Over the last few years, that smartphone in your pocket has become an extremely useful device – to the “Don’t leave home without it” point. The advancement in mobile technology, networks and the availability of applications has enabled a progressive on the go behavior.
But I submit to you that mobility and its uses have only begun to scratch the surface when it comes to enterprise applications, the ones that fulfill a set of useful business functions. There are organizations emerging as leaders in early adoption with innovative set of features – for example: Chase Bank has an application which allows customers to take a picture of a check using their iPhone’s camera and have it deposited to their account. There are several other applications, which blend in enterprise application functions with mobile device features quite nicely. To me the whole idea of writing a check is obsolete but I am sure Chase and other banks will do a lot more to change consumer behavior over the next few years.
Over the next several years, mobility will change drastically – the technology evolution in smart devices, the growth of tablets and increased affordability will allow user adoption of smart devices to exceed feature phones globally…. But the main advancement will be in usability and availability of applications, which enable end-to-end business processes on the go!
