Embrace Wireless Connectivity

Take advantage of wireless access points for the workplace for faster networks as new mobile devices, wireless HVAC controllers, wireless locks, wireless light switches, IP phones, projectors, and other devices continue to take up space in or outside of the office. However, businesses must keep in mind how these new network appliances and the devices that provide network access to them will fit into the company's technology budget.

In today's fast-paced mobile world, more and more small businesses are taking advantage of the cloud. A 2014 survey report shows that use of mobile apps by small businesses increased 65 percent in the previous two years, and over half of the small businesses surveyed use mobile apps.

The reliance on apps naturally translates into increasingly cloud-based workflows for small businesses. This transition isn't without its pain points, however. Unexpected factors such as broken workflows, the cost of infrastructure, and the need for security can create problems, and can contribute to chaos in the IT environment, if not managed correctly. What is a small business with limited resources to do?

In this slideshow, Charles Edge, product manager of Bushel, provides the top six resolutions small businesses should consider for 2016 to help them rein in control over their cloud environment.

Charles Edge is Product Manager at JAMF Software, where he leads Bushel – a mobile device management (MDM) solution designed for small organizations and users with limited IT experience. He holds nearly 20 years experience as a developer, administrator and CTO, and is passionate about helping everyday users manage and make the most of their mobile devices.
