Mobility projects have increased in scope and complexity, and they require a more grass-roots approach than previous technology initiatives.
Enterprise mobility solutions have evolved rapidly over the past several years. The number and type of mobile devices have exploded, there are more operating system platforms available, lines are blurring between consumer and rugged devices, and many companies have even adopted BYOD programs for employee-owned hardware. There are new security concerns and solutions, along with cloud-based applications and new mobile device management options.
Many enterprise mobility strategies, however, were originally developed around older technology paradigms. In some cases, companies may never have fully developed a mobility strategy at all. A guiding plan for a company’s approach to mobile deployments is important to ensure the systems are secure, reliable, and manageable. Given the complexity of the current mobility market, Field Technologies surveyed a number of leading solution vendors to find best practices for developing a modern enterprise mobility strategy.
