FMA deploys vendor’s MDM and mobility platform

The Financial Markets Authority (FMA) has deployed Good Technology’s mobile device management (MDM) solution, Good for Enterprise, and the Good Dynamics Secure Mobility platform to mobilise both its business processes and workforce.

The FMA is an independent Crown entity established in 2011 to facilitate the development of fair, efficient, and transparent financial markets in NZ. It is responsible for the conduct and disclosure regulation of financial markets’ participants.

According to FMA head of finance and business operations, Dave Brady, the decision to implement Good solutions is consistent with FMA’s IT strategy to provide employees with the right tools to operate effectively both in and out of the office.

“Good’s use in government agencies and departments both within NZ and around the world gave us the confidence that we were looking for in a secure mobility solution,” Brady said.

FMA currently employs 110 mobile-enabled personnel using a mix of Android (4.2 or later) and iOS (6 or later) smartphones and tablets.

As a result, Good Dynamics will be used to fully mobilise FMA’s workflow to enable employees to securely record information on a mobile device.

The FMA will also look into using Good’s data container to secure its Microsoft Dynamics CRM mobile application.

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

​As the channel changes and industry voices deepen, the need for clarity and insight heightens. Market misconceptions talk of an “under pressure” distribution space, with competitors in that fateful “race for relevance” across New Zealand. Amidst the cliched assumptions however, distribution is once again showing its strength, as a force to be listened to, rather than questioned. Traditionally, the role was born out of a need for vendors and resellers to find one another, acting as a bridge between the testing lab and the marketplace. Yet despite new technologies and business approaches shaking the channel to its very core, distributors remain tied to the epicentre - providing the voice of reason amidst a seismic industry shift. In looking across both sides of the vendor and partner fences, the middle concept of the three-tier chain remains centrally placed to understand the metrics of two differing worlds, as the continual pulse checkers of the local channel. This exclusive Reseller News Roundtable, in association with Dicker Data and rhipe, examined the pivotal role of distribution in understanding the health of the channel, educating from the epicentre as the market transforms at a rapid rate.
