Businesses understand the important role enterprise mobility plays in the digital transformation mix. At the first day of CeBIT 2015 in Germany, one of the largest IT trade shows, a key focus area was enterprise mobility.
Tech giant Samsung Electronics showcased its commitment to the enterprise by launching Samsung Business, which unifies all of Samsung's business solutions under one umbrella spread across healthcare, retail, education, hospitality, finance and transportation sectors. The company also displayed its commitment towards enterprise-based Internet of Things (IoT).
BlackBerry, through its security subsidiary Secusmart, also launched a tablet in partnership with IBM and Samsung, which is clearly targeted towards enterprise and government customers. The Canadian company is trying to leverage its strength in the enterprise space. SecuTABLET, the name of the enterprise launch, will be a high-security tablet making it perfect for its target audience.
A slew of other companies also have offerings in the enterprise mobility space. Quite a lot of the discussions were centered on this focus area.
This should not come as a surprise. Enterprise mobility and BYOD market is expected to exceed $284 billion by 2019. Key drivers of this trend are increasing cloud infrastructure adoption for app stores and mobile data, increasing smartphone adoption, mobile workforce and reduced hardware costs. Businesses will increasingly look at mature service providers as technology partners to lead their enterprise mobility journey.
