Inside IT: Enabling Native Email and Applications on Android Devices
IT Best Practices: Episode 92 – Intel has a Bring Your Own Device program for employees that has been very popular – so popular, in fact, that by the end of 2011 there were 6000 employees bringing their Android devices to work. But Intel IT faced limitations on the types of solutions they could provide Android users versus the users of other devices. That was mainly driven by the fact that the Android operating system had some security and manageability limitations. In this podcast we hear from Aideen Prendergast, Project Manager in the Small Form Factor Engineering Group at Intel IT. She talks about the challenges IT needed to address in order to deliver a better solution for Android users – one that would provide native email, calendar, and contacts.
