The use of smartphones and portable devices at the workplace has grown exponentially. Over the years, organizations have adopted a ‘remote-friendly working culture’. The current pandemic has only accelerated the process. Employees seek a truly seamless work environment and capabilities that helps the be as productive at home as they are at office.
Managing Mobility at the Workplace
As more and more organizations adopt mobile work (via BYOD, WFH policies etc.), it becomes important to monitor and manage these devices. Tracking device performance helps organizations understand where the inefficiencies lie and enables them to address those issues quickly.
Mobility Solutions could be the Answer
According to International Data Corporation (IDC) research, global spending on mobility solutions is forecast to reach $1.8 trillion in 2022 – a clear indication of organizations understanding the need to provide a truly effective remote work environment (that is secure and effective). Meanwhile, Gartner too predicts a 70% increase in mobility management solutions by 2024.
Increase Visibility with Asset Tracking
Asset tracking becomes particularly important for security and compliance purposes. When employees are remote, it becomes challenging to extend IT support based on their location. A real-time mechanism to automatically scan, discover and identify the organization’s devices helps keep track of potential issues with devices, and address them proactively. It also helps employees to work seamlessly across networks and schedule crucial operations such as discovery scans to run automatically.
Adopt an Inventory Management Solution
When devices are spread across various locations (and not limited to the physical office), an inventory management solution can come in handy. To adapt to the flexible workspace, organizations should consider adopting a ready-to-use asset management solution that is quick to deploy and helps track and manage laptop/desktop information, including real-time change detection.
Ensure Software Compliance
With GDPR and CCPA being enforced in the past few years, organizations are under pressure to manage their systems (and underlying data) more closely. The risk of data leakage or theft can cost organizations millions in regulatory fines.
A centralized compliance metric reporting system through a visualized, intuitive dashboard can be very effective. For instance, it can help determine the number of software installations available in your network. In case of an unauthorized installation, IT teams would be alerted immediately, thus reducing compliance risks.
Implement a Modular Solution
While mobility management is important, it must not prove to be an expensive affair. Picking a modular solution helps address specific requirements while keeping costs in check.
Mobility management promises to hold even more significance in the years to come. With changes in work patterns as well as compliance requirements, organizations will benefit by taking steps towards putting a process in place.
