Tech industry analysts are using the new year as an opportunity to project the exciting changes and new innovations of 2014. As has been the case for the past several years, the focus around technology is the advancement of mobility, particularly in the business space.
Many suspect that 2014 will be the year mobility finally becomes commonplace in corporate culture. An article in the online publication SitePoint says this will be the year of the smartphone. Meanwhile, Forbes suggests that rumors of a 12.9 inch iPad Pro mean we may be ushering in an era where tablets become touch-screen desktop devices. Either way, it is going to be a big year for innovation in the mobile industry, which means businesses will have a tremendous opportunity to improve operational efficiency, provided they are able to protect their solutions.
While companies will likely spend the early months of 2014 evaluating potential technology vendors in an attempt to get an early jump on their competitors, they should also evaluate technology insurance providers. Advanced mobility means that business data will be shared and processed at a far greater rate, but that could also make it more vulnerable. Protecting information is essential, and will become even more so as time goes on.
Moreover, new technology solutions will be at risk for theft or damage, particularly if they are mobile. Businesses should be encouraged to invest in technology designed to help them in the new year, which is why insuring these devices is so crucial. Obtaining the right coverage can help companies invest in the technology they need and keep it protected.
