Creating a Mobile Center of Excellence

Douglas Yokoyama, Vice President, Mobility Solutions, Asynchrony

Despite the rapid adoption of mobile, creating an effective enterprise mobility strategy hasnít been easy for many companies. Todayís CIO is tasked with trying to get their arms around the often conflicting, sometimes redundant, mobile projects that have sprung up within individual business units. Because funding and leadership for these initiatives usually lies within the business unit and most internal organizations are interested in quickly solving their specific business problems, most donít want the unnecessary overhead or involvement of IT.

At the same time, CIOs recognize that they need to develop an enterprise mobility strategy that can accommodate the requirements of employees as well as other members of the corporate ecosystem, such as partners, contractors and customers. Such a strategy factors in requirements for applications, policy control, application distribution and management and devices.

To accomplish this, many businesses are creating Mobile Centers of Excellence (MCOE). These COEs serve to provide a central, unifying function for leveraging mobility throughout the enterprise.

Innovation & Agility: How to Leverage Mobility to Prime Your Business Innovation Engine

Mark Panthofer, Executive Director - Strategic Marketing, NVISIA

Mobile technology creates new and very real opportunities to improve how you do business. The opportunities typically include more efficient internal processes for employees as well as new ways to improve your customer's experience - leading to increased revenues from new and more loyal customers. Meanwhile, mobile application development technologies that support the implementation of these innovative business solutions are still emerging with varying levels of maturity.

Key Implications for IT:

  • Increased pressure on IT to deliver mobile solutions based on a growing list of new ideas for business innovation
  • IT must choose from a wide variety of emerging technology approaches, weighing long-term benefits against near term delivery deadlines
  • New expectations based on shorter mobile delivery cycles - 30 to 90 days

We will share what we have learned from industry leading organizations, with a backdrop of "10x leadership" principles for developing an agile, business-driven approach that yields a sustainable mobile platform ready to support ongoing innovation.
