Enterprise mobility is a strategic tool that accrues business values across functions. Although enterprises like to function on the go, there are a variety of complexities involved in the mobile ecosystem and this perceived complex nature of mobile platforms, technologies and deployment options may deter enterprises from full scale adaption of mobile-enabling services.
Some of the factors that may act as deterrents are:
- Multiple backend systems, legacy solutions and new generation of services
- A growing number of disparate mobile platforms – Symbian, Palm, BlackBerry, iOS, Android, Windows Mobile
- Myriad devices and system software iterations that create a dilemma that can stump even veterans in technology selection and management
- Diverse cellular standards to deal with – GSM, CDMA, WiFi, WiMax, 4G and other promising technologies
However, what enterprises have come to realize is that all this diversity is here to stay. In order to trace the continued growth trajectory, enterprises need to adapt and allow mobility.
The following was the forecast by IDC back in 2007 that projected the mobile professionals at about quarter of a billion by 2011.
Although enterprises cannot change the current mobile world complexity, they can simplify it for their enterprise by building a robust enterprise mobile architecture that plays along with this kind of heterogeneity.
An enterprise mobile platform that can handle different backend systems, mobile devices and infrastructure is the need of the hour. Such a platform offers tools for rapid deployment of applications and services across mobile platforms and networks, synchronizes data transparently, and brings in web services (cloud access, storage and sync) for universal accessibility.
This is not a distant dream but a reality that delivers key enterprise management and security components surpassing the expectations of IT managers and mobile end-users. Karya offers ready to deploy and custom-built enterprise mobility solutions specific to industry verticals.
