Enterprise Mobility

Seamless access to business processes – anywhere, anytime.

Mobilization of business processes
Enterprise Mobility is much more than just accessing a corporate email account from your mobile device. It defines a strategy to enable processes and applications for mobile use, so that they can be used at any time and from any location. This flexibility enables companies to develop new business opportunities and distribution channels and optimize their processes. To achieve this, in addition to the use of mobile devices, the corresponding infrastructure and services with which the business processes can be used must be provided.
