    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.
