Why a Mobile First strategy?

Posted by Atle Skjekkeland on Jul 6, 2014 10:08:27 AM

Smartphones are now everywhere. It is estimated that 4.2 Billion people have a toothbrush, but 5.1 Billion people have a mobile phone subscription. They are always on, always improving, and always connected to the internet and to the cloud (unless you are an AT&T customer…). 

Anybody remember WordPerfect? They went from being a market leader to almost irrelevant in 2 years when the platform changed from DOS to Windows. Does your company risk this when the platform changes to mobile? Even Microsoft is now a “Mobile First, Cloud First” company according to their new CEO Satya Nadella. The reality is that when the platform changes, the leaders change.

My friend George Parapadakis from IBM created the below chart to explain how mobile is your new reality. You can read more about this on his blog

Welcome to my blog. My name is Atle Skjekkeland, Chief Evangelist at AIIM – the Association for Information and Image Management.

I am a modern day Norwegian viking fighting for how to best use technology to transform businesses. Join me explore how technology and information can be used to create a new reality, add value, reduce costs, or manage risk.

I have for the last 9 years lived with my family in "Vinland" - this is what the vikings used to call America when they discovered this continent hundreds of years before Columbus. But even vikings get homesick, and our new home is now in Kristiansand, Norway.

Join me to explore how to best transform businesses to become digital businesses. If I can help, contact me at askjekkeland@aiim.org.
