Mobile Enterprise Solutions Take Off Due to Necessary Connectivity Between Mobile and Traditional Devices
From connections to server infrastructure to total cost of ownership, the article "Apps Mania 3: Managing Change in Enterprise Applications" sums up how to efficiently manage applications after they are in place.
An agile mindset is necessary for the successful implementation and deployment of apps. The article reminds anyone in the field of the following guidelines:
On-going change is a massive consideration in the management of applications. As well as mobile device lifecycles, your business needs will inevitably change with time and with the demands of your customers. As a result, careful consideration must be given to the impact of change. Mobile applications should be designed to cope with every changing demand of your customers and of the market. Dynamic flexibility which caters for change is a must for the enterprise applications of fieldworkers.
The most important idea to remember is that mobile apps should not have to be contained to one platform. It is important with increasingly liberal policies regarding devices to ensure apps are compatible with any number of operating systems and devices. The consistency and connectivity between traditional and mobile devices will become something to watch develop as we see mobile enterprise solutions take off.
