SOTI: Helping Organizations Transform for a Mission-Critical, Mobile-First World

An Intellyx Brain Candy Brief

Digital transformation is about the fundamental upending of business models and a paradigm shift in which the customer experience is at the center of everything. For organizations that are in the throes of such a transformation, they find that two converging forces hit them simultaneously: an increasingly mobile-first world and one in which frontline, mission-critical activities must happen — and be managed — at the point of customer interaction.

SOTI, a well-established leader in Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) for mission-critical applications, has introduced what it calls its SOTI ONE Platform to help enterprise organizations deal with this emerging problem in a highly integrated and modern fashion. Building on its EMM history, the platform is a mobility solution suite which the company developed to help organizations rapidly design, deploy, manage, and measure mission-critical, mobile applications.

The platform, which the company is releasing in phases, includes six independent, but integrated components:

  • A no-code, rapid applications development solution
  • An EMM solution
  • A help desk/ticket management solution
  • A business intelligence (BI) solution
  • An IoT management solution
  • A collaboration solution

Their purpose-driven, inter-platform integrations enable organizations to rapidly develop and deploy mobility-based solutions with the baked-in functionality that mission-critical applications require. For instance, applications created in their rapid application development solution are automatically integrated into their EMM solution for ease of control and management and have built-in connections to their BI solution to provide robust reporting and insights on application usage. It is an ambitious vision for the future, but one that a mobile-first, digitally transformed world may sorely need.
