Thumb devices2

Many companies are implementing the concept of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) as smartphone ownership increases heavily among consumers. BYOD refers to employees using personal devices for business-related activities by integrating them with a company’s software, hardware and networks.

A digital wallet is an electronic device that enables the user to make e-commerce transactions. However, with the advent of the mobile phone, and the sheer determination of smartphone companies such as Apple, they have become even more personalised. For example, the latest Apple mobile phones with the e-wallet feature come bundled with security features such as fingerprint recognition for login verification and a detailed profile. In consequence, a user can even verify his age at a bar using his or her digital wallet.

Matrix42, one of the leading software experts in the field of workplace management, find fault with German companies as to their flexibility in the context of modern workplace design. Exaggerated security concerns towards IT and employees are knocking out chances. Also, the expense factor at German companies is overemphasized and bears no relation to potential productivity improvement.

Modern working is characterized by mobility. Employees are able to access their workplace from all over the world. On average, companies provide their employees with 17 business applications for mobile...

Thumb open uri20150421 475075 spqggh

BYOD brings mobility and flexibility into your company. Employees have mobile access to data from everywhere and are able to process them correspondingly. But, how to access these data? Either via VPN, which tremendously limits mobility through up- and download latency times, or one uses Cloud services.

For IT-departments, this means both dealing with the security risks BYOD brings along and administrating a secure Cloud solution. However, not every company wants to relocate its data into the Cloud, or that is to say, one seeks to avoid distributed data storage.

The considerably extended deployment of mobile terminals has brought companies` networks on the brink of their capacity. The mobility of employees has in fact been fostered, but as early as 2015 , a capacity of 80% of the WLANs will prove insufficient as to meeting the requirements of current applications.

Simultaneously, projections assume a volatile rise of amount of data generated by mobile terminals in companies. Whereas their share rested with 26% still in...

Mobile terminals constitute a double-edged sword. One the one hand, users like the flexibility those devices offer.
