Digital Transformation

IDC Opinion

Digital transformation success depends on three factors; employees, business operations and IT management process. Success depends on all three of these aspects. For businesses to transform how their workers do their jobs with mobility, they must address key challenges around mobile computing risk, device capabilities, and form-factor selection, as well as the underlying provisioning and management of mobile end-user technology.

To help enable digital transformation, there are three pillars of enterprise mobile technology that organizations must consider when selecting a mobile platform. These are:

  • Overall security
  • Solution breadth
  • IT management capabilities balanced with user experience

IDC sees Android as a strategic platform that addresses each pillar with a secure mobile OS, a diverse ecosystem of OEM and software partners, and underlying management capabilities around devices, applications and balanced user/corporate experience.

IDC recommends that enterprises consider Android as they take on each pillar of enterprise mobility technology adoption within the context of their own employee base, IT infrastructure, and digital transformation ambitions.
