The increasing number of mobile development platforms has also added to the huge predicament considering the approach to be taken on how existing content management solutions (CMS) can be integrated with the new mobile development technologies. Industry professionals have been quick to understand the intricacy of the situation as it is more important to focus on the building an effective business that involves enabling customers and partners to develop great apps, rather than developing great apps on your own.
Adequate emphasis was given on meticulously executing the bringing together of the CMS and mobile delivery together. However, when questions arises as to ‘if mobile is possible without cloud or cloud is possible without mobile’; experts believes that such bold possibilities reinforces the prominence of these two technologies amongst users – targeted by enterprises. So, it has to be understood that even though these technologies weren’t entirely made in tandem, they do seem to strike a great rapport with each other.
It’s time to go Mobile!
Mobile devices has taken over the entire generation of PC users, who are seen to be making a seamless transition from desktop to these smart accessible devices on the go. But, what makes mobile devices so irresistible in spite of having limited amount of processing power than a desktop?
Well, mobile devices acts as a terminal that effectively lets you access information and computing power remotely, by acting as a terminal. Apart from allowing functionalities like voice call and web access using mobile devices like phones; mobile devices have also been increasingly used in the enterprise world to access data, documents and internal applications.
Similarly, since the advent of the mobile cloud, you are now empowered to stay accessible to everything, everywhere – all the time. In fact, the enterprise cloud is found to be playing significantly important role considering the introduction of 3G and 4G devices and the propagation of Wi-Fi – the key factors responsible for actually making mobile devices a more efficient tool for remote access.
Augment User’s Ability to Engage in Meaningful Collaboration
While there has been a growing chorus to acknowledge the contribution of the elements that join forces to augment the user’s ability to engage in meaningful collaboration, there is also an undercurrent of doubt – “Is the cloud trustworthy enough for sharing all our sensitive and confidential information?”
Well, this question of taking data to the mobile device opens up a plethora of possibilities where public cloud is pitted as one part of the solution, while hybridization with on-premise is kept on the loop. So, it is important that the concerns of enterprise users be addressed with an open mind and with solutions that are tested, efficient and scalable as part of a solid and flexible model.
While the platform serves as an effective bridge between workflow and content management that effortlessly connects to the backend for regulatory compliance and security purposes; it is for the clients to decide what balance of on-cloud or on-premise actually works for their individual business model.
Leverage Your Business Value with the Right Use of Mobile Technology
It is important that you leverage your business value with the right use of mobile technology because, besides coming with a prospective for new ways it is also a fact that preliminary potential often fails to transpire. So, mobile for enterprise is not just about just getting your documents, it is more about how the mobility has transformed the way we work.
Just think of the way photos are clicked and shared nowadays with just a few taps on your mobile device. In fact, the advent of smart mobile devices has made using a standard camera device an obsolete idea. Consequently, it has also eliminated the tedious process of downloading images to a desktop before making the necessary edits and cropping, sending them to a third party; and then publishing them online, etc.
So, don’t you think that you have now become as mobile as your technology? Well, it is mostly seen that mobile tends to stay at a safe distance when it comes to business efficiency; even though things are found to be gradually changing for the better. This has been commenced by adding TASKS to the functionality of the platform whereby users can now initiate workflow on a mobile device.
This opens up a whole new revolution in work collaboration where there are least holdups when performing a task at hand. In case, a user assigns a document for review to a co-worker, the platform allows that the worker besides accessing the task document will also be able to access all the related content required to perform the impending task. Also, it empowers the worker to approve the document after perform the actual task assigned and then move the task to the next person in the workflow. This is actually a great initiation towards allowing businesses to create full custom workflows, so as to add value to their business process.
Provide the Right Mobile Platform Rather Than Building Solutions for Entities
One of the prime priorities for CMS integration is to focus and create a niche for your business and enable customers and partners to develop great apps by providing the right platform, rather than offering all the solutions. This can be considered to be one of the most viable methods of ensuring maximum productivity of mobile for enterprise.
