Worry-Free Mobile Device Management and a New Video

Today we announced our new offering of Avalanche Managed Services. I won’t go into too much detail, but we now provide a fully functioning mobile device management solution to organizations that may not have the resources available to proactively monitor and manage the wireless ecosystem on a 24×7 basis. We’ve leveraged Avalanche, and have created a solution that gives subscribers peace of mind knowing their enterprise is securely and efficiently being managed, without them ever needing to lift a finger. In essence, we do all the work. We’re also hosting a live, free Webinar to introduce the new offering on Thursday.

To continue to the Managed Services topic, VDC recently had an interesting write-up on Managed Services in the mobility space, specifically looking at Intel and McAfee. The write-up has some pretty astounding figures in terms of grown within the space. Check it out and tell us what you think.

Finally, I found a new Avalanche video produced by our friends at Datalogic Mobile via their Facebook page this morning. Stop by and see what a nice good they did!

30% Growth In Rugged Computer Market?

This article from InformationWeek should make all of our device manufacturer friends out there happy. David Krebs, one of the most respected voices in the industry, with VDC Research is projecting solid growth in ruggedized handheld computers across the globe, and especially in Europe.

One of the items in the piece of particular interest is the expected increase in “beyond the fence” devices. As Mr. Krebs points out, “The real growth driver for rugged handheld devices continues to be with the ‘beyond the fence’ field mobile workers, which is the least-penetrated market segment and is only now beginning to see the benefits of making certain processes mobile.”

I know our readers cover a broad base of industries, so what do you think about Mr. Krebs thoughts on “beyond the fence” mobility?

Good Webcast From VDC Research

We sat in on a webcast from VDC research the other day, and I think you’ll find it very informative and interesting. The webcast, titled “Will Market Interest in Mobile Managed Services Convert to Customer Contracts for Mobile Managed Services in 2010?”, explores the topic of mobile managed services and you can download the slides, or view the recorded webcast here. Check it out and tell us what you think.
