As part of the Kickstart we’ll score your current state of maturity and provide a prioritized, phased plan to chose any existing gaps, along with a Mobile Roadmap to get you going. These guides ensure IT has the tools, processes, controls and talents for building and supporting a thriving mobile strategy moving forward.
First, we develop a thorough understanding of your organization’s goals with mobile and review previous or existing mobile-related initiatives. We document mobile use-cases from key stakeholders then focus our analysis on the relevant actors, data and mobility requirements, high-level functionality and security standards.
Assessment, Risk Analysis, and Standards
This step assesses your current IT maturity and identifies areas needing improvement. We conduct a comprehensive risk analysis of all proposed mobile use-cases and review existing policies and procedures in support of the mobile infrastructure.
Maturity Assessment: Leveraging the Mobile Maturity Framework (Mobile Ranking and Mobile Report Card), this assessment provides a maturity ranking and calls out those areas requiring special attention.
Risk Analysis: For each use case brought forward by the business, we understand the type of corporate data assets accessed and the potential impact of a security compromise. The risks associated with each use-case are categorized on a security scale ranging from “Untrusted” to “Restricted”. Based on this profile, we devise custom strategies to mitigate risk moving forward.
Mobile Standards: Mobile adoption policies, procedures, vendors and standards vary by organization and knowing the pros and cons of each approach can be overwhelming. To help you along, we lay out your best options every step of the way.
Roadmap and Next Steps
We conclude with the generation of actionable steps presented in an IT Strategy Roadmap. The Roadmap ranks tactics by weighing business value against readiness and cost and outlines phases in which the mobile Roadmap should unfold.
It’s Actionable: Lastly, an Executive Readout Presentation summarizes findings, recommendations, timelines and next steps. Our phased plan details recommended activities along with timeline, resource and cost estimates to form a highly actionable strategy.
