Mobility Budgets & Spending Shifts

November 30, 2012

Although IT budgets remain mostly flat, enterprises continue to increase mobility spending, driven largely by the changing requirements and capabilities of mobile devices. More companies are successfully adopting consumer-oriented devices, through combinations of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policies, shifting employee requirements, and increasing tablet use. More organizations use app-centric iOS and Android devices, which require new infrastructure, including more densely engineered Wireless Local Area Networks (WLANs), new mobile app development, and new mobile security policies. The increased spending, however, doesn’t necessarily correlate with positive returns; the manner in which a company approaches mobility does. Simply deploying all the right technologies for this new paradigm of consumer-oriented mobility is no longer sufficient. Companies must develop tailored, informed and comprehensive strategies to correctly leverage the requirements of their industry, size and culture.
