The Friday notebook - December 16, 2016

Learn about how mobile is eating the world, blog posts on BlackBerry, Teradici, and MAM, and our upcoming podcast with Sumit Dhawan.

Here’s what happened and what was interesting in the enterprise mobility and end user computing space in the week leading up to December 16, 2016.


Benedict Evans, an analyst at Andreessen-Horowitz, has put out a new version of his Mobile is eating the world presentation. It may not be directly about enterprise IT, but it’s essential for anyone who wants to understand the broader tech world. Set aside 30 minutes this afternoon and watch it.

We mentioned Windows 10 on ARM last week (and I’m writing an article about it for Monday) but there were some other interesting hardware innovations announced at Microsoft’s Windows Hardware Engineering Community event in Shenzhen. (Blog post from Terry Myerson | Keynote video) Again, not all directly enterprise-related, but still good to keep up on.

Appdome, providers of MAM and a unique approach to app wrapping, has partnered with Paris, France-based Appaloosa, providers of an enterprise app store platform.
