In their quest to mobilize work to improve efficiency and productivity, indus-
try-leading organizations are striving to create apps that matter. Apps that
make a profound impact on business results can’t be purchased from an
app store. That’s because your business is unique and so are many of your
key business processes.
In an effort to measure enterprise trends, for the third year in a row,
Apperian conducted its Enterprise Mobility Survey. The survey received
responses from a total of 100 professionals across industries regarding
the state of their enterprise mobility programs. More than a third (35%) of
respondents hold CxO positions, 14% are VPs, 29% are directors, and 20%
are managers. More than half (61%) come from large companies with
revenues in excess of $1.5 billion.
In this report, CITO Research analyzes the survey results and sug-
gests a program for taking advantage of the lessons that emerge
from the data. This report examines key mobile trends, describes
drivers of success, and concludes with recommendations for expand-
ing enterprise mobility programs.
INTRODUCTION
2
KEY MOBILE TRENDS
Analyzing survey results from the past three years along with related research from
Apperian (App Trends, 2015), we’ve seen continued demand for custom mobile apps
that enable employees to be more productive. Custom apps connect employees to
enterprise systems so they can be productive from anywhere.
An increasing number of companies push a large set of apps to employees, with
greater emphasis on productivity apps rather than traditional sales and field ser-
vices apps. Advancing enterprise mobility management technologies are enabling
companies to support users outside their organizations, such as contractors,
with apps that matter.

Improve Business Processes and Productivity
Improved business processes and improved productivity were most fre-
quently mentioned as the primary benefit of enterprise mobility, cited by
53% of respondents.
Custom apps can transform a business process and greatly accelerate busi-
ness. Custom apps save people time, improve productivity, make employees’
work easier, and in some instances create revenue-producing opportunities
and a competitive advantage. According to CDW, custom apps save 7.5 hours
per employee per week.

Survey respondents were asked about the types of custom apps that are
providing the greatest business impact.
Productivity apps ranked highest, followed by field service and sales (tra-
ditionally strong areas for mobile apps). For the second year in a row,
productivity apps are providing the biggest impact on organizations.
Custom apps to improve productivity
streamline areas such as project man-
agement, collaboration, and business
intelligence (BI) reporting (App Trends,
2015).
The impact of productivity
apps highlights broader
reach for mobility, which is
expanding beyond traditional
targets for mobile such as
sales and field service.

How are companies ensuring that custom apps are widely adopted? They do
so first and foremost by creating apps that are relevant to specific day-to-day
responsibilities and tasks. Companies are supporting business processes
that are unique to their organizations by creating custom apps that inter-
act with enterprise systems. Access to these systems is critical to delivering
compelling apps that will be widely adopted and transformative.
When asked about strategies to drive
adoption, it’s not surprising that mobiliz-
ing access to enterprise systems was cited
most frequently, by 58% of respondents.
Offering key apps to employees and
contracted workers was cited by 41% of re-
spondents, looking to reach a broader user
population. A consistent finding through-
out this year’s survey is that organizations
are finding ways to equip a wider group
of traditionally unsupported workers with
mobile apps. This demonstrates that the
value of mobilizing these workers is high.

Mobilize Access to Enterprise Systems to Drive App Adoption
An enterprise app store is a key strategy for driving app adoption, serving as
a central location to discover, download, get updates for, and provide feed-
back about custom apps. And more organizations are using this strategy: in
2016, 35% are using enterprise app stores, up from 23% in 2015.
Offering a mobile help desk is cited by 25% of respondents this year, com-
pared with only 6% in 2015.
Overall, the survey showed that companies
are putting more tactics in place to drive the
adoption of their mobile apps in an effort
to ensure ROI. Lessons are being learned
as companies become savvier about what
it takes to make mobile app deployment
successful, shifting their focus from simply
locking down mobile devices to laying the
foundation for mobile strategies that can
scale by getting apps used, adopted, and
iterated to improve ROI, in the most secure
way possible. This is a trend we expect to
continue through 2016.

