We're in the throes of a revolution, one that I think took many of us by surprise. Yes, people have been using cell phones for a long time, and quite a few have figured out how to use first-generation smart devices such as BlackBerries as true business appliances. But the meteoric rise of the iPhone has fundamentally transformed the Web user interface landscape, making it almost a necessity for companies with a Web presence to have "an app for that." Meanwhile, the perfect storm of the Android operating system and the cost-effectiveness of large-form touchscreen hardware have significantly complicated the decision-making process. Just a few years ago, a thin-client Web application was all that was needed; now you have to decide whether you want to go rich or go native.

You Don't Trust Me Anymore!

System administrators and programmers are feeling the pinch of numerous regulations that are interfering with how they do their jobs.

Editor's Note: This article is an extract of the white paper "You Don't Trust Me Anymore!"  available free from the MC White Paper Center. 


This may be the cry of your teenagers as you impose earlier curfews and restrictions on where they can roam. But usually, they've done something to deserve the curbs you're trying to place on their behavior. Unfortunately, the cry I often hear is coming from administrators and programmers as restrictions are being placed on their actions and the functions they are allowed to perform on the system. The difference between these folks and your teenagers is that they haven't done anything to "deserve" the restrictions. And that's their complaint: "What have I done? I've never stolen from the company and never will. Why are you taking away my ability to perform my job?"
