10 Myths About Virtual Mobile Infrastructure

    Lack iOS Support

    Myth #10: VMI is not supported on Apple.

    This is the most misleading myth. Yes, VMI usually relies on Android applications hosted in a data center. Consequently, people assume that these apps must not operate properly when accessed by iOS devices. That's false.

    VMI doesn't give you an "Android user experience" or "Apple user experience." Remote client apps provide an equally strong user experience on Android or iOS. Remember, VMI apps run in the data center. Therefore, UX depends on that data infrastructure and the app design, not the OS or device from which those apps are accessed.

"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.
