re: Dell Wyse Cloud Client Manager Tackles BYOD
Single source solutions such as this may be the option for future requirements as IT teams forgo the 'must be able to touch' legacy thought processes (even if it's their ICT supplier who does the touching / hosting) - sitting where I am working with both Government and Private level enterprise size customers it's a little hard to determine the actual end game they want to play.

I have some desiring the known, as in the Fusion Blackberry option (despite the ongoing delays and lack of real info on eta) and others willing to hand it all over to a 3rd party (hosted MDM such as AirWatch) with many looking at threaded services to cover selected groups within the organisation, MDM + MAM for some, MAM only for others.

However - the sell through for these customers relies strongly on the engagement process with many customers being targeted by their mobile carrier, their vistualisation partner, IT resellers, and end solutions resellers the confusion layers are deep and getting deeper.

I am recommending to my customers that engagement with the mobile carrier is a prerequisite step in all cases, ensuring that the end point devices can be reached to be managed in the first place is often overlooked by all parties - from there the customer requirements can be managed through the process of determination of must have, nice to have, don't need etc to get to a PoC / trial point and final deployment agreed to
