New employee? New mobile device? No prob! HP's approach to BYOD

Imagine a network intelligent enough to recognize a user’s new device, know what it’s doing, and who the user is … smart enough to deliver data and device security, along with all the apps the user needs to be productive … all in a totally integrated framework and in a matter of minutes.


HP’s new secure BYOD services throw a whole new light on the BYOD phenomenon, enabling businesses to embrace the trend and exploit it for maximum user engagement, satisfaction, and productivity.


Jordan Whitmarsh, Worldwide Mobility Lead for HP Technology Services Consulting, explains how it all works in the video below, recorded at HP Discover 2014 in Las Vegas in June.



Important Update 9.28.14: If you’re attending the Gartner Symposium ITxpo 2014, don’t miss Yanick Pouffary’s session on Mobilizing Business (the Symposium is currently sold out, but Gartner is running a wait list here). Yanick is HP Distinguished Technologist and Chief Technologist for Network Services, and she’ll be explaining how businesses can change BYOD from a nuisance into a competitive advantage – more here. Plus, get a guided tour of our Mobility Transformation Experience Workshop (on Oct. 8), and visit our Zero-to-Productive demo in the HP booth at the show.


You can read more about HP’s approach to BYOD in Kitty Chow’s post Take new employees from zero to productive in minutes with HP solutions, featuring a great video by mobility expert Dave Banthorpe.


In his session at Discover with Eric Brandenburg, Jordan looked at some other ways to drive network and mobility efficiency, including HP’s own implementation of Microsoft Lync for more than 410,000 users. Check out the slides from the presentation: Maximizing the value of your Microsoft mobility and collaboration investments

I wonder if this new advance could be applied to the sphere of education. Smartphones are finding thier way into more and more students' hands. Even in developing countries, millions of young people are going mobile. Why am I not reading more stories about how such advances can work in education.
