Data Management

Tip 4: Learn what data is important, and what can be left behind.

As previously noted, wearables can offer companies more access to data than ever before. But not all of this data will be helpful for the enterprise. Companies should work with and train IT managers to learn what content is important to monitor and store, and what can be discarded. This will not only help put the data to meaningful use, but also avoid massive digital stockpiles of useless information.

With the steady increase of wearables being used within the workplace, organizations need to understand how these devices will fit in as a part of wider corporate and mobile strategies, BYOD policies, and how they can be most effectively utilized to increase productivity.

While there are clear benefits to introducing wearables into enterprise functions – such as in training/on-boarding procedures or implementing health care rewards plans – wearables can also come with issues concerning employee privacy and maintaining company data security.

In this slideshow, MOBI, a leading provider of enterprise mobility services, provides five tips to help companies successfully incorporate wearables into the workplace.
