Defining the right mobile enterprise strategy
Now is the right time to consider your organisational approach to mobility. Regulators demand ongoing improvements in efficiency, look for more evidence when considering asset investment plans and want to see a step change in the approach to customer statisfaction.
Simply put, an enterprise mobility strategy is a set of ground rules that govern mobile initiatives: that is it defines the way in which you intend to deploy mobile technology to achieve your organisational goals.
A mobile enterprise strategy should be process driven. If your business processes are static you can decide on a static approach; one that is simple and easy to maintain. If your business processes are dynamic and ever changing, then you will need a strategy to support this change. A complex strategy may be required which requires more effort to maintain. Ultimately, your business requirements and not the technology should define your strategy.
Once you have set out your strategy, you should then let business cases (return on investment (ROI))drive it forward and evolve it, project after project.
