Mobile has become ubiquitous—and it’s no wonder, given that worldwide smartphone users were expected to total 1.75 billion in 2014 (a number that, by the way, will only continue to rise). When looking beyond mobile device usage, however, mobility-driven business imperatives like a comprehensive strategy aren’t catching on quite as fast. One of the stumbling blocks? Understanding the need to not just introduce mobile devices to your workforce, but also mobilize your key business processes so that you can tap into (no pun intended) accessibility, efficiency and robust functionality regardless of user role or location.
Aegion’s story made for a compelling conversation during this year’s Gartner Symposium/ITxpo, especially since mobility (and how to implement it) is a continually hot topic among IT leaders and CIOs. Thys Lourens, Aegion’s CIO, joined our SVP of Global Sales, Mark Goode, to take a deeper dive into Aegion’s mobile supply chain journey, including the company’s business challenges and priorities, how they explored alternative solutions and why they chose a platform-based approach leveraging DSI.
