How Mobility can Foster Innovation

While enterprise mobility is one buzzword of this decade, innovation management is another. What if the two are combined? Mobility can foster growth in innovation and support innovation in multiple ways.

Traditionally innovations have been considered as accidental discoveries. But the modern companies refuse to believe so and are putting in place innovations team comprising of innovation manager and staff. Fresh ideas, fresh ways of doing things and fresh perspectives benefit enterprises enormously, some can even be a turning point for an enterprise.

Encouraging innovation is one of many ways to welcome change and mobility can bring about speed and precision to innovation.

Quick access to data

By mobile-enabling enterprise functionalities, important data can be accessed easily from anywhere, anytime. Innovative ideas are like electric sparks that can create a blast only if the fuel is available at the exact moment. Quick information gathering, keeping data handy and a detailed knowledge of the possible gaps in implementation, helps innovations officers to quickly access supporting data, connect the dots and discover new areas, new consumers, new channels and new methods. This process is reliably supported by enterprise mobility.

Information management and feasibility analysis

Managing and handling innovation needs discipline and commitment. While ideas can emerge from anywhere, excellent ideas can get ignored as well. It is important to manage new ideas, deeply analyze the pros and cons, analyze supporting data, brainstorm and come to a conclusion on the appropriateness of implementing an innovative idea. Mobility allows the staff to document such ideas on the go, brainstorm effectively, and document their thoughts as and when they occur. This quick and efficient collaboration not only saves time and resources, it also fosters creativity and interest which in turn foster innovation.

Idea translation into profits

With great ideas comes great responsibility to translate it ‘effectively’ into profits! Appropriate implementation is the key. When to implement, where and how? are some of the questions that need thorough analysis. Is an idea too early for the market, does it need phased implementation, does it need tweaking, what if it backfires, what are the challenges? Mobility allows the staff to access and document information quickly. Real-time effect of the idea can be observed. Simulations can be carried out and various analysis reports can be accessed at the tip of your fingers; quick projections can be carried out. All these help one understand the impact of a new idea implementation and allow the CIO to decide if the idea is worth pursuing. Any losses can be contained with efficient use of mobility by the staff.

While a great innovation is necessary, it is of no use if it cannot be translated into profits with better data management, speed to market, feasible and superior implementation, post implementation analysis and efficient follow through. Mobility allows an enterprise to achieve just that and is very apt in today’s business ecosystem.
