How would you like to be woken up slightly earlier than your alarm because your smartphone detects traffic on your normal work route? Or be sent an apology text if that’s just not what you wanted?
According to Gartner research, your future smartphone will do all this and more by 2017. By gathering personal information through texts, calendars, location services and sensors, your smartphone will know you better than you know yourself.
Will the constant, in-depth collection of all our personal information improve our lives or cause us to hide some information from our phones?
Advanced technology and intelligent apps are quickly turning smartphones into brainiacs, but there’s only so much hardware vendors can keep up with. The apps and cloud are the real stars. However, when devices fail to amaze, manufacturers will take on the blame, perhaps causing malfunctions in data security and mobile asset management.
Coincidentally, Gartner also predicts that by 2017 half of all employers will require employees to supply their own device for work purposes, the phenomenon better known as bring your own device (BYOD). Smartphones will not only gather more of your personal information than you’re aware of, but these future genius devices will be capable of storing and analyzing more company information than desired.
Although IT Organizations will require extra data security and mobile management services in order to monitor where sensitive company information is going, IT asset management organizations are quickly taking initiatives in evolving their mobile services.
