Myths of Mobility: New report examines common misperceptions of mobile technology


Report explores security, cost, management, integration and use of mobile technology to help organizations better understand the reality of today’s mobile workforce

December 15, 2005, New York, NY, USA - The reality of today’s workforce is this: While your employees may be in the office, they may spend more than a third of their time away from their desks. While corner office executives may have access to mobile email, in fact more than half your workforce uses mobile technology to some extent or other for conducting work. There is a definite need for mobile technology in business, and the reality is that organizations can support this level of mobility today in a cost-effective, secure and easily deployed manner.

With all of the mixed messages surrounding mobile technology today, misconceptions abound regarding what can and can’t be achieved. Today, Nokia is introducing “Myths of Mobility”, a new report examining common assumptions to help decision makers better understand the reality of mobile technology. The report aims to educate businesses about these misperceptions and inspire them to further investigate the issues around enabling workforce mobility. The report combines Nokia research, customer case studies, and third party data to paint a valid picture of today’s mobile workforce.

“Today many decision makers believe that mobility is not cost-effective, not secure, and is a nightmare to manage. These notions are based on assumptions from fragmented sources and second hand comments, and we hope to help clarify today’s mobile landscape with this report,” said Olivier Cognet, vice president, strategy and business development, Nokia Enterprise Solutions, Nokia Enterprise Solutions. “There are customers of ours that are reaping the benefits of mobility as we speak, seeing return on their mobile investments, an increase in productivity, and improved employee morale. Their examples and many others combined with our research and that of third parties has produced a report that we think will help shed light on some of the confusion surrounding mobility.”

The introduction of “Myths of Mobility” is part of a continuing initiative from Nokia to provide businesses with the reference materials and resources they need to successfully enable mobile technology within their own organizations.
