Mobile experts to share best practices for managing communications environments through a series of mobility-focused seminars and white papers

Orange, CT— May 3, 2012 — Tangoe, Inc., a leading global provider of enterprise communications lifecycle management software and related services, today designated May as the Month of Mobile. With the growth of mobility in nearly every enterprise, the recent availability of new tablet devices, and the release of new mobile operating systems, businesses face challenges that necessitate an integrated approach to mobility management that includes real-time cost control to prevent mobile bill shock. To address these new issues, the Month of Mobile will include sessions and content from Tangoe’s in-house experts that provide the tools and best practices necessary to address the most challenging issues associated with managing mobile communications within the enterprise.

“Tangoe is committed to leveraging its market leadership position to help global organizations overcome challenges posed by an increasingly complex mobile environment. As the flood of new devices continues to hit the market and the “bring your own device” (BYOD) trend continues to inundate IT departments, we will devote the month of May to addressing the most imminent and challenging mobile issues facing businesses today,” said Troy Fulton, director of product marketing, Tangoe. “Through a coordinated series of webcasts, seminars, and white papers, Tangoe experts will explain how to manage and secure mobile devices, monitor device usage, maintain policy compliance, and prevent unnecessary spend.”
