Just a few decades ago, many employers needed switchboard operators, mimeograph repair technicians, typists, and other employees to fill roles that don’t exist today. Now, desktop publishers, LAN operators, and Webmasters are just a few examples of jobs that would not have been recognized even in the 1990’s.
Not only has the landscape of employment changed drastically within the past 50 years, but the way people work has changed as well. Today, telecommuting, remote management, and work style flexibility have become more prevalent than ever, along with an increasing reliance on technology.
To cater to this new workplace reality, organizations need to run their operations with a strong mobile foundation. By making enterprise mobility a priority, organizations can:
- Enhance their organization’s agility by ensuring that key players have secure access to business information at all times, enabling employees to make effective decisions at any time
- Engage their customers on an entirely new level by having the ability to connect with others whenever information is needed
- Give employees the ability to make decisions in a seamless, efficient manner
- Optimize business workflows and achieve noticeable productivity gains, which can greatly contribute to profitability
However, in order to reap the many rewards of enterprise mobility, organizations have to go about it in a particular manner. This means that any mobile devices and applications should be readily available and should be seamlessly integrated within an organization’s operations.
