With Apple’s announcement this past month about the Apple Watch there is a lot of talk and speculation of what the future will hold for wearables. We are already hearing a lot of consumer applications for the Apple Watch, but what will this mean for the enterprise?
Will Consumer Devices Come to the Enterprise?
As it stands, a lot of the features of the watch have limited use to the enterprise crowd. It may be some time before we see office workers sporting Google Glass or other wearables to perform job functions. Even so, now is a good time for IT to at least start considering how wearable technology can be integrated into their organization and where it can add the most value. Rather than be caught off guard and racing to catch up—as has often been the case when office workers start using their own tools and devices for work—IT professionals now have a chance to look at potential areas of value for the organization.
