Enterprise mobility programs are unique. No two businesses or verticals have the same mobile technology demands, so a cloud software solution must be flexible and capable of resolving virtually any issue. MOBI’s industry-leading cloud software platform centralizes, comprehends, and controls device ecosystems for almost 20 different verticals.

Time to Grow Up?

second chance

Almost every enterprise uses mobile devices today. However, more than 80% are still stuck in the initial stages of mobile maturity. Despite numerous features and functionalities, 38% of companies leverage mobility solely for remote email and calendar access. Another 43% are only slightly more mature because they collect basic program data and have implemented additional device security. The most mature efforts out there are “additive;” about 19% of programs feature application integration capabilities, location-based device data, and multi-factor device authentication. Nine percent also utilize interactive software tools that facilitate third-party collaboration and external data analysis. No mobility program is fully mature, but a Mobility Management Platform (MMP) accelerates organizational progress and makes businesses 29% more profitable and 15% more productive.

MWC

I just got back from Barcelona, where a few colleagues and I attended MWC. While there, the topic that dominated conversation was how elemental enterprise mobility has become. What started as an obscure technology is now a revolutionary force responsible for driving innovation. Many MOBIans have witnessed this transformation firsthand; it’s been exciting for us to watch. However, enterprise mobility’s evolution has come with unexpected side effects that have impacted various industries. Here are five changes we discussed at MWC: Manufacturing The management of mobile devices is moving beyond multipurpose technology in the manufacturing sector. Smartphones and other devices that are assigned to an individual increasingly must coexist with things like ruggedized devices that are purpose-built and generally assigned to a department or cost center instead. Despite this fundamental difference, both device types share common needs: asset tracking and lifecycle…
