Why You Need It: Enterprise Mobility & IoT

Created at July 8, 2022

These terms can appear very “techy,” but you’d be surprised at how they’re being used all around you, and the world, at this very moment. Enterprise mobility (EM) and IoT have created an entirely new way to store and share data–also allowing for the new, extremely popular way of working: remotely. 

We’re here to explain how it all works, why you should care, and what possibilities it can create for your business. 

Enterprise Mobility 

What is it? 

Enterprise mobility, also known as business mobility, is technology, policies, and processes that allow businesses to offer remote working options while still giving employees access to data and cloud technology. 

Enterprise mobility is constantly evolving and changing as the world of technology does. This allows for the process and products to improve, while still maintaining effective security of assets. 

What are the benefits?

The benefits of enterprise mobility are more relevant now than ever. Before experiencing a pandemic, remote and remote hybrid options seemed few and far between. Now it’s becoming the new status quo.  

EM allows for the flexibility of remote work and doing so securely. The efficiency, paired with the flexibility, creates a list of pros. Employees are given a choice, which can improve job satisfaction and increase productivity. Also on that list, many businesses have reported decreased spending when implementing an enterprise mobility plan.   

Internet of Things (IoT)

What is it?

Internet of Things is a network of connected devices and the technology that facilitates communication between the devices themselves and the cloud. 

You’re probably much more aware of these systems than you think. Examples of IoT devices include smart cars that monitor driving behavior or vehicle health and smart homes with devices like smart thermostats or alarm systems.

When this technology is scaled to a larger size, these systems can monitor, maintain, and connect a company’s entire network.

What are the benefits?

Along with supporting an entire network, IoT can also increase security. 

Continuous monitoring of the digital and physical infrastructure can optimize performance and efficiency, as well as reduce safety risks.
