The “consumerization of IT” is a key term used by organizations to describe the influx of consumer tech in business. Employees are increasingly purchasing smartphone devices and expecting big enterprise IT support departments to allow them to access company email systems, intranet resources, and line of business applications. This presents a number of challenges for IT, especially when employees want to use their own personal equipment at work.
Microsoft recognizes this increasingly common trend and plans to include a management client on Windows 8 ARM tablets to potentially position them as “bring your own” devices for employees. Although some organizations have started to licence and use GOOD technology to manage iOS and Android email…
Colin Giles, Nokia’s executive vice president of sales, has announced that he’s stepping down. It follows the company’s dour financial results for Q1 and will lead to a restructuring of the company’s sales organization, aiming to strip layers from what’s currently in place. Giles has been with Nokia since 1992 and was heavily involved in the company’s movements in China and the larger Asia market. However, he had only been involved in Nokia’s Leadership Team for just under a year. He will stay with the team until June 30 and cites a desire to be closer to his family following his departure. Announced through Nokia’s official channels, the process aims to “ensure greater customer focus” — we suppose that will involve more than just white polycarbonate.

In the latest blog in Microsoft’s excellent series on Windows 8 development, the company goes into detail on its new operating system’s power management practices. There’s an intense amount of detail, but Microsoft focused on the concept of “focus on the foreground” — Metro apps will act much like modern smartphone apps, with background apps using minimal resources based on a specific set of background capabilities. Microsoft goes on to outline the three possible states of apps: actively running in the foreground, suspended in the background, and performing a defined activity in the background.
While each scenario is fairly self-explanatory, Microsoft goes into detail on each one, outlining situations in which they occur and in which…
Worried your PlayStation Vita is going to be so full of repurchased PSP content that you won’t be be able to store it all? Yeah, neither are we — but if you want another place to keep your Vita’s picture, video, music and game content, Sony says your PC and PS3 will do nicely. An application page on the Japanese PlayStation website details a Vita app that lets users transfer data between the three platforms, noting that content can be purchased on the PC or PS3, and then transferred to the Vita for use later. Gamers looking to save scratch on that not-so-optional memory card will be able to use this content sharing feature to get the most out of whatever size storage they can afford. Sure, 4GB of storage the cheapest Vita memory card offers isn’t ideal, but at least Sony is throwing you a bone to make it work.

Intel put some disaster management tech on display during a pre-IDF event yesterday and lucky for you, we got some hands-on time. The showcase focused on three main areas of disaster management: mitigation, preparedness and response. It included technologies such as connectivity provisions for disabled networks, energy management for distressed power grids, and — by far to most impressive item on display — fireballs! These spherical, rugged, low-cost, autonomous sensors are designed to be thrown into a fire and report data such as temperature, free-volatiles and air quality to first responder trucks via WiFi. Vital information such as the hottest spot and the chemical composition of a fire can be sent to both the firefighters’ smartphones and the backend offices. Initial readings make it easier to assess the situation before sending in human life. Check out the fireballs and more of this disaster management tech in our gallery below.

The merging of our smartphone and car interfaces is progressing, but at a rather slow pace. Various crossover apps and accessories have come out but few are really capturing the imaginations of drivers, and slow updates mean the systems are outdated a year after they launch. Well, I expect that will also be the case with Lexus’s latest system, but at least it’s an improvement.
By using the eDestination app (warning: autoplaying video), Lexus owners with Enform-equipped infotainment systems (the LX 570 we just reviewed has it, of course) can store up to 200 locations on their phone or in the web app, and send them to the car’s system for easy access.
Of course, you could just as easily keep the info on your phone and get turn-by-turn from Google Navigation or what have you, but I guess there’s something to be said for making use of that big dash LCD.
I’m pretty sure the days of these patchwork solutions are coming to a close — a little touch of basic web standards and some smart platform work by the automakers and you’ve got tools that can be accessed from car, phone, or desktop.
Of course, that won’t stop foolish tourists from driving off cliffs.
Customer Relationship Management is an old business. There are tons of CRM solutions, both generic and industry specific. Mobile development shop MConcierge has recently announced a new solution for CRM in the hospitality industry that they’re calling GRM: Guest Relationship Management. According to MConcierge, the point of GRM is to provide a top quality experience for guests that goes beyond just an average hotel stay. “Guests aren’t simply buying a room but an experience. By building more unique preferences the hotel brand can better customize the stay,” says Anthony Zebrowski-Rubin, CEO of MConcierge. “By building a profile of a guest based on onsite transactions, on and offsite interests, hotel preferences, and real time social profiled preferences contextualized to the type of property, the guest profile arms the hotel with information to action real positive communication with the guests.”
For the hotels, GRM incorporates online social profiling, a mobile loyalty program, and direct-to-consumer marketing. For the guests, GRM allows them to use the app to interact with the hotel — requesting wake up calls, asking concierge for recommendations, etc.

Here’s how GRM is supposed to work:
- Stage 1: A guest books with the hospitality brand. MConcierge’s software collects all “open graph” data from social media websites such as Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter and Tripit. The data is fed into the GRM platform which groups, clusters and populates the data directly into the guest’s profile.
- Stage 2: The guest downloads the hospitality brand’s free mobile application onto their smartphone. The application rewards the guest for every activity performed using the mobile application with loyalty points for immediate on‐premise redemption.
- Stage 3: GRM communicates with the guest by personalized pre‐stay, on‐premise and post‐stay special offers. This reward program helps to increase client loyalty using customized customer campaigns while reducing room acquisition cost through a direct‐to‐client-booking engine.
It’ll be interesting to see if GRM improves the hotel experience for people. Maybe I’ve just been staying in the wrong hotels all this time. Actually, I’m sure that’s it.

SugarSync, a close competitor to file sharing services like Crate and Dropbox, just added a mobile device management feature to their web interface. The new service takes advantage of SugarSync’s web-based upload system to control which files appear on which devices, thereby allowing you to send specific files to a phone or laptop directly and remove said files when necessary. Think of it as a sort of filesystem remote control. You can also see what data appears on which device (it works with iOS devices right now) and you can update the local folders on any device connected to your SugarSync account.
The feature will appear in SugarSync accounts over the next few days.
In this release, SugarSync’s new Mobile Device Management feature gives users the ability to view and control their data on their iOS mobile devices from within the Web console, making it the easiest way to get files from your computer to your iPhone or iPad. SugarSync will be rolling Mobile Device Management out to the other mobile platforms in the future as well. Today, users with iOS devices can:
Transfer files or entire folders to your iPhone or iPad from the Web. No wires needed. Simply view all the synced data on your iPhone or iPad from the Web. Easily refresh files or entire folders on your iPhone or iPad with a single click.
SugarSync also announced an update Blackberry app with improvements to the interface as well as a direct connection to the Blacklberry email app. SugarSync users can also get unlimited free 500MB account upgrades for referrals, an improvement over the previous limited-time offer. For every free 5GB account you refer, you get half a gigabyte of sweet, sweet storage.
