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:
- IT’s New World: Understanding Today’s Empowered Employee (Phil Simon) – July 18
- Endpoint Backup & Restore: Protect Everyone, Everywhere (Genentech/Roche) – Aug. 1
- Client Management: Simplifying Life for System Admins (The Ohio State University and JAMF Software) – Aug. 22
- Mind the Gap! Embracing Enterprise Mobility Management (Transport of London and TechTarget’s BrianMadden.com) – Sept. 12
- Security Update: Inside the Latest Threats (Sophos) – Sept. 26
- Working with the Business: Getting Past the Geek/Non-Geek Conflict (Leading Geeks) – Oct. 17

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Yoav Mor, multi-cloud solution evangelist at Cloudy...

When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...

The proper isolation of resources is essential for multi-tenant environments. The traditional approach to isolate resources is, however, rather heavyweight. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Igor Drobiazko, co-founder of elastic.io, drew upon his own experience with operating a Docker container-based infrastructure on a large scale and present a lightweight solution for resource isolation using microservices. He also discussed the implementation of microservices in data and application integrat...

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...

Containers have changed the mind of IT in DevOps. They enable developers to work with dev, test, stage and production environments identically. Containers provide the right abstraction for microservices and many cloud platforms have integrated them into deployment pipelines. DevOps and containers together help companies achieve their business goals faster and more effectively. In his session at DevOps Summit, Ruslan Synytsky, CEO and Co-founder of Jelastic, reviewed the current landscape of Dev...

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...

Updating DevOps to the latest production data slows down your development cycle. Probably it is due to slow, inefficient conventional storage and associated copy data management practices. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, in Product and Solution at Tintri, will talk about DevOps and cloud-focused storage to update hundreds of child VMs (different flavors) with updates from a master VM in minutes, saving hours or even days in each development cycle. He will also...
