Why Customers Will Benefit From Samsung’s Investment in Enterprise-Grade Mobile Solutions
In Constellation’s surveys, mobile enablement continues to be the top priority for CXOs. Unfortunately, concerns about enterprise-grade capabilities continue to hamper mobile adoption. Enterprise-class security, field-ready ruggedness, battery life, alternative user interfaces, payments and mobile wallets, dedicated enterprise sales and support, and industry-vertical focus top the list of barriers.
Samsung unveiled its flagship Galaxy Note7 device on August 2 in New York City. The new device showed a number of improvements that continue to win over customers who seek an enterprise-grade mobile solution.
The Bottom Line: Consider Samsung for Enterprise Mobility Short Lists
CXOs seeking enterprise-grade mobile solutions have seen improvements across the board as device manufacturers slowly cater to the demand from enterprises and organizations balancing out the consumerization trends and enterprise requirements. While still not at the level of traditional PC manufacturers, investments in enterprise solutions have seen improvements in management teams, product offerings, service levels and key features. Samsung’s efforts to win over the enterprise over the past three years have shown significant improvements that warrant Constellation’s recommendation for short list consideration.
