Impacts and Recommendations

  • Huge growth in the quantity and variety of mobile app data, much of it consumer-centric, requires IT leaders to ensure it is managed as a full "citizen" of their enterprise's information infrastructure
  • Mobile app data is often siloed, and IT leaders will find data from apps that use cloud-based information repositories even more diffuse
  • Context-aware mobile apps need to meet users' requirements in real time, which demands that IT leaders make changes to their enterprise's information infrastructure
