Looking to improve your enterprise mobility strategy? A recent piece from Mobility Management Solutions Review may be exactly what you need.

We’re going to go ahead and assume that you have the first two recommendations–decide which devices (iOS, Android, etc.) you’ll support, and establish ownership of those devices–done already. While important for companies that are just starting down the enterprise mobility path, most companies do at least have these basic frameworks in place.

What’s left are three recommendations that we think any organization could benefit from:

  1. Outline a BYOD policy: Let’s face it: with so many devices in use at home and in the workplace today, it’s essential to have a plan for employee-owned devices at work. Because most employees won’t stand for an MDM solution on their own devices, you need to have specific policies in place that dictate how and when outside devices can be used. A good policy is key to preventing problems before they occur.
  2. Design a remote work policy: Likewise, given that the goal of enterprise mobility is to make workers more productive, you need to think hard about what work you’ll allow employees to do remotely, and how. Consider your specific industry’s limitations when making these decisions; a telehealth company that routinely handles PII will have very different rules than a tech startup that isn’t bound by HIPAA.
  3. Learn the landscape, and decide what you need: EMM and MDM and UEM, oh my! There are a number of different approaches to enterprise mobility–and they’ve all evolved over time. We discussed this on our blog a while back, and taking the time to learn the pros and cons of each approach will help ensure that you match your solution to mobility to your needs.

If all of these recommendations sound familiar to you, it’s because they’re all steps that we recommend companies take as they make the transition towards being more mature with regard to enterprise mobility. You don’t have to have everything figured out, but ensuring you have the proper strategic framework in place will go a long way towards helping things run more smoothly into the future.

Regardless of exactly which devices you’d like to support or what your remote work policy looks like, all organizations can benefit from an enterprise app store-focused approach that empowers employees and makes it easy to get the right apps in the hands of those who need them.
