Mobile Enterprise Alliance advisory board holds inaugural meeting
The Mobile Enterprise Alliance (MEA), a global advocacy group promoting the business benefits of workforce mobility to enterprise end users and decision makers, announced that its advisory board held its inaugural meeting on 22 January 2004 in New York City. A group of ten board members representing leading vendors and enterprises met with MEA management to exchange ideas and provide strategic direction to the organization.

The board members identified a number of significant challenges to broad enterprise adoption of mobility. These included infrastructure and application management issues, business justification, security, technical support, application reliability and performance. An important need articulated by the MEA Advisory Board was for a set of industry-recognized business metrics to clearly link the cost of mobile technology deployments with business benefits such as cost reduction and productivity gains. The board began work on identifying what metrics are needed in the industry and by enterprises. The MEA will be communicating these findings over the coming months.

"For mobility to truly reach a tipping point in the enterprise, it has to be viewed as foundational, as absolutely necessary to the success of the organization," stated Bob Simmons, president, MEA Advisory Board. "To help advance the industry, the MEA will develop a set of recommended metrics for both enterprises and vendors, supported by the collective best practices of our membership. Last week's meeting was an important step in that process."

The MEA Advisory Board comprises nearly 20 decision-makers from leading technology vendors, enterprises, and analyst organizations, including: Citrix Systems, Eli Lilly and Company, Everypath, Fiberlink, Hewlett-Packard (HP), IDC, Inmarsat, Intel, palmOne, Symbian, Symbol Technologies, and Telefonica Data USA.
