While Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) programs are very widely adopted, far fewer companies have implemented a comprehensive enterprise mobility strategy. When there isn't a consistent governance policy in place, the approach to mobility tends to become fragmented and siloed, with each department executing on its own strategy.
Without a high-level, enterprise view of mobility and the governance policy to support it, mobility management will be supported by a series of redundant and fragmented point solutions, which can be quite costly. Worse still, failure to implement an end-to-end strategy leads to increased risk and sub-optimal service from lack of coordination.
As the mobility phenomenon matures over time, companies are increasingly looking at mobility from a much higher level. Forget about devices. Forget about applications. What matters is the whole end-to-end experience, making sure that things are secure, things are compliant, and that you're helping your customers with applications that they need at every point in the lifecycle.
Arun Bhattacharya of CA Technologies has recently written an eBooklet called Seven Ways to Create an Unbeatable Enterprise Mobility Strategy, where he outlines what business and IT leaders need to do NOW to manage their business's mobile future.
Even if you can't anticipate all the ways mobility will transform your business three, five, or 10 years out, Bhattacharya gives you concrete ways you can get started today to develop an enterprise mobility strategy that will accelerate your mobility transformation and ensure you are prepared for what the future has in store.
