Companies should no longer be asking why they should be adopting an Enterprise Mobility strategy, but rather when.
Due to its versatility, mobility provides businesses with competitive tools for sustained growth but also introduces considerable risk. There are a number of reasons why companies should be considering a mobile strategy to get the right balance.
The top five reasons include:
1. Productivity Benefits
One of the primary benefits of Enterprise Mobility is productivity gains from anywhere, anytime access. This is achieved by providing employees with critical applications, and resources, via corporate or BYOD devices, allowing them to complete business objectives anywhere, anytime securely. By providing digital communication and connectivity in real time, employees can connect customers with the right solution seamlessly.
2. Data Sharing Enablement
The anywhere, anytime ability for employees to share relevant data is a great benefit to businesses. Enterprise Mobility enables employees to share screens, data, and insights to educate customers and facilitate internal knowledge transfer easily. An enterprise mobility strategy provides the foundation to enable this capability while implementing the necessary compliance policies to ensure secure communication. The benefit to enterprise is increased opportunities, greater corporate transparency, and enhanced customer engagement.
3. Effective Cost Management
Enterprise Mobility can reduce IT costs for businesses in a variety of ways, including reducing in-house applications and ongoing IT maintenance through effective performance measurement & management. Expense management can not only optimise spending across the business but ensure it is correctly allocated to the right business unit. Enterprise Mobility solutions provide cost visibility, predictability, and management today as the business grows.
4. Data Security Management
Mobility, due to its versatility, provides businesses with competitive tools for sustained growth but also introduces considerable risk. Each device represents a door into the corporate network. Mobile Device Management, Enterprise Mobility Management and Mobile Threat Management solutions all assist in securing mobile systems and enable businesses to monitor their assets, as well as respond to and recover from data breaches, lost and stolen devices, and cyber-attacks. Their combined security features secure corporate data, manage and control risks, and provide role-based corporate access in a strategic, systematic manner.
5. Targeted Support
Enterprise Mobility helps free up IT departments by providing timely and targeted support to end users. This keeps employees connected to tools and resources to achieve business outcomes and focuses IT resources on building and maintaining critical business systems. It also enables companies to realise the benefits associated with new technologies sooner, allowing for greater insights derived from the data collected and enables more timely business decisions.
With the ability to enhance customer &employee experiences, increase productivity, and reduce the costs associated with in-house IT – Enterprise Mobility provides companies with a competitive advantage and the tools required for successful, sustained, growth.
