With the right mobility strategy, enterprises can actively embrace the “consumerisation” of enterprise applications to increase the adoption of flexible working and competitive advantage.
Given the current economic climate, enterprises are urgently looking to reduce costs, improve operating margins, expand into developing markets and increase productivity. A vital part of their success in achieving these goals will be in managing enterprise mobility. With the right mobility strategy, enterprises can actively embrace the "consumerisation" of enterprise applications to increase the adoption of flexible working and competitive advantage.
Enterprises have evolved with controls on their desktop and data centre environments, but smartphones are replacing desktops and laptops as the communication platform of choice. Improved bandwidth and usability on these devices have created a dynamic market for mobile enterprise applications from business software vendors, particularly ones that can improve business productivity. As more employees work remotely, the ability for businesses to manage and monitor mobile environments is becoming critical.
The four key areas for managing enterprise mobility are cost control, device management, service levels and security. To ensure the success of enterprise mobility implementations, businesses must have a way to monitor and quickly resolve smartphone and mobile related issues. To achieve this, enterprises must have an end-to-end view of the entire mobile service – from servers and network devices deep in the data centre, to carrier networks and devices outside the data centre. Enterprises that can proactively identify problems and rapidly resolve issues will ensure their company's mobile workforce remains productive. Many multinational companies are addressing these issues by outsourcing their requirements.
