Mobility adds an interesting new wrinkle to the management of sensitive data, especially in highly regulated industries like healthcare. Mobility makes data portable and enables that data to travel anywhere at any time, which means ensuring the security of data accessed from mobile devices is paramount to all mobile initiatives.
Mobile is more than a distraction; it’s becoming ubiquitous across industries ranging from smart grids that run on mobile technology to farms run on data from mobile sensors. Regardless of what business you’re in, mobile will touch the way you work and do business.

The bulk of our screen time is shifting to mobile devices. It’s gone from laptops and desktops to smartphones and tablets. In the midst of this change, companies need to consider the differences in developing for on-the-go devices as opposed to those used at a desk.
Embrace the change. Mobile is here to stay. Your 14-year-old niece is using her Samsung Galaxy to post photos of her “nail art” on Instagram and your family is using an iPad to stay connected via Facebook. Meanwhile, your customers are using their smartphones to search for local services while on the subway, tweeting you for customer support while waiting to get their oil changed and getting app recommendations from Apps for Execs during a lackluster conference call.
