TMD completed its study into mobile device management for the Tasmanian Government in late 2011.
This study came about in response to demand from Agencies to identify a mechanism to manage their mobile and tablet devices more effectively. The trial evaluated how mobile device management software could support a range of Agency business needs such as monitoring Agency owned mobile devices, protecting corporate data, and enabling remote blocking and remote wiping.
The key findings of the study were:
- currently available mobile device management products do not sufficiently meet the business needs of Tasmanian Government Agencies
- carriers are heavily investing in the development of mobile device management software and the specific business needs that are required by Tasmanian Government Agencies may be available in the future.
TMD will continue to monitor mobile device management solutions and assess and refine Agency requirements in this sphere. For more information on mobile device management contact your TMD Account Manager or the TMD Service Management Centre.
