Most enterprise-mobility programs are challenged to meet their ultimate business goals. While users are often frustrated and unable to work on their terms, IT has lost control of its infrastructure and the faith of its customers, and finance is struggling to justify the cost of solutions that hasn’t charmed them. All of these results are suboptimal investments and, most important, are unable to achieve meaningful productivity that mobility should enable.
Adding tools or budget alone cannot solve enterprise-mobility challenges, and without strategic realignment, those efforts can permeate adverse impacts. The current situation reflects a fundamental disconnect in how business units relate, how companies structure mobility programs, and how IT acquires and integrates the technology to automate those programs.
In this webinar, our panel will address these topics:
- What is the current state of enterprise mobility management (EMM) software, and why?
- What is the current relationship between EMM tools and the mobility services IT provides?
- What does the mobile user need, and how can IT refocus on meeting those needs?
- What entirely new options could EMM present to mobile users in the future?
- How are leading businesses moving toward a user-focused EMM strategy, and what lessons can other businesses learn from them?
