Android 11 features zero in on security, privacy

New Android 11 features will likely not represent a major shift for the enterprise, but industry observers believe they will help IT professionals better manage mobile devices.

Google released the first developer preview of the updated OS last month, with a final release expected in the third quarter of 2020. Among the changes are a few items — including improved biometric support and limited-time permissions for applications — that experts said would affect businesses.

Eric Klein, an independent analyst, said the improvements reflect Google’s larger efforts to appeal to enterprise customers.

“The way in which they’re approaching their overall strategy as an organization — from Chrome to the cloud and G Suite [productivity applications] — they’re continuing to refine their assets for business use,” he said.

A focus on privacy and security

Android 11, per the preview, includes changes intended to bolster privacy and security. One feature offers users greater control over what applications can do; it lets users — or IT administrators — give apps one-time-only permissions to access such things as location data or a phone’s camera and microphone.

According to Google, this builds on an Android 10 feature, in which users could permit an application to access such data and features, but only while the app was in use.

Andrew HewittAndrew Hewitt

Forrester analyst Andrew Hewitt said the granular data control offered by this feature is in line with modern enterprise security.

“[It] is more philosophically aligned [than before] with a zero-trust strategy — where a user only has access to what they need, and nothing more,” he said.

Klein said the feature will work as part of an overall device management strategy to help prevent bad actors from taking user data.

“There are many ways enterprises are protecting themselves that are well-known, basic security hygiene: restricting application usage, blacklisting apps — things of that nature,” he said, adding that controlling app permissions is a further step along that journey.

Android 11 will also reportedly include greater biometric support, notably by making it easier to integrate biometric authentication into apps and allowing developers to determine which biometric inputs — like fingerprints, iris scans and face scans — they consider strong or weak.

Hewitt said such a feature will interest IT professionals as they look to eliminate passwords — a frequent pain point in ensuring enterprise security.

“While passwordless authentication still remains immature in adoption, it’s certainly on the minds of many mobility management professionals,” he said.

Other effects on the enterprise

While security improvements are an integral part of Android 11, they are not the only ones set to have an impact on companies.

Holger MuellerHolger Mueller

Holger Mueller, vice president and principal analyst at Constellation Research, said he saw changes like improved 5G support — including a feature that determines whether a device is on a metered or unmetered network and adjusts data traffic accordingly — as new and necessary steps for Android.

The implementation of new messaging and chat “bubbles” — notifications that float on top of other applications and thus enable text conversations while multi-tasking — was taken as a heartening sign for productivity.

“[It’s] good to see Google not giving up on messaging,” he said. “The new messaging will likely improve [the] everyday user experience on Android.”

Hewitt said that with Android 11, Google has implemented new processes and options to ensure OS updates do not break app compatibility. Google announced methods, for example, to help developers test for compatibility by turning changes on or off — making it easier to determine which new OS behavior might pose problems.

“[Compatibility] has been a perennial issue in enterprise mobility,” Hewitt said.

Competing with iOS

Klein said the improvements in Android 11 — especially those related to privacy and security — reflect Google’s desire to compete for the enterprise. He noted Android’s reputation for security has long lagged behind that of iOS.

“There’s a perception that it’s just not secure — that hasn’t gone away yet,” he said. “Many [administrators] will say, ‘I’m not trusting an Android device. I’m not trusting my employees with Android devices.’ That perception is still there, and it’s something Google has to overcome. I think they are overcoming it.”

Google, Klein said, has historically faced criticism for the cadence of its security patches and its reliance on partners to push out those patches. The company has been working to improve that process, he said.

“In order to [compete] effectively — to ensure that peace of mind IT requires for mass rollouts — they’re going to have to … show they’re serious about security and privacy,” he said.

Students ‘will use tech to embrace seamless learning’

The next decade will see a shift in how children are taught in schools, with technology helping young people and teachers place a greater emphasis on learning outside the classroom.

That’s the view of Anthony Salcito, Vice-President of Education at Microsoft, who delivered a keynote speech at the annual Bett educational technology conference in London on Wednesday.

Salcito said that students today were increasingly keen to start having an impact the world, and are using technology to develop their own ways of learning that fit in with their personal lives. Rather than using tech for the sake of it, more young people were using it to learn new skills and collaborate. That will see teachers and their pupils working more closely together to extend education from hour-long, classroom-based lessons into any place, at any time, on any device.

“I think a big theme of the next decade is technology that enables schools to act as a learning hub, a central place for education, but the focus is on the rest of a student’s learning pathway, not just what happens in the classroom,” Salcito said.