Equip the Extended Enterprise
More than half (51%) of all
organizations surveyed
provide apps to at least one
other party in the extended
enterprise—hourly workers,
contracted employees,
dealer networks or business
partners.
Of all organizations surveyed, more than
half (51%) provide apps to at least one other
party in the extended enterprise. Notably,
9% of all organizations target the extended
enterprise (non-employees) exclusively as
a way to drive value from mobility.
A key trend is the broadening of the populations of users that are supported
by business apps. Often companies start their mobile initiatives with apps
for employees and then move into supporting their contracted workers, dis-
tributors, third parties, and business partners with mobile apps. We refer to
this as supporting the extended enterprise. This year’s survey introduced a
new question to enable us to track this trend.

Reach Large Segments of Users
Next we asked how many users are being reached with custom apps in a
typical deployment. We found that a quarter (26%) of app deployments
overall reach more than 5,000 users, including employees, contractors, and
business partners. If we focus on large organizations with more than 10,000
employees, nearly half of app deployments (45%) reach more than 5,000
users. Companies deploying custom apps to such large bodies of workers is
important, and it suggests they recognize that mobile apps can be transfor-
mational to a wide segment of their user base.

Build an App Portfolio
Additional research based on data from
real-world deployments found a median of
13.8 apps per organization.
When asked about whether they plan to
expand their app portfolios in the next 12
months, 87% of all organizations and 97%
of large organizations said yes. The ma-
jority plans to deliver between 1 and 10
additional custom apps, and more than a
quarter of large organizations (28%) plan to
deliver more than 10 custom apps in that
timeframe.
87% of all organizations plan
to expand their app portfolios
over the next 12 months.
Organizations are expanding the size of their custom app portfolios. Here
we see an important difference by organizational size. Nearly a quarter (23%)
of large organizations currently offer more than 20 apps to employees, con-
tract workers, and business partners. These organizations have developed a
strong internal process to deploy a large set of apps at scale. Looking across
all survey respondents, the number of apps offered is smaller, with the ma-
jority reporting deployments of 10 or fewer apps.

Challenges: Complexity and Lack of Reach
Securely delivering custom apps to all intended users is critical for enterpris-
es to realize the highest return on their mobile investment.
Despite the importance of mobility to the enterprise, the growing appetite for
expanding mobility programs still outpaces budgets. Nearly half of respon-
dents (45%) said lack of budget for mobility is a challenge to meeting their
mobility goals. And 25% say that they have inadequate metrics to determine
the ROI of their programs. If you can prove the ROI of your mobility efforts
with usage analytics, you can then support budget requests. Demonstrating
ROI is key to making a business case and getting more budget.
Though there is clearly a desire to reach
the extended enterprise with apps, orga-
nizations are struggling with challenges
related to the complexity of the mobile
landscape, including multiple mobile oper-
ating systems and management methods.
Complexity was the top challenge, cited
by 48% of respondents. More than a third
(31%) cite a related challenge: reaching
BYOD, contracted, or unmanaged devices.

What About Security?
Since providing access to enterprise systems is a key feature and value propo-
sition of custom apps, it is not surprising to find that protecting those systems
from mobile threats is the highest priority overall, a concern cited by 64% of
respondents. Threats from jail broken or otherwise compromised mobile de-
vices ranked second, while data corruption and theft are other key concerns.
In past years, security was mentioned as a
challenge twice as often as any other issue.
This led us to separate security into its own
category so that respondents could identi-
fy security concerns in more detail.
Which mobile security issues are you concerned about? Multiple responses allowed
Protecting internal network and infrastructure from mobile-based threats
Compliance with corporate or agency standards
Compromised mobile devices
Data corruption or theft
Deploying secure apps onto managed and personal devices
Security practices within app development team

