Expanding Beyond Mobility Management: Enterprise mobile application and service revenues to reach $430 Billion in 2021
The market for enterprise mobility has a promising future. With growth in business-to-employee (B2E) apps and mobile device management, companies are looking to move more of their business processes to mobile. Not only that, but more people will be performing their work functions from a company owned mobile device. User demands are part of the driver here, and so IT teams within organizations are responding by implementing these mobile solutions.
What stage of enterprise mobility adoption are you in?
Many companies are using mobile to perform business processes, but there are many different stages of implementation that they may find themselves in. In some cases, companies have implemented mobile in the simplest form, by allowing employees to have access to data with their own devices with no real strategy in place. Others have taken the time to develop a true mobile strategy that factors in user experience and security. While mobile is important in many companies, there is a broad spectrum of adoption scenarios.
Rise in enterprise mobile apps hit by dev skill gap
Enterprise mobile apps are proving to be transformative to business processes. But designing a good mobile app for business isn’t as easy as taking common work functions from the desktop and shrinking them down to a phone screen. While companies try for a desirable user experience, they’re finding a gap in the availability of good mobile design and implementation engineers. In order to have a good enterprise mobile initiative, companies must invest in the right resources.
4 Ways to measure the success of your mobile initiative
While mobile has many apparent benefits to the workforce, such as ease of access to data and more efficient communication channels, it’s important to have concrete data that represents just how much it actually helps employees. First defining a desired outcome from implementing mobile, and then evaluating your KPIs (key performance indicators) are necessary steps to understand your return on investment.
