Cloud Desktop for BYOD: Native Android and HTML5 (Live Demo)

A session at droidcon 2012

  • Thorsten Hesse

Wednesday 14th March, 2012

10:00am to 10:30am (CET)

In a combination of presentation, case study and live demo we show how business and government organizations can securely integrate Android and Chrome devices into their existing IT environment, in particular with regard to BYOD concepts. We clarify how on the one hand organizations can make the best use of their existing backend systems (rights management, file- and print server, DMS, databases, MDM, fax…) while on the other hand leverage the advantages of modern mobile devices. This requires a new cloud desktop concept and twofold cooperation: 1. Native App & HTML5 In a live demo with a native app on an Android tablet/smartphone and with a HTML5 client on a Chromebook, we show how both approaches ideally complement each other, perfectly forming a total and complete concept. We also point out the differences in developing for both platforms and the resulting distinctions in functionality. 2. Openness & Security Using a real customer scenario at Cirquent in Germany, we illustrate how restrictive security concepts are leading to lower productivity without actually delivering any effective increase in security. Only an open desktop concept that delivers users with the functionality and usability they desire, keeps them from using uncontrollable and unsecure consumer cloud services and apps. Security is best provided by open concept apps which cater for encryption, mobile device management, auditing options and integration into the existing IT infrastructure and rights management.