Visibility: Enhance Security, Drive Growth, and Demonstrate ROI
While this area is still in need of improvement, there were some gains in
visibility over last year’s survey, particularly in the area of platform usage
(54% now have visibility into which operating system apps are running on,
compared with 34% in 2015).
Increased visibility into key app metrics
serves at least three key purposes:
ii Ensuring successful adoption and use.
Analytics enable you to drive growth,
ensuring that app adoption and use are
going well. (An app that is frequently
downloaded but subsequently deleted
or simply not used is not a healthy app.)
ii Making a business case to support bud-
get requests. By showing the ROI for
your mobility program, you can get bud-
get to expand the program.
ii Improving security as visibility into who
is using custom apps, how and where
they are using them, and how the app
behaves provides the enterprise with
more control and checks and balances.
Overall, slightly more than half of respon-
dents are able to gain insight into their
deployments using analytics. Despite the
importance of analytics, approximately
half of survey respondents do not have
visibility into what their users are doing on
mobile devices.

Satisfaction with Adoption
Nearly half (47%) of all respondents are satisfied or
very satisfied with the adoption of custom apps at
their organizations.
In 2014, 35% of organizations were satisfied or very satisfied with adoption.
As mobility programs mature over time, we’ve seen satisfaction rates in-
crease to 47% in 2016.
Organizations are putting effort into differ-
entiating themselves through mobility with
the deployment of custom apps, and that
effort is paying off. The proportion of those
satisfied with adoption—a proxy for a
sound mobility program that we have used
for the past three years— has increased
year over year.

Satisfaction with Adoption
This data shows that providing access to
apps that help, improve or transform how
employees get work done is a key ingredi-
ent to a best-in-class mobility program.
What are those who are most satisfied with adoption doing differently from
others? Across the board we find that organizations that are more satisfied
are the ones making a greater effort to drive adoption. More of those satis-
fied have apps that access key enterprise systems (60% compared with 44%
of those unsatisfied). The biggest differentiation comes in the area of offering
apps to employees and contracted workers, with 53% of those satisfied or
very satisfied citing this strategy versus 22% of those who are neutral about
satisfaction and 31% of those who are unsatisfied or very unsatisfied with
custom app adoption.

195 Actionable Tips for Enterprise Mobility Programs
ii Get more mobile metrics. For the foreseeable
future, most organizations will have more ideas for
apps than budget to execute on those ideas. This
is just one of many reasons to gather as many met-
rics as you can: the number of downloads, ongoing
use of the app, the number of app versions, the plat-
forms on which the app is being used, who is using
the app, and more. Visibility is key to decision-mak-
ing and plays an important role in ensuring security
and compliance of mobile apps.
ii Deploy fine-grained security. Delivering apps
that drive access to critical enterprise systems re-
quires higher levels of mobile app security. Increase
your overall security posture by applying fine-
grained security policies at the application level ver-
sus attempting to address security at the device or
infrastructure level.
ii Take action. The time is now for enterprise apps.
Your competitors are launching apps, and so should
you. Competitive advantage is hard to achieve, but
the risk of falling behind is greater.
ii Equip the extended enterprise. One insurance compa-
ny offers an app that allows independent agents to quickly
get quotes and necessary approvals for insurance policies.
The app makes sales easier and faster, allowing the inde-
pendent agents to sell the company’s insurance products
more frequently than its competitors’ products. Offering key
apps to employees remains important, but look around to
see who else in your ecosystem could benefit from a custom
app. Deliver mobile apps to 100% of users, including those
in the extended enterprise, to gain a competitive advantage
and drive the most value from mobility programs.
ii Find apps that matter. Expand the size of the pipeline for
custom app development. To do this, you’ll need to curate
app ideas and get feedback on existing apps. Offer multiple
vectors for people to provide ideas for apps. A suggestion
box app helps those who are already inclined toward mobili-
ty to offer their ideas for new apps. Reviews in an enterprise
app store provide a familiar arena for feedback. For those
newer to mobility, use the mobile help desk as a way to gath-
er information from users, not just support them. Mobile
help desk staff can take suggestions for new apps and pro-
vide app owners with valuable feedback about what is and
isn’t working for users.

