If you are one of the countless enterprises trying to figure out how to tackle mobility, you realize it's not an easy endeavor.  The trendline points towards employees wanting to use their own devices (BYOD) or Corporate Owned Personally Enabled (COPE) which makes things more than a little interesting.  Hairball issues like having to make sure you're not violating any compliance requirements or unintentionally putting intellectual property at risk have real consequences - like an unintended career change.  

Figuring out how to manage myriad devices that are connecting to your information technology assets and keep personal information from comingling with enterprise data makes for a complicated set of decisions even before you select an application development platform or vendor.

I was at Framehawk's labs the other day doing a deep dive on their most current release and was duly impressed by how far their product has come in the past few releases.  As luck would have it, Gartner was there a few days later and put together this video.  So instead of getting into the details, I figured I'd just let Gunnar Berger from Gartner tell the story.
