A better way to go mobile

A Better Way To Go Mobile – Part 6

Mobility is no longer an option or differentiator – it is now necessity!

Software applications are competing on the basis of their ability to support mobility.


Practically speaking, we’re all carrying smartphone.  Which means today, the population is almost always connected to one another, able to interact, transact and obtain nearly any information they desire.  The ramifications for businesses is as great as it is for individuals.  The consumer has been empowered in ways that we hard to imagine just a decade ago.  And, with 5-G beginning to roll-out, with transmission speeds that dwarf 4-G, the possibility are as profound as the imagination.


Here are some predictions about mobile use both amongst consumers and workers:

By the year 2022, around 43% of the total global workforce will be mobile savvy.

By the end of 2018, 79% of total global internet use will be on mobile devices.

66% of Americans now own a smartphone with 200 million number of users across all states.

90% IT decision makers hold the view that mobility helps in business growth, enhance productivity, customer engagement & competitiveness.

Technology is a sword that cuts both ways, across nearly all industries, fields of business and areas of life.  Those who are best equipped to leverage mobility will do the cutting.  Those who fall behind will feel the sword!


When it comes to business’s needs to collect, share, manage and use data to conduct business and serve customers, it has become mission critical to incorporate mobility.  The form factor, the interface, functionality and ability to support business processes must extend to mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets.   Organization staff and management demand ubiquitous access with the ability to perform their jobs from any locations, without being compelled to carry “hardware.”