  • 3. 1 In their quest to mobilize work to improve efficiency and productivity, indus- try-leading organizations are striving to create apps that matter. Apps that make a profound impact on business results can’t be purchased from an app store. That’s because your business is unique and so are many of your key business processes. In an effort to measure enterprise trends, for the third year in a row, Apperian conducted its Enterprise Mobility Survey. The survey received responses from a total of 100 professionals across industries regarding the state of their enterprise mobility programs. More than a third (35%) of respondents hold CxO positions, 14% are VPs, 29% are directors, and 20% are managers. More than half (61%) come from large companies with revenues in excess of $1.5 billion. In this report, CITO Research analyzes the survey results and sug- gests a program for taking advantage of the lessons that emerge from the data. This report examines key mobile trends, describes drivers of success, and concludes with recommendations for expand- ing enterprise mobility programs. INTRODUCTION
  • 4. 2 KEY MOBILE TRENDS Analyzing survey results from the past three years along with related research from Apperian (App Trends, 2015), we’ve seen continued demand for custom mobile apps that enable employees to be more productive. Custom apps connect employees to enterprise systems so they can be productive from anywhere. An increasing number of companies push a large set of apps to employees, with greater emphasis on productivity apps rather than traditional sales and field ser- vices apps. Advancing enterprise mobility management technologies are enabling companies to support users outside their organizations, such as contractors, with apps that matter.
  • 5. KEYMOBILETRENDS 3 CONFIDENTIAL - DRAFT Improve Business Processes and Productivity Improved business processes and improved productivity were most fre- quently mentioned as the primary benefit of enterprise mobility, cited by 53% of respondents. Custom apps can transform a business process and greatly accelerate busi- ness. Custom apps save people time, improve productivity, make employees’ work easier, and in some instances create revenue-producing opportunities and a competitive advantage. According to CDW, custom apps save 7.5 hours per employee per week. What is the one primary benefit you are seeking with your enterprise mobility program? 14% 20% 23% 30% Improved business processes Improved productivity Competitive advantage Increased employee satisfaction Primary benefits of mobility include improved business processes and improved productivity, cited by 53% of respondents.
  • 6. KEYMOBILETRENDS 4 CONFIDENTIAL - DRAFT Deploy Apps for Business Impact Which of the following types of custom apps have the most positive business impact (productivity, ROI, etc.)? 56% 50% 44% 34% 29% Productivity apps (note taking apps office docs) Field service apps (maintenance parts inventory) Selling tools (sales collateral order processing) Travel (reservations expense reporting HR Apps (time tracking, room booking benefits) Survey respondents were asked about the types of custom apps that are providing the greatest business impact. Productivity apps ranked highest, followed by field service and sales (tra- ditionally strong areas for mobile apps). For the second year in a row, productivity apps are providing the biggest impact on organizations. Custom apps to improve productivity streamline areas such as project man- agement, collaboration, and business intelligence (BI) reporting (App Trends, 2015). The impact of productivity apps highlights broader reach for mobility, which is expanding beyond traditional targets for mobile such as sales and field service.
  • 7. KEYMOBILETRENDS 5 CONFIDENTIAL - DRAFT How are companies ensuring that custom apps are widely adopted? They do so first and foremost by creating apps that are relevant to specific day-to-day responsibilities and tasks. Companies are supporting business processes that are unique to their organizations by creating custom apps that inter- act with enterprise systems. Access to these systems is critical to delivering compelling apps that will be widely adopted and transformative. When asked about strategies to drive adoption, it’s not surprising that mobiliz- ing access to enterprise systems was cited most frequently, by 58% of respondents. Offering key apps to employees and contracted workers was cited by 41% of re- spondents, looking to reach a broader user population. A consistent finding through- out this year’s survey is that organizations are finding ways to equip a wider group of traditionally unsupported workers with mobile apps. This demonstrates that the value of mobilizing these workers is high. Mobilize Access to Enterprise Systems to Drive App Adoption What strategies are you using to drive app adoption? 58% 41% 35% 35% 25% Multiple responses allowed Enable mobile access to critical enterprise systems Offer key apps to employees and contracted workers Enterprise app store to help users find apps Internal promotion of apps Help desk for mobile users
