Technology that travels with the user is called mobile technology. It consists of computing equipment, portable two-way communication devices, and the networking technology that links them.

Currently, internet-capable gadgets like smartphones, tablets, and watches best represent mobile technology. These are the most recent in a line of devices that also includes two-way pagers, laptop computers, flip phones, GPS navigation systems, and more.

Key capabilities of effective mobile technology

Scalability: It can be expensive to build, administer, and maintain point solutions that don't scale across a company. Apps must be created with attention for business lines, procedures, and technical settings. 

Integration:  Being able to connect logic and data services to the app is essential, whether the logic and data are on premises, in the cloud, or in hybrid configurations. Mobile phones and tablets have a separation between the mobile app and back-end business logic and data services.

Reuse: In 2018, more than 105 billion smartphone apps were downloaded. ⁶Many are suitable for corporate applications or can be integrated with other ones. By utilising the built-in domain and industry expertise, using current apps shortens time to value and increases cost effectiveness.

Cloud-based development: An effective platform for the development, testing, and management of apps is the cloud. Application programming interfaces (API) allow developers to link apps to back-end data while concentrating on front-end features. They can access cognitive and artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities as well as add authentication to strengthen security.

Mobility management: Organization seek to enterprise mobility management (EMM) solutions as mobile technology is implemented to configure devices and apps, track usage and inventories, govern and safeguard data, and support and solve problems.

BYOD: Bring your own device  (BYOD) is an IT policy that permits staff members to access data and systems using personal devices. BYOD may boost productivity, boost employee satisfaction, and reduce costs if it is properly implemented. It also raises issues with security and device management that must be addressed effectively

Security: The intricacy and scale of the mobile security conflict are overwhelming. A crucial tool for identifying security irregularities in massive volumes of data is developing as artificial intelligence (AI). From a central dashboard, it can suggest activities to meet regulatory obligations or help uncover and remediate malware issues

Edge computing: The ability to move apps closer to their data sources or edge servers is one of the main benefits of 5G. The network may benefit from being close to the source of the data by having faster reaction times and more bandwidth available. From a commercial standpoint, edge computing presents the chance to carry out more thorough data analysis and arrive at deeper insights more quickly.
