Dec 06, 2021 | 42Gears Team
With the use of mobile and smart devices in the workplace rising steadily, managing these devices has become challenging. Enterprise mobility management (EMM) makes managing such devices easy and effortless. However, adopting an enterprise mobility solution is not the only solution; it’s equally important for companies to stay updated on the latest trends. Understanding and adopting the latest enterprise mobility trends can help companies thrive and gain a competitive advantage.
In this blog, we will talk about the latest enterprise mobility trends that will rule in 2022. These trends are expected to help organizations increase efficiency while improving business processes.
1. 5G Network
As businesses embrace 5G technology, they also need to redesign their enterprise mobility strategies. 5G offers many benefits, such as better connectivity, low latencies, increased data rates (up to 10 Gbps), and most importantly, reduces energy consumption. Though 5G has yet to become mainstream, companies need to prepare for the changes it brings in its wake.
2. Wi-Fi Edition 6
Another trend that will impact EMM in 2022 is Wi-Fi 6. Organizations are now focusing more on remote work in the wake of the pandemic. And to work remotely, the workforce demands better and faster connectivity that can seamlessly work with different video conferencing platforms and cloud computing systems. This new Wi-Fi edition fulfills all their needs, and in addition promises higher network speed and optimum battery usage.
These days, organizations allow employees to bring or use their personal devices for work. This not only helps companies to save their hardware and software costs, but also enhances employees’ productivity and engagement.
In order to deploy the BYOD model in your organization, you need to enroll employee devices into an MDM solution and configure them as required. However, allowing employee devices at work also invites security threats, so it is important to ensure that all their devices are compliant with your enterprise security policies. Additionally, your IT teams should check all the operating systems of such devices and devise strategies to monitor them.
4. AI-based Chatbots
AI(Artificial Intelligence)-based chatbots will rule in 2022. AI-based chatbots have the ability to engage with users in a natural and friendly manner. Such bots can help automate processes and even empower teams. The growing popularity of these chatbots will affect the EMM market too. A few EMM vendors have already implemented AI in their products such as 42Gears. Implementing AI chatbots in EMM solutions can not only help simplify EMM interaction, but also help set up an AI chatbot-based alert system that can be integrated with Slack or Skype.
According to a report by Markets and Markets, the global wearable technology market is expected to grow from USD 116.2 billion in 2021 to USD 265.4 million by 2026 with a CAGR of 18% from 2021 to 2026.
As the use of wearables gains momentum, it will change the EMM market for the better. Using wearables in your business may offer many benefits such as improving employee performance by providing them with real-time information and establishing effective communication at the workplace, etc.
Although the emerging technologies mentioned will have a major impact on enterprise mobility in 2022, enterprises must analyze how well such technologies can be integrated with their business models and the impact they will have on overall business performance before choosing one.
