Mobile Computing Business Case and Project
We have prepared a business case
template (in Microsoft Excel) that can be modified to suit your own
mobile computing business case.
We have also designed a project plan
that lists most of the tasks involved in a typical mobile application
development project. This project plan template runs under
Microsoft Project 2000.
About the Business Cases Template
The business case template assumes a
field data collection application. The template shows five year
capital and operating costs for various hardware components like
notebooks, handheld devices, modems, application server,
communications gateways, wireless data traffic service costs as well
as application software customization. Against this cost, it estimates
productivity improvements of mobile workers in the field. Sample
hourly wages are assumed. Then, it summarizes cumulative five year
costs and benefits.
You can change any of the cost and
benefit numbers to suit the specific mobile application that you may
have in mind.
About the Project Plan Template
We have developed a project plan template in MS Project for a typical mobile
computing project. This project plan lists over 200 tasks that may be involved in an
end-to-end systems integration of an enterprise-wide mobile computing project. Developing
a business plan and justification, developing an initial architecture, selecting the right
mobile hardware, evaluating an appropriate wireless network, selecting the best systems
integration partner, and technical integration with the backend legacy systems are listed
in the right sequence. You can save a lot of time by using this as a base for your own
