Creating a flexible SaaS-first organization
Founded in 2007, MobileIron is a market-leader in mobile security. The company provides unified endpoint and enterprise mobility management (EMM) for mobile devices, such as multi-factor authentication (MFA). MobileIron has seen rapid growth and has close to 1,000 people before Ivanti acquired the company in September 2020.
The growth of SaaS applications forced IT to change how they manage software and applications across the company. Sumit Johar, the CIO, outlined how IT used to be the primary buyer, and their focus was around building and implementing software and services. Now purchases are spread out across the organization, and IT needs to focus on integration and creating value.
Sumit’s goal was a shift in how IT operated, and to make MobileIron a true SaaS and subscription company. That meant creating an agile set of internal operations, and tools and technologies that enable that flexibility. All driven by data to help him make right decisions on what is working and what is not.
