Mobility

Your workers want to go mobile. Are you ready to keep up?

Going mobile is no longer as simple as issuing cell phones and laptops to field sales. The consumerization of IT means every unique user group has a unique mobile demand. When we think about mobility today, we think of two new user groups – each of which begs its own questions about device types, use policies, management, and more.

For example, many of today’s office workers want to stay connected and productive outside normal business hours. Here are a few questions you might ask when addressing this user group:

  • Freedom of choice.
    Do I deploy a single mobile device type across the enterprise, or do I offer a choice from a preapproved list of devices?
  • Bring your own device.
    Will I allow users to work from their personal smartphones or tablets? If so, what are the security and support ramifications of a Bring Your Own Device policy?
  • User privacy.
    How do I handle employee privacy, particularly as it pertains to browsing history and more importantly geo-location data?

A second key group is virtual, remote, and contract workers who log in from outside a corporate location. A few questions to consider:

  • Mobile security.
    What security measures are required to prevent intellectual property and other sensitive data from entering the public domain?
  • Reliable access.
    How do I ensure reliable access so that remote users remain productive and available throughout their shift?
  • Enterprise scalability.
    What are my staffing requirements as mobility spreads across the enterprise? In other words, how do I manage hundreds or thousands of mobile devices?

At Telapprise, we help you answer these questions and empower you to manage all the mobile devices in your environment. That keeps your enterprise secure and your workers productive wherever they are.
