Google Work Profile (for Android)

Google Apps with Work Profile enable

As I have mentioned previously why I had to use Android, it was all due to support of Google's Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) that we depend upon Google Apps. With Android, it is better for Enterprise's Admin to manage (mobile) devices remotely, and safely, whether those mobile devices belong to Enterprise, or Users.

With Android, a kind of private "Container" is created independently with its own Apps and Data, like most Secured Container of other EMM. From Photo above you can see that I have new folder created for Work Apps. They are virtually the same to most of Google's basic Apps, but those apps were being managed heavily by my enterprise's IT. IT can set any kind of rules that fit in within corporate guidelines for safety, secrecy and etc.

Whilst for iOS, only part of regular apps, via specific account are being managed with limited capability. From this point of view I could see tradeoff why my Enterprise forced me to get another Android instead of trying to support both iOS and Android at the same time.

I will come back to this topic again when time permitted, to review pros and cons of Google's EMM versus Blackberry (and Good Technology) that we just dumped them. Cheers for now. And you can read more about Work Profile from Google' official site here.

In Thai: เอามาแชร์ (เรื่อง IT ล้วนๆ) เผื่อเป็นประโยชน์ครับ

สรุปคือ ถ้าใช้ iOS องค์กรแอบดูเครื่องเราได้จำกัด แต่ถ้าใช้ Android องค์กรดูได้แทบทุกอย่าง (จากทางไกล) ในมุมขององค์กร ข้อจำกัดของ iOS อาจไม่เป็นที่พึงประสงค์นัก เขาบังคับลง App ใหม่ แม้ซ้ำกัน เอาไว้ทำงาน เพื่อง่ายต่อการจัดการ ในกรณีเครื่องหายหรืออื่นๆ
