Dear Readers,

Greetings from Swan Solutions!

In 2015, we saw that the mobile-first concept has gained momentum. It was accepted as the most disruptive factor last year.

In our interaction with clients, we've noticed that the concept of mobility is no longer a luxury but a top priority for most enterprises. An enterprise user is as updated as a consumer in terms of adoption of technologies, and this is working in favor of enterprises. Ensuring data access through mobility keeps them equipped to take quick decisions based on real time data.

This year of tried-and-tested implementations has shown us that, with the right solution provider, you can review security at the data, application, device, and network levels on a regular basis- on hardware, software, in the cloud or on-premises. My two cents - don't lag behind. Now is the time to update your business environment.

Why Today's Enterprise Must Be Mobile

Why Today's Enterprise Must Be Mobile

Mobile technologies have become an integral part of an enterprise. The industry has recognized the value of enabling their employees to work anytime, anywhere through its use. Businesses today are at the cusp of realizing the immense potential of mobility.

The enterprise-mobile journey isn't a new one. It started a few years ago, when they enabled traditional email applications and the occasional custom mobile app. Today, there is a new generation of mobile applications and capabilities that enable enterprise giants as well as SMEs to reimagine their entire business process.

If you take a look around, you'll observe that most successful organizations are ones that have redefined their business processes using a mobile-first approach, i.e. designing apps and processes primarily for mobile devices and then for the desktop. This has resulted in increased efficiency, high productivity and cost reductions.

It is easy to get tricked into believing that BYOD is your goal, but this shouldn't be your end result. The true end goal of the mobile-first enterprise is security, while enabling access to corporate data from personal devices. The enterprise must also ensure that it is focusing on applications and corresponding business data in its infrastructure to efficiently implement a mobility strategy. Investing in the right infrastructure can help a long way by simplifying the experience of building enterprise mobile applications.

To keep your mobile strategy running smooth, find a vendor who provides a customizable solution to provide and manage devices and infrastructure to deliver productivity, security and operational efficiency. It is crucial to remember that these services should complement your existing mobile strategy and meet the needs of your employees.

Expert Tips
Data Encryption

As more employees use smartphones and tablets to access data, it becomes imperative to secure your mobility strategy. Encryption is the most effective form of data security. However, it is surprising to see that some enterprises skip this step. Leaving company data unencrypted on the company network is like leaving your doors unlocked - you become an easy target. Business managers should speak to their IT departments or vendors about the best encryption for their networks and devices, and implement it when different devices are being used to access corporate data on the enterprise network.
