We already know how important a mobile application is for all enterprises big and small who want to maximize the profits and ensure mobility of business. However, mere creation of good mobile apps will not establish a company as a successful name in the mobile domain. Proper deployment of mobile applications is necessary to guarantee a long term business mobility plan for enterprises. Deploying a mobile app requires the follow up of many factors like enterprise goal, preferences of the target consumers, post deployment mobile analytics, the app developer, and the enterprise’s future projects. If the deployment strategy of mobile applications in an enterprise is satisfactory, it helps resolve several problems such as employee efficiency, data overload, and investment expenditure on the part of the enterprise. Only if mobile applications are properly deployed in an enterprise, can they help in bringing about business values for a company.
Listed below are a few mobile application deployment strategies for bringing optimum results for your enterprise:
1.Always begin the deployment process with existing users of mobile devices. Not only do these users have more knowledge about the apps, they are also acquainted with the network issues and troubleshooting application defects. The deployment process of a mobile app must always be monitored and controlled by the enterprise authority.
2.Bundle a device app executable file into cabinet (.cab) files. For this, first create Smart Device CAB projects. Additional coding of the apps during deployment will not be necessary.
3.While deploying a new app in a mobile device, use a browser and manually copy a .cab file or use the ActiveSync Application Manager. Alternately, mounting the new app on MultiMediaCards (MMCs) and writing it on Autorun files is a good app deployment technique.
4.Conduct a training session with the mobile device users within the enterprise immediately before the deployment process takes place. App bugs or network issues which require fixing before launch of the new app will then be identified & fixed. Other potential problems can also be detected this way.
5.One of the most important mobile app deployment techniques is to introduce a web analytics strategy which will regularly monitor the successful working of the new app. The key components of this strategy are TCO (total cost of ownership) and ROI (return on investment).
6.Try to analyze the needs and usage habits of the current mobile users within & outside the enterprise. This will give you a fair idea about the additional tools & methods to be added on the mobile device or the mobile app before deployment for business purposes.
Every enterprise must keep in mind that mobile apps will be one of the important parts of the corporate strategy. A mobile app is not only required to look good and provide functionality, but also to represent the business of the enterprise as a competent & formidable entity. The deployment of all mobile apps should be done in such a way as will promote it as a marketing tool which will reach out to potential customers & manage existing relationships.
