By first taking a Human-Centric Design Approach, Enterprise Mobility projects should benefit from proven processes and capabilities.
In a world quickly ramping up to 5G Gigabit speeds where the ability to not only replicate app services, but bring them to massive scale, presents both unique challenges and opportunities.
As Enterprise Mobility continues to advance with AI and Machine Learning capabilities, apps take on more mission critical objectives as well as present a disruptive competitive edge in industries that leverage emerging technologies.
According to Gartner’s Top Ten Strategic Technology Trends 2018, right behind Trend 1: AI, Trend No. 2: Intelligent Apps and Analytics:
Over the next few years every app, application and service will incorporate AI at some level. This will transform the way in which people work and inherently challenges traditional enterprise software applications and calls for a need to outline how apps will leverage advanced analytics, intelligent processes and advanced user experiences.
In addition to overall continued growth in Enterprise Mobility, the applications, user experiences, and technologies deployed will continue to evolve and take on even greater widespread usages in an IoT environment.
As design and product development teams begin with ideas, the ability to utilize a more structured application that adheres to embedded process and proven methodologies such as SAP Leonardo enables the creative team to focus on the more core aspects of their role.
Through Design Thinking on open innovation platforms, teams can take advantage of tools available and through the alignment of the research, built in design-gate reviews, build applications that have a higher propensity for successful enterprise scalability and outcomes.
As entire industries, along with Smart City initiatives begin to reimagine how IoT interconnectivity can improve citizen lives, create greater efficiencies, and contribute to solving some of the most urgent and severe challenges, there is an opportunity for mobility projects to take on greater significance.
However, according to a Harvard Business Review article, digital transformation failures rates range from 66-84%, despite it being the right course of action. They attribute it to the influx of emerging competencies amidst strong legacy cultures and operating models.
Rapid change and acceleration of emerging technologies such as AI-powered Enterprise Mobility solutions can challenge these existing models when seamless integration and scalability are not considered from the onset.
So, how does one not get left behind, become obsolete, or suffer the consequences of failed projects?
SAP Leonardo Industry Innovation Kits offer a unique solution to help teams design, develop, and create solutions more quickly and better aligned with industry, technology, and scalability in mind.
By taking a more human-centric approach and leveraging proven methodologies along with the sophistication of emerging and advanced enterprise capabilities, combined with an industry focus, it allows teams to design and develop applications faster with better predictability.
Whether you embrace the notion of mobile to create or enhance services or consider yourself a digital disruptor, the status quo should beware; Times Are A Changin’.
