Bring your own device (BYOD) is a practice that has been around for years. Computer Business review estimates that 760 million tablets will be sold worldwide by the end of 2016, with more than 30 per cent of those in the enterprise. What is more, it is predicted that in the future tablets are more likely to be recycled among users, rather than scrapped, as it is with desktops.
It is unavoidable that mobility will continue to be one of game-changing elements of business. Any organization that intends to stay on the surface will need to develop infrastructure solutions that support and integrate the mobile onslaught. Some of the predictions are:
Mobility as a stimulant
Mobility is something people crave for, in their private as well as working environments.
Wave of business mobile apps
The year 2015 will inevitably bring more native applications for mobile devices. It is not new that enterprise applications are the IT life force behind any organization.
Multiple identity issue
Enterprise applications definitely require higher level of security; users won’t be thrilled if they had to remember several passwords at once. Ensuring that employees are not overloaded with logon information details is something companies will need to work out with their cloud providers.
The year of BYOIoT
In this year, we can expect the rise of BYOIoT, which means that businesses will need to alleviate their security protocols to the level that is suitable for dealing with rapid introduction of many new user devices, as well as introduction new policies to govern them.
One of serious problems with mobile devices in 2014 were numerous malware attacks that were targeting specifically the emerging mobile platforms. This will be another task for organizations if they want to ensure that the mobile security of their devices is moving along with the new threats.
Evolved data control
It is inevitable that data control moves in the direction that organizations could only access the corporate dataon an employee’s device.
If more mobile devices are introduced in an organization, more network bandwidth will be consumed. This is the reason why ultrafast network performance will be one of the key points in BYOD in 2015.
Stagnation of BYOD
As an unexpected exception to other trends, it is believed that BYOD as such will not grow in 2015. One way or another, the existing demand and total security are still the main tasks that infrastructure solutions will have to solve.
