Weekly Enterprise Mobility Wrap-up: March 20-24
Enterprise mobility is on the rise in many industries where workers aren’t bound to a desk. Verticals such as retail, hospitals, and manufacturing are all able to be more productive when CIOs are able to support a mature mobility solution. What’s more, reports show that targeting employees based on their role is much better than a one-size-fits-all approach for enterprise mobile apps.
The future of enterprise mobility
Businesses are under increased pressure to provide mobile solutions to their employees. For some industries, this can mean adopting more rugged devices that can be used in the field. For others, this can mean offering more mobile workstations for employees to use. Regardless of the approach, the goal is always to enable the workforce to be more productive and see profitability rise — all of which can happen when workers are able to stay connected.
Productivity and profit: Is your mobility strategy mature enough?
For CIOs hoping to provide a solid mobile strategy across an organization, they must consider a variety of factors. Maintaining data security, while also protecting employees, is often the biggest priority. While many organizations have yet to implement a truly mature mobile solution, CIOs more often than not recognize the value in mobile and are at least some of the way there.
How role-based app development drives enterprise transformation
Companies will readily design mobile apps for customers that are specific to a certain need. It’s not expected that a consumer would have to use several apps to accomplish one task. Why is it, then, that companies have not considered this approach for their employees? Only recently have businesses begun to recognize that there usually isn’t a one-size-fits all mobile app for all of their employees. Instead, it is better and more effective to design apps based on an employee’s role in the company.
The retail industry and the challenges of enterprise mobility management
The retail industry was one of the first to embrace BYOD (Bring Your Own Device). Many other organizations also want their employees to be able to work from tablets and other corporate-owned devices; however, IT must rise to the challenge of ensuring ease of intranet access from a variety of devices. Enterprise mobile management (EMM) solutions are often seen as the answer to the myriad problems that can arise from supporting mobile connectivity.