“When you think about the three big investments that schools make, they’re constantly thinking about what’s happening with instruction in the classroom, what’s happening with the operations of their school, and also learning beyond the classroom. Over the past few decades, the focus has been heavily weighted on the classroom experience. I think we will see a shift, where schools will create a foundation of inclusive, flexible, data-driven buildings and spaces that will enable students to learn beyond those walls.”

Salcito’s keynote at Bett, an event attended by 850 companies and nearly 35,000 people, was interspersed with talks from Barbara Holzapfel, General Manager of Education Marketing at Microsoft, and Daniel McDuff, a Principal Researcher at the company.

Holzapfel pointed to upcoming research Microsoft has conducted with the Economist Intelligence Unit. It showed teachers understood the value of social and emotional learning. Technology could “help students and teachers connect”, she said.

Salcito pointed to two Microsoft tools that are already helping teachers and their students work better together – and apart.

PowerPoint Live is allowing young people to remotely log into an interactive presentation delivered by an educator. That can be automatically translated into more than 60 languages with a transcript that can be studied after the lesson has finished.

Meanwhile, Teams is helping entire classes collaborate while they are at home and in the classroom, allowing them to personalise their learning and get what they need, when they need it.

Rather than feel under threat from technology, teachers will be crucial in this new world of always-on learning, both Salcito and Holzapfel stated.

“Technology is changing the world,” he said. “The way in which we work and the jobs we will need are becoming far more dynamic; new careers are being invented and created, while existing careers are changing. We, as people, have got to be nimble and constantly adjust, too.

“That’s why educators are so important and why we need innovative teachers. The need for schools to get students ready to fundamentally change the world is in progress. What we want educators to do is not be bound by the structure of a 40-minute lecture, classroom dynamic or assessment that’s connected to a curriculum, but recognise their goal and mission to expand upon every student’s potential.

“The best innovation that inspires most young people is the teacher.”

Teachers across the world are facing increased workloads and pressure. The UK government recently announced an increase in starting salaries for those joining the profession in England in a bid to attract more graduates into classrooms. In Microsoft’s upcoming research, nearly 70 percent of teachers cited time constraints as their biggest hurdle to providing more personalized content to their students. It revealed technology can help clear away those obstacles by freeing up as much as 30 percent of teachers’ time, so they can spend more time responding to individual and group needs.

Salcito said those in charge of schools and education systems need to shift their focus from tests and grades to helping young people learn in a way that will help them build the right skills for the future. All jobs will use technology in some way, he added, whether it’s a lawyer using artificial intelligence to scan through large amounts of text, or a painter selling their artwork online.

“We need to recognise that every student learns differently and has different aspirations and accessibility needs,” he said. “Personalised learning can unleash an individual to be their best, to connect their passions, energy, talents, interests, their special needs, to make their learning journey unique and untethered by the bounds of classrooms, schedules and the curriculum.

“We’ve got to shift our focus away from supporting and progressing the system, to elevating the potential of all our children. That’s what technology is able to do. I think we’ve got to celebrate that shift, and remember that leaders need to shift their thinking and ask different questions about what’s possible.”

Salcito’s speech came on the first day of Bett, which runs for four days at the ExCeL. Microsoft is a worldwide partner of the event, with a large stand showcasing its work in digital skills and coding, as well as Surface, third-party devices designed for the classroom, and Minecraft: Education Edition.

Geek gifts 2019: Think Opex, not Capex with subscriptions

Geek gifts are undergoing a paradigm shift not unlike the enterprise IT migration to public cloud. Resource ownership and gift supply chain management are so passé — let any number of subscription services entertain and delight your geek for you!

Just as Amazon has eliminated the toil that used to be involved in holiday shopping, from schlepping to the mall to battling for a parking space to waiting in line at a register, subscription services can step in and take over even selecting and shipping gifts online. Name an item, interest or type of entertainment — there’s almost always a subscription service out there to bring it forth to your geek, on a regular basis, often for a full year. Bacon, for example. Craft beer. E-Books. Video games.

“An HBO Now subscription so you can watch The Watchmen on your flights to and from conferences, or Apple Music so you can drown out the screaming babies on the plane,” suggested one of our road warrior geek friends.

Our geek consultants this year rave about LootCrate for the geekily inclined. There are gift box subscriptions for every conceivable fandom, from Harry Potter to Marvel Comics to Hello Kitty.

“It’s all kinds of geeky goodness,” summed up one of our geek advisors.

Subscription services are also available for truly hardcore geeks who never stop talking shop long enough to watch movies or read comic books, such as a membership to document collaboration service Coda.io, or Zapier for home automation management.

