The fourth industrial revolution (I4.0) has been taking place excitingly with the convergence of the physical world and the virtual (digital) world. In which the fundamental driving force behind this revolution is the Internet of Things (IoT) which is developing at an astonishing rate. The potential benefits and growth of IoT seem endless. With IoT, business operations will become smarter, but this time it is quite complicated because it requires millions of mobile devices to ensure constant connectivity. At that time, the problem is that businesses must be more strict in monitoring these devices, ensuring that downtime is minimized and internal information is secure.
Know the challenges of centralized management of mobile devices to find effective solutions. Below are some of the most common problems businesses face:
Loss of control for mobile devices: For businesses, there are many mobile devices such as smartphones, industrial tablets, laptops and even inventory control machines, barcode printers, … in warehouses or scattered in retail stores. Without a centralized management system, it is difficult to know where each device is? What is their condition? Which individual is using? Has the use been effective, or not?
The process of managing devices is time consuming and complex: Because each business does not have only one type of equipment or those devices come from the same supplier, not to mention the quantity. Moreover, each mobile device in the enterprise with different operating systems will have different management methods. This will be a huge challenge to manage all of these devices centrally.
The problem of management costs and equipment downtime: In the event that equipment malfunctions arise, IT will most likely spend a lot of time locating and handling these device failures. Need to wait to send the device to the center or IT must be directly on-site for repair. This entails huge annual IT costs and reduces operating efficiency, leading to a lot of equipment downtime.
Data security: Consider this situation: let’s say a mobile device with one of your top business executives is lost. With essential data at the risk of leaking away, your business could face penalties; you could lose customers, you could face legal trouble.
Two factors place data security among the top enterprise mobility security threats.The first is that data security can be compromised through multiple routes. Everything from unverified wi-fi networks and third-party apps to IoT (Internet of Things) and inadequate security protocols can pose serious security challenges. The second is the scale of damage it can cause. A single compromised device can cause leakage of sensitive data. In addition to data leakage, there is the additional danger that the security attack will disrupt existing processes, cause data loss, or expose personal data.
Automatic calculation and installation time: An enterprise mobile device can be used by many different users. In addition, many businesses today are having trouble installing and deploying applications on hundreds, even thousands of mobile devices for businesses. It can take hours to configure and install the application for each device, ensuring it is suitable for each user’s use.
Over the past two years, the Covid pandemic has given us new challenges and forced businesses to gradually innovate themselves, digitize systems and no industry is an exception. Before the IoT era, the era of using smart devices to serve management and operation in enterprises. However, the challenges listed above are not a small “barrier” for every business.
