By Digital News Asia March 19, 2013

- Upcoming Enterprise Mobility Conference to highlight best practices in the marketplace
MOBILITY is at the heart of transformation for many organizations as they strive to change the way they operate and how the business is done.
While it has risen up to top of the agenda for many chief information officers (CIOs) and is now an intrinsic part of their ICT roadmap, it remains a serious challenge and some have found their mobility journey to be extremely daunting.
However, CIOs continue to invest heavily in mobility technologies to achieve some of their core business goals. IDC expects the APeJ (Asia Pacific excluding Japan) enterprise mobility market to reach US$6.9 billion in 2013, with an annual growth rate of 29%.
Adrian Dominic Ho, principal, Telecom Practice, Mobility Lead at IDC Asia/Pacific, noted that the key to a successful enterprise mobility strategy is for organizations to know exactly what they hope to achieve and have clear objectives right from the start.
"Organizations that jump on the mobility bandwagon with no clear objectives are usually disappointed and end in failure; CIOs should also look to partner with leaders that have a holistic view on mobility as point solutions no longer quite cut it," he said.
At the upcoming IDC Enterprise Mobility Conference, Charles Anderson, associate vice president and head of Telecom Practice, Mobility Lead, IDC Asia/Pacific, will share the research firm's perspective on how organizations should leverage mobility to achieve their goals, what the best practices in the marketplace are and how organizations should build and approach their mobility strategy.
The Kuala Lumpur leg of the Mobility conference is slated to take place on March 21 at the Prince Hotel & Residence Kuala Lumpur. For more information about the event, click here.
