alfabet AG, a provider of strategic IT planning and business IT management solutions, says its Mobile Portfolio Manager is now available. With this new application, alfabet complements its offerings for business IT Management, specifically addressing the needs of CIOs for informed decision-making across the integrated IT portfolio using mobile devices.
Apple's iPad and other tablets have enjoyed a huge surge in popularity, not only with consumers but also with business professionals. Information has become a ubiquitous commodity and business people demand its availability everywhere, anytime.
The Mobile Portfolio Manager meets today's and tomorrow's demands for instant and individual access to enterprise information, and fullest possible availability of data, a fingertip away.
Designed in HTML5, the platform-agnostic application is available now for use on tablet computers – iPad and Android. Business and IT leaders increasingly like these devices and would like to use them, but they currently often lack meaningful business applications.
alfabet's Mobile Portfolio Manager serves as a practical and easy-to-use dashboard for CIOs and other decision makers in business and IT, which facilitates access to up-to-the-minute information. It provides valuable insight into the enterprise IT portfolio, thereby supporting better informed decisions within the business strategy, investment and risk management context. Server-based, centrally managed and rolled-out to the mobile terminal equipment, the Mobile Portfolio Manager complies with the highest security requirements.
Many IT and business professionals are already using tablets - in fact, recent IDG Connect research shows that 71 percent already own tablets, and of those that don't 90 percent are intending to buy one over the next 12 months. As bring your own device (BYOD) will soon become the norm, these devices are going to be used for work and there are many factors that companies need to consider. In her blog Kathryn Cave looks at how the growth of tablets could affect business, and discusses how tablets could shape businesses between now and 2020.
