The Asia/Pacific workplace is changing rapidly as users move at lightning speed to adopt new innovative ways to put more of their personal and professional lives on mobile devices. The transformation of mobile devices and new models of utilization are forcing organizations to go beyond the question of whether they need mobility and instead ask how they should be utilizing mobility.
The end user driven mobile movement is just the catalyst of transforming a traditional desktop centric enterprise to a highly agile, mobility-first organization. A mobile-first enterprise can expect tangible improvements in the way it interact with their employees, customers and partners by raising employee productivity, improving customer relationships and satisfaction, and streamlining business processes and operations. Additionally, mobility is the platform where companies can continuously deliver innovations that differentiate themselves in this highly competitive, hyper connected world.
The challenges in highly complex mobility environment are plenty and IDC had identified following core issues that impact IT decision makers and service providers alike:
Strategy: Maintaining status quo is a recipe for failure. Mobility Strategy needs to address immediate issues as well
as long term mobility growth planning, with milestones, KPIs firmly in place
Mobile Centric Security: Mobile security is not just about device management anymore. Mobile centric security
means end to end security solution for mobility that include device, app, data/content security as well as ensuring the
network is well protected against attacks from mobile devices
Application utilization: Unrestricted mobile app usage is not only insecure, but also inefficient. Mobile business apps
will become the engine that drive mobility growth in any organization, and proper planning and execution of mobile
app management and utilization should be on any CIO’s mobility checklist
Devices: BYOD kicked off the enterprise mobility movement, and it continue to do so. However, organizations cannot
expect BYOD to be their long term or only device strategy as there are just too many limitations to the BYOD model.
Organizations will need adopt the choose your own device (CYOD) model to retain management and secure, as well
as drive measureable improvements from device utilization
User segmentation: Mobility is not one size fits all, neither are the users. Organizations need to analyze user behaviour and deliver segmented services to ensure full mobile utilization
