State of Enterprise Mobility: Device and application issues are widespread and interrupt productivity
B2M Solutions recently released its second report on the State of Enterprise Mobility. The results may surprise â€” and even alarm â€” leaders at companies whose employees rely on mobile devices and applications to do their jobs daily.
As the world becomes increasingly connected, it becomes easier to get online from anywhere. This creates benefits for employers, such as allowing flexible work schedules and remote work. At the same time, it exposes the enterprise to potential threats by cybercriminals.
More organizations are turning toward computing solutions that allow employees to stay connected and work on the go. While the upside is too good to pass up â€” decreased downtime and increased communication â€” companies need to be prepared for the inherent risks of enterprise mobility.
For decades, PCs were institutional at the vast majority of large, corporate companies. IT traditionalists balked at integrating Macs into their network, despite the quality, security and capability of these Apple devices. As the proliferation of tablets and smartphones in the workplace increased, it made ITâ€™s job increasingly complex. But with the advent of unified endpoint management (UEM) technology, incorporating Apple in the enterprise is both seamless and simple.
As IT leaders look for cost-effective ways to secure their corporate infrastructure without hindering employee productivity or limiting device accessibility, the value of a modern management approach is coming sharply into focus. To ensure Tech Orchard is well positioned to address the growing demand for help transitioning successfully to the digital workspace, we are pleased to announce the addition of Tom Bollig to our team.
The Tech Orchard team made the pilgrimage to Las Vegas for the VMworld conference again this year.Â We were excited to see VMwareâ€™s continued focus on UEM and the future of the digital workspace. One of the biggest announcements this year was the official release of a much-anticipated co-management tool that provides a simple way to transition from SCCM, a legacy PCLM tool, to Workspace ONE Modern Management.
