In 2017 alone, Gartner estimates the Internet of Things (IoT) could reach 8.4 billion devices—as ZDNet pointed out, that means IoT could outnumber the global population for the first time this year.

Each of these endpoints, which could be anything from smart glasses to the drill of an oil rig, will not only be able to connect to your corporate network but also generate massive amounts of data. With that data, you could discover insights to improve productivity, automation, agility, the customer experience and your security. In fact, more than half of new business processes and systems could leverage IoT by 2020, according to Gartner.

Clearly, IoT, including wearables, is going to have a big impact on our lives and businesses. How do you prepare?

Unified Endpoint Management for Enterprise Wearables

A single, unified endpoint management (UEM) platform allows your organization to manage and secure any endpoint on any platform across any use case. By combining management tools and processes, your IT organization gains efficiencies, as well as visibility and security across your end-user computing (EUC) environment.

Smart watches, smart glasses, printers, Apple TV, Microsoft Surface Hub—unified endpoint management is capable of managing a range of emerging IoT devices, in addition to your existing fleet of mobile devices and laptop computers. In the U.S., 14 million workers could be using smart glasses alone by 2025, expects Forrester.Your organization not only needs to be able handle that scale, but also the onboarding, security and integration challenges of putting augmented reality to work.

&#rsquo;The true value of wearables lies in the line-of-business and workflow applications that enable operational employees real-time, hands-free access to business-critical information needed to do their jobs. In order to successfully deliver this context-sensitive information at the right time and place, it&#rsquo;s imperative that wearable deployments easily integrate with existing enterprise systems.&#rdquo;
