Using a mobile device is easy. Building a mobile enterprise that supports and secures hundreds, if not thousands of mobile devices, in your location and around the world, with limited staff and an increasing number of unauthorized equipment, is not.

To uncover what it takes to have a successful IT strategy on the mobile front, IBM and IDC have collaborated on a newly-published study, “Putting mobile first: best practices of mobile technology leaders.”  The study is based on interviews with 361 IT executives in seven countries around the world and focuses on the adoption and benefits of mobile technologies in the enterprise. What exactly are mobile leaders doing to embrace mobile in the enterprise? Simply put, they’re planning, integrating, optimizing and managing their mobile infrastructures.

According to the study, mobile leaders are taking a strategic approach to planning mobile development and strategies, integrating mobile across the enterprise including monetization, optimizing mobile information technology infrastructure, and finally, managing mobile security.  

While most enterprises are struggling to define a mobile security policy, implement BYOD programs, move beyond e-mail and embrace mobile applications, today’s mobile leaders are doing all that and more to integrate mobile into the fabric of their business

Because mobile is a disruptive and evolving technology many enterprises are also challenged by the growing mobile skills gap. But rather than hire all the mobile experts they need, today’s mobile leaders are engaging external information technology far more often than non-leaders. In the IBM/IDC Study, 86 percent of respondents indicated that an external provider can help them better address the skills gap and achieve their mobility goals as well as undertake additional mobile projects.

Becoming a mobile enterprise begins with a strategy and includes policy, education and technology. Understanding the current state of mobility, the desired end goal and the gaps are critically important to developing and executing a roadmap.

Many enterprises simply “don’t know what they don’t know” especially with mobile. Engaging an experienced professional that can articulate “the art of the possible” and draw on the experience of developing mobile solutions for similar clients worldwide, can not only speed up time to market and reduce costs, but build a sustainable IT strategy for a dynamic mobile environment moving forward.

Whatever you are doing, never let your dry cleaning find themselves in your guy’s closet.
Are you tired of having to play games and seeking to figure out
what men want. Relationships certainly are a 50-50 partnership, a variety of action and reaction.

I was just looking for this information for some time. After six hours of continuous Googleing, finally I got it in your site. I wonder what is the lack of Google strategy that don’t rank this kind of informative websites in top of the list. Normally the top sites are full of garbage.

Your concept is outstanding; the difficulty is something that not enough individuals are speaking intelligently about.
