    'Native' User Experience

    Myth #4: VMI doesn't provide a "native" user experience.

    VMI skeptics worry that the user experiences won't feel "native," meaning virtual apps won't operate as fast or responsively as local ones. In the past, this was an issue. Today, communication protocols are good enough to make finger scrolling, swipes and taps feel native. Test it for yourself.

    'Native' User Experience

    Myth #4: VMI doesn't provide a "native" user experience.

    VMI skeptics worry that the user experiences won't feel "native," meaning virtual apps won't operate as fast or responsively as local ones. In the past, this was an issue.

"Bring Your Own Device" (BYOD) has created a cluster-jam for the business world, and virtual mobile infrastructure (VMI) is the latest technology to confront this challenge. The struggle is more cultural than technological – against VMI, commentators have spun a web of myths. Israel Lifshitz, founder and CEO of Nubo, has taken on the mission to set the record straight.

According to Lifshitz, we need to reexamine VMI because conventional "enterprise mobility" has failed. Mobile device management (MDM), enterprise mobility management (EMM) and mobile application management (MAM) have all sputtered. IT professionals complain of poor user experiences, low adoption, high costs and insufficient security. It often feels like vendors are trying to band-aid device-based BYOD with a new acronym per year. That won't work.

Knowing that enterprise mobility users are overwhelmingly dissatisfied, Lifshitz examines the myths that might deter organizations from trying VMI.
