Underscoring thegrowing need for adopting a lifecycle approach to enterprise-wide mobilemanagement, Ralph Rodriguez, seniorvice president of technology research at Aberdeen Group, introduced Aberdeen’s recentWEM benchmark report, “Execute on Wireless Expense Management to Drive ROI,” bysaying: “Mobility deployments and their ongoing management require aholistic lifecycle approach to cost reduction. This is because mobile devicesare distinct within the enterprise and are inherently un-tethered, giving themdistinct obsolescence issues while being truly mission-critical to theend-user. Because of this, enterprises must look for every opportunity to drivedown wireless costs. Best-in-Class organizations recognize the value ofwireless spend visibility and are creating new ways of reducing the total costof their mobility deployments.”
