Mobile is here. And enterprise mobile solutions aren't just about a smartphone app.
Only a small part of the effort in supporting enterprise mobility is visible on smart devices. The underlying applications and architecture dealing with data synchronization, app management, security, integration, analytics, and other enterprise mobile challenges deliver the majority of the value. That's why your infrastructure and strategy matter.
Mobility is disrupting and reshaping business models.
According to an IBM Institute for Business Value and Oxford Economics study in 2014, 58% of businesses see that mobile reduces barriers to entry - but businesses also see a 69% increase in competition and 41% see the competition coming from outside their industry. And from a 4Q 2013 study by the same two groups, only 15% of businesses have a strategy in place today for mobile solutions.
Why IBM Power Systems for mobile solutions?
IBM and Power Systems take a DevOps approach to help ensure that mobile delivers value and reduces barriers to entry giving you the edge over competition.
IBM and our Business Partners can help you:
In order to provide true value, mobile access needs to be integrated into existing, core Systems of Record such as database, ERP and CRM applications. Without the connection to enterprise data and core business systems a mobile user is just reading static data – history. Without this integration, they won’t derive the real value that the business has to offer through an improved user experience and enhanced interaction.
Enabling this integration between existing Systems of Record and a mobile System of Engagement requires an infrastructure designed to meet enterprise mobile challenges.
