The retail world is being transformed by e-commerce, mobile devices, and more competition than ever before. Retailers are using numerous customer-facing and back-office mobile apps, SaaS applications, and legacy systems — all of which are generating more data than ever before about their customers, providing valuable intelligence to create greater customer lifetime value, brand loyalty, and cross-selling across brands and products. Learn how harnessing that data can help retailers cut costs, retain their customers and generate more revenue.
Nearly two-thirds of customers who try to solve issues online or through an interactive voice response (IVR) system inevitably choose to speak with an agent. Can smartphone applications change this interaction landscape for the better?

As mobile operations spread through your organization, how is it possible to manage, support, and configure hundreds if not thousands of mobile applications for employees who use different mobile devices and operating systems requiring different versions of the same applications?
Read this white paper to discover the importance of mobile application management, and learn best practices for establishing it within your organization.
Mobile is not simply another device for IT to support with a shrunken Website or a screen-scraped SAP application. Rather, mobile manifests a broader shift to new engagement systems. CIOs must plan now for them and empower customers, partners, and employees with context-aware apps and smart products.
Smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices have become embedded in enterprise processes, thanks to the consumerization of IT and a new generation of workers raised
on mobile technologies. Consumer devices and bring-yourown-device (BYOD) programs are driving a new wave of business process innovation, changing the way customers, employees and partners interact with organizations and with each other. In fact, mobile devices and applications are catching up with — and in many cases surpassing — PCs in the quality and functionality of their applications.
Many organizations are seeing clear and quantifiable benefits from the deployment of mobile technologies that provide access to data and applications any time, anywhere. These benefits often include increased profits, a more efficient and productive workforce, and enhanced customer service.
Many, if not most, organizations today are grappling with the challenge of a growing mobile technology environment. Mobility can deliver many key benefits: improved collaboration among workers, enhanced customer service, easier access to corporate information from many locations and increased productivity—to name a few.
But the proliferation of mobile devices and applications
also comes with its share of challenges, perhaps none more important than ensuring the security of the devices themselves as well as the data they contain and the enterprise networks they access.
Mobile devices are ubiquitous. The wide variety of functions
they provide on the go — everything from making phone
calls to checking email to literally millions of applications —
has created widespread demand around the globe for this
technology. With the right tools, an organization can extend
the workplace far beyond its own physical walls. And
employees can be active at any time within the 24-hour
cycle; whenever inspiration strikes, a smartphone or tablet
can quickly harness their productivity.
It’s official — BYOD is here, and there’s no turning back. Mobile Device Management (MDM) gives employees the freedom to connect whenever, wherever for increased productivity and a better work-life balance. But every smartphone, tablet and notebook is a potential gateway for unauthorized applications, malware and other security threats.
Even with the latest devices, your mobile workforce may not have
what they need to get the job done. Without a strategy to provide them with data and applications, they’re forced to work without them or find workarounds that can compromise security.
Today’s workers are constantly on the move, and IT departments are scrambling to keep up. Access to email is not enough. You must address the legacy applications that your employees can’t easily access from their mobile devices, knowing that app development can be cost prohibitive and complex. And you have to have a strategy in place to secure and manage every application in use.
The right apps can enhance employee productivity, reduce expenses and increase profitability which means apps decisions are among the most important decisions your organization makes. This brief addresses everything from app costs to how choose the right platform to build on.

Wearable operational video (such as helmet cams), mobile cameras and sensors, and other visual technologies can provide crucial intelligence, which then can be gathered, communicated to personnel in disparate locations, and integrated to enable unified collaboration for public security responses. The possibility is emerging for a new generation of video applications that will enhance public security and disaster management.
Wireless technology surrounds us — in the workplace, at home, and many places in between. Mobile phones, WiFi networks, wireless computer accessories, and cordless phones all use radio transmissions for wireless communication. Even devices not used for communication, such as microwave ovens and lighting systems, emit radio frequency energy that can impact wireless devices. In this crowded radio environment, two technologies have emerged as the standard for wireless voice communication in UC and enterprise applications.
Emerging technologies empower, but they can also confuse. Workers in the new mobile landscape struggle to manage communications with mobile phones, landlines, VoIP calls and different voicemail boxes, email, IM, text messages and social networking applications. Unified Communications is the answer. It’s the bridge between all these communication systems helping manage communications with one interface.
Many CISOs admit to trepidation about the state of cybersecurity within their organizations. Why? Aside from the increasingly dangerous threat landscape, many large organizations face other security challenges, including personnel shortages, an overwhelming number of manual processes, and technology complexity.
Beyond these issues however, CISOs also face the progressively difficult responsibility of securing the distributed enterprise. Aside from PCs, departmental file servers, and remote office equipment, the distributed enterprise now includes recent IT additions like mobile computing, SaaS applications, and hybrid cloud infrastructure. In aggregate, this increasingly distributed infrastructure makes information security more cumbersome.

Enabling the mobile workforce to be productive is the ultimate goal of any mobile business initiative. While the idea that mobile devices like the iPad, Galaxy Tab and today’s leading smartphones can change how users work in the enterprise is well established, the real challenge is how to enable a mobile workforce to have device access to all the different content they need to do their job without having to circumvent security and content governance objective or require users to learn a mix of consumer oriented software tools and work in different user interfaces in order to be productive. Viewing, editing, annotating and sharing content must be available from the same application.
Employees today want more—and they need more—if they’re going to stay productive from anywhere, which is usually the primary goal of having mobile devices in the first place.
The right apps can enhance employee productivity, reduce expenses, and increase profitability which means that the decisions you make about the apps your organization uses are among the most important decisions your organization makes. No pressure, right? Our Mobile Application Development solution brief covers:
