Employees can use the mobile devices to good use by showing the organization's updated information and forecasts of the business hence pooling in the prospective client. This will be beneficial to the organization in a long run in getting new business and generate revenue.

With the introduction of BYOD platforms, mobility has resulted in cost savings for the organization, as it not only saves on infrastructure but also encourages employees to be available while not in the office and contribute to the business.
Major Concerns of Enterprise Mobility
Even though enterprise mobility is looked upon as the major role in improving the organizational processes, employees’ performance, customer service and many key aspects of the modern day business. There are many aspects that are challenging the inclusion of enterprise mobility into the businesses ecosystem. Developing an enterprise mobile app becomes a difficult task, as developers resolve various complications to make an enterprise mobile app class apart from the desktop apps.
One of the major issues after launching an app that any organization will face is its adoption by the employees. This challenge can be countered by training the employees on how to use the app, so that they can get familiar with the app, helping them in increasing overall growth of the organization.
When we talk about enterprise mobility, we cannot exclude the huge data that is exposed to outside threats. Making data available from remote locations also makes it accessible to unwanted sources. To counter this, the data access should be monitored by the IT department.
Another way for countering mobile data security is EMM (Enterprise mobile management) which addresses the security issues of the enterprise mobility.
Mobile Device Management (MDM), mobile application management (MAM) and mobile information management (MIM) are combined to create a security system where MDM locks mobile devices, MAM controls employee access and MIM allows approved apps to access corporate data.
Platform to be used
The major challenge faced by any organization is choosing the right platform for the enterprise app development that is whether an app is based on iOS, Android or Windows. Many tools are available for building enterprise app, and if the right tools are selected, a great enterprise app can be made available for the organization.
The meaning of new age workplace is being redefined with innovations that are taking place everyday. Businesses now need to give importance to enterprise mobility. The transformational nature of enterprise mobility in 2017 may create a number of challenging situations for businesses. But if all the aforementioned challenges are dealt appropriately, Enterprise mobility is the answer for many work-related challenges.
