Organisations need to change their internal mindsets in order to realise the full potential of an enterprise mobility deployment.
That's the assessmnet of IDC's latest research - Secret Of My Success: Australian Enterprise Mobility Case Studies.
The report found businesses transitioning into the "2nd Wave" in enterprise mobility deployment needed to re-engineer their fundamental business processes if they want to realise the full potential of a mobility strategy.
IDC's wireless and mobility associate analyst, Jerson Yau, said select Australian industries were leading the charge in enterprise mobility adoption as a necessary step toward evolving better business practices.
“Verticals like banking and finance, logistics and transportation, manufacturing, and services are moving beyond what is necessary - namely, mobilising email and changing their fundamental business processes," he said.
"They lead the early adoption of mobility solutions and have deployment experience with the players in the mobility ecosystem.”
In its report, IDC suggested that players in the enterprise mobility space communicate the benefits of mobility directly to organisational decision makers.
"As a best practice, they should be mindful of risk in each vertical, sub-mobilise an organisation's crucial adopters and position themselves as a "super vendor" – one who can do it all better than anyone else."
