Enterprise Mobility Trends for 2020

Five Key Enterprise Mobility Trends for 2020

Five Key Enterprise Mobility Trends for 2020

Advancing technology and a shift in work habits have seen more employees working out of the office by leveraging the use of mobile devices and cloud based services to improve business tasks.
Creating solutions that map processes and increase productivity is a moving target. So what do we think will be the five key enterprise mobility trends for 2020 ?

1. IoT- the Internet of Things

It’s everywhere! a system that connects all your devices that can exchange data with each other through human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction. Statista predicts the installed base of IoT devices is forecast to grow to almost 31 billion worldwide by 2020, and 75 billion by 2025.

Using IoT can bring many benefits to businesses. Reduced cost, next generation real time tracking, and seamless work flow. All of which create a more efficient and smooth running business

Some Companies have already introduced the use of the IoT within their warehouse systems. Amazon the global e-commerce giant have made significant movement in warehouse management automation. They have 493 warehouses covering around 180 square million feet globally. 100,000 robots are in use so far.

Another sector that can make use of the IoT is healthcare. According to Frost and Sullivan, the internet of medical things could be expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 26.2% and reach $ 72,000 million by 2021.

Gartner believes that the providers of Internet of Things platforms are currently fragmented and would benefit greatly from cobbling together a better ecosystem where data is shared more broadly. 451 Research believe that at the moment a relatively small number – Nineteen percent of companies are using, planning to use or will be evaluating the use of IoT in their organisations.

2. 5G

4.5 billion Mobile users worldwide are subscribed to 4G data plans, Ericsson predicts that figure to rise to 7.7 billion by 2021. But now we have the introduction of 5G. Tele companies everywhere are now testing out fifth generation mobile networks.

A comparison between 4G and 5G, would see users accessing 4G networks to download one feature- length film in eight minutes. The New York times reported users with 5G connections would be able to complete the same activity in fewer than five seconds.

5G will enable developments in lots of industries and will leverage the adoption of IoT. A hugely significant one being healthcare. Qualcomm imagines a future in which patients who may need extra monitoring, such as a person who recently suffered a heart attack, could wear special sensors to track their vitals at home- if something goes wrong hospitals or doctors can act quickly and effectively due to the speed of 5G. Market research future projects that the global telemedicine market will increase at a compound annual growth rate of 16.5 percent from 2017 to 2023.

3. UEM Adoption Will Accelerate

Increasing numbers of IoT endpoints including mobile devices are spurring businesses to secure them more businesses seeing the benefit of Unified Endpoint Management.

Recent polling by Enterprise Mobility Exchange suggests UEM adoption reached 25% during 2019. In large part due to the continued adoption of Windows 10 as one of the key Enterprise Mobility Trends for 2020

4. Further Decline of the Desktop

Technology is forever advancing and is becoming more mobile. Seems like Desktops other than for gaming are in serious decline.  IDC predicts that desktops will face a year over year decline of 1.9%. Whilst Notebooks/Mobile Workstations and Detachable Tablets are expected to take 53% of all Personal computer shipments by 2023

5. Microsoft Surface Sales Continue to Get Stronger

The Surface is becoming a more common sight in Enterprise deployments. From a rough start in 2013 Microsoft have managed to build a portfolio of devices that combine what users expect from a mobile device whilst addressing the productive goals of an enterprise project. Although the first Quarter of the current financial year  showed a slight dip due to a large scale product refresh Surface sales year on year over the last four years are growing at a compounded rate of around 20%+per year.

Microsoft do not spilt out sales by division but it is thought that the Surface is now accounts for around $2 billion of Microsoft’s $33 billion quarterly turnover.

Proven Reasons Mobile Device Management Makes Sense in Education

Device Security

Use our products to prevent misuse of mobile devices deployed in the classroom for students. We allow you to password protect device settings so that students do not access unauthorized applications and websites. By doing so, teachers, school authorities and parents get peace of mind and children are focused completely on learning. The device can be set to be used exactly the way you want for applications and content. This will help you protect your devices from malware, giving them longer life and better performance. Web filtering technology for responsible web browsing in the classroom.

Diagnostics and Reporting

Kids are usually not careful about using the devices wisely and they may keep it on unnecessarily which will lead the battery to die quickly.  We help you ensure that your devices are always fit for use. Monitor health of devices, get alerts and notifications when thresholds get crossed. Improve process efficiency by collecting data and performing diagnostics. Generate reports for usage patterns including data and keep your expenses in check.

Device Deployment and Management

42Gears provides easy mass configuration options so that your devices can be set up in no time. After deployment, managing these devices is simple and easy with a centralized web console. All devices can be tracked and monitored in real time for their movement and use. This will also ensure that devices are easily found, if misplaced or stolen by kids. Wiping data, pushing software and taking control of device can all be done remotely, saving your precious time. Kiosk Mode for primary learners and special education applications.

Support and Maintenance

We help you maintain and support large number of devices deployed across an educational institution with ease. With our product you can remotely take control of a device and provide real time technical support, so that there is no interruption in the learning process of students. We let you group your devices and schedule maintenance activities like scans and software upgrades.  We support iOS, Android and Microsoft Windows devices. Our ready to deploy Microsoft Surface tablet bundles come with a rugged case glass screen protector and asset tag all fitted and ready to deploy. More.
