So Your Company Wants to Go Mobile. Now What?

…..scratch that, NEEDS to go mobile.  With pressures rising to access networks remotely, obtain cutting edge mobile solutions and support personal devices, now is the time to consider your mobile strategy.  These pressures will not go away, in fact they will only increase. 

Does your organization tend to cautiously adopt mobile solutions only after they are proven in the market?  Well, you are not alone – according to a survey by IDG Research and CIO Magazine you are in the majority of 87%.  But can you afford to wait?

The benefits of enterprise mobility are many, ranging from improved productivity and customer support to increased competitive advantage.   And the pressures are coming from all angles – HR, Sales, Operations, Finance….

So how can we address this gap between cautious adoption and rising pressures?  The key is a sound mobile strategy.  A strategy that covers all aspects of your business.  That touches as many departments and processes as possible.  An ad-hoc approach is just not going to cut it.
