  • o   Need to access and integrate multiple back-end systemso   for best mobile experience, it often takes combining information form two or more systems to address the needGetting and working with this information is usually the biggest part of the effort in providing mobile solutions
  • Need to support multiple mobile platforms3 types of iOS devices 300+ Android variationsFour BlackBerry OS’s across dozens of handsets and tabletsDozens of WP7 deviceseach has its own user experience, form factors and security levelsUsers expect the interaction to feel similar to other apps on the device
  • We’ve been talking about the easy challenges, there is actually a lot more “under the waterline” to be concerned about:Network access and exposure are big challengesSensitive company data on non-controlled devices is a risk and challengeDevelopment tools and familiaritySecurity and policy enforcement

  • As we’ve mentioned, a high-value mobile example is a workflow approval scenario, where a busy executive can glance at their mobile and quickly see items they need to review and take action on, such as approving a payment to a vendor.Or we can drill into a detail on a specific item and dispute it, entering the reasons why and submitting that to the workflow.Note how the processed items are removed from the list and the employee can focus on what they need to do next.
  • Keeping everyone informed is critical, and dashboards are a common way to achieve that, showing the Key Performance Indicators (KPI) is a means to quickly see the status of critical business information and make informed decisionsReviewing graphical information shows us at a glance what challenges or opportunities we might haveReviewing exception lists lets us react to important information in the field, even flagging certain items for follow-up, or if after reviewing details, deciding an item needs to be escalated right away by issuing a notification.All of these keep your staff informed, participating and moving the business forward, wherever they are.
  • The Rover platform provides native user experience for each platform, allowing users to interact with your company information just as they would with any other application on their smartphone.Rover abstracts away the complexities and gives the best possible display on all form factors, allowing your staff to effectively focus on their workAll of these user experiences were generated by solutions running on the gateway, authored by staff who has never done mobile development. This is the benefit that MEAP platforms bring to mobilizing your enterprise.
  • Increase the speed of your business to gain advantageJust like email did, mobile data interactions enhance you ability to executeEnterprise mobility solutions can range widely depending on needsConsider security, costs, and usability in your evaluationsSecurity is criticalSpeed and ease of development, as well as purchase cost affect total ROIEngage your employees with high usability of native interfaces to maximize ROIIt is easy to start with MEAP platforms and knowledgeable partners
