Which platform, which base technology....
Excellent, comprehensive commentary on the difficulties of implementing a mobile strategy. There are few approaches to the marketplace that are more important than implementing a mobile strategy and reaching customers on the go.

There are quite a number of difficulties that come along with the efforts of trying to establish and implement a mobile strategy. it is true that there are few approaches to the marketplace that are more important than implementing a mobile strategy and reaching customers on the go. it must support employees on the go as well as build mobile apps for customers. Both initiatives still have a long way to go when it comes to improving the IT department in all sectors.

BYOD is really a big challenge for IT departments, but it also is an opportunity for the company if done right.
