Mobility Is Becoming a Must for Enterprise

  1. 1. BUILDING THE MOBILE ENTERPRISE Create and execute a mobile strategy that gives your workforce the tools to seize opportunities while keeping vital data secure.
  2. 2. ENTER MOBILITY Take a look at your current network: • Do you know about every mobile device that is capable of accessing some part of your network? • Do you know all the applications on each device? • Will you need additional servers for application deployment and security management? As the benefits associated with mobility continue to expand the business’ potential, the challenges associated with managing this movement are also on the rise. And it’s up to IT to figure it all out. 2
  3. 3. PAST MISTAKES In the past, mobile integration looked something like the figure below. New mobile devices had apps designed for them, and as new devices came into the market, the process repeated itself. This method led to an application deployment and support nightmare, as multiple versions of the same app were piled on top of one another for each device. 3
  4. 4. MOBILE POPULATION The mobile enterprise may already exist within your organization, whether it’s regulated or not. Your employees are most likely accessing corporate data through personal devices on a daily basis. This rapid trend toward corporate network mobility is changing the workplace, and it’s up to IT to develop a strategy that keeps employees happy and enhances business operations. By 2015, the global mobile workforce will reach 1.3 billion people.1 Mobility is growing five times faster than previous IT shifts, such as client server or Internet adoption.2 International Data Corporation, “The Rise of Mobility” SAP, ”Enterprise Mobility for Dummies” 1 2 4
  5. 5. FINDING A FAMILIAR TOOL You may not have to look much farther than your own device at home for a roadmap to effective mobilization, as the consumer market has laid the groundwork. Your employees are comfortable with their own personal devices and now expect a similar userfriendly experience in the workplace. One way of accomplishing this expectation is by accepting a wide range of mobile devices. From there, you can segment your workforce by device type and mobile needs, letting you better cater the mobile experience to the individual user. Seems like a lot of different users to keep track of, right? Though it sounds intimidating, mobility management systems are available that help automate much of the manual labor associated with all of this new device management. 5
  6. 6. A MOBILE WIN-WIN Mobility improves productivity and efficiency by giving your employees the tools to function no matter where they are or what device they are using. With quicker access to insights, they get to enjoy the productivity and efficiency that come with being road warriors, while your customers get to experience more personalized service and offerings. 80% of employees work under security and management policies that are too restrictive, and 20% of workers don’t have access to the mobile power and features they need.3 SAP, ”Enterprise Mobility for Dummies” 3 6
  7. 7. MOBILE SECURITY How can you keep all of these new devices manageable and secure? The quick answer is that there’s no surefire way to be completely secure: Cell phones left in taxis, laptops left in hotel lobbies, and theft are just some of the uncontrollable security risks that you must handle. But solutions are available that can remotely lock, encrypt, and even self-destruct sensitive data if a security breach or any theft has occurred. At least 36% of mobile phone users have either lost their phone or had it stolen.4 54% of companies have experienced at least one security breach in recent years.5 SAP, ”Enterprise Mobility for Dummies” Ibid 4 5 7
  8. 8. PLATFORM APPLICATION MANAGEMENT Solutions are available that enable your mobile applications to keep up with a constantly changing applications environment, all from a single platform. By investing in a single solution, such as a Mobile Enterprise Application Platform (MEAP), you are able to connect back-end applications and data to any mobile device and develop a single management console to keep it moving and adapting. 8
  9. 9. The Brave New Mobility World Mobility has become an integral part of dayto-day operations within your enterprise. The right solutions can enable IT to drive business transformation through mobilization. Learn more about how to create a plan to manage your mobile environment. 9
