GOAL OR METRIC: Have Mobile ERP Access Strategy
RATIONALE: According to a recent paper by the Aberdeen Group, providing secure mobile access for the organization is an essential component of an overall ERP strategy. In this study, 50% of best-in-class companies have aligned their mobility strategy with their EPR strategy, compared to only 16% of “laggards.” Through this alignment, best-in-class companies can provide role-based access, and ensure that mobile users – such as management and sales – are getting the information access anywhere they need, but do so within corporate guidelines.
