    Mobile Devices Top Desktops

    The number of mobile devices (including tablets) will surpass desktops for the first time this year, which means IT will have to think mobile-first to support users and customers.

According to Google CEO Larry Page, we no longer live in a mobile-first world. We live in a mobile-only one. Given the dominance of mobility and the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) movement in the enterprise, IT organizations will have to stay on top of the following mobility trends to watch in 2015, recently released by DMI. The trends include insights into the next generation of mobile apps, the Internet of things (IoT), phablets (a cross between a smartphone and a tablet), wearable devices and app development. With regard to the last item, organizational leaders will push tech teams to take on a greater number of projects to equip employees with more business tools. And these initiatives are expected to grow increasingly complex in nature. "We live in a mobile world that is changing at an unparalleled pace, straining the capacity of many enterprises to keep up with the growth," says Jay Sunny Bajaj, DMI founder and CEO. "[Enterprises need] an end-to-end mobility solution that enhances evolving, all-encompassing strategies and tactics, from mobility management to app development to omni-channel implementation and everything in between."
