A mobile infrastructure provides mobile devices access to a mobile operating system and business applications that are connected to a datacenter. With this system, our employees would access their corporate emails, manage documents, fill out invoices and receipts, even purchase orders. Mobile users demand data access anytime, anywhere, and organizations are pressed to provide it (Klein, 2015). The majority of businesses have not yet taken advantage of mobile infrastructure and haven’t moved passed older programs such as corporate emails, instant massager and calendars. Email applications are highly integrated into almost every organization, it is a critical component to any functioning business. Implementing a feature-rich mobile application would offer employees new ways to simplify their daily workflows and increase productivity. With the implementation of mobile applications employee productivity would improve dramatically. Employees could use a company’s mobile apps for their email, calendars, and contact lists, at all times whenever needed.

To avoid a significant data loss or leakage, the mobile infrastructure detaches data and store it within a datacenter rather than on personal devices, IT would be able to easily disconnect a device from the network if stolen, lost or compromised. All business applications are isolated from personal applications this process is called “sandboxing” which prevents businesses from having to waste time blocking a device and employees’ privacy is also enforced. The maintenance is also easier to control due to everything being centrally located. The mobile infrastructure consists of the integration of technology, software, support, standards, security measures, and devices for the management and delivery of wireless communications (Turban, Pollard, & Wood, 2018).
