The Need for Chief Mobility Officers

Compliance regulations are in the process of finally grasping control over new technologies affecting their corresponding industries. People may accomplish a task like check a status, find an expert, receive an alert, make a purchase, answer a question, share an opinion, or send a message with their mobile phones. This shift will lead to 350 million employees using smartphones and business spending billions of dollars on mobile projects. Employees prefer to text and call each other on their mobile devices instead of their desk phones.
This chief mobility officer position should oversee not only the bank’s consumer-facing apps, but also its B2B and employee apps that mobilize back-office processes. Deploying multiple mobile apps without a central coordinating function can be very costly in terms of time, money and security risks. There are many different tools that can be used to help ensure secure enterprise mobility at the device, app and data levels. For example, while basic Mobile Device Management solutions include policy management for devices, corporate data and content or applications, only some high-end solutions also include security mechanisms like data encryption, user authentication, malware protection or security regulation compliancy.
Security fears are one of the main reasons banks and other enterprises have slowly waded into the mobility waters rather than diving in head first. The right application and integration platforms can also help ensure compliance with regulations.
