This paper will review the key requirements when considering a mobility solution. Historically, enterprise mobility solutions – whether supporting a field technician, a warehouse worker or a delivery driver – have been deployed as a point solution, separate from the overall IT infrastructure.  However this approach has limitations in system scalability and manageability. Today, enterprises are taking a more holistic approach to mobility investments. In fact, according to VDC’s research, over the past three years CIOs and CTOs have consistently identified mobile solutions as a “top ten? IT investment priority.

Intermec recognizes these current and emerging requirements and has addressed them as part of the design of their next generation mobile platform: the 70 Series.
