Organizations need a mobility strategy in place to prioritize their use of resources, identify areas of the enterprise that need to be mobilized, provide consistency and branding for mobile applications and  to re-use the platform, framework and assets that get built.

  • Is it a revenue generation model (profit center) or a non-core IT asset (cost center)?
  • What is the availability of human resources for the project?
  • What is the agility and flexibility of current employees to learn and master new paradigms and new technologies?
  • What is the ability to provide post production support?
  • What would the cost of failure be?
