Remote Work in Hybrid Cloud Environments Takes Center Stage as Enterprise Mobility Market Projected to Reach $63.3 Billion by 2026

Leostream Corporation
highlighted strong market demand for secure enterprise mobility solutions,
driven in part by the rising work from home trend, larger growth opportunities
in BYOD, growing real-time data access requirements and increasing cyberattacks
in remote work environments. Supporting a
mobile workforce is a corporate priority for organizations of all sizes, but
that requires solutions uniquely optimized for these environments. To support enterprise
mobility, Leostream is providing five key strategies for ensuring more
collaborative and productive workforces in 2024.

According to
MarketsandMarkets, the global Enterprise Mobility Management Market size is
projected to reach USD 63.3 Billion in 2026, at a CAGR of 25.1% during the
forecast period, 2020-2026.

Enterprise mobility is
increasingly vital for enhancing business productivity, as it caters to the
unique needs of a diverse and mobile workforce. This is essential because the
requirements and tasks of mobile employees vary significantly across different
organizations. Traditional, monolithic legacy solutions, like those offered by
VMware, often fall short in providing the necessary flexibility and features to
accommodate the full spectrum of user needs. This limitation can lead
organizations to adapt their practices to fit the constraints of these tools,
rather than leveraging the right technology for their workforce mobility

The tools a mobile workforce
requires must enable collaboration with colleagues, potentially around the
world. And, they must be able to do all of that while still ensuring the
security of corporate data and resources. The shake-up in the market due to the
Broadcom acquisition of VMware makes now the perfect time for organizations to
re-examine the systems and processes they put in place to support workforce
mobility and build a better path forward. Below are some key considerations to
ensure success.

– Maintain a definitive list of the device types (e.g., Windows
laptops, macOS devices, Android, etc.) in order to design a workforce mobility
solution that provides access to every user at any time, by supporting the
devices they are most likely to have with them at any moment.

corporate resources
– Compile a related list of corporate
resources that the mobile workforce requires access to in order to perform
their work. The types of applications, running on different operating systems
and manipulating different data sets, have a profound impact on the design of a
workforce mobility solution and the technologies used to optimize it.
Solutions, such as VMware Horizon, lack support for connecting users to macOS
resources, for example.

Define a
cloud strategy
-Look for ways to optimize the workforce mobility environment by
leveraging the cloud. Taking a hybrid cloud approach to workforce mobility
brings benefits both to user performance and cost optimization. The public
cloud provides global computing resources that can improve the end-user
experience for a mobile workforce by lowering the latency of their connection.
Public clouds also provide redundancy and capacity on-demand, making them more
efficient and cost-effective ways to build disaster recovery and business
continuity solutions in support of workforce mobility.  

application performance
– Ensure adequate application
performance by considering the system on which the application runs (for
example, what instance type will be leveraged in a public cloud), the
technology used to connect the user to that application (the display protocol
incorporated into the environment), and the solution users leverage for remote
access. Look for security gateways that replace legacy VPN solutions in order
to optimize performance.

– Support collaboration for a mobile workforce by leveraging a
display protocol that includes session shadowing capabilities and a remote
access tool that simplifies the process of connecting to collaborative
sessions. Features such as these allow teams that are spread across the globe
to interact as if they were in the same room. 

Find a
tool that simplifies IT
– Simplify IT tasks related to
managing a mobile workforce, by an IT staff who may be mobile, themselves. Look
for a mobile workforce or remote access solution that can manage all of the
client devices, remote resources, and on-premises and cloud technologies from a
single pane-of-glass, and that provides features that simplify Day 2 IT tasks.
The modern workforce is a mobile workforce. Go beyond supporting workforce
mobility and encourage it, by designing a solution that makes work better for
end-users, IT, and the organization as a whole.

“As we navigate
the evolving landscape of workforce mobility, it’s crucial that organizations
choose solutions that not only support, but also enhance the productivity and
collaboration of their remote teams,” said Karen Gondoly, CEO of Leostream. “We
recognize that traditional, one-size-fits-all approaches are no longer
sufficient. Our focus is on delivering flexible, secure, and efficient
solutions tailored to equip businesses with the right tools for their remote
