Advantages

mFinity for Mobile simplifies the development, deployment, and management of enterprise mobile applications.  In doing so it improves the productivity of developers, administrators, and users.  The following table summarizes the advantages and benefits of mFinity for Mobile:

mFinity for Mobile provides significant productivity advantages for developers, administrators, and end users.

  • Developer Productivity
    • 35-70% productivity improvement for app development and maintenance through single source code web-apps that have full access to native device functionality on Android and iOS mobile devices.
    • 80% or more increase in productivity when a new version of a mobile operating system is released, and even more if multiple mobile apps are affected.
  • Administrator Productivity
    • 50-90% improvement in the productivity when there are two or more mobile applications affected by the release of a mobile operating system update.
    • 20-70% increase in productivity for the initial implementation of enterprise mobility, when there are three or more mobile apps per employee.
    • 30-80% increase in productivity for adding a new mobile employee when there are two or more mobile apps per employee.
    • 50-90% increase in productivity for a mobile employee changing roles within the organization when there are two or more mobile apps per employee.
  • User Productivity
    • Employees are not required to download individual apps from an enterprise catalog and always have access to the latest versions of apps and data.
    • The mFinity mobile workspace provides single sign-on (SSO) to all the apps available to the employee, reducing the number of passwords to remember and reducing calls to the help desk.

If an enterprise is seeking to implement a BYOD, CYOD (Choose Your Own Device), or COPE (Company Owned, Personally Enabled) policy for mobile employees, and will be providing an average of two or more applications per mobile employee, or the enterprise needs to connect mobile users to an Oracle database or applications and requires offline access to enterprise mobile data, or needs to access native device functionality on multiple types of devices, then mFinity for Mobile can provide significant productivity benefits.
