The workforce is going mobile. According to Forrester, more than half of employees carry at least three
devices for work. And many are bringing their own smartphones, tablets, and other devices to work, a
phenomenon that’s grown so popular it now has its own acronym—Bring Your Own Device (BYOD).
So it comes as no surprise that, according a survey by SpiceWorks, 60% of small and medium businesses are
considering using a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) as part of their BYOD strategy. Many of these organizations
are relying on VMware® Horizon View™ (formerly VMware View), because it enables organizations to implement a
VDI infrastructure that reduces operational costs, enhances security and supports a mobile workforce.

Mobile applications have swept across geographic boundaries, cultures, and enterprises faster than any previous technology innovation.
Consumers around the world use them to find their way when they travel by car and verify flight details when they travel by air. They check bank balances and sports scores, reserve theater tickets and dining reservations, shop online, pay bills, download entertainment, and participate in dozens of other everyday activities—using convenient portable devices like smart phones and tablets.
The demand for this kind of convenience has spilled over into the world of work as well, and employees today expect to use their mobile devices to check email, participate in meetings, access files—even use enterprise applications, like ERP and CRM, that drive business processes.
The year 2011 ended with a staggering 5.9 billion mobile phone subscriptions, especially significant considering that the total world population is around 7.011 billion. Of course, a direct comparison is not fair since many people have multiple subscriptions, but it represents a window into the pervasiveness of these devices and how they are an integral part of people’s lives today. For enterprises, this also represents the impending end to the old computing era and the emergence of the mobile worker.
Enabling mobility in the workplace is a top-of-mind goal for decision-makers within every organization. This necessity is brought about by the consumerization of IT and the requirement to develop policies to manage the “bring-your-own-device” (BYOD) trend.
There is a remarkable transformation in how people access systems and information. Mobile devices are rapidly overtaking computers as the primary information consumption means. In a recent report, The Economist has projected a growth in the number of mobile devices to reach 10 billion by 2020 and the shipment of mobile devices to be almost two times that of laptops and PCs as early as 2013.
The rapid pace of mobile apps demands new approaches to functional testing. To bring high-quality software to market quickly, your organization needs a strategy that moves you beyond the limitations of testing conducted on devices you manage in an internal lab. This paper outlines five strategic steps to get you there today-and move your processes into the era of the app.
Mobility services are frequently being positioned as part of broader application transformation offerings, enabling enterprises to support the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) approach, with the development of enterprise app stores and the ability to leverage personal devices for business functions.
This white paper describes software and services that accelerate and simplify the creation of internally developed or “in-house” enterprise mobile applications. It also describes how to deploy and manage these mobile apps on both company-provided and “bring-your-own” smartphones and tablet computers. Solving the complete mobile app lifecycle means transforming enterprise apps for multiscreen devices; facilitating design, testing, security, performance, management, and compliance to reach new customers and employee expectations.

This report, which is the vision report of the mobile app development playbook for application development and delivery (AD&D) professionals, focuses on the changes application developers need to understand if they want to build modern applications that deliver contextual customer experiences.
Smartphones and tablets are game changers for engagement because people carry them everywhere they go. Your customers and partners and employees have perpetual access to the vast resources of the Internet — and hopefully your mobile app as well — in the key moments of their day. In interviews with more than 100 mobile innovators, we have found four places where mobile engagement transforms services and processes: customer engagement, process acceleration, employee productivity, and new business services. Even at this early stage of development, you can see positive impacts of mobile engagement in apps from General Electric, Trane, and Uber Technologies. We close with a simple framework for prioritizing which apps and features people will actually use based how useful and convenient they are.
By 2014, smartphones and tablets will put power in the pockets of a billion global consumers, including your employees and partners and customers. However, mobile is not simply another device for IT to support with a shrunken website or a screen-scraped application. Rather, mobile is the visible manifestation of a much broader shift to systems of engagement that marry physical context and digital intelligence to deliver service directly into a person's hands. This shift will add value and take cost out of every business service, workflow process, and business application. But mobile engagement will also require wholesale changes to your app design, service delivery, IT skills, technology assets, and even your business model. This report lays out a vision for mobile engagement and introduces the strategic elements developed further in The CIO's Mobile Engagement playbook.
Successful mobile apps, especially enterprise mobile apps, typically need to interact with a well-architected set of back-end services, but most mobile app developers are more skilled at client-side front-end development. Enter mobile back-end-as-a-service (BaaS), a new set of hosted platforms that addresses the gap between front-end development proficiency and back-end infrastructure requirements. Enterprise-class back-end-as-a-service addresses scalability while providing an integration platform into existing enterprise services. Use this research as your guidebook to navigating the emerging BaaS landscape.
