What is a mobile technology assessment?
A mobile technology assessment provides organizations with comprehensive information and insights to guide the use of mobile solutions throughout the organizations. A thorough assessment will provide critical information about the infrastructure and supporting technologies necessary to sustain and improve the workflow. Specifically, a mobile technology assessment will provide a comprehensive review of all mobile solution options including risks and benefits of each possible outcome.
To do this, the assessment team of experts will:
# Assess current infrastructure including wireless networks to determine capacity for growth.
# Examine policies and procedures and provide recommendations to close gaps.
# Advise organizations on complimentary technology solutions to augment and overall mobility strategy.
By examining the current state of mobility, the assessment team of experts can help solidify a mobile strategy that meets the needs of today and one that opens doors for appropriate levels of progress into the future.
