All throughout an organization, there’s a lot of data being passed around, and sometimes it makes it to the people who need it, but many companies are putting their faith in the luck that information gets to where it needs to be. Employees need to use their company’s information, from a variety of sources. And now they’re are not just seeking that information from their desktops, since mobile devices have become some people’s preference.
Speed of Now
Companies have few options, one of which is to combine different applications together in a common interface. The workflow of trying to open multiple applications on a mobile device to accomplish a simple task just isn’t acceptable. Rather, it is important to have an application that can be deployed to the workforce, but still accessible from multiple data sources. This empowers the mobile worker to make decisions at the speed of now.
Not to Fear
While this may cause trepidation in some IT organizations, the capability is well within the technology available today. It is possible to deploy HTML5 applications on mobile devices and have those mobile devices communicate to enterprise applications with standard messaging protocols, all flowing from standard enterprise applications in a secure and easy manner. This means the intellectual property of the organization can quickly and easily be deployed to those in the field.
Security and management of this intellectual property needs to be managed. By creating an environment where applications can be loaded and unloaded from a worker’s mobile device, the security of the organization can be assured. TIBCO’s Silver Mobile allows composite applications to be delivered to the mobile worker on his or her own device, empowering employees to make actionable decisions in the moment.
