IDC's Asia/Pacific Enterprise Mobility Conference 2014
29 Apr 2014
International Data Corporation (IDC) the premier global provider of market intelligence, advisory services, and events for the information technology, telecommunications, and consumer technology markets executed its Asia/Pacific Enterprise Mobility Conference 2014 today in Mumbai. The event was attended by senior IT decision makers from a cross-section of industries to discuss and understand how mobility will be impacting future businesses and the operating environment.
Shiv Putcha, Associate Research Director, Consumer Mobility, IDC Asia/ Pacific said, "2014 should be an exciting year for Enterprise Mobility across Asia. Among several existing trends, IDC believes that there will be some evolution, with more companies evolving their offerings to Mobile Enterprise Management (MEM) solutions; and some revolution, with more companies implementing Choose Your Own Device (CYOD) policies. All in all, we expect enterprises of all size to pay strong attention to their increasingly mobile-first customers and drive Mobility across their businesses."
Enterprise Mobility is truly coming of age. Over the past 12 months, nearly all major technology vendors have made mobility one of their key focus areas which have driven awareness and confidence across the enterprise customer base. With this change, all the components, including stable devices, fast and reliable networks, robust mobile security solutions and the scalable applications required for companies to develop and support complex enterprise mobility solutions are now in place. So the question is - why are so few companies leveraging enterprise mobility solutions to drive competitive advantage and deliver business transformation?
IDC's recent survey, Enterprise Mobility 2013 Trends and Priorities, found that more than 37% of organizations across major industry verticals in India consider Mobility a top enterprise IT priority for the current fiscal year, thereby validating our belief in the rise of enterprise mobility in India.. The challenge these companies face is that they have taken a reactive approach to addressing the challenges and opportunities created by mobility. The objective of IDC's Enterprise Mobility Summit 2014 is to help companies identify the steps they need to evolve their mobility offerings and to deliver tangible business benefits, including enhancing their mobility strategy, planning for the physical and financial resources required, investing in infrastructure and platforms for growth versus point solutions and delivering all their solutions securely.
Enterprise Mobility is a key element to delivering the capabilities of future workspace. Having a mobility strategy is now a critical requirement for many organizations. It's a confusing environment and organizations are looking for best-practice examples in areas such as mobile security, applications development and bring your own device (BYOD).
Some of the increasing challenges for enterprise IT which will be discussed at the conference are –
- How to incorporate your mobile strategy into your business strategy
- To identify what users and processes should be mobilized
- To design, deploy, secure and manage your various initiatives
- To build out the required skill sets to support these offerings, whether through up-skilling your existing workforce or leveraging partner relationships
IDC's Enterprise Mobility Summit 2014 helped companies identify the steps they need to evolve their mobility offerings and to deliver tangible business benefits, including enhancing their mobility strategy, planning for the physical and financial resources required, investing in infrastructure and platforms for growth versus point solutions and delivering all their solutions securely.
