ABSTRACT:

Most companies do not manage their mobile estate as if it were an asset and, therefore, miss out not only on opportunities to save costs, but also on the benefits which a strategic approach to mobile management can bring about.

However, Ovum believes that the status quo is about to change. This is due to three crucial developments:

  1. The current economic climate has created a business imperative
  2. Suppliers are beginning to offer more comprehensive, more global managed mobility services
  3. The perception of the handset as a device has changed

In this paper, Ovum will offer a short guide for enterprises as they establish and then continue to evolve their managed mobility strategies. We will investigate:

  • The barriers to managing mobility and the potential benefits firms can realize from taking a more global, coordinated approach
  • The components of a complete managed mobility service, and which might create the most value for firms with differing requirements
  • How an enterprise can navigate the complex world of potential managed mobility partners, including specialists, systems integrators, and carriers
  • Best practices with respect to how a business should manage an ongoing relationship with its mobility partners
