Why are we here?

We live in a time when more pre-schoolers can use a smartphone app than can tie their shoes. How does government prepare to meet the information needs of these budding citizens? Mobile Gov means providing information and services to the public anywhere and anytime.

Mobile Gov on GovLoop is from the Office of Citizen Services and Innovative Technologies in the U.S. General Services Administration. We look forward to working with you to clear a path to citizen-centric mobile government info and services!

Title: Insider Security Issues

"The consumerization of computing has changed the IT landscape. Employees can and do now access corporate data from a multitude of devices in a multitude of locations. Where the ‘insider threat’ was once posed only by the occasional malcontent employee, it is now comes from every naive employee on the payroll."

In a recent blog looking at emerging issues in mobility for federal agencies, I suggested that we’re shifting from work/life balance to work/life integration:

Work/Life Integration Replaces Work/Life Balance – For better or worse, changing lifestyles and demographics are blurring the line between work and leisure, creating an always on, always connected ethos. This is a key driver in the adoption of mobile devices. As demonstrated by the early skirmishes over Bring Your Own Device (BYOD), agencies will need to rethink their approaches to enterprise security and device management to accommodate these next generations  

Interesting that I got push back in terms of IT’s role in enabling this.  Strategies like BYOD are predicated on the idea that this is a good thing, but some have suggested that IT is playing a negative role here in enabling this ‘tethering’. 

Your thoughts – does IT need to consider the social ramifications of new mobile innovations on the workforce more thoroughly?  For example, is giving users the ability to manage their work media consumption sufficient or should we create more of a lockdown mechanism that enforces ‘off time’?

Google Maps returns to iPhone:

From Yahoo news:
...
The world's most popular online mapping system returned late Wednesday with the release of the Google Maps iPhone app. The release comes nearly three months after Apple Inc. replaced Google Maps as the device's built-in navigation system and inserted its own map software into the latest version of its mobile operating system.

Title: Military Health Systems and Mobile Technology


The MHS wants to go mobile – and has, in many ways, with 10 apps now available for free on iTunes and Google Play through the Department of Defense’s National Center for Telehealth and Technology (T2), including one that tracks anxiety, depression and other symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder. The U.S. Army is nearly halfway into a five-year deal to use Diversinet’s mCare platform for communicating with wounded soldiers and also tracks the health of some special forces with Zephyr Technologies monitoring gear.
