The mobile imperative movement is here and it’s only going to intensify. According to IDC predictions, mobile workers will account for nearly three quarters (72.3%) of the total US workforce by 2020. The growing usage of mobile devices coupled with rising expectations from users in the workplace means that mobile is no longer a secondary thought in Service Management; it’s a core and vital capability for business success.
These trends are the power behind today’s announcement: EasyVista’s Mobile-First Strategy Embraced Worldwide as the Mandate to Mobilize Service Management Becomes Urgent
At the core of it, mobility is the imperative of service management in 2016, and it’s fueling growth and continued innovation of EasyVista, the only enterprise platform of its kind built for the mobile era.
Why are IT Leaders Embracing Mobility?
With both the opportunities and challenges brought on by IoT and BYOD trends, the importance of mobile is not lost on the IT department. In fact, we’ve seen that mobile-first is becoming a major determining factor in Service Management vendor selection. IT specialists are now looking for systems that put mobility at the forefront in order to meet users’ needs on the devices they use day in and day out. The recent “2016 Trends in Enterprise Mobility” Report from 451 Research further explains:
“More IT decision-makers are thinking mobile-first. Our 2016 Trends in Enterprise Mobility survey found that for the first time, 40% more companies are planning to prioritize the mobilization of general business apps over the next two years than those just prioritizing mobilizing field and sales teams. IT leaders need to look for vendors that are mobile-first ready."
