EMM Trends 2017

Mobility is continuously becoming a top priority for enterprises as operational productivity and efficiency has a lot to gain from it. However, this creates a simultaneous challenge for the enterprises. The soaring expansion of mobile devices, wearables, and IoT is making their management difficult. Tackling this challenge upfront makes it necessary to adopt the latest trends and create new EMM strategies around the same. Below mentioned are the latest enterprise mobility trends to adopt, in order to succeed in mobility efforts.

Increasing Inflow of Connected Devices

According to Business Insider, the number of connected devices is going to be 34 billion by 2020. Samsung’s announcement of EMM for wearables was a major indicator of increase in connected devices within enterprises. While connected devices can foster productivity and bring efficiency, they are also likely to increase complexity around security and mobile management. Therefore, enterprises need to add connected devices in their EMM strategy.

Embracing BYOD as an Established Norm

The acceptance of BYOD relates to the tremendous productivity that it brings out. Many businesses have struggled to let employees use their personal devices at work. This has been owing to difficulty in managing privacy and compliance policies. However, now it is becoming a well-established norm in the world of corporate. It does not mean that enterprises no longer have to deal with the challenges of BYOD. Rather, it implies that enterprises focus on an effective BYOD approach to secure employee-owned devices.

Switching to Cloud

Enterprise solutions are increasingly migrating to the cloud. This is being done in the wake of easy availability and affordability of reliable cloud based MDM services. However, switching to cloud without a strategy does not promise app and data security. In order to address this security concern, enterprises either opt for hybrid solutions, hosting critical apps on premises and others apps on cloud or go for a comprehensive cloud based solution that does not compromise security.

Accepting Android

The explosion of enterprise-ready Android devices like Samsung’s indicate the rising acceptance of Android devices for enterprise mobility. This is combined with the proliferation of Android for work and latest Pixel devices. Stringent EMM solutions will help IT departments support Android systems and maintain a smooth approach to security.
