Your MDM Doesn’t Want You to Read This (But We Do!)

If you’ve ever worked with an MDM (Mobile Device Management) to build and manage an Android device fleet, you know how one-sided that relationship becomes once your hardware is in the field. You also know that’s because MDMs are built on a model that chiefly rewards shipping devices, not supporting them. It’s hard to blame them, either — in a world where getting devices to the edge has become a critical concern across dozens of industries, hardware talks. But if you’re scaling a mission critical Android device fleet, you’re already asking the kind of hard questions your MDM probably isn’t very eager to answer.

Manufacturers and Distributors Modernize Platforms and Solutions to Address Tax and Technology Challenges

The wave of digital transformation that has prompted businesses to migrate some applications to the cloud and re-evaluate process efficiency has officially hit the Manufacturing and Distribution (M&D) industry. Having shifted their sourcing to a handful of large overseas suppliers over the past decade, many companies were unprepared for COVID-19 lockdowns that increased demand for certain materials and introduced new business models and shopping habits as global supply chains were disrupted. In anticipation of the next worldwide crisis, M&Ds can refocus on their core businesses, streamline and automate tax management, and redesign their supply chains to be more flexible, scalable and risk-tolerant.

In this white paper, we will review some highlights from IDG’s Research’s MarketPulse Survey of employees at M&D organizations with revenues of between $250 million and $1 billion. The purpose of the research was to better understand from M&D employees the drivers behind decisions, challenges they are facing today, and any future-state technology plans.

Mobility Matters: Better Field Service Outcomes through IoT and Predictive Analytics

What’s the real cost of equipment downtime?

So it’s no surprise that a recent study by Field Technologies found the top two strategic initiatives for FSOs are improving customer satisfaction and increasing efficiency.

This brief discusses how the combination of predictive analytics based on data gathered by IoT sensors and the use of mobile devices combine to reduce unnecessary scheduled maintenance while improving the overall service experience for both FSOs and the organizations they serve.

Prepare for Your Microsoft Annual True-Up (and EA Renewal) – 14 Cost Saving Tips

True-Up and Enterprise Agreement (EA) renegotiation can be a tense time. There is a lot of money at stake. Microsoft likely grasps the ins and outs of licensing far better than you do, yet neither side truly knows how many licenses are used, and whether these licenses are the right size.

There is good news, however. Significant cost savings come from identifying unassigned or inactive licenses and reducing these costs through carefully curated license management, license redeployment, re-harvesting, and the re-assignment of inactive licenses. If you do so, you will have far fewer or even no wasted licenses.

One large enterprise, – okay very large – identified $14 million in potential annual savings through the CoreView Microsoft 365 Health Check. That enterprise used CoreView’s deep license analytics to renegotiate its EA deal – much to company executives delight!
