By Don Reisinger  |  Posted 09-23-2010 Print

Security concerns, new product launches, changing market dynamics and rumors everywhere. Just a typical week for the CIO?

HP has launched a cloud-based management system for IT staff that will allow corporate administrators to keep tabs on workers while they're away from the office. While the name of the solution -- HP Cloud Services Enablement for Device Management as a Service -- doesn't exactly roll off the tongue, the offering allows IT staff to configure mobile devices, remotely diagnose issues, and enforce security policies.

The CIO Insight

As your workforce becomes more mobile, keeping a watchful eye on employees is becoming more difficult. HP's solution promises to help you do just that. Whether or not it will make you successful at safeguarding data on smartphones, notebooks, and other wireless products is up for debate. But it's worth considering if you want to find something to help you manage your mobile workforce.