  • 8. KEYMOBILETRENDS 6 CONFIDENTIAL - DRAFT Mobilize Access to Enterprise Systems to Drive App Adoption An enterprise app store is a key strategy for driving app adoption, serving as a central location to discover, download, get updates for, and provide feed- back about custom apps. And more organizations are using this strategy: in 2016, 35% are using enterprise app stores, up from 23% in 2015. Offering a mobile help desk is cited by 25% of respondents this year, com- pared with only 6% in 2015. Overall, the survey showed that companies are putting more tactics in place to drive the adoption of their mobile apps in an effort to ensure ROI. Lessons are being learned as companies become savvier about what it takes to make mobile app deployment successful, shifting their focus from simply locking down mobile devices to laying the foundation for mobile strategies that can scale by getting apps used, adopted, and iterated to improve ROI, in the most secure way possible. This is a trend we expect to continue through 2016. Companies are supporting business processes that are unique to their organizations by creating custom apps that interact with enterprise systems What strategies are you using to drive app adoption? 2015 2016Multiple responses allowed 47% 58% 23% 35% 32% 35% 6% 25% Enable mobile access to critical enterprise systems Enterprise app store to help users find apps Internal promotion of apps Help desk for mobile users
  • 9. More than one-third report having an enterprise app store, up from 23% in 2015 The app store A pathway to app adoption
  • 10. KEYMOBILETRENDS 8 CONFIDENTIAL - DRAFT Equip the Extended Enterprise More than half (51%) of all organizations surveyed provide apps to at least one other party in the extended enterprise—hourly workers, contracted employees, dealer networks or business partners. Of all organizations surveyed, more than half (51%) provide apps to at least one other party in the extended enterprise. Notably, 9% of all organizations target the extended enterprise (non-employees) exclusively as a way to drive value from mobility. A key trend is the broadening of the populations of users that are supported by business apps. Often companies start their mobile initiatives with apps for employees and then move into supporting their contracted workers, dis- tributors, third parties, and business partners with mobile apps. We refer to this as supporting the extended enterprise. This year’s survey introduced a new question to enable us to track this trend. What types of users are you equipping with mobile apps? 91% 39% 30% 28% Multiple responses allowed Corporate employees Hourly workers Contracted workers Business partners (deals-vendors- distributors-franchises)
  • 11. 51% of organizations surveyed provide apps to at least one other party in the extended enterprise Apps for everybody inside and outside the company
  • 12. KEYMOBILETRENDS 10 CONFIDENTIAL - DRAFT Reach Large Segments of Users Next we asked how many users are being reached with custom apps in a typical deployment. We found that a quarter (26%) of app deployments overall reach more than 5,000 users, including employees, contractors, and business partners. If we focus on large organizations with more than 10,000 employees, nearly half of app deployments (45%) reach more than 5,000 users. Companies deploying custom apps to such large bodies of workers is important, and it suggests they recognize that mobile apps can be transfor- mational to a wide segment of their user base. All organizations Organizations with 10K employees How many users (employees, contracted workers, and business partners) have you equipped with custom apps? 34% 25% 19% 14% 21% 16% 26% 45% 500 or fewer 501-2,000 2,000-5,000 5,000 Companies deploying custom apps to such large bodies of workers is important, and it suggests they recognize that mobile apps can be transformational to a wide segment of their user base.
  • 13. KEYMOBILETRENDS 11 CONFIDENTIAL - DRAFT Build an App Portfolio Additional research based on data from real-world deployments found a median of 13.8 apps per organization. When asked about whether they plan to expand their app portfolios in the next 12 months, 87% of all organizations and 97% of large organizations said yes. The ma- jority plans to deliver between 1 and 10 additional custom apps, and more than a quarter of large organizations (28%) plan to deliver more than 10 custom apps in that timeframe. 87% of all organizations plan to expand their app portfolios over the next 12 months. Organizations are expanding the size of their custom app portfolios. Here we see an important difference by organizational size. Nearly a quarter (23%) of large organizations currently offer more than 20 apps to employees, con- tract workers, and business partners. These organizations have developed a strong internal process to deploy a large set of apps at scale. Looking across all survey respondents, the number of apps offered is smaller, with the ma- jority reporting deployments of 10 or fewer apps. All organizations Organizations with 10K employees How many custom apps does your organization currently offer for employees, contracted workers, and business partners? 58% 0-1 2-5 5-10 10-20 20 23% 18% 22% 20% 13% 23% 7% 7% 47% 35% 32%
