New ways to live and to work
There are about 6 billion mobile devices in the world today, most of which are smart devices. We download more than 70 billion mobile applications every year. 77% of companies all over the world provide their staff with mobile devices and 66% already use mobile applications for their business.
Whether we’re just customers, consumers or employees, we’ve all taken smartphones and tablets totally on board by now. We use them everywhere and all the time in our private lives, because they’re easy and very effective: they help us organise our time, relationships and activities. And we expect the same experience when we go to work: straightforward and easy!
More than 4 out of 10 employees are mobile nowadays Businesses have been caught by the huge, global wave that is the concept of mobile internet, thanks to its democratisation. Employees arrive at the office with their devices and also want to use them for work, the so-called Bring Your Own Device phenomenon. IT departments must deal with this and are seeking appropriate solutions.
Moreover, business people have lots of new ideas for mobile applications. It all started with the marketing departments who very quickly realised the potential of mobile internet when it came to communication, but today this also extends to other business services that aim to simplify and optimise the work on a day to day basis.
The benefits of the mobile phone lie more concretely in increased productivity, cost reduction, process optimisation, i.e. increased effectiveness, agility and flexibility, reduced time-to-market and improved brand image.
IT is mainly looking for feasible solutions that provide guarantees with regard to secure and controlled data access, that are easy to manage, durable and easy to integrate.
Let’s not forget how appealing these new technologies are in terms of attracting young talent that is particularly sensitive to this new way of working and to these tools.
