If used in positive way this is great. If the data in the mobile used for corporate and personal ppurpose being stored and controlled by the employer then it can also be used against the employee. But looking at technology its good.

Citrix is the pioneering company in the mobility management of the employees in terms of apps, data and device. IBM seems to be entering in this segment and this will be a tough competition for Citrix. As IBM is already having very good knowhow in server OS.

That's an interesting question Rick. Either way, the need they're trying to fulfill is quite real. Increasingly, we use our mobile phones for receiving & sending work email and other communications, as well as for personal communications.

Of course, there are those businesses which will keep the two seperate entirely by having a different device for work-related use from one's personal device. But otherwise, yes, it seems as though with services for personal and business use becoming containerized, billing requirements could easily be placed in similar containers and to do so would be helpful to end users both individuals and companies alike.

@hm, i do not know whether your comments are sarcastic but i don't know why IBM's entry into this domain is of much help apart from the reason that they have big pockets. The security is a different domain in which IBM is still looking for hunt.

Rick, this could be a next reality. I have seen people carrying two or three mobiles. Such a move will help people immensely.
