Mobile Printing The Next Stage in Road-Warrior Productivity

Executive Summary

Smartphones and tablet computers are ubiquitous in business today. Virtually every executive and individual contributor uses one or more of these devices to access email and websites while away from their desk. However, printing is not something that can be done easily from most smartphones or tablets. Even when there is a tool to help people print from a mobile device, it is generally limited in what it offers, or it requires an external server or PC to complete the printing task.

The Samsung MobilePrint app gives business professionals the ability to print and scan directly to and from any Samsung printer on a local-area network with a secure WiFi access point using their Android, Windows Mobile or Apple iOS smartphones or tablets (without the need for an external server or PC). This allows busy professionals to review, sign and share printed documents while working away from their desks.


The two biggest trends in business IT today are consumerization and mobilization. You can see both in action in virtually every conference room around the world: busy professionals responding to email on their smartphones or using tablets to take notes and multitask. With 470 million smartphones (according to IDC) and 55 million tablets (Morgan Stanley) sold in 2011, virtually every business IT group has to deal with these devices at some level. Often these devices — especially tablets — are consumer devices being adapted for use in business settings. As such, many are not set up to run business applications, offer business capabilities or help business professionals truly maximize their productivity. 

SAMSUNG Introduces Dual-Scan Technology on New A4 Color MFP Line Up

RIDGEFIELD PARK, N.J., January 31, 2013 – Samsung Electronics America, Inc., a subsidiary of Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd, today announced a new line of A4 color multi-function printers. Ideal for small, medium and large-sized offices, the new CLX-8640ND and CLX-8650ND models are built with dual-scan technology, saving time and company resources. Samsung is one of the few in the A4 segment to feature dual-scan technology, designed to automatically scan both sides of a document at once for faster output.

“Our new A4 product line with dual-scan technology delivers an additional level of efficiency that our customers have come to expect from Samsung MFPs,” said Tod Pike, senior vice president of Samsung Enterprise Business Division. “With this launch, we are well positioned to deliver innovative technology to our dealers while helping customers spend less time completing simple tasks. We are excited to bring our new product line to market and will continue to evolve our products to further the A4 category.”


Managed Print Services: Tackling the Last Frontier in Substantially Cutting IT Speed


The current economic crisis has had a major impact on how enterprises allocate their IT budgets. Despite the fact that shrewd investments in services will provide immediate cost savings, enterprises are still reluctant to spend, requiring greater proof of realistic return on investment in the short- to mid-term and taking considerably longer to make final decisions before getting projects up and running.

Offerings that are increasingly attractive are focused on cost savings, strong business benefits, governance and risk reduction. Now that companies are scrutinising their overheads, many of today's major international organisations are starting to realise that more effective management of print procedures and document archives will save them both time and money, although they often have no concept of the magnitude of that saving.

An economic downturn will usually push expenditure to operational (opex) rather than capital expenditure (capex). The major reasons for this are:

  • Greater flexibility, less cost: Opex-based spend allows budgets to be cut or increased faster and with fewer penalties and costs. It also allows new services to be bought and deployed more quickly and more easily. A utility pricing model — where a single invoice is generated on a monthly or quarterly basis — ensures that companies pay for what they use.
  • Less risk: Moving towards opex decreases the risk of infrastructure overcapacity and consequently financial charges.
  • Budget constraints or reluctance to borrow to fund investments: Avoiding assets on the balance sheet lowers an organisation's need for raising equity or taking loans to finance the assets. Consequently opex-based engagements become more attractive. This is also likely to drive interest for asset-based third-party agreements such as outsourcing and managed services. 

Award-Winning SAMSUNG MobilePrint App Enhanced For Increased Ease-of-Use and Functionality

RIDGEFIELD PARK, N.J., November 15, 2012 – Samsung Electronics America Inc. today announced the availability of its enhanced “plug & play” MobilePrint App. A Buyer’s Lab 2012 Pick Award winner, Samsung’s MobilePrint App offers secure, fast, easy printing or scanning through a Wi-Fi access point for Android and Windows enhanced versions and iOS smart mobile devices.

“It is important for us to be able to provide our customers with a complete line of solutions that makes new technology adoption easier and more intuitive,” said Tod Pike, senior vice president of Samsung Electronics Enterprise Business Division. “Samsung’s MobilePrint App is a great example of this as we continue to establish our position as a leader in the mobile industry, improving productivity by seamlessly connecting all of our products for business and consumer needs.”


Datacenter SSDs: Solid Footing for Growth


This IDC white paper explores the opportunity for integrating solid state drives (SSDs) into the enterprise storage environment. Datacenter challenges are highlighted and compared with the commensurate benefits of SSDs. IDC’s forecast for SSD integration into datacenters is delineated. Finally, challenges that SSD OEMs must address before successfully engaging the datacenter are revealed.


IDC estimates that datacenter storage requirements are increasing between 50% and 60% per year, with no end in sight. IT managers have at their disposal a number of technologies and solutions to manage this ongoing growth in storage. Much of the focus in managing storage proliferation has been related to consolidating server and direct-attached storage into large pools of networked storage, or storage area networks. This strategy has been and continues to be an effective way to manage a company’s growing storage environment.

However, commensurate with the increasing storage requirements are the processing needs placed upon the stored data. The terabytes of storage not only need to be preserved and protected but also need to be served to applications running on servers that provide vital data and services to users. These varying performance needs have created an opportunity for storage system vendors to offer various storage products within a defined set of performance tiers. High-performance storage for data-hungry, transaction- ntense server demands at the top and lowerperformance, yet very high- apacity oriented storage at the foundation facilitate backup and data protection procedures, enabling the higher storage tiers to maintain their focus on performance.

He emphasized that, after serving many years at Canon, including as senior vice president of the Imaging Systems Group, his move to Samsung is indicative of his confidence in the brand, which led into his presentation “Why Samsung?”


MFP Security Overview


Multifunction Printers (MFPs) are complex network devices that require careful consideration regarding security. Samsung’s printing and networking products include a wide array of security related features. This document discusses those features and provides an overview of their benefits and their implementation.

Any device that is placed on a network must be evaluated with respect to security. How does the device protect itself from unauthorized access? Does the device expose the network to any form of vulnerability? What sort of information does the device process, and what are the security considerations related to that data? These and many other questions are appropriate to ask of any networked device, including networked printers.

Networked printers operate independently on the network and can be focal points for sensitive information. Securing them is sometimes comparable to securing other conventional networked devices such as computers: the need
for controlled network access and the need for secure remote management are largely the same for printers and workstations. In other areas, the security considerations around printers are substantially different: they generally don’t run conventional operating systems, they don’t have network file shares that need to be secured, they probably don’t need or support antivirus software, etc.
