Split your work & personal lives with Divide for the iPhone

Mobile business software startup Enterproid has brought its ingenious Android-based Divide app for separating your business and personal life to the iPhone, a move that will increase its exposure with the enterprise. Enterproid’s Divide software has become a popular solution for businesses embracing the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) revolution. The company’s software already allows Android phone owners to have completely separate business and personal profiles on their devices, which means you can keep your incessant Angry Birds action separate from your Box and corporate email accounts. Now iPhone owners will also be able to take part. “We’ve always said this was coming, but we wanted to make sure what we were building was right,” Enterproid CEO Andrew Toy told VentureBeat. “In our Android development, we found what we wanted, and it was easier to integrate new features. Now we’ve brought that to iOS.” On the iPhone, the device does not separate profiles as cleanly as on Android. Instead, all of your business apps and data are delegated to a single “container” (it looks like an app) on your home screen. Inside the app, you can access whatever apps your business assigns you — most likely mail, contacts, calendar, and anything else your company depends on (think Salesforce, LinkedIn, Box, etc.). “When we show this to employees, they respond extremely well,” Toy said. “But this is more about giving employers control they want. The employers know it’s theirs and they like that.” Toy says the app will “soon” work for the iPad as well, a device that has had a surprising impact on the enterprise. Although the company’s focus is on Android and iOS, he says that after the iPad, Enterproid might pursue Windows Phone 8, Windows 8, and BlackBerry, other platforms that might be worth an investment. New York-based Enterproid launched at the Demo Spring 2011 and has raised $13 million in funding from investors including Comcast Ventures, Google Ventures, Qualcomm Ventures, Genacast Ventures, and NYC Seed. The 65-employee company also has offices in Hong Kong and London. Photo credit: Enterproid Filed under: enterprise, mobile

How will oil prices shape the Covid-19 recovery in emerging markets?

How will oil prices shape the Covid-19 recovery in emerging markets?
– After falling significantly in 2020, oil prices have returned to pre-pandemic levels
– The rise has been driven by OPEC+ production cuts and an improving economic climate
– Higher prices are likely to support a rebound in oil-producing emerging markets
– Further virus outbreaks or increased production would pose challenges to price stability

A combination of continued production cuts and an increase in economic activity has prompted oil prices to return to pre-pandemic levels – a factor that will be crucial to the recovery of major oil-producing countries in the Middle East and Africa.

Brent crude prices rose above $60 a barrel in early February, the first time they had exceeded pre-Covid-19 values. They have since continued to rise, going above $66 a barrel on February 24.

The ongoing increase in oil prices, which have soared by 75% since November and around 26% since the beginning of the year, marks a dramatic change from last year.

Following the closure of many national borders and the implementation of travel-related restrictions to stop the spread of the virus, demand for oil slumped globally.

In the wake of the Saudi-Russia price war in early 2020, Brent crude prices fell from around $60 a barrel in February that year to two-decade lows of $20 a barrel in late April, as supply increased and demand plummeted. The value of WTI crude – the main benchmark for oil in the US – fell to record lows of around $40 a barrel last year on the back of a lack of storage space.

While global demand for oil remains low, one factor credited with reversing the trend is the decision to make significant cuts to oil production, which subsequently tightened global supplies.
