Executive Summary

According to predictions made by BoxTone in a 2010 press release, "Device and mobile delivery platform diversity will continue to expand, with most organizations moving from one mobile platform and a handful of approved devices, to least 2-3 mobile platforms and 15-20 different devices by 2015. With the consumerization of IT, employees are making smartphone choices based on a blend of personal and business needs." On top of smartphone growth, there is also an exploding growth in both tablets and enterprise mobile applications.

All of this translates to increased mobile enterprise expense, complexity, and risk. Smart devices and applications hitting the corporate network are just the beginning. A recent article in Internet News cites Gartner's prediction that "eighty percent of enterprises will overspend on their wireless service costs by an average of 15 percent through 2014."

If mobile spend remains on this trajectory and is left unmanaged, it will cost the enterprise far more than necessary. Take action now.
