MUMBAI, INDIA: A recent joint study done by VMware with Frost & Sullivan reveals that only 17 percent of respondent enterprises currently being assessed as mature in their adoption of Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) technology.

 

The study surveyed more than 500 Indian companies from various verticals and calculated each company’s mobile adoption maturity level, as well as its strategic and operational excellence capabilities. Based on the scores, the companies were benchmarked on an Enterprise Mobility Maturity Index (EMMI) and classified into four categories: Scouts, Aspirants, Achievers and Exemplars, with Scouts the least and Exemplars the most mature in the adoption of mobility solutions.

The study observed that 71 percent of Indian companies are still in the nascent stages of adopting solutions to enable a truly mobile workforce. Around 53 percent of enterprises fall under the Scout’s category whereas 17 percent of Enterprises are adequately mature on the EMMI chart.

It was also observed that only 35 percent of the respondents take less than 30 minutes to onboard a user to their BYOD program. More than four in 10 enterprises even lack a mechanism to track which mobile devices have access to corporate data.

“The proliferation of mobile devices is having a big impact on business operations. However, most companies in India are now only starting to understand that deploying a mobile first strategy is critical to business continuity. Indian enterprises must look beyond basic enterprise app management by truly integrating identity, application and enterprise mobility management to stay relevant,” said Arun Parameswaran, Managing Director, VMware India.

The EMMI can also be used as a tool to help Indian companies identify the gaps in their mobility adoption, and address these gaps to emerge as a mobile-first organisation.

“IT leaders can leverage the EMMI to baseline the current maturity of their mobility strategies and create the building blocks to advance mobility adoption within their organizations. This proven methodology can be a strategic tool for enterprises to devise a mobility roadmap for the future,” said Benoy CS, Director, Digital Transformation Practice, Frost & Sullivan.

The survey findings also indicated that Android (87 percent) and Apple iOS (71 percent) are the most popular mobile platforms to support corporate applications across enterprises, followed by Windows and Windows 10 platforms.  

However, the study suggests that local enterprises must look beyond basic enterprise app management by truly integrating identity, application and enterprise mobility management to stay relevant.