  • 14. KEYMOBILETRENDS 12 CONFIDENTIAL - DRAFT Challenges: Complexity and Lack of Reach Securely delivering custom apps to all intended users is critical for enterpris- es to realize the highest return on their mobile investment. Despite the importance of mobility to the enterprise, the growing appetite for expanding mobility programs still outpaces budgets. Nearly half of respon- dents (45%) said lack of budget for mobility is a challenge to meeting their mobility goals. And 25% say that they have inadequate metrics to determine the ROI of their programs. If you can prove the ROI of your mobility efforts with usage analytics, you can then support budget requests. Demonstrating ROI is key to making a business case and getting more budget. Though there is clearly a desire to reach the extended enterprise with apps, orga- nizations are struggling with challenges related to the complexity of the mobile landscape, including multiple mobile oper- ating systems and management methods. Complexity was the top challenge, cited by 48% of respondents. More than a third (31%) cite a related challenge: reaching BYOD, contracted, or unmanaged devices. What challenges are you facing in achieving your mobility goals? Complexity of mobile landscape (multiple mobile operating systems, management models) Inadequate metrics to determine ROI (not enough data to analyze usage, determine value) Lack of budget Reaching BYOD, contracted, or unmanaged devices Lack of development talent Lack of management tools Poor quality of apps Lack of app adoption Identifying the most important apps to create and deliver 48% 45% 31% 25% 25% 23% 22% 14% 13% Multiple responses allowed
  • 15. 48% of organizations cite complexity of the mobile landscape as a top challenge Mobile landscape complexity has companies tied up
  • 16. KEYMOBILETRENDS 14 CONFIDENTIAL - DRAFT What About Security? Since providing access to enterprise systems is a key feature and value propo- sition of custom apps, it is not surprising to find that protecting those systems from mobile threats is the highest priority overall, a concern cited by 64% of respondents. Threats from jail broken or otherwise compromised mobile de- vices ranked second, while data corruption and theft are other key concerns. In past years, security was mentioned as a challenge twice as often as any other issue. This led us to separate security into its own category so that respondents could identi- fy security concerns in more detail. Which mobile security issues are you concerned about? Multiple responses allowed Protecting internal network and infrastructure from mobile-based threats Compliance with corporate or agency standards Compromised mobile devices Data corruption or theft Deploying secure apps onto managed and personal devices Security practices within app development team Denial or interruption of services Malicious and compromised apps 64% 60% 57% 48% 44% 38% 34% 27%
  • 17. KEYMOBILETRENDS 15 CONFIDENTIAL - DRAFT Visibility: Enhance Security, Drive Growth, and Demonstrate ROI While this area is still in need of improvement, there were some gains in visibility over last year’s survey, particularly in the area of platform usage (54% now have visibility into which operating system apps are running on, compared with 34% in 2015). Increased visibility into key app metrics serves at least three key purposes: ii Ensuring successful adoption and use. Analytics enable you to drive growth, ensuring that app adoption and use are going well. (An app that is frequently downloaded but subsequently deleted or simply not used is not a healthy app.) ii Making a business case to support bud- get requests. By showing the ROI for your mobility program, you can get bud- get to expand the program. ii Improving security as visibility into who is using custom apps, how and where they are using them, and how the app behaves provides the enterprise with more control and checks and balances. Overall, slightly more than half of respon- dents are able to gain insight into their deployments using analytics. Despite the importance of analytics, approximately half of survey respondents do not have visibility into what their users are doing on mobile devices. 2015 2016 Visibility into app metrics is improving 51% 55% Which apps are being used Platform usage (iOS, Android, Windows) How frequently apps are used Which users are using apps 47% 34% 54% 42% 58% 48% 52%
  • 18. KEYMOBILETRENDS 16 CONFIDENTIAL - DRAFT Satisfaction with Adoption Nearly half (47%) of all respondents are satisfied or very satisfied with the adoption of custom apps at their organizations. In 2014, 35% of organizations were satisfied or very satisfied with adoption. As mobility programs mature over time, we’ve seen satisfaction rates in- crease to 47% in 2016. Organizations are putting effort into differ- entiating themselves through mobility with the deployment of custom apps, and that effort is paying off. The proportion of those satisfied with adoption—a proxy for a sound mobility program that we have used for the past three years— has increased year over year. How satisfied are you with adoption of custom apps in your organization? 9% Very satisfied 38%36% 15% Satisfied Dissatisfied Neither satisfied nor dissatisfied Very dissatisfied1% Satisfied or very satisfied Neither satisfied nor dissatisfied Dissatisfed or very unsatisfied Satisfaction with adoption, 2014-2016 2014 2015 2016 35% 34% 28% 31% 39% 27% 47% 36% 16%

