Need of an Enterprise Mobility Strategy
Mobility is a journey, not destination.
The implementation of mobility solutions requires enterprises to build capability and strategy tosynthesize many essential mobility requirements e.g. devices, networks, applications, integrationwith complex data systems, workflow, identification of the right mobile device management(MDM) and middleware (MEAP) platforms etc. There arrives need for an enterprise to identify itsmobile users, understand their needs, assess various mobility parameters and their impact, andbuild a well-defined mobility strategy and roadmap for mobility adaption.Endeavour played a mobile systems integrator (MSI) role and advised K-C to articulate its mobilityvision, strategy and implementation roadmap.

Value Gained by Kimberly-Clark
Endeavour helped K-C articulate a mobility vision, strategy and roadmap to establish aneffective foundation for mobile application delivery at K-C. The deliverables were in the formof a
strategy report
proof of concepts
for quick-win applications, and phased wise
implementation roadmap
followed by an
executive presentation
to the K-C execution team.Below are the areas that Endeavour assessed and analyzed as part of this assessment.
Mobile Device and User Management Strategy and Process
Ensure that the introduction of new mobile devices is implemented seamlessly into the K-CITS environment. This requires extending the existing infrastructure to enable Mobile DeviceManagement, Mobile User Management, and key elements of application provisioning.Projects to evaluate several software productions and solutions available for BUY vs. BUILDdecisions will need to be undertaken as a priority.
Ensure that security policies, standards, and a framework are defined from Day 1. The goalwas to ensure adoption of K-C ITS security policies already in place in the K-C Mobilityenvironment. This is then implemented as a key first set of project deliverables along withfirst set of mobile applications being developed.
K-C Mobile User Categorization
The Mobility User (both internal and consumer) is defined and categorized, and a clearunderstanding of what they need in terms of mobile applications is documented to guidefuture development.
Mobile Applications Strategy and Quick-Win Projects
Over the short term, K-C needs to collect Mobile application needs based on its owncategorization of users and other dimensions such as functions and type of applications(content, transaction workflow, and analytics). This should also extend to the consumerapplication needs. This starts with the development of the quick win application projects,and then extends to other applications.
Define and Develop the K-C Mobile Enterprise Applications Platform
Define the roadmap for building the K-C Mobile Enterprise Application Platform (MEAP) andintegration to both front-end and back-end K-C Enterprise applications. The MEAP willconsist of both in-house developed modules and purchased tools and products that areintegrated into the existing K-C ITS infrastructure.
