Workflow management and process organization and adjustment in a business environment which is predominantly characterized by globalization and mobility, employees of the social media generation, and at the same time wide-spread criminal activities on all networks – this is what makes life and work for all stakeholders like senior management, compliance officers, chief information officers and chief information security officers harder to cope with.
The taskings become even greater challenges as an outcome of these developments:
More than 80% of all business data is being created by or handled on mobile devices today
The total volume of mobile data in 2011 is expected to be 3,67 Exabyte (quintillion bytes)
Wireless data grow at a rate of at least 100% annualy
At present the number of mobile connected devices is about 6 billion, expected to double to approximately 12 billion by 2020
A nine to ten digit number of endpoint devices is waiting to get connected wireless by M2M (Machine-to-Machine) applications
Those numbers and rates keep growing and the reason for the enormous momentum behind this self-explaining: business processes are going mobile and are gaining speed. Even if in your business segment mobile communication is being viewed as a useful tool, it may have become vital for your business model by tomorrow. Mobile business models require clearly defined processes with priority on both, profitability and business security.
Mobility is not a means of its own: You need to increase efficiency and speed without trade-offs regarding your required levels of security and transparency. This is the ultimate reason why your mobile business processes must not come off the shelf or straight from the book – they have to be customized and adapted to your specific needs, in order to allow their successful operation in your business.
