Smart Business Owners, Smart Phones

Android in the enterprise

By the year 2015, it is estimated that more than half (55 percent) of smartphones that are used in business will be employee owned. It is about time you begin to consider your BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) plan.

The starting point for this will be figuring out what platform and hardware you want to use for your company smartphones. It is generally accepted that Android phones (as opposed to iPhones) are preferred for business matters. In 2012, manufacturers shipped approximately 136 million Android phones, representing 75 percent of the market share. They are dependable and affordable.

With as many Droid devices you will need to supply an entire workforce, you are going to want an android device management network. One third of all employees who use a personal mobile device for work say that the data of their company is not encrypted or secure. By employing an Android security model, you can ensure that your data is in good hands.

Android management means you are in control. Managing mobile devices is useful for keeping up to date with installed applications, securing and managing company data, managing passwords and restricting access to vulnerable information should a mobile device become lost or stolen. Android in the enterprise is extremely valuable, but needs to be handled on a large scale.

There is one more aspect of android device management that you should know of. That is the convenience it provides. Your company may already, like one quarter of all companies, allow a BYOD policy, but have no management system in place. Seeing as 70 percent of employees regularly check their company email regularly as it is, why not make this (and other forms of after hours work involvement) easier to accomplish? Android device management is convenience manifested.

Overall, I would say that the most important component of an android device management network would have to be intelligence. Incorporating Android device management into the way you do business is a smart way to make more money by increasing productivity, cutting unnecessary costs, and securing your data.

    I prefer Android over Apple, personally. I think it is much easier to use, and much more reliable.
