Mobile Smash Puny IT Policy


The deputy CTO of New York City’s public school system, Tom Kambouras, has warned school principals that the widespread use of mobile devices, from iPod Touches to Android smartphones, by school employees has overrun the IT department’s capabilities to the point that as of November 10th, no new devices were being allowed to register on the system-wide Wi-Fi network.

The fact that smartphones and tablets are bringing a decade’s worth of infrastructure planning in large organisations to its knees is just the first indication of how much mobile is going to change the way we access information, communicate and work.

You don’t need a mobile strategy; if your strategy doesn’t include mobile, you’re screwed.
