Looking Ahead to 2016: The Enterprise Mobility Exchange Analyst Insight Report
Key opportunities and requirements for organisations investing in enterprise mobility applications in 2016, as well as the challenges that lay ahead and how mobility leaders can overcome these.
The global mobile workforce topped 1.3 billion workers in 2015, a year which also witnessed smartphone shipments in excess of 1.4 billion units. While ready access to highly functional mobile devices, comprehensive wireless network coverage and development of capable mobile applications is transforming how businesses operate, as we enter 2016 the enterprise mobility opportunity remains very ahead of us.
In fact, according to VDC’s research, as of 2015 only one in three mobile workers have mobile access to enterprise applications (beyond email) or access to specialised mobile applications to support their workflows. This is beginning to change – albeit slowly – and for organisations able to properly harness this opportunity the benefits in increased productivity, improved customer service, optimised asset management, reduced cash cycles, and the like, will be immense.
The mobile application represents the epi-center of digital transformation and in this report we will explore some of the key opportunities and requirements for organisations investing in enterprise mobility applications in 2016, as well as the challenges that lay ahead and how mobility leaders can overcome these.
