|Application-Centric Enterprise Mobility||Platform-Based Enterprise Mobility|
a platform-based mobile infrastructure and the transformative power of largescale business mobility. To take full advantage of what enterprise mobility can do for business operations, organizations need to “think outside the department.” They need to consider strategies that not only provide access to business information across the enterprise, but also capture valuable business data at its source. A platform-based strategy provides the controls needed to fully manage applications, costs, and security while staying on the leading edge of this rapidly changing technology.
- Business managers benefit by having options that offer them the fastest time to value from a given IT investment, solutions that leverage existing IT systems, and solutions that will support future mobile technologies.
- IT managers benefit by delivering a high-value mobile infrastructure that has complete visibility and control over mobile devices, applications, operations, and costs. This highly advantageous infrastructure is also highly secure, integrates easily with existing business applications and authentication systems, and requires minimal support for end users.
- Developers benefit by having a platform that lets them quickly build and update complex applications. This is helped by out-of-the-box containers that have built-in data integration, user authentication, and security, which allow developers to focus their efforts on creating business logic and attractive user interfaces.
- Users, including employees, suppliers, partners, and customers, benefit by having applications with well-designed user interfaces that do not require user configuration. They simply work, and they work on the users’ preferred devices.
