Where Does Enterprise Mobility Go From Here? January 4th, 2022

Where Does Enterprise Mobility Go From Here?

Enterprise mobility adoption continues to increase, and technology is advancing to provide greater productivity, efficiency and worker safety.

From the first time a mobile device and application enabled an employee to break away from a stationary terminal and enter and access data at the source, competitive enterprises realized their processes would never be the same. Enterprise mobility empowers employees to stay connected to vital systems, execute work orders, update inventory, collaborate with team members, and even accept payments wherever they work.

Enterprise mobility took on an even more critical role in 2020 when the pandemic necessitated remote work. Enterprises with mobile deployments and cloud services could keep production going while working at home or from safe social distances. Furthermore, your clients who weren’t prepared kept you busy deploying those systems when temporary closures turned into months-long production disruptions.Honeywell-Mobility-Q3C1-eBook_Mockup-(EN)

But now that 2021 is drawing to a close, what’s next for enterprise mobility? Here are four trends to watch:

  1. More ergonomic devices
    Enterprise mobile devices must be designed for safe use in harsh environments and the computing power to support power-hungry enterprise applications. However, they also have to be practical for employees, especially when used repetitively during an entire shift.

    Fortunately, devices designed for enterprise mobility continue to evolve to enhance usability, comfort, and injury prevention. For example, wearable computers and ring scanners give employees hands-free mobility, improving safety and productivity. Additionally, head-mounted displays can boost performance and accuracy and enable directed tasks such as warehouse picking.

  2. Enhanced performance with 5G
    As 5G service becomes available to more regions, enterprise mobility will have the advantages of faster speeds — up to 10 times faster — and greater capacity to support the growing number of devices connected to the network in a specific area. The 5G network will also enable service providers to facilitate connections between networks in different geographic regions and leverage edge computing, decreasing latency that some users may experience when communicating over great distances. 5G capabilities are key to eliminating barriers to effective IoT systems and enhancing remote and mobile worker productivity.

  3. Support from augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR)
    This year, watch for news of more AR and VR solutions advancing from design and pilots to the mainstream. AR or VR can provide employees with visualizations that overlay their view of the physical world. For example, these technologies can help a new technician tackle a repair job in the field with a diagram or instructions displayed on a headset, keeping hands free to do the job and enabling seasoned techs to leave manuals behind, accessing the information they need with a few clicks. AR and VR can also give a manager in the office a “be there” experience to help evaluate or troubleshoot a situation.
     
  4. Instant insights from artificial intelligence (AI)
    Once you deploy enterprise mobility solutions, you need to manage them. Enterprise mobility management (EMM) solutions give IT administrators the ability to provision and update devices, apply security patches, monitor device location and utilization. In addition, solutions that leverage AI and quickly analyze the massive amounts of data that EMM collects can provide managers with insights in real time when it detects an issue or unusual behavior that could indicate a stolen device or data breach.
