Top 5 lessons for Mobility Beginners


I’ve always wanted to help companies implement and embrace mobility, however, I never had the chance to do so. I wish that I had someone to inform me that mobility was much more than a carrier and a device when starting off, so here they are:

About three years ago, I was asked to develop a pilot program that would become a national case study in mobile healthcare. Like other pilots, one of my major goals was to quickly bring this solution to the market.

Here are the top five lessons that I learned along the way:

1. The Bring Your Own Device ( BYOD) vs. corporate-owned devices discussion needs to occur early on in the process because it will impact the entire plan. A company should take into account the legal liability of going with BYOD. For example, corporate-owned devices are easier to manage if they are lost and sensitive company information needs to be immediately wiped and/or tracked. If cost is a major driving factor, the company needs to make sure to analyze current and future BYOD device reimbursement costs. You can often work with your partners to provide a corporate owned device for the same cost as your current reimbursement cost.

2. To identify dependencies, which can cripple progress across your pilot or implementation, make sure to assess the following on a regular basis:

  • Hardware
  • Connectivity
  • Application development
  •  Master data management (MDM)
  • Device lifecycle
