Mobile

The Mobile Enterprise Architecture portfolio focuses on the development of mobile capability across CSU. In this context, mobile is defined as being related to people, process and technology capabilities that assist CSU in allowing anywhere, anytime access to information and services.

The Mobile portfolio is managed by the Senior Enterprise Architect (Digital).

Key Concepts

  • Governance – the mobile space is governed by the Mobile Coordination Committee (MCC), a cross organisationally representative committee of stakeholders. The MCC reports to the ISIP Governance Committee.
  • Strategy – a Mobile Strategy for 2013-14 was developed by a working group of the MCC in 2012. A 2016-17 "reload" of the Mobile Strategy is currently under development.
  • Health – the key measure of health across the level of mobile capability. Capability is determined by a combination of how well it can be accessed via the mobile web and the extent of mobile app coverage that exists.
  • Activities – a view of planned capability developments and timelines was outlined in the Mobile Roadmap in January 2015. An update of the Roadmap will be developed in Q1 2016.
