Research shows that over 90% of organizations now have employees using smartphones within their work environments. Depending on the size of the organization, this can cover tens of thousands of individuals. However, enterprise mobility management can be a daunting task for organizations.
The first step in managing mobility is to have a mobility policy. Other research has shown that companies with defined mobility policies have higher returns on their mobility investments in terms of workforce flexibility, employee responsiveness to customer needs, as well revenues and profitability that can be attributed to their mobility investments. This document is meant to be a tool for IT and LoB decision makers who are struggling to define a mobility policy for their organization.
This is the latest edition of the mobility policy guidebook that includes additional recommendations based on the changing needs of the workplace, including tablets, app stores and individually liable devices.
The Enterprise Mobility Foundation does not suggest your organization should adopt ALL these policies, but offers these ideas as “food for thought” as you develop the policy that best fits your company’s and employees’ needs.
