The already popular BYOD (bring your own device) trend is expected to more than double by 2021, according to industry analysts.
In 2016, the market size was worth roughly $35 billion. By 2021, it’s expected to grow to about $73 billion.
This growth is due to increased demand from employees and business leaders who desire more access to mobile-first solutions.
As access to enterprise mobility increases, there are three major trends that may have an impact on enterprise mobility in 2017.
1. Renewed IoT growth
It should come as no shock to anyone that the Internet of Things (IoT) will have a dramatic effect on enterprise mobility—it already has in so many ways. While some critics say the IoT market is hyped, there are so many opportunities within IoT that it is practical indisputable how valuable it is.
2. Rise in mobility analytics
Besides the analytics provided by IoT, call details from various carriers will begin to become a more important consideration. This is because they can be data mined to provide useful business analytics.
3. Performance improvement
This year, we’re likely to see an increase in more efficient consumer apps that focus on business. These apps will be more efficient due to faster load times regardless of the level of network connectivity.
