"It can be a transformative technology for enterprises, on the scale of desktop computing in the 1990s. But not by itself. Meaningful mobility needs meaningful management, and thus clear, engaged owners from throughout the organization to collectively define, drive, and adjust its use to get that desired transformation result."
