HokuApps, one of the fastest growing Enterprise Mobility Solutions provider, brings to you the trends and challenges that have dominated the global business and technology environment in 2018. The reason for this is the acceptance of technology as a key enabler in making consumer life easier. This evolving paradigm is urging businesses to change their tendencies towards digital revolution.

A major trend that is observed globally is the enhancement of business streamlining along with employee productivity. Enterprise mobility Solutions doesn’t just enable employees to go mobile but also the free movement of corporate data within the business circle and communication with the end-user. For this very reason, Enterprise Mobility Solutions is a top priority for more than 73% of businesses in the APAC region, USA, and Canada. With the expected acceptance of enterprise mobility solutions by organizations globally, the growth is expected to reach $140 billion in the next couple of years.

Kay Parker, Sales Readiness Evangelist at HokuApps, elucidates, “The business environment is moving towards a state of fluidity where boundaries are being broken down towards creating ethical ecosystems. However, the difference between success and failure is the availability of technology and its acceptance by the organization from within. Technology as an enabler can only a success if business takes a top-down approach.”

The shift in policy can alter businesses from within, which percolates right down to the end-user. And the end-user is in that fluid space where they are looking for solutions that are customized to their changing demands. However, Kay elucidates that this is easier said than done.

“A major problem that businesses are facing is technology crunch. CXOs are short on time and there is more pressure on them to deliver. At the same time, risk factors have to be considered which cannot in any way hamper productivity. In addition to streamlining processes and improving employee delivery, enterprise mobility solutions need to unlock data silos so that the demand meets their expectations."

A recent publication by Garner suggests that migration to the cloud can solve the technology crunch. As cloud services improve with constantly evolving high-grade security features, these services become budget friendly with newer app development technologies. Enterprise mobility solutions to security challenges can be solved with 256-bit SSL encryption, which companies like HokuApps provide.

However, all this is not enough without a helping hand from the artificial intelligence which helps in predictive analytics and machine learning techniques that shorten business decision-making process. The ‘smart app’ is the trendsetter in this year and will be one in the next.

Kay opines, “AI and predictive data analysis have been accepted by the masses. Just look at Cortana and Siri offered by the two most popular operating systems. You can use your phone to control security, lighting, connect all home smart devices. Your customers want the same with your businesses. And there’s no reason why new platforms like HokuApps cannot reduce the crunch with enterprise mobility apps.

HokuApps uses a low code platform that creates apps from pre-built templates and modules. This saves app creation time while providing industry-best security and AI features. The current era of business is moving into a ‘smart device’ era.” The smart device era brings out new paradigms to business operations, where cutting-edge technology drives businesses to adopt newer strategies where the enterprise and enterprise mobility solutions work as co-developers in creating the biggest impact on the business.

Add to this scenario the growth of the Internet of Things and opportunities to evolve rise multifold. To adapt to these opportunities and their accompanying challenges, enterprises need to apply enterprise mobility apps to make sure that they are enabled by technology that is fast, agile, provides predictive analysis and is fluid enough to match the Internet of Things devices.
