Driving Enterprise Mobile App Usage: Moving from Stuck to Secure, Scalable, Usable -- and Productive
by Ranjeet Vidwans
The networked PC-era balance of access to services and data against securing the same assets seems to drive mobile users away in droves. Author Ranjeet Vidwans picks up on market data that 61% of enterprises have deployed three mobile apps or fewer, and 60% of enterprise users have stopped using mobile computing at work completely. In his article, Vidwans explores the reasons behind this dynamic and finds that the freedom of using one's own personal mobile "anywhere" device has raised the bar substantially for the enterprise. Poor capacity planning that causes performance issues and traditionally conservative security measures that create friction for the user with just a few minutes to spare -- a "niche" work opportunity, as Vidwans calls it -- exists in stark contrast to the ease of use of all the personal services that exist on the phone.
