While enterprise mobility may have an array of benefits to offer, on the other hand, CIOs and managers should not be reluctant enough to take into account some of the mistakes that are practiced quite frequently in the industry, such as:
- Cost Management: One of the basic goals of enterprise mobility is to help you with speedy accomplishment of the given project without missing the location/regional difference between on-field and on-base employees. However, the entire process of communication should be accomplished seamlessly, without affecting expenditure. Failure with cost management may defeat the purpose. It has been found that one in every 50 companies suffers the consequence of wrongful cost management and imposes unwanted financial burden on the organization.
- Risking Security, using Third-party Apps: One of the recent surveys has pointed out that in 90% cases, organizations that champion enterprise mobility, makes third party app an integral part of EMM. While turnkey solution providing companies find such practices extremely helpful for business, on the other hand, the risk of security breach increases remarkably.
- BYOD Policy – Cool is great but don’t ignore reviewing: In the new year, companies may make their BYOD policy less stringent but regular reviewing is necessary when it comes to finding out whether or not the employees are downloading or using any malicious app or service. Regular training and keeping a list of services that may drive a device at the brink of security breach, should be kept handy and must be regularly updated.
- Communication Breakdown: Enterprise mobility is not all about attending a project and keep working on it no matter which location your employees are at. The term mobility provides a great deal of attention to communication as well. However, employees, despite having the facilities of enterprise mobility, fail to communicate. It leads to misguided understanding of client’s requirement, the developmental effort becomes a wastage and ultimately puts additional pressure over the entire workforce, without adding anything to the constructive side.
