"Progressive IT departments are reinventing themselves from a command and control perspective as mobility is the dominant force shaping the IT landscape," said Barbara Nelson, chief technology officer at iPass. "There are measurable gains to be realized by implementing technology that mobilizes a workforce and enables IT to regain security and control."
"Mobile policy is a critical element of a successful mobile strategy as it challenges IT leaders to think about the landscape of devices needing support and how the capabilities of these platforms differ," said Maribel Lopez, principal of Lopez Research. "As a result IT departments should consider the various security, support and cost issues associated with making mobile work, as it provides IT with a great hook into business units to help create strategic value by mobilizing business processes -- the Holy Grail of mobility."
