Managing Apps in the BYOA World

Dollarphotoclub_67155826-300x193Dropbox, BaseCamp, Office 365,  Evernote, HootSuite, CardMunch, and the list goes on.  There are an unlimited amount of cloud apps that people bring with them with their devices into your business.  The challenge to IT professionals is managing apps in a BYOA world  (Bring Your Own App). The problem is keeping your data secure while still allowing employees to use the apps they prefer.

The average employee brings with them not just 1 or 2 apps on their various devices, but an average of 21!  How does an IT professional wrap their head around which employee has what app on which device?   Is that app useful to productivity?   Is it secure on the business’ network?   Can you block it or approve it or encourage other employees to use it if it’s in the cloud?  Just how does the IT department go about managing apps?

Looking for Unbiased Reporting

Posted by Webmaster on Tuesday, November 17, 2015   By Greta Weiner

webfriendlyCamerashootpicAs Jews, we are often confronted with bias in reporting affairs in the Middle East. We’re almost immune to it. But with the recent increase in violence in Israel, not a day goes by without headlines screaming “ Palestinians killed by Israeli violence!” Putting the emphasis on the victim’s recourse rather than the perpetrators instigating the attacks.

Three examples: 

Saturday, October 10th. L.A. Times. “Four Palestinian Teens Killed in Israeli Violence” Actually there were six that died that day. Two were Israelis stabbed by two Palestinian teens. Two were the same Palestinian teens who stabbed the Israelis. Two other Palestinian teens were killed during a violent riot. And unfortunately, two people died because their house was next to a Hamas building that exploded in an air strike. The LA Times later amended the headline to read, “Four Palestinian Teens Killed in Israeli-Palestinian Violence”.

October 15th. MSNBC News. Palestinian reporter Ayman Mohyeldin, live on air explaining that a Palestinian protestor was shot by Israeli soldiers and it appeared he did not have a bomb, gun or …..knife. Except they were showing Mohyeldin’s own footage where the man clearly had a knife of five inches or longer, as pointed out by anchor Jose Diaz-Balart.
