and how secured guest access not only augments BYOD, but improves network security and guest/customer experience.
2:15 pm - 2:45 pmBest Practices with MDM in a BYOD World
Tim Williams, Director of Product Management, Absolute Software

When organizations choose client management tools for desktops and laptops, they don't typically need to re-evaluate them for three or four years. So why is it that the MDM solution you chose six months ago already seems outdated?  Is it even possible to choose a tool that can keep up with all the changes?  Join us for this session as we explore best practices in this fast-moving area.
Managing The BYOD Chaos from the Cloud
Endre Walls, CTO, Resource for Human Development
The growing trend of BYOD programs opens the door to new Mobile Device Management (MDM) platforms, bringing with it an expanding pool of “must-haves” and “nice-to-have” attributes all claiming to be suited best for your environment.  Learn why a true cloud-based solution is the fastest way to securely manage your devices, apps and docs.  Walk away with a  comprehensive yet simple approach to BYOD for both IT and employees.

3:15 pm - 3:45 pmBYOD and Enabling Mobility for All
Josh Bentley, Mobility Solutions Engineer, SAP
Organizations are permitting, and even encouraging employees to bring their own mobile devices into the workplace to be used for work purposes. This trend is shifting how devices are procured, paid for, managed and supported.  While many organization may look to BYOD as a way to lower the cost of enterprise mobility, the true value should be placed on bringing productivity and communications advantages to a much broader group of employees, thereby enabling ‘mobility for all’.  Join us for this session to learn how SAP, a global company with over 40,000 mobile devices in use, has realized significant business benefit from mobilizing employees around the globe and embracing BYOD policies in over 10 countries. Driven by the consumerization of IT and the company’s mobile-solution focus, SAP offers all employees the option to use either a corporate-owned or personally owned mobile device for work. Learn from SAP’s firsthand expertise, and explore the importance of mobile applications when defining your BYOD strategy.
Mobile Apps: Deploying, and Managing Them

With new mobile form factors come the cries for corporate apps that are mobile-friendly.  But how do you securely provision and maintain them?

Join this session to understand the notion of enterprise app stores and how to tackle a few important deployment decisions up front that will save pain and aggravation down the road.

3:45 pm - 4:15 pmCorporate Policies on Mobile Devices: A Legal Perspective
Scott P. Seder, Attorney at Law, Roberts McGivney Zagotta LLC

Many companies are still in the early stages of determining their mobile device strategies. Crucial to a successful implementation is understanding how mobile devices will impact day-to-day operations, external and internal communications, privacy, access and more – and then establishing policies that provide the right balance of governance and flexibility to establish a successful mobile initiative. In this session, learn about the ramifications of BYOD, and learn how you can implement a framework to identify the right policies for your organization.
