IBM Report: Developing a Roadmap to Advance Enterprise Mobility
[PR Newswire] - ARMONK, N.Y., Aug. 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- A new report released by IBM (NYSE: IBM ) provides guidance for businesses on how to unlock the potential of enterprise mobility by empowering employees with the tools they need to make decisions, collaborate, transact and innovate in entirely new ways. The report, titled "The Individual Enterprise – How Mobility Redefines Business," developed by the IBM Institute for Business Value emphasizes how the power of analytics-driven mobile strategies can redefine business and how work gets done. While many organizations recognize the potential impact of mobile, few have the foundation in place to capitalize on the power of mobile and data analytics. Eighty-four percent of CIOs rate mobile solutions as a critical investment to get closer to customers1 and 94 percent of CMOs ranked mobile apps as crucial to their digital marketing plans.2 While the C-suite is considering mobile applications that are customer facing, the greater opportunity exists in the enterprise to impact the way people work, collaborate and innovate.
