MDM is Dead. It’s Time to Shift to Android DevOps

Alright, so maybe not completely dead, but Mobile Device Management (MDM) - while necessary - cannot (alone) meet the needs of innovative, agile businesses, especially when customer experience and value are on the line.

With MDM, you can’t control the intake of changes to a fleet - risking widespread downtime - or debug your applications in real-time to prevent poor user experience. Enter Android DevOps where quality and speed are at the heart of dedicated device management.

According to Sam Guckenheimer of Microsoft Azure, “For a DevOps team...everything they do is about making a customer’ experience better.” Android DevOps enables businesses to focus on their business - not the platform - so they can deliver the ultimate customer experience.

Continue reading to learn more about how making the shift to Android DevOps can help you get back to what matters most: delighting your customers.

“Not Your Father’s” Online Video Platform

Online video platforms (OVPs) first launched in the late 1990s and early 2000s with a similar promise to the once-iconic automobile brand: “Not your father’s Oldsmobile” campaign. However, as OVPs evolved, partly to address our insatiable appetite for video, they became more and more complex. Tools for every step of the video-delivery process—from ingestion to storage to encoding, and so forth—came with their own set of shiny knobs and dials. Configurations and procedures for even trivial tasks required a study of user manuals, causing disenchantment, stress, and aversion all around. Cloudinary is excited to be launching new, game-changing video-management capabilities today to tackle that challenge.
