Businesses are constantly being bombarded with the latest mobile technology news. Just this week, Apple unveiled the iPad Mini 3 and iPad Air 2 — both set to be released by the end of this month — just a few weeks after it launched the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Apple's four new mobile devices are just a segment of the overall market, as Microsoft, Samsung, Google and BlackBerry are all hard at work preparing new gadgets or mobile operating systems to launch in the coming weeks and months. Meanwhile, the wearable technology industry, which is still very much in its infancy, figures to get a major boost early in 2015 when the Apple Watch is released. These all seem like great opportunities for businesses to capitalize on innovative technologies, but many organizations will need assistance fulfilling their mobile strategies.
An article in Enterprise Apps Tech addressed this issue, which is particularly important in multi-national firms with more complex mobile strategies. Integrating new mobile technology into regular business workflow is challenging enough without considering factors unique to specific organizations like size, location or industry. That's why Nicholas McQuire, the article's author, suggests outsourcing mobile management to a third party MSP or VAR.
"To meet these challenges, we've seen a growing maturity in managed mobility support services offered by service providers," he writes. "These services encompass device deployment and logistics, expense management and order provisioning, implementation of enterprise mobility management software, application development, managed Wi-Fi, help-desk and technical and business consulting services. The benefits of these services compared with a do-it-yourself approach include reductions in time, cost and complexity as well as enabling enterprises to focus on more strategic tasks."
To meet the demands of their customers, VARs and MSPs must find the right individuals who understand the current mobile landscape. VAR Staffing can help by recruiting these individuals.
