One-in-two mobile owners in the US owns a smartphone, and many more own tablets. As most of these same consumers adapt their personal lifestyle to be “mobile first,” they expect their employers to be there to meet them. With the growing number of personal mobile devices in the hands of users, as well as increasingly remote organizations , there’s a great opportunity for organizations to increase productivity of their employees by allowing the use of these personal devices. Taking this on seems daunting, as IT has less ability to enforce a single standard than ever before. Not taking action, however, and ignoring this trend risks exposing corporate data to public clouds with no visibility on the part of IT. Enforcing a single standard will do a lot to serve all users partially, but none particularly well. "Power to the People: Identify and Empower Your Workforce," the new report by Altimeter Group analyst Chris Silva explores how companies are deploying mobile strategies to meet the the specific needs of their employees and the organization at large.

  • I was pleased to see the attention given here to the field workforce as a top priority for mobilizing: site inspectors, field service technicians, delivery drivers and the like. Tablets and apps are the perfect replacement for clipboards and paper, and more companies are wanting to make that transition a reality every day.

    The field workforce does need collaboration, but that means more than just a place in the cloud to stash files. Field workers need custom apps for data collection with forms that include photos and signatures. And companies need that collected data to be stored in a structured way so they can slice it, dice it and use it.
