IDC Technology Spotlight - Enterprise Mobile App Development: Enabling IT to Retake the Lead in a BYOD World

The transformation of enterprises into mobile organizations often is led by the mobile workers themselves as they use their own devices for work. This frequently puts enterprise IT at a disadvantage as organizations must play catch-up with the rapidly changing bring-your-own-device (BYOD) world. This Technology Spotlight describes the enterprise IT challenges in a mobile world and provides an overview of IDC's Mobility Maturity Model, a road map for strategic transformation to enterprise mobility and evolution from "bring your own device" to "create your own application" (CYOA). In addition, after reviewing HP Anywhere, an enterprise mobile application platform, this document provides a timeline for enterprises looking to reestablish IT as a strategic organization rather than a reactive one.
