With increasing workloads and demand for real time access to information; Enterprise Mobility is gaining more traction in the business processes. With more employees working out of the office and using mobile devices and cloud services to perform business tasks, enterprise mobility is becoming the new trend.
According to industry experts, the enterprise mobility ecosystem is being restructured by digital transformation. Mobility adoption among Asia/Pacific organizations continues to gain steady traction, with most businesses already having some form of basic mobility services in place. These organizations are now looking to leverage mobility to drive a more engaging and personal user experience.
The India enterprise mobility market is expected to grow from $1.7 billion in 2015 to $2.3 billion in 2017. This radical growth is due to the explosion of smartphone users in India and the time they spend on the internet.
As per a recent study, the scope for companies in India to implement wide-scale mobility solutions, with only 17% of respondent enterprises currently being assessed as mature in their adoption of Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) technology. The Enterprise Mobility Maturity Index (EMMI) can also be used as a tool to help Indian companies identify the gaps in their mobility adoption, and address these gaps to emerge as a mobile-first organisation.
Today, organisations are focussing more on enterprise mobility as they are seeing it as a tool for boosting productivity and efficiency of the organisation as a whole as well as of its employees. This has largely pushed enterprises to look for experts who can meet this demand, thereby, leading to a plethora of opportunities for product firms in enterprise mobility area.
Undoubtedly, enterprise mobility is the new normal in the field operations, and hence Indian enterprises must look beyond basic enterprise app management by truly integrating identity, application and enterprise mobility management to stay relevant. Industry experts expect that the mobility work forces will increase over the coming years. Accordingly, they also expect an increase in their IT budgets and believe that the wearable technology, big data, analytics and IoT will provide best ROI in the next 4-5 years. Enterprise app stores are promising greater control over the apps used by employees, better control over software expenditures and greater negotiating leverage with app vendors.
With the ever-growing market and overwhelming amount of available data enterprise mobility is great opportunity that will pave way for Digital India. Along with cloud computing, enterprise mobility will have huge potential and may become one of the highest sources of revenue in coming years.
