Mobility Trends That Will Change Business

I came across this article thanks to the Enterprise Mobility Forums Twitter feed, and wanted to share it with you all. The article comes from InformationWeek, and discusses a few interesting topics that are very applicable to our space. There are a couple of things it highlights that I’d like to point out, and urge you to read the rest and tell us what jumps out at you. Onto the article…

First, that with the emergence of enterprise-level smartphone use, it’s becoming increasingly important for an enterprises strategy to incorporate a vender agnostic approach.

“An important outcome of this trend is that a majority of the workforce, not just the top executives, will have mobile access and will expect access to more than email. This will require businesses to change their application, development, and services strategies…”

The other item that I found particularly well put, was the summary/idea of enterprise mobility management. The author has done a great job in defining it as the next generation of mobile device management; one that incorporates new mobility and traditional aspects of MDM such as security and application management.

“[Enterprise Mobility Management] is a combination of mobile device management, security management, applications management, and services and expense management.”
