Scaling the introduction of mobile business applications to an organization's iPad users is both critically important and challenging, particularly as scale allows the organization to truly improve operational efficiencies and topline growth. As expected, an organization will face challenges that are both labor-intensive and time-intensive when enabling data access and protection for hundreds (or even thousands) of iPad workers. This fundamental requirement-scale-can be cost-prohibitive without the proper tools. Select an EMM platform that allows mobility to be scaled to thousands of iPads and mobile users, for multiple business applications, over a geographically dispersed data network-while protecting mobile data.
Only after an IT organization has laid the foundational requirements of security, connectivity, personalization, integration and scale will they be able to deliver tangible business value, increase topline growth and improve operational efficiencies with devices such as the iPad.
By selecting the right EMM platform, the IT organization is able to ensure integrity, confidentiality and authenticity of all corporate data, as well as enable secure, real-time access to business application data and IT services. The IT organization is also able to configure iPads appropriately for disparate users, seamlessly integrate the iPad into the enterprise and meet all of these requirements on a large-scale iPad deployment.
