It’s everyone’s favorite time of year again: Tax Season! As you get your taxes in order – itemizing deductions, compiling returns and desperately trying to recover your TurboTax password – remember to think about getting your ducks in a row for another urgent issue: enterprise mobility.
Okay, so maybe that’s a bit of a stretch, but it’s never too early to evaluate your enterprise mobile strategy.
That’s because, if you’re a CIO or IT leader at an enterprise, scaling for mobile is almost certainly one of the most urgent and challenging initiatives on your plate today. Grappling with how to build, test and deliver apps across a wide range of new devices, operating systems, and form factors — not to mention figuring out how to speed up releases — can be enough to send companies into a tailspin if they aren’t well-prepared for today’s dynamic mobile world. And enterprise mobility is only going to get more complicated as new types of connected devices proliferate and make their way into the enterprise, as Google Glass has already begun to demonstrate.
Are you wondering whether your company is in the red or in the black this year when it comes to mobile preparedness? We’ve put together a Mobile App Development Scalability Tax Worksheet to help you determine the answer. (Don’t worry: we promise it’s more fun than a 1040-ES.) Check it out below.
So, what does your mobile tax liability look like? If it’s high, that’s not necessarily a bad thing. It means you’re thinking ahead to the challenges that mobile will present for your company. And just like it’s never too early to file your taxes, it’s never too soon to develop an enterprise mobility plan that will carry you successfully into the future.
