DEFINITION of 'Enterprise Mobility'

Enterprise mobility describes a trend in business where work occurs away from a centralized location. Workers may use mobile devices or technology to work from home, from vacation or on-the-road. Workers engaged with enterprise mobility are different from digital nomads in that enterprise mobility refers not only to the mobility of workers but also to the mobility of corporate data and information.

BREAKING DOWN 'Enterprise Mobility'

Enterprise mobility allows for greater productivity as workers can start a task in one location before moving to another (a client site, a second corporate location, etc.). However, enterprise mobility trades location independence for potential security concerns like data breaches and loss of privacy.

Companies which accept enterprise mobility must have effective enterprise mobility management to organize the workflow and security risks. Technologies which have led to the increase in enterprise mobility include cloud computing, task management software, video-conferencing, and secure mobile devices.
