Enterprise mobility trends in 2017

The future of enterprise mobility is shaping up to include considerations for Bring Your Own Device (BYOD), user experience design (UX), and all kinds of enterprise mobility management (EMM) platforms. Ultimately, though, what drives workers to use (or discard) a mobile app for work?

Global enterprise mobility trends in 2017
Now that we’re one quarter of the way into 2017, we’re starting to see which trends survived 2016 and how they might change throughout the year ahead. Food service and retail companies are finding that mobile solutions are great ways to keep customers happy, and there are many mobile strategies to choose from. Allowing BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) is a common trend, but requires keeping apps secure at all times.

Habit-forming technology: The future of enterprise app development
In the not-too-distant future, most software interactions will take place on mobile devices. Enterprises are recognizing that more and more employees would like at least some of their work functions to be accessible via mobile, and so they are responding by enabling workflows and other processes from these devices.

Evaluate the three EMM security options: MDM, MAM, and MIM
IT administrators have to consider many factors when implementing a security strategy for mobile initiatives. Not only must they protect company data, but they have to consider whether their employees are restricted to only company-owned devices. App management, device management, and identity management are all major aspects of mobile security, and each plays into a general EMM strategy.

Employees are unhappy with enterprise mobile apps [slideshow]
Recent surveys show that despite high demand, enterprise mobile apps aren’t making the grade when it comes to satisfying workers. People have high expectations for performance and user interface, based on the bar set by consumer apps. Therefore, enterprise apps must be created with user experience in mind to keep workers engaged and happy.
