There have been many reports about how smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices are changing the way workers access and use a company’s content. For companies, mobile devices have gone from high-priced novelty items to mainstream necessities. Nowadays we can put more information in our pockets than on computers that were built not that long ago.
From an information management perspective this means that your business can communicate like never before. Assuming that you have all the proper compliance and security, mobile content management (MCM) will bring your business to a whole new level of performance.
When you step towards achieving a higher level of performance, remember the business methods that you want to improve are the same as always. You want to capture information, process and then use it. Previously, this was accomplished on paper. Although we’ve now migrated towards using smartphones and tablets, the actual work does not change. It’s important to not lose sight of what you actually want to accomplish when considering venturing into mobile content management.
