Impact of Connected Devices on Enterprise Mobility Apps

IIoT is pushing digitization in enterprises by enabling efficient device-to-device and M2M connectivity. The device connectivity has become a major trend among enterprises in the recent years with enterprise mobility majorly adopted by manufacturing, healthcare, BFSI, urban transport, retail and other industries.

IIoT generates huge volumes of data in an enterprise which improves the quality of operations and offers real-time monitoring of a plant. Thus, it promotes efficiency and productivity in a business unit with scalable and real-time data management services. Enterprise mobility applications have become popular in the recent years to meet the increased demand for data visualization and management. These applications are mostly used while implementing mobile backend-as-a-service, fully-managed apps, and software development life cycles.

Technology companies, such as, Blackberry, Akamai, IBM and others are largely focusing on offering M2M connectivity solutions and enterprise mobility applications for a variety of operating platforms. Enterprises are adopting mobility apps at a significant rate in the recent years as they are considered to be key strategic elements in a business.

Drivers for growing adoption for enterprise mobility applications among enterprises:

  • Increased demand for managed mobility services across different lines of business
  • Increased adoption of mobile devices and cloud-based applications among enterprises
  • Growing penetration of enterprise wearable devices, such as smart glasses, AR/VR devices and others
  • Growing demand for omni-channel initiatives across industries

Enterprise mobile apps were largely confined to improve an organizational efficiency and performance by enabling deeper integration with device operating systems. However, in the recent years the advancements happening in the enterprise mobility space are allowing applications to track data and offer insights even when operating offline. Which means, enterprise apps will operate using device elements, such as camera and microphone, and it will affect the output power level of a device. This is pushing the need for better code optimisations and resource consideration, otherwise this will impact the processing capabilities and battery use.
