Lundquists Five Simple Steps to Creating a Dynamic Mobile Enterprise

by Eric Lundquist
eWEEK's Eric Lundquist is at 2010 CTIA show in Las Vegas. It's the 25th anniversary of the show, which has turned, in his words, from an "it's like wired but slower, more complicated and more expensive" event to a showcase for the future of consumer and business digital communications and data flow. The business aspect of wireless has lagged the consumer in Lundquist's opinion. The carriers are partly responsible in that they pursued the consumer revenues. The business execs are also partly responsible in that they never envisioned an era when 75, 80 or maybe a 100 percent of their workers and customers would operate solely in the mobile environment. Not surprisingly, Ralph de la Vega, president and CEO of AT&T Mobility and Consumer Markets, stated in his keynote that by 2013, 75 percent of workers will be mobile workers. With that in mind, Lundquist looks at how IT managers can take five simple steps to turn their enterprises into dynamic mobile workplaces.
