Software Doesn’t Have to Be Hard

management software

We’re living in a software-driven world. Today’s enterprise mobility programs simply can’t survive without effective management software. Unfortunately, not all solutions are created equal. Software purchases motivated by cost can be risky – saving money upfront for a product that doesn’t satisfy your needs not only loses an initial investment, but also doubles effort as the search for a different solution must begin. Mobility software’s value is based on its ability to satisfy unique enterprise needs, not how quickly it can meet arbitrary deadlines or small-scale project goals. Companies need an expert management solution. In fact, 69% of today’s mobility spend originates outside IT, meaning employees unfamiliar with technology often play a large role in program decisions and direction. Your software should centralize, comprehend, and control your entire mobility ecosystem. Centralize Cutting-edge software enables your organization to control up to…

Dwindling Devices

devices

Enterprises leverage mobility to limit inefficiencies. Today however, corporate mobility has narrowed down something else: devices. Over the course of 2016, 99.6% of all new smartphones sold were either Android or iOS models. This means businesses are increasing their focus on device inventories. And increased device focus means optimization and enhanced security for enterprise mobility programs. In Q4 last year, 1.1 million Windows phones and 208,000 BlackBerry devices were sold worldwide. While these figures don’t sound small, they start to shrink when you find out that more than 432 million smartphones were sold during this three-month period. That got us thinking: what’s the most commonly managed customer smartphone at MOBI? The answer: Samsung Galaxy Note II 16GB. These devices make up almost 7% of our total managed smartphones.

data-driven

Enterprise data is more valuable than ever. Business intelligence has become so important, in fact, that companies are increasingly leveraging data to drive mobility strategies and decisions. Unfortunately, usable data isn’t found easily. Your program must align its people, processes, and technology before data-driven mobility can be successfully implemented. Once that happens however, its full potential (and a myriad of benefits) can be unleashed: Accelerated Growth and Goals Data-driven mobility programs are better equipped to understand and evaluate not only their current standing, but also where and how they need to progress. Compared to traditional programs, feedback from data-centric operations and activities is much more frequent, comprehensive, and actionable. These efforts are also capable of leveraging interdepartmental decision-making teams to align company goals, practices, and technology. This ensures data is being used to effectively satisfy both short- and long-term mobility…
