Given the current state of the corporate sector, mobility isn’t a luxury; it’s a necessity. This has resulted in the rise of BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) culture as Forrester claims that 25% of employees worldwide will bring personalized apps to help simplify their workload, even if told otherwise!
Although apps simplify daily work management for employees, they do pose a significant challenge to your IT team as they’re faced with a myriad of security and management issues. Furthermore, ensuring cross platform security is no easy task which complicates things even more for your IT department.
Because of all these reasons, more and more companies are turning to Mobile Application Management (MAM) to guarantee security. Here’s why MAM matters so much in today’s day and age.
1.Helps Protect Corporate Data:
Given the fact that resources can be accessed from any device, IT teams have their work cut out ahead of them to restrict unauthorized access. In fact, if numbers posted by Gartner are to be believed, nearly 20% of BYOD programs are bound to fail because IT programs enforce harsh restrictions on their employees to ensure the safety of sensitive data.
The best thing about mobile application management is the fact that it helps protect corporate data. By providing custom apps to your employees you can easily hide sensitive information behind firewalls and restrict your employees from accessing them. This allows you to better protect confidential data without imposing unneeded restrictions on your employees.
2.Enables Employees to Perform Better:
There’s no denying the fact that sound mobile application management enables your employees to perform better. As there are no precautionary restrictions on your employees, they can easily use apps to carry out the workload that they’re assigned.
Furthermore, competent IT teams can analyze the tasks certain employees usually perform (such as scheduling preventive maintenance or inventory control) and provide them with apps that can streamline these processes. This results in increased operational efficiency.
Mobile Application Management is also a promising venture as it significantly increases productivity. Right off the bat, you can make things easier for your IT department as MAM effectively reduces the application maintenance burden on them. This allows them to perform at optimum levels without allocating time or resources on employee surveillance.
Furthermore, there’s numerical data that directly relates increased productivity to the implementation of mobile application management. A study conducted by Dell states that more than 66.6% of businesses saw their productivity soar after they allowed their employees to use applications to complete the tasks that they were assigned. A lot of this has to do with the fact that employees can use apps (pre-existing or otherwise) to complete tasks that would’ve taken them hours to perform manually!
In a nutshell, mobile application management can do wonders for businesses. It can increase productivity and make a workforce much more efficient than ever before.
