Enterprise mobility is no more a buzz word, especially for those who are in business, but have you ever thought how someone can create/implement enterprise mobility in their business.
Steps to create an invincible enterprise mobility strategy:
Step 1: Define your business objectives
This is the first and foremost thing while building a peerless enterprise mobility strategy. It includes certain measures of your business like how employees and clients interface with your business, how to enhance the interactions, how to determine new opportunities for the betterment of your business, do the procedures need to be upgraded or restructured, etc.
Step 2: Select the right experience
The first is mobile web and another is mobile app. Though, both have different pros and cons, but an entrepreneur has to choose the one having more pros and less cons in the context of his/her business.
Step 3: Establish a successful BYOD plan
BYOD refers to Bring Your Own Device which is trending. It’s becoming increasingly preferable in today’s technological landscape to utilize employees’ devices for work purposes.
Major aspects to include in BYOD plan:
a) Define the policy: It includes the parameters and guidelines of the BYO plan which is the combo of BYOA (Bring Your Own App), BYOT (Bring Your Own Technology) and BYON (Bring Your Own Network).
b) Assign the devices allowed: It is the task of administrator to specify certain devices and operating systems for work purposes.
c) Take industry standards into consideration: In order to let employees utilize their own devices for business tasks, it’s crucial to follow some guidelines of your business-sector and maintain those standards.
d) Details of ownership: Employees must understand the intellectual property of your business, i.e. what data is for individual and what belongs to the company/business.
e) Security: To prevent data from being stolen, lost or being affected by the infiltration of individual devices, various security plans have to be implemented like Encryption, OpenID, Digital Signature, Identity Provisioning, etc.
Step 4: Use secure APIs to deliver a seamless user experience
Make sure that the APIs, employees are using on their devices, must be secure as APIs encapsulate back-end information systems and allow them to be leveraged through front-end mobile applications and during this process, hackers may get a chance to attack and exploit.
Step 5: Manage information
Information management ensures that your employees have access to the information they need while protecting your company’s information.
Step 6: End-to-end control
It simply determines the security strategy of your business. Without comprehensive security measures, the data protection will be at stake.
Step 7: Authorize your business departments locally to rule mobility globally
Every individual’s rights and responsibilities must be defined properly, if you want good enterprise mobility solutions for your business. It can dramatically reduce the complexities of your business.
These are the seven effective steps every entrepreneur must know and implement in their business for global recognition and better product/service delivery.
