Over the past two to three years more employees have begun to bring their own mobile devices to work. In fact, nearly 80 percent of employees now bring their own personal devices to work. A multitude of managed mobility services (MMS) has appeared in the past two years alone to help enterprises manage the overflow of different mobile devices accessing private networks and sensitive company information. And for good reason, now enterprises are relying on MMS to handle everything from mobile email to mobile applications. After all, Enterprise IT spend has reached an estimated $3.4 trillion worldwide, and telecom accounts for 15 percent of that spend.
Born out of one of the great paradigm shifts in modern business- the growth of the Internet of Things (IoT), and endless endpoints – that’s mobile devices, laptops, wearables, sensors, and more – it’s more important than ever for enterprises to understand their entire telecom infrastructure. Utilizing a provider that can create an effective managed mobility strategy to substantially grow forward-thinking organizations.
The right MMS program goes beyond cost savings. It can help organizations with optimization and efficiency in the acquisition, deployment, and management of mobile devices. Here’s what business executives should know when choosing to invest in Enterprise Mobility Services:
- Ensure the MMS can Streamline, Automate and Optimize IT Business Processes
An MMS solution creates a seamlessly integrated mobility environment, where device and data details can be acted on from anywhere at any time. It is imperative that the integration runs smoothly with all other existing IT management systems within a company, such as directory services, content management platforms, email and mobile app managers, and others. This makes it easy to automate processes to optimize efficiencies. Otherwise, the company will have to procure and deploy other systems as well, which could end up being very costly and time-consuming and potentially negate all the cost benefits of an MMS purchase in the first place. MMS makes it possible to integrate endpoints across all business units, so everyone has insights into various data and departments. Only when you have this level of visibility can you effectively streamline, automate and optimize.
- Ensure the MMS has Consistent Experience for Users Around the World
In a typical enterprise organization, the workforce varies from sales, operations, marketing, finance, and more. But what is constant is the need for IT to manage the most “personal” part of the user experience.
