How Mobility Transforms Enterprise Productivity

By now, nearly every CIO must appreciate how mobility and bring your own device adoption is ultimately good for their organizations, especially when it comes to increased employee productivity. For starters, employees in the field complete mission-critical tasks in real-time; they no longer gather information in one place, and then return to an office to transcribe what they learned on the road. Because workers are constantly connected, they're always able to communicate, and are more likely to keep working even during off-hours. (Of course, this can be a good and a bad thing, if taken to extremes.) But, beyond these fundamental shifts, mobility is making less obvious and more transformational impact upon enterprise productivity while reducing costs. To illustrate just a sampling of the "how so?" here, we're presenting the following statistics and emerging practices. Combined, they demonstrate why three of five companies are increasing their mobile investments, and why mobile app testing now consumes at least one-quarter of an IT department's budget. Our statistics and practices were adopted by a variety of online resources, including those posted by Apperian and Intel.
