Code 42 Launches “Apple-ization of the Enterprise” Initiative to Empower IT Pros Grappling with IT Consumerization and BYOD

Code 42 Software, Inc., developers of award-winning, private and public cloud-based endpoint backup solutions for consumers, businesses and the enterprise, today launched “Apple-ization of the Enterprise,” available at www.enterpriseappleization.com.

An evolution of the burgeoning consumerization of IT and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) trends, “Apple-ization” refers to the continued—and often user-led—introduction of intuitive, user-friendly, Apple-like technologies into the enterprise. These technologies frequently create data protection gaps due to the ongoing migration of sensitive data onto endpoint devices by “always-on” enterprise end users.

Code 42’s initiative provides an ongoing forum and resource for IT teams struggling to securely and confidently address this movement while also properly protecting enterprise data. The site is intended to be a one-stop shop for enterprise IT teams seeking relevant information, tools, techniques and checklists related to Apple-ization.

“Apple-ization confers significant benefits to both end users and the enterprise. Organizations see improvements with respect to convenience, efficiency and productivity. At the same time, though, Apple-ization presents important challenges for IT managers,” said Phil Simon, award-winning author, speaker and futurist. “To succeed today, IT professionals need new technologies, information and tools, and—most important—a new mindset. If done right, Apple-ization represents a major opportunity, rather than a burden. Smart companies are becoming more user-friendly and seeing the results.”

“Apple-ization creates an entirely new set of IT challenges related to integration, scaling and support for an already well-trodden domain,” said Matthew Dornquast, co-founder and chief executive officer (CEO) of Code 42. “We want to share with IT pros best practices we’ve learned from five years of supporting and protecting mission-critical data in large-scale, enterprise deployments of Apple technology.”

Simon will host and moderate an ongoing, free webinar series featuring real IT pros who will share personal Apple-ization stories and lessons learned. The initial schedule features a variety of high-profile IT innovators, including:

  • Arek Sokol, senior Mac engineer at Genentech/Roche
  • Tim Winningham, systems manager at The Ohio State University
  • And Jon Miller, head of mobility and digital asset management at Transport for London

They will co-present with industry leaders like TechTarget’s BrianMadden.com, JAMF Software and Sophos on the hottest IT topics related to Apple-ization, such as enterprise endpoint backup and restore, client management, enterprise mobility management and enterprise security. In addition, Leading Geeks—an organization dedicated to transforming how technology and the people who deliver it contribute to their companies—will provide insight into how enterprises can embrace Apple-ization by bridging the fundamental differences between IT pros and non-technical users.

The schedule for the first series of webinars is as follows:
