mobility trends

As we’ve entered the new year, mobility has evolved into an essential enterprise function that drives organizational progress and success. While it’s difficult to predict the industry’s rapid development and expansion, that doesn’t stop us from trying. Here are eight enterprise mobility trends you’ll soon see at work: Decoupling Network Airtime from Devices Enterprise mobility programs have purchased cross-subsidized devices from network services providers for years; don’t expect this to last much longer. Outside the United States, it’s nearly impossible to find a carrier that offers these subsidies because they don’t make fiscal sense – it’s like Exxon Mobil buying you a car because you promised to purchase their gas for the next two years. Entrenched business models die hard. In the past, carriers couldn’t help but hitch their service contracts to flashy new devices. As future mobility trends manifest,…

January 10, 2017 by Matt Louden


What good is an enterprise mobility solution if it exposes your sensitive data? Mobility Management Platforms (MMPs) should provide peace-of-mind, not additional stress and danger.

mobile workforce

Over the next few weeks, millions of employees will work outside traditional cubicle-cramped confines. What the office’s secret Santa may not have shared however, is that a majority of these workers won’t be found onsite after the holidays either. According to Citrix, 61% of today’s workforces are mobile at least part-time every week. Businesses that have embraced this model are experiencing significant benefits, including a 150% return on their mobile investments.[tweet this] The breakneck pace of mobile development and innovation, combined with increased enterprise reliance on Managed Mobility Services (MMS), has led to a proliferation of remote employees.

mature mobility

Every day, we work with companies who enjoy the advantages of mature enterprise mobility. Unfortunately, only 30% of today’s businesses believe mobility is central to their success, and only 19% describe their current technology strategy as mobile-first. Employee demand for out-of-office capabilities and mobile workplace technologies is increasing exponentially, forcing organizations to “grow up” from an enterprise mobility standpoint. Here is how your business can generally expect immature and mature mobility efforts to differ: Immature, Ineffective, and Insecure Low-maturity mobility programs do little, if anything at all, to accommodate mobile devices and digital strategy. Traditional, PC-based technology is applied to smartphones and tablets, resulting in poor user experiences. Programs mired in mobile immaturity ultimately lack the expertise required to uncover and maintain substantial, long-term benefits. Despite each program’s unique differences, low mobile maturity exhibits almost universal symptoms. Usually, mobile device…
