Introduction

According to research by Statcounter in 2016, mobile usage has now surpassed that of desktop and laptop. With the proliferation of high speed data connections and the ever increasing reliance on mobile devices, it’s no surprise that data usage is increasing. While the new age of mobility can be an incredible productivity driver – allowing employees to work effectively anytime, anywhere – the costs associated with them are rising. Improperly managed handsets leave companies at risk of spiraling recurring costs and regular bill shock events.

Data visibility is the key cornerstone for understanding why costs are what they are. It is absolutely necessary for determining the right policies to put in place to prevent excessive usage whilst ensuring that mobile devices still do their job – facilitating productive employees on the go. When policies, such as capping and blocking strategies are determined, they need to be implemented and enforced, whilst still guaranteeing a satisfactory end user experience.

This whitepaper explores ways to keep on top of data costs and optimize data usage to provide value for money. It analyzes the challenges, questions and considerations involved in the implementation of a data management solution across a mobile fleet. Lastly, it looks into other benefits to an organization if an enterprise-grade data management solution is selected.
