AirWatch: Companies should set strategies before picking mobile management solution

In the mobile era, both companies and employees want to access data from any location and at any time. Although it seems a great way to boost productivity, this trend creates new challenges for IT organizations, and CIOs are concerned about how to address these corporate mobile management issues. Cesar Berenguer, managing director for Latin America at AirWatch, said in a video interview with RCR Wireless News using Google Hangout, that companies should set their strategies before choosing a mobile management solution to adopt.

There are many acronyms related to mobile management: mobile device management (MDM), mobile application management (MAM), mobile content management (MCM) and mobile email management (MEM). How should companies combine all these management tools to address BYOD and build a good mobility strategy? What solutions do companies tend to adopt first? How should they build a mobile management strategy?

Berenguer addressed these questions during the interview and noted that future steps include allowing third players to share mobile applications and exchange information.

In addition, Berenguer commented on the Latin American operations of AirWatch. The company has more than 80 customers, primarily in Brazil and Mexico.
