Work from Anywhere (WFA), Hybrid Working, and Unified Endpoint Management (UEM)
We’ve all heard of the Power of 3 – the principle that suggests that a trio of ideas or events is more effective and even more satisfying than other number combinations. That’s why if you’ve followed our September and October blogs, you’ve noticed a trend. We started talking about how important it is to begin 2021 planning today, emphasizing securing Work-From-Anywhere (WFA) environments. Part 2 of the series dove into the implications of a hybrid working environment. We suggested businesses consider thermal monitoring equipment to make work environments as safe as possible for those returning to physical office spaces.
So, where does that leave us? In our opinion, the third tent pole in the larger conversation around the future of work centers around a highly effective mobile ecosystem. We covered a whole bunch of reasons why in our first two blogs of the series. We also believe systematizing the mobile ecosystem is critical because of the massive influx of mobile devices in the industry today. That’s why leading companies are no longer separating their mobile ecosystems from the rest of the business. Instead, it’s a significant shift in thinking – mobile is the business! It may seem like a simple concept, but, done right, it’s transformative.
At the heart of the transformation is mobility management or Unified Endpoint Management (UEM). UEM is an approach to managing and securing desktop computers, laptops, IoT, smartphones, virtual machines, servers, etc., cohesively from a single console. Following this approach spans beyond securing WFA or in-office environments and encompasses all endpoints across the organization. What other critical characteristics make up an effective UEM strategy and mobility framework? Read on, friends.
By setting up consistent, secure, and repeatable processes for managing all elements connected to devices (mobile or not), apps, content, and data used across the enterprise, companies will become more competitive, regardless of how the future of work unfolds. At Carrier Solutions, we feel mobility management and UEM are critical third-pillars in shaping the future of work. Relying on a single management interface to optimize how you leverage mobile devices in the enterprise will be a game-changer for 2021. It’s a progression and a natural step that can help organizations of all sizes become more competitive while keeping operations lean and flexible.
