2012 has been a transformative year for enterprise mobility with increased mobile device adoption, mobile applications development and mobile centric solutions. Bring Your Own Device (BYOD); Mobile Device Management (MDM) and Mobile Application Management (MAM) were trending in mobility. In spite of all these developments, mobilizing enterprises still posed challenges to CIOs. Let us take a closer look at some factors that contributed to enterprise mobility in 2012.

Device Proliferation: Reports and Analysts have indicated that mobile device adoption especially smartphones and tablets surged device adoption. IDC reported Apple's iOS, Google's Android and Blackberry were the most preferred among enterprises, some businesses also showed interest in Microsoft Windows mobile. Another IDC report indicated that over 117 million tablet PCs were sold in 2012 worldwide and another 165 million will be purchased in 2013 with the enterprise segment driving its popularity and sales. CIOs are battling out security issues with such device proliferation into the enterprises.

Enterprise Mobile Apps: The device adoption led to the increase in enterprise application development.Gartner has estimated more than 45 billion app downloads in 2012, which is likely to double in 2013. For an enterprise, this is only an indication that the importance of apps will increase in the following years. The choice of developing the app on a native or web based platform will be a challenge. The decision to this dilemma has evolved the hybrid model of combining both native and web based apps.

Mobile Strategies: All the devices and applications began to converge for improvement of corporate data security and policies to regulate the use of mobile devices and mobile applications in the enterprise. The concept of Bring your Own Device (BYOD) gained a lot of traction in 2012 when enterprises allowed their employees to bring their mobile devices for official use. Although Mobile Device Management (MDM) also contributed to the BYOD phenomenon, it did account for factors affecting the application and usage. The year ahead will see Mobile Application Management (MAM) and hybrid models combining the features of BYOD, MDM and MAM for an effective corporate strategy and security policy formulation.

What does 2013 have in store for enterprise mobility? The penetration of mobility in commercial and enterprise spaces has been a gradual process more like an osmotic effect. We have now reached a point where mobility is deliberately forced into systems with employees bringing various mobile devices to the work place. This deliberation will see mobility trends evolving in 2013 and the forthcoming years.

Custom Mobile Enterprise Applications: Previous years saw the migration of existing enterprise applications into mobile. The future will see increase in custom mobile enterprise applications development. This will contribute to technological innovations throwing newer challenges and opportunities for developers and strategists. This will kindle growing interest in testing, monitoring, securing and use of enterprise apps through corporate app stores.

Shift in Practices: Bring your own device (BYOD) gained a lot of traction in the past year. The year ahead will see Mobile Application Management (MAM) trending backed by Mobile Device Management (MDM). As enterprise mobile application development grows, the need to manage the apps will also increase. Although MAM solutions will increase, BYOD will also continue to grow depending on the level of enterprise mobilization.

Mobility & Cloud: With cloud computing also contributing to the consumerization of IT, cloud based mobile solutions will prove to be successful technological combinations. Cloud and mobility are considered as 2 sides of a coin with devices being universally controlled using cloud based mobile applications, MDM, MAM to capitalize and monitor the mobile workforce.
