Of course they tried to fix it, but you can't put a speed train on wooden tracks, so it was always falling off the rails.
"A few of us were growing a global leader in the device management (MDM/UEM) space, and we grew frustrated with the limitations imposed on us by old ideas and legacy technology. Google and Netflix were changing customer expectations for what edge devices could do and we couldn't keep up.
We left to fix what was broken, but we didn't want to just upgrade an industry--we wanted to transform it. Our goal was to deliver to enterprise the full capabilities of the digital edge, which meant:
- Total control over applications and data, both at rest and in motion. You choose where to store your data, which applications and updates to run and when to run them.
- Full visibility into all data, from all devices, on all platforms in all markets--a fully actualized edge of everything everywhere.
- Edge-first design to unleash the full capabilities of edge devices. Deep-learning insights on systems-level data. On-device collaboration. Autonomous management. Real-time adaptability. Whatever you can dream of.
The whole industry was founded at a time of Blockbuster and DVDs, so it wasn't built for cloud. Of course they tried to fix it, but you can't put a speed train on wooden tracks, so it was always falling off the rails.
This is the dawn of a new era in edge capability, and we are proud to offer up a world of insights and opportunities by empowering the full potential of the digital edge."
