Enterprise Mobility Services

Whether you need a custom mobile dashboard for BI and analytics, a mobile frontend for an ECM or an ERP system, a work order/inventory management application for your field workforce, or any other custom mobile solution, First Line’s experts can help.

Our comprehensive Enterprise Mobility services help guide clients through the entire lifecycle: from strategy and architecture to device management, application development, testing and support, we go through the process together with the clients to deliver effective end-to-end solutions.

What potential changes to your business processes and application infrastructure should be considered in designing your mobile solution? What middleware approach makes most sense for your current and future set of mobile applications? Which mobile client architecture suits your needs best: native, web, or hybrid? How will you control and protect your data? Our specialists will work with you to help answer these and many other questions to arrive at the optimal solution for your mobile needs.

Enterprise Mobility Roadmap

  • Assess current mobility status
  • Identify mobility use cases, evaluate value-add and feasibility
  • Prioritize use cases
  • Assess business process and enterprise architecture implications

Backend system analysis

  • Crucial part of the project
  • Data sources and preparation analysis
  • Capacity assessment

Mobile platform and device selection

  • Use case-driven (screen size, functionality, etc.)
  • Numbers of mobile workers, TCO
  • Device inventory and prior investment
  • BYOD

Architecture selection

  • Native applications: best user experience and performance, most robust functionality, full access to device capabilities, best in offline mode
  • HTML5-based web applications: potentially significant degree of code reuse, easier support for multiple platforms, performance and UX inferior to native apps, deficiencies in offline capabilities
  • Hybrid applications: HTML5-based web apps wrapped in native containers; code reuse and cost savings compared to native, better access to native device capabilities than HTML5; while attractive, the approach is still immature
