Is there a certain device capability, such as the ability to capture mobile signatures or remotely wipe a device, that is so important to your mobile workflow that it has influenced your enterprise mobility strategy?
When it comes to making decisions about your organization’s enterprise mobility strategy, there are a few inescapable themes:
- Allowing people to use their own devices vs. having to use company-supplied devices
- Using browser-based vs. native applications
- Optimizing your apps for smart phones vs. tablets
- Whether or not to include or exclude a particular mobile platform.
That businesses are committing resources to create and execute a mobile strategy is a given. The permutations of approaches to mobile strategies are endless, and the reasons behind them are varied and nuanced.
These approaches and their justifications are well understood from a generic enterprise perspective, but what are the common themes of an Oracle customer’s mobile strategy? How does it vary from that of the marketplace as a whole?
If one thing is clear, it is that Oracle customers want to do big things with mobility.
As such, Oracle has created a survey to capture and understand enterprise mobility from an incredibly important perspective, that of an Oracle customer.
We want to know what our customers are doing now, what you plan to do in the near future, and most importantly, what are the key influences to your strategy -- employee engagement, security, cost, or something we have yet to hear about.
Please take our enterprise mobility survey. The survey will remain open until March 28, and will take about 15 minutes to complete. The survey also includes a follow-up option to become more involved in Oracle applications research.
