Enterprise Mobility Dominates IT Agenda in 2014

Enterprise mobility projects will increase domination of the global IT agenda in 2014—and beyond, according to a recent survey from the Enterprise Mobility Exchange. The accompanying report, "The Global State of Enterprise Mobility: A Look to the Past, Present and Future," provides a comprehensive perspective of enterprise mobility, including best practices for acquisition and implementation, which we've included here. Ultimately, with the appropriate buy-in from stakeholders, many CIOs will get approval to make greater investments in applications, devices and mobile device management (MDM). At the same time, however, CIOs and their IT teams must work closely with users to ensure they can get the most out of bring your own device (BYOD) products and apps, while not increasing security risks. (CIOs should also take similar, proactive steps in partnering with third parties who are introduced into the mobile-enterprise landscape.) More than 150 mobile professionals, including IT purchase decision-makers, project managers and solution providers, participated in the research. For more about the survey, click here.
