The first introduction is Dell's Enterprise Mobility Application suite, which includes consulting services as well as solutions intended to help improve the employee user experience and provide mobile business intelligence.

It also consists of multi-platform app development tools for both native and cross-platform work across iOS, Android, BlackBerry and Windows 8 as well as HTML5.

Some of the consulting services draw upon Dell's existing best practices library. Dell is also now including a new mobility services workshop that is touted to offer more in-depth analysis and recommendations based on a specific customer.