KEYMOBILETRENDS 17 CONFIDENTIAL - DRAFT Satisfaction with Adoption This data shows that providing access to apps that help, improve or transform how employees get work done is a key ingredi- ent to a best-in-class mobility program. What are those who are most satisfied with adoption doing differently from others? Across the board we find that organizations that are more satisfied are the ones making a greater effort to drive adoption. More of those satis- fied have apps that access key enterprise systems (60% compared with 44% of those unsatisfied). The biggest differentiation comes in the area of offering apps to employees and contracted workers, with 53% of those satisfied or very satisfied citing this strategy versus 22% of those who are neutral about satisfaction and 31% of those who are unsatisfied or very unsatisfied with custom app adoption.

  • 21. RECOMMENDATIONS 195 Actionable Tips for Enterprise Mobility Programs ii Get more mobile metrics. For the foreseeable future, most organizations will have more ideas for apps than budget to execute on those ideas. This is just one of many reasons to gather as many met- rics as you can: the number of downloads, ongoing use of the app, the number of app versions, the plat- forms on which the app is being used, who is using the app, and more. Visibility is key to decision-mak- ing and plays an important role in ensuring security and compliance of mobile apps. ii Deploy fine-grained security. Delivering apps that drive access to critical enterprise systems re- quires higher levels of mobile app security. Increase your overall security posture by applying fine- grained security policies at the application level ver- sus attempting to address security at the device or infrastructure level. ii Take action. The time is now for enterprise apps. Your competitors are launching apps, and so should you. Competitive advantage is hard to achieve, but the risk of falling behind is greater. ii Equip the extended enterprise. One insurance compa- ny offers an app that allows independent agents to quickly get quotes and necessary approvals for insurance policies. The app makes sales easier and faster, allowing the inde- pendent agents to sell the company’s insurance products more frequently than its competitors’ products. Offering key apps to employees remains important, but look around to see who else in your ecosystem could benefit from a custom app. Deliver mobile apps to 100% of users, including those in the extended enterprise, to gain a competitive advantage and drive the most value from mobility programs. ii Find apps that matter. Expand the size of the pipeline for custom app development. To do this, you’ll need to curate app ideas and get feedback on existing apps. Offer multiple vectors for people to provide ideas for apps. A suggestion box app helps those who are already inclined toward mobili- ty to offer their ideas for new apps. Reviews in an enterprise app store provide a familiar arena for feedback. For those newer to mobility, use the mobile help desk as a way to gath- er information from users, not just support them. Mobile help desk staff can take suggestions for new apps and pro- vide app owners with valuable feedback about what is and isn’t working for users.
