Are you in the game?
Like it or not, your workforce is going mobile and managing this trend has not been easy. Confidential data can be accessed on mobile devices, which is not inside the company firewall. Mission critical applications can be downloaded with a click of a button to raise security concerns. Going mobile is not a matter of choice anymore when the majority of workforce is demanding easy access to information, anytime, and anywhere on their iPhones and Androids. IDC estimates that 70% of corporate data now resides on mobile devices and Forrester predicts that more than 400 million workers will go mobile by 2012; this represents 75% of the global workforce! So, you don’t want to be left behind with a negative impact to your security policies and to your overall business strategy.
What does it mean to go mobile?
To keep pace with this fast moving market, you need to understand what your overall strategic, mobility goals are. Is it improving the productivity of employees by enabling remote and easy access to information, is it making your sales organization more efficient by enabling them to access CRM solutions remotely? Based on this you can align your technologies to support objectives by creating a detailed roadmap on how you can achieve these objectives, this also means you have to plan your risks and budgets accordingly. And finally, execute, either with an in-house or an outsourced team or a combination of both.
