While the enterprise mobile space got off to a slow start (we’ve been talking about it for more than 2 years), the early adopters are now rushing along. The result is an exciting list of solutions that have already been delivered.
These enterprise mobile solutions include:
- Arup (UK) providing mobile access to their projects database (and much more).
- Aviva (UK) running an internal competition for staff to develop mobile solutions.
- Logan City Council (Australia) revolutionising how field staff work through the use of mobile devices.
- UK Parliament (Australia) providing a mobile intranet for their MPs.
- Queensland University of Technology (Australia) creating a mobile intranet for staff and students.
- Lafarge (France) delivering a solution for senior executives at their yearly off-site strategy session.
- City of Malmo (Sweden) creating a responsive design for their intranet that works across a range of devices.
- Dutch Senate (The Netherlands) saving €100,000 in the first year by replacing paper with an iPad.
- Judge (USA) producing a mobile interface to their core business system, their CRM.
- Richard Porter Chamberlain (UK) providing mobile access to their enterprise systems.
- Nordstrom (USA) replacing point-of-sale tills with iPhones.
- Third-party vendors providing mobile SharePoint solutions, and other mobile-enabled enterprise apps.
(And these are just some of the case studies we have screenshots and details for.)
This list shows the diversity of activities and approaches that organisations are taking. Different groups of users are being targeted, and very different solutions are being delivered. What will be coming next?
