Flexibility

The new enterprise mobility must leverage mobile devices, couple them to freely available business cloud services and marry them into an infrastructure that is flexible enough to support business going forward.

A new paradigm of how to manage information will emerge to support this. Using email and search to share and find information will not scale – a new way of organizing information – using a variety of automated contextual filters will emerge; for example, automatically extracting topics from application updates and matching them across disconnected systems so information can be filtered effectively will be one way that employees will deal with information overload.

Despite years of discussions on enterprise mobility and BYOD, there are very few real business use cases that demonstrate real ROI. While we have much to accomplish in our quest for the mobile enterprise, many lessons have already been learned; lessons we can apply moving forward.

First of all, we need to redefine what we mean by "enterprise mobility." Yesterday's "BYOD" was about giving employees physical, mobile devices. Today's enterprise mobility is about actually giving them the tools they need to be productive. This goes beyond contacts, email, and calendaring capabilities; it focuses on creating a coherent work environment for employees so they have access to information they need and are able to cut through the jungle of overwhelming data. In this slideshow, David Lavenda, vice president of product strategy at harmon.ie, explores how/why enterprise mobility must change based on evidence of what has already worked and what has not during the first phase of mobile consumerization of the enterprise.

David Lavenda is vice president of product strategy, harmon.ie. For the past 20 years, David has served as an executive for a number of high-tech companies. After completing a undergraduate degree in physics, advanced studies in electrical engineering, and an MBA in marketing, David co-founded Business Layers, an identity management company, serving as VP marketing and product strategy from its inception until the company's successful sale five years later.
