Smartphones are making inroads everywhere. They are no longer treated as simple communication devices; rather they are now increasingly being used as multitasking devices capable of performing complex tasks with meticulous ease and perfection. The efficacies of smartphones have got a major boost thanks to the vast repository of apps. But not all apps manage to make it big.

Advances in technology have made it easier than ever to manage both your personal and professional life. Having a smartphone on hand at all times is no longer a novelty—almost two-thirds of the population own one, according to a 2015 Pew Research Study. And smartphone owners are using them for more than just making phone calls and sending texts. Smartphones are used heavily to get online, or download applications specifically created to manage every facet of life.
The mobile revolution has transformed the way that businesses get work done. Distributed teams and remote individuals need applications that are available any time and on all of their devices. This new model of collaboration and productivity has created a high demand for the latest “it” career in tech: custom app developer.
At Hayat Communications, we design, supply, build and manage diverse spectrum services in fixed line and wireless networks, with offices and major activities in Kuwait, UAE, KSA, Qatar, Bahrain, Oman, India and Iraq. Supporting our field workers across such a large geographic area can be difficult. For years, we had been doing it with an ad-hoc set of tools, and didn’t have an easy way to coordinate the work of our people in the field – or tie them back to centralized databases. We needed to improve our efficiency and field productivity.
Technology is improving each day. One of the technologies that have had a significant impact on people’s lives is the mobile phone technology. Using a mobile app while driving is forbidden by the law. However, some apps have been developed that can be used to make one a better driver. Below is a list of some of these apps.
Mobile communication is playing a bigger role in modern businesses. However, many business owners are still coming to terms with this relatively new technology. Before you rush in and implement a new mobile business strategy, there are important factors you should consider first.
Cell phones are so much more than an easy way to keep in touch with loved ones. Smart phones are a pocket-sized computer that’s capable of everything from browsing the internet, to finding your location through GPS, and even helping you complete business-related tasks from a distance. Unfortunately, as convenient as the cell phone is, it’s all rife with possible security risks – particularly in regards to your personal data.
It seems like it wasn’t that long ago when people and businesses alike were excitedly talking about the possibilities and potential that accompanied the introduction of 4G networks. There’s little doubt that 4G has transformed how people use mobile devices and take advantage of internet connections, but already many experts are dreaming of what lies ahead with the fifth generation of mobile networks: 5G. Verizon may introduce the first 5G network as early as next year, while Samsung may show off its own 5G capabilities at the 2018 Winter Olympic Games.
“Going mobile” seems to be the mantra of modern day enterprises, with 63 percent of them firmly believing that mobility leads to competitive advantage. Their belief is not without cause, as a recent survey by Nielson reports that 93 percent of consumers who research products via mobile go on to make the purchase, while 55 percent of them make the purchase within an hour. If this wasn’t reason enough for businesses to jump on the mobility bandwagon, high operational efficiency coupled with increased employee productivity and customer loyalty paint a compelling picture.
This paper explores the implications of cloud, big data and analytics, mobile, social business and the evolving IT security landscape on data center and enterprise networks.
Mobile devices are quickly becoming the primary devices among enterprises. Their great user experience, increased computing capabilities, explosion of apps, and always-on connectivity combined with agility, make them ideal replacements for PCs. Mobility these days, is not just a tool enabling employees access to email and a handful of corporate applications, but rather a tool to improve employee productivity and ease of working by enabling them with real-time connectivity to customers, partners, suppliers and workers.
Mobile devices are almost ubiquitously used by employees in today’s workplace. These devices have the power to vastly increase productivity, connectivity and the ability to collaborate, but they also present significant challenges in maintaining privacy and security. Employees can easily access corporate networks and sensitive enterprise data with just a flick or a swipe – whether they are using their own device (BYOD) or a corporate-owned device.
No longer a catchphrase or a vague notion, the Internet of Things is in full swing. McKinsey & Company estimates that the IoT has a total potential economic impact of $3.9 trillion to $11.1 trillion a year by 2025. Manufacturers are already spending considerable amounts of money on mobilizing the enterprise, including connecting employees, products, services and machines/vehicles. Digging deeper, we can see what functions in the business they’ve tackled first.
E-commerce continues its rapid growth and ever shifting shape. In 2016, we are likely to see a stronger focus on customer experience and personalization, according to some e-commerce experts that IT Briefcase has spoken to.
