10 Myths About Virtual Mobile Infrastructure

  • 10 Myths About Virtual Mobile Infrastructure-

    Expensive Infrastructure

    Myth #5: VMI data centers and infrastructure costs are too expensive.

    IT leaders often assume that VMI solutions will cost more than MDM, EMM and MAM. If you look strictly at installation costs, yes, VMI is pricier upfront. However, EMM solutions run up a giant tab over time.

    With device-based BYOD solutions, IT must deal with lost and stolen devices, OS and app upgrades, patches, maintenance and end-user support, not to mention app development and deployment. When you factor in the required staff and labor, conventional mobility solutions become extravagantly expensive.

    With VMI, those headaches are non-issues. You don't need to manage a network of devices, nor must you continuously vet, approve and containerize apps.

"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.
