MobileFever - Enterprise Mobility Done Right

In my real life (not the virtual blogging one) – I have a real job at ClickSoftware which relates - guess what – to mobility! Of course, mobility stands for many things when you develop enterprise software: it's not just cool smartphones; laptops, toughbooks, rugged tablets, PDA's are a huge part of it, unlike the consumers world where 90% are smartphones and tablets.

The products I'm responsible serves users in the field, whether they are technicians, engineers, sales people, insurance agents, team leaders, supervisors, dispatchers, etc. It's a fascinating world which differs from the consumers one in the wider set of requirements around security, infrastructure, architecture, scalability, distribution, device management and more.

That's one of the reason why I started MobileFever (almost 2 years ago).

In short, it's a mobility blog focusing on enterprise mobility best practices as well as ongoing updates about our own activities, products, and services.

Few weeks ago we've reached our 100th post(!) so I figured it might be interesting to review some of popular stories here at the mobile spoon:

Tips and guides for successful enterprise mobility implementations:

The "How to select a mobile device" series was just the beginning! After that series, we added some other relevant tips and guides for you to use:

How to select a mobile device - Part #1 (Keyboard)
How to select a mobile device - Part #2 (Laptops vs. PDA's)

And of course, our famous "10 common mistakes to avoid when selecting and deploying a mobile solution" (which later on turned to a webinar, and other public sessions…):

MobileFever-10-Mobile-Mistakes-ClickSoftware

Mistake #1: Neglecting the Field Users
Mistake #2: Being the first to try new technologies
Mistake #3: Selecting the wrong mobile device
Mistake #4: Compromising on usability
Mistake #5: Settling on a hardcoded/customized solution
Mistake #6: Planning a tight project plan
Mistake #7: Creating an inconsistent mobile environment
Mistake #8: Expecting too much out of technology
Mistake #9: Forgetting the big picture
Mistake #10: Leaving security to the end

 


Mobility Trends:

We've learned that employees prefer smartphones over laptops, but what smartphones exactly? iPhones? Androids? Maybe BlackBerries?

So we've talked about trends in the smartphones world, trends in sales, OS market share, talking about enterprise companies switching from BlackBerry to iPhone, Android surpassing iPhone, and in general, tried to understand how the smartphones war between Google and Apple will affect the enterprise.

This topic always makes people argue, as it has become, for some reason, very sensitive. I believe we will relate to it again in the future as we see more and more players stepping into the enterprise world by starting with consumers (windows Phone 7, HP/Palm webOS).


Ongoing updates:

ClickMobile-Professional

We gave some updates about new releases of ClickMobile and the Mobility Suite by ClickSoftware. The latest one was about the release of ClickMobile Professional, the first Html5 / hybrid application for field service, using the ClickSoftware Mobility Suite as the infrastructure, compatible with iPhones, Android, iPads, and more. You can read about ClickMobile Professional in here.

We will continue to do so on a more frequent manner as we already have some great announcements waiting to be exposed real soon!
