Even with the technological changes in both hardware and software, there still exists a gap in the transition to a mobile ready enterprise: a mindset change. The cultural impacts of enterprise mobility are the heaviest hitting. CIO Dashboard discusses this in "The Mindset of a Mobile Ready Enterprise."
Three action items are discussed. It is recommended that enteprise organizations prepare for norms to change and put policies in place that faciliate the new paradigm. Secondly, the user experience will need to become an even greater priority. The final advice given is to act without fear of failure.
The article's explanation on this is as follows:
The business must embrace a fast- fail capability. Such a capability fosters low-cost mechanisms and processes that let an organization launch and run multiple mobility experiments at the same time. Short duration projects enable you to quickly validate what is right and what is wrong. It’s OK to build an app that will only be used for 6 months and then thrown away.
Organizations looking for new innovative technologies can embrace failure to an extent, but we suggest checking out some innovative enterprise consulting experts before wasting too much money and time on failed projects.
