There are many challenges you need to address to support Enterprise Mobility, but let’s break it down to four groups:
- Device Management
- Apps Management
Establish a group of representatives from your whole organization that meet regularly and discuss how Mobile can affect business. In many regards, this is the start of you creating a Digital Governance Group: a single team who drives how digital technology can be adopted.
You now have hundreds or thousands of devices in your organization. How are you going to manage them all? Mobile Device Management solutions such as MobileIron, MaaS360, AirWatch and even Good provide for comprehensive device management as well as a slew of additional services.
Do you really want all those rogue BYOD SmartPhones and Tablets on your network? Nah, I didn’t think so. Set up a wireless network just for devices. This is similar in concept to a Guest Network but just for mobile devices such as Smartphones and Tablets.
You will create your own private apps and want to distribute approved apps from public stores such as Google Play and iTunes App Store. Take the stress of this work out of your life by leveraging a Mobile Enterprise App Store. Typically the MDM vendors will have one. You can even leverage app encapsulation services to apply app level security on a device.
