[WEBINAR] The New Normal: Dealing with the Reality of an Unsecure World

Mobile Enterprise

Definition - What does Mobile Enterprise mean?

Mobile enterprise is a broad term that refers to the business practice of using mobile platforms to get core operations done. Nearly any kind of task or process that is accomplished on a mobile device, over a mobile platform, constitutes mobile enterprise.

Techopedia explains Mobile Enterprise

Mobile enterprise involves many different things, but the key feature is the use of a mobile device such as a smartphone or a tablet in performing office tasks.

Mobile enterprise has exploded in the business world, along with the quick adoption of mobile devices in the last 10 years. There is even a trend called "bring your own device" (BYOD), where companies encourage employees to use their personal mobile devices for business. Businesses have also started to migrate security to mobile platforms, as well as data handling and processes in other ways, such that mobile enterprise is now a central part of operations for a large portion of companies across the board.

Some IT professionals question the boundaries of mobile enterprise, especially that mobile point-of-sale (POS) solutions have become common, too. There is an issue whether mobile POS is part of mobile enterprise or whether it is its own category of mobile platform use.
