By 2020, the world will support 33 billion Internet-connected devices — 4.3 devices for every person in the world. Many of these will cross over into business use. Most IT departments are still working to prepare for this onslaught of security risk and management challenges. They need a plan for embracing mobility as a competitive business tool. Any plan, to be effective, must account for several challenges, including:
Patchwork deployment - When the organization lacks a central mobile strategy, IT often improvises its policies, apps, clo ud solutions and management tools. This is a recipe for inefficiency, incompatibility, and poor scalability.
Mobile Multiplicity- When two out of every three employees use a mobile device for work, IT must inevitably cope with a broad spectrum of devices, platforms and carriers. The excuse of “we don’t support your device” will not suffice.
Security and Policy- Smart organizations must implement smart policies. These policies will fit organizational needs and help ensure that workers stay happy but data remains safe against a host of challenges.
Total Mobility Management (TMM) is a comprehensive platform that makes implementing, managing, and securing mobile devices simple.
