Mobile Strategy- what Mobile Strategy?

In a recent study published CIO’s have ranked Mobility as a priority No 2 in 2017. I find it slightly disturbing only 54% of companies have a mobile strategy in place yet only 34 % have any in-house mobile development skills. in a connected world I would have expected the figures to be higher and of more importance to organisations today. Especially as the consumer usage is on the up see below;

Is Mobility hustling the human race up the road to the ‘better mousetrap’

Interesting breakdown of connectivity around the World by Device.

Mobile devices are taking over our way of life- more than half the World is connected via a device of some means.
Ralph Waldo Emmerson once said ‘Advertising was the whip that hustles humanity up the road to the better mousetrap’. Could this/is this the same for the mobile of the future and the more informed connected World we embrace? Anybody got any cheese!

Managed Mobility – In-house or Outsource?

Managed Mobility as a Service- Many organisations today face the challenge of managing mobility in house due to lack of in house development capability and experienced resources coupled with domain knowledge restrict their ability to fulfill this requirement. Many organizations do wish to outsource the management of all of their mobility functions in order to focus instead on their core

On of the ways forward is to manage the service externally through a vendor who can supply an ‘end to end’ service proposition.
