The Silicon Review
Traditional endpoints such as desktops and laptops still hold an important place in most enterprises’ IT environments. However, mobile devices continue to proliferate at an astounding rate; almost all employees have their own mobile devices and most enterprises have bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policies to capitalize on this. Enterprise Mobility Management allows your enterprise to enjoy the benefits of BYOD policies—increased productivity and reduced technology overhead—with more confidence. Without the benefits of enterprise mobility management, you could face significant trouble handling the issues with your BYOD remote devices. Of all the benefits of enterprise mobility management, cybersecurity remains perhaps the most significant. Every new connected device adds another node in your digital perimeter; in turn, each new node adds another attack vector to attract hackers. With good EMM, you can deploy a consistent level of cybersecurity across all connected devices.

Smart Mobile programs evaluate your business goals and operational challenges to mitigate needless and costly technology obsolescence. An international grocery retailer was implementing corporate-owned and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) initiatives to rapidly expand mobile’s footprint across 2,000 retail locations. However, the complexity of its mobile environment, especially the Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) platform, held challenges for the company’s U.S.-based IT team. In addition, as mobile scaled, support quickly became inadequate. As a result, the food retailer wanted to delegate responsibility for training, end-user support, management and depot services for its mobile users’ 10,000 devices. They needed immediate support of their hybrid mobile environment. This retailer wanted to formulate a long-term strategy to drive mobile adoption across its global operation. The IT team required deeper knowledge of mobile application configuration and management. Stratix took a holistic approach to resolving the international grocery retailer’s planning, deployment and support challenges. Stratix successfully built and activated a support infrastructure to manage the international grocer’s 10,000 mobile users in less than three weeks.
