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.

In my previous post, I shared the virtues of endpoint management on the employee experience and the benefits it brings to organizations. However, it is equally important to look at the people who are executing this process and what they get out of it. Letâ€™s shift focus and discuss how IT professionals and their teams can benefit from unified endpoint management.
The question on many IT minds is, â€śwhatâ€™s in it for me?â€ť. On the one hand, offering employees the ability to utilize the latest technologies in the workplace makes for happier end users, but thatâ€™s a tangential benefit to IT at best. The only quasi-measurable result stemming from this might be less pestering from employees in regard to the access and integration of technology in the workplace.
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 we expand our services into a growing number of industries, we see commonalities in several areas. In addition to a desire for better data security, a more productive workforce, and processes and systems that free up IT time and resources, companies on the leading edge are paying close attention to how technology impacts company culture.
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.
For years weâ€™ve been working with and talking to organizations of all sizes across industries about the value of meaningful mobility. Though some aspects of mobility are beginning to mature, the constant of technology innovation and its impact on the workforce make it important that we continue to examine current and future trends. This year, Samsung commissioned Oxford Economics to examine the state of enterprise mobility in 2018, and together they highlight five key enterprise mobility trends, some of which are no-brainers while others might surprise you.
