Developing enterprise mobile applications is one thing. Deploying and ensuring your staff will use those apps is a whole different ball game. Enterprise mobility can have an enormous positive impact on an organization's productivity, efficiency and overall competitiveness. But unless the solution gets high rates of end-user acceptance across your enterprise, the opportunity is lost.