The latest in gadgets, both practical and fun

As always, the cardinal rule of buying gifts for geeks is: know thy geek. Some geeks can’t get enough Funko Pops. Other geeks’ dearest wish is to get rid of the clutter they already have. Some geeks will be thrilled with beer delivered monthly to their doorstep — others would have much more fun making their own. For the DIY geeks, or traditionalists who want to wrap something themselves, gadgets and doodads still abound.

“I’m usually a ‘late early adopter’ of new tech toys, so I might not [want] anything crazy,” said one such geek we know. “[But] one of my favorite not-so-new things is the PicoBrew home brewing appliance.”

PicoBrew is pricey (the Pico C for craft beer homebrew enthusiasts is priced at $399.00), and not everyone likes beer. There’s also a $125 cocktail bitters kit one of our geeks had their eye on.

“It lets you be a bit of a mad scientist and drink the results,” he said.

For teetotaling or practically minded geeks, our geek advisors pointed out useful gadgets such as the iFixit Pro Tech Toolkit, reMarkable digital notepad or Rocketbook.

“It’s like a Kindle, but a writing tablet, perfect for those who like the feel of writing stuff but don’t want an extremely bright or distracting tablet,” said one geek expert of the reMarkable pad. “[Rocketbook] is like a notebook, but you can use it like a whiteboard, as the pages wipe clean with a damp cloth. You can also pair it with an app and upload your notes to the cloud.”

Geeks with a quirky sense of humor may delight in somewhat pointless gadgets, such as the Qwerkywriter or a Makey Makey kit that can turn anything into a keyboard, from bananas to water buckets.

“I don’t know if this is actually a good product,” said one of our geek advisors of Qwerkywriter. “But the idea of a mechanical keyboard for an iPad makes me laugh.”

Budget-friendly humorous geek gift suggestions include the time-honored coffee mug and some truly bizarre drink coasters.  

Perennial favorites: Star Wars mania strikes back

Star Wars already led our geek gift recommendations in 2015, but could have again this year, with the launch of Disney+ and The Mandalorian series (Baby Yoda!), along with the hotly anticipated Dec. 20 release of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Even after all these years, it’s hard to go wrong with Star Wars swag for many geeks. Not every geek is part of this fandom, but one of our geek advisors reported there is a strong correlation between enterprise IT geeks and Star Wars fans: Amazon suggested to him that those who bought Gene Kim’s The Unicorn Project book also ordered Rebel Alliance stickers, he said.

Perennial favorites in the non-Star Wars category include all the other major fandoms with movies coming out, such as Wonder Woman and Ghostbustersdinner and a movie, anyone? Geeks also still covet Sonos smart speaker devices, drones and Raspberry Pis, including the latest Raspberry Pi 4.

“New hardware, including a gigabit NIC, finally!” one of our geek experts said of the Pi 4. “Being able to cluster these and run k3s is also super cool.”

Much as geeks love home automation with toolkits such as Arduino and Hue Play, consider the potential privacy implications of devices such as Ring before you gift them, our geek friends warn.

“I would avoid anything that is going to record you and later be used by law enforcement or in other ways you didn’t intend, such as Ring, Alexa or Google Home,” said one. (If only we’d had this insight back in 2016!)

Microsoft Ignite 2018 conference coverage

Introduction

Microsoft continues to gain market momentum fueled in part by an internal culture shift and the growing popularity of the Azure cloud platform that powers the company’s popular Office 365 product.

When CEO Satya Nadella took the helm in 2014, he made a concerted effort to turn the company away from its proprietary background to win over developers and enterprises with cloud and DevOps ambitions.

To reinforce this new agenda, Microsoft acquired GitHub, the popular software development platform, for $7.5 billion in June and expanded its developer-friendly offerings in Azure — from Kubernetes management to a Linux-based distribution for use with IoT devices. But many in IT have long memories and don’t easily forget the company’s blunders, which can wipe away any measure of good faith at a moment’s notice.

PowerShell, the popular automation tool, continues to experience growing pains after Microsoft converted it to an open source project that runs on Linux and macOS systems. As Linux workloads on Azure continue to climb — around 40% of Azure’s VMs run on Linux according to some reports — and Microsoft releases Linux versions of on-premises software, PowerShell Core is one way Microsoft is addressing the needs of companies with mixed OS environments.

While this past year solidified Microsoft’s place in the cloud and open source arenas, Nadella wants the company to remain on the cutting edge and incorporate AI into every aspect of the business. The steady draw of income from its Azure product and Office 365 — more than 135 million users — as well as its digital transformation agenda, have proven successful so far. So what’s in store for 2019?

This Microsoft Ignite 2018 guide gives you a look at the company’s tactics over the past year along with news from the show to help IT pros and administrators prepare for what’s coming next on the Microsoft roadmap.
